     GiantLoop Testing Records 72 Percent Edge for VERITAS

        The demands of competition, governmental regulation and security now
        require organizations to have not only a solid backup plan and set up
        local availability clusters, but also to replicate critical information
        to remote sites as part of a comprehensive disaster recovery solution.

        Replication allows either a real-time or near real-time replica or copy
        of data to exist at an alternate location which can reduce or eliminate
        potential data loss and dramatically speed application and data recovery
        in a disaster scenario. There are many replication approaches available
        on the market today which make deciding on a replication technology a
        difficult choice.

        In order to ease the decision, The GiantLoop Testing and Certification
        (GTAC) Lab evaluated the usability and performance of enterprise data
        replication solutions based on VERITAS and EMC data replication
        technologies. The basic requirements for a data replication solution to
        be considered "enterprise-class" are that the solution must be stable,
        scalable, high-performance, include complete fail-over protection, and
        have no single point-of-failure.

        Based on independent testing performed by GTAC and documented in the
        GiantLoop Performance results VERITAS Volume Manager[TM] and VERITAS
        Volume Replicator[TM] software mirrors data to a secondary location as
        much as 72 percent faster than SRDF replication software from EMC Corp
        and at a fraction of the cost.

1. SN#9461 VERITAS NetBackup[TM] Manages Large Data Volumes for Lufthansa Systems Infratec

SYSTEM NEWS FOR SUN USERS
Vol 62 Issue 2 2003-04-07  Article 9461 from section "VERITAS"

     Heterogeneous Platform Support

     Lufthansa Systems Infratec develops customized IT infrastructure solutions
     and is the computing center for one of the world's largest airlines. To
     provide these services, Lufthansa Systems Infratec needs 24-hour service
     and data security. They must back up data and have special safe-data
     storage facilities with maximum protection against interruptions.

     When Lufthansa Systems Group restructured and formed Lufthansa Systems
     Infratec, they evaluated many backup software solutions and chose VERITAS
     NetBackup[TM]. They needed a solution that can handle large volumes of data
     and support heterogeneous platforms and applications.

     VERITAS NetBackup accommodates data produced by SAP systems and other
     Oracle-based applications running under the Solaris[TM] Operating
     Environment (Solaris OE), IBM AIX and HP-UX.

     Lufthansa Systems Infratec requires high performance during backup and
     fast, complete restores. VERITAS NetBackup enables the hardware to reach
     maximum data throughput via multiplexing, transferring data streams from up
     to 32 different sources to tape at the same time.

     Lufthansa Systems Infratec deploys eight different environments, each with
     its own master server, that control the planning and execution of all
     backup jobs. All databases are backed up online every day.

     Lufthansa Systems Infratec has a backup volume of approximately 10
     terabytes. To handle such large amounts of data, they use VERITAS Global
     Data Manager[TM]. It allows a single administrator to manage many NetBackup
     storage domains from a central console without any limitations on NetBackup
     master server functions.
