NetApp Unveils Industry's First Solution for Search and Recovery of Online Backup Data

SnapSearch and Recovery Software Enables Customers to Recover Specific Files from Backup and Archive Data in Minutes (February 28, 2006)
Network Appliance, Inc. today unveiled SnapSearch and Recovery software. The new software is the latest move by NetApp to tightly integrate technologies that address, with unmatched content awareness, the ongoing challenges that IT administrators and end users face when searching for backed-up data. SnapSearch and Recovery software for the enterprise provides IT staff, legal teams, and end users with a fast, efficient, simple, and nondisruptive way to restore files from online backup, providing unmatched simplicity for data recovery. SnapSearch and Recovery software is integrated with the Information Server 1200 platform, which NetApp OEMs from Kazeon, a leader in unstructured information management.

SnapSearch and Recovery software, which is tightly integrated with the suite of NetApp Snapshot technologies including, SnapVault software, enables administrators and end users to rapidly search through thousands of consolidated online backups, with a user-friendly and familiar Web-search interface to perform instant restores of individual files or folders. This means customers can more easily meet IT service-level agreements (SLAs) and satisfy the increasingly stringent requirements of legal discovery and regulatory compliance.

SnapSearch and Recovery software helps IT help desks and end users perform advanced searches to greatly simplify the recovery of files, thus eliminating the need to know the precise location or specific name of a file. This means that NetApp SnapVault customers now have the ability to instantly search and recover backup data distributed across data centers and remote offices from a central location. With hundreds or even thousands of online backups often stored online, SnapSearch and Recovery software visually displays which files are identical and which are unique, making file recovery easier than ever before.

Additionally, built-in data classification and migration capabilities enable NetApp administrators to enhance their SnapVault backup and SnapMirror data-replication operating environments by reducing the number of files on primary storage that are regularly backed up and replicated by classifying and migrating files onto secondary storage. The results are dramatic: improved primary storage usage, reduced backup windows for primary storage, and significantly less data being replicated.

"Our collaboration with NetApp offers the ultimate solution for enterprises looking to gain complete visibility and instant recovery of online backup data," said Michael Marchi, VP of Solution Marketing at Kazeon. "By quickly delivering this deep integration and bringing SnapSearch and Recovery software to market, we're demonstrating that our partnership with NetApp is bringing immediate value and measurable benefits to our customers."

"NetApp is focused on bringing customers solutions that reduce the complexity and cost of comprehensive enterprise data protection," said Patrick Rogers, VP of Products and Partners at Network Appliance. "Today we are providing customers with improved visibility and rapid data recovery."

Today's announcement demonstrates the commitment of both NetApp and Kazeon to quickly deliver valuable new solutions as a result of the OEM agreement announced in October of 2005.
