Benefit from these key features with NetVault SmartDisk:

Powerful data deduplication
You can pack up to 12 times more protected data into the same storage area with byte-level, variable block-size deduplication.

Rapid deployment
NetVault SmartDisk integrates seamlessly with NetVault Backup and vRanger, providing you with a single solution that you can easily deploy and manage.

Deployment of multiple instances
You can distribute network, disk and deduplication resources and improve load balancing and performance.

Shared storage support
Simplify data storage by consolidating all of your physical and virtual backups.

Efficient replication
Replicate deduplicated data (and catalog) from a primary SmartDisk instance to a secondary SmartDisk target. Replication is super-efficient because only unique bytes are sent over the wire. This will enable you to recover data from the disk faster and with more reliability in a disaster.

Fast restores
Shorter recovery time objectives (RTOs) allow you to minimize downtime, enabling you to enjoy the freedom to focus on other critical tasks.
