GreenBytes Inc., says its GB-X series of storage appliances are now qualified for Symantec’s Backup Exec.
According to the company, users of the GB-X series can use Symantec’s OpenStorage Technology. Symantec pitches OST as a way to offer tighter integration of backup and recovery functions between third-party appliances and Backup Exec.
The GB-X SAN and NAS appliance series – the GB-1000, GB-2000 and GB-4000 – include storage that is scalable from 8 TB to 360 TB, dedupe and a choice of 1GbE or 10GbE connectivity options that can be managed by the Backup Exec interface. The GB-X lineup also supports remote replication, thin provisioning and the ability to make storage snapshots, according to GreenBytes.
