Future-Proofed Backup for a Virtualized World

Future-Proofed Backup for a Virtualized World

George Crump, Storage Switzerland, January 2014

Selecting a disk-based backup solution should be more than going with the “default” vendor. Both the architecture of the disk backup system and how it integrates data deduplication can directly impact backup and recovery windows. Understanding and selecting the right disk backup architecture, therefore, is critical to designing a solution that meets business needs both today and into the future.

Gartner Report:  Addressing the Broken State of Backup with a New Category of Disk-Based Backup Solutions

Gartner Report: Addressing the Broken State of Backup with a New Category of Disk-Based Backup Solutions

ExaGrid Report Featuring Gartner Research, February 2014

IT organizations are faced with a number of challenges when managing backup processes such as slow backups, growing backup window, and slow and unreliable restores. Yet the challenges don’t end there. Exponential data growth, proliferation of new applications, and the adoption of virtualization in production environments - combined with the end user’s need for continual data access - impact the storage solution requirements to meet these demands. Effectively addressing these challenges requires a break from traditional backup storage architecture design. New technology advancements are addressing the challenges needed for an improved data protection infrastructure.

Optimizing Approaches to Enterprise Backup and Recovery

Optimizing Approaches to Enterprise Backup and Recovery

IDC Technology Spotlight, February 2014

The use of disk in the data protection process has accelerated in recent years to relieve many of the bottlenecks associated with using traditional storage methodologies including tape. Companies are demanding faster backup, restore and recovery to meet shorter backup windows and recovery time objectives. As a result, many organizations are forgoing tape investments for general-purpose disk storage systems.

How Data Deduplication Impacts Recovery

How Data Deduplication Impacts Recovery

George Crump, Storage Switzerland, January 2014

Storage Switzerland compares data deduplication approaches and identifies three considerations to ensure deduplication does not adversely impact recovery windows and application RTO -- dedupe induced latency, hybrid-powered recoveries, and backup image. Learn the benefits a disk staging landing area can provide as well as when to use a separate disk zone for storing deduplicated backup images. Find out why many organizations interested in simplifying operational management and control choose a unified backup solution that provides a hybrid approach to backup.
