Symantec has had a long-standing relationship with Compellent allowing for integration of many Storage & Symantec Solutions - spanning Data Protection, Deduplication, Archive, Storage Management, and Availability solutions.
With Symantec Backup Exec and Dell EqualLogic PS Series arrays working together, you can take advantage of highly reliable and robust SAN-based data protection. By using snapshot based backups you can decrease backup windows, maximize storage efficiency, and enable rapid restore. Your backups run more efficiently and you can quickly overcome unexpected data loss by recovering to a last known good state from your backup assets. Additionally, Symantec supports Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) technology that enables the coordination of application-aware snapshots for Microsoft applications with the EqualLogic PS Series arrays.
Primary storage dedicated to old or infrequently accessed data not only can waste precious space, but it also can cost time and money to manage, maintain and back up. Together Symantec™ Enterprise Vault and the Dell™ DX Object Storage Platform address storage cost and resource issues by providing a centralized, integrated content archiving solution that pulls unstructured information together to simplify management, reduce redundant information, and maintain data integrity at all points of maturity.
