Deleting data is good, as long as you know what to delete. That's the pitch from Symantec, which on Tuesday released two new products -- Enterprise Vault 9.0 and the NetBackup 5000 appliance -- aimed at helping companies store less data, yet still find what they need.

Enterprise Vault 9.0, which archives emails, files, IMs and more, adds support for Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 and SharePoint 2010, as well as Domino 8.5.1. "We've actually seen nice growth in the Domino user base, so we're continuing to invest in that," said Brian Dye, vice president of product management for Symantec's information management group.

The product's underlying Discovery Collector will handle e-discovery "from the endpoint to the archive," said Dye, and with this release gains a live collection capability, meaning that it can grab live or in-progress documents that haven't yet been archived from SharePoint.

Meanwhile, an add-on called Discovery Accelerator 9.0 adds deduplication for e-discovery search results, so that when attorneys review emails, they don't have to see both a sender's outgoing email and the receiver's identical incoming email. According to Dye, "there's tons of money to be saved by giving the lawyers only what they need, and giving it to them quickly."

Symantec also announced the release of its new NetBackup 5000 deduplication appliance, which provides "deduplication at the source -- where the data is," said Dye, who characterizes the appliance as "dedupe in a box." He said that while Symantec will introduce further appliances, it's not looking to become a hardware company, but rather is responding to customer requests for a plug-and-play storage device with backup software and deduplication built in. The appliance has up to 96 TB of dedupe capacity and can protect up to 1PB of data with a backup throughput of up to 4.2 TB per hour per node.

Organizations will typically use the NetBackup appliance either as a standalone deduplication storage appliance, for example in a remote office -- with the data it stores then being replicated for disaster recovery purposes -- or else as a part of a storage pool used in conjunction with Symantec's NetBackup 6.5 or 7 software.
