Taneja Group Avamar Product - Profile

The combination of continued data growth, shrinking backup windows and increasingly stringent recovery time objectives are pushing traditional tapecentric backup architectures to their breaking point. Staggering backup failure rates, reliability issues, and inability to hit backup windows have forced IT administrators to search for alternatives.

EMC Centera And The New Era of Disk Archival - Technology Brief

Disk-based archiving answers many challenges in the enterprise, but this strong new trend also creates many new questions for end users. Specifically, because of their distinct architectural approaches. Taneja Group sees some confusion regarding the question of whether to deploy a traditional file system or an object storage (e.g. Content Addressed Storage, or CAS) approach in support of an enterprise archival initiative.

Capacity Optimization Technologies - Technology in Depth

The past 3 years have seen rapid and significant shifts in how storage solutions approach capacity management. A new class of archiving and backup solutions on the market are now achieving massive levels of capacity efficiencies, far beyond any technology in history. To date, the industry has not collectively agreed on a common descriptor for this extremely critical enabling technology, and therein rests the purpose of this report.

The Importance of Operational Simplicity in Selecting Disk-to-Disk Data Protection Solutions

Without question, Disk-to-Disk (D2D) backup has emerged in recent years to become a critical storage component of an enterprises’ data protection environment. With enterprises experiencing accelerating data growth rates, they typically will use tape media for long-term archives, but use disk for online and nearline backup and restores. Sensing a new
market opportunity, a multitude of vendors has responded to the lure of this enterprise market, resulting in a wide range of alternatives when it comes to D2D data protection. However, whether or not those alternatives are well suited to solve an end users’ specific D2D challenges can be difficult to ascertain.

Quantum Establishing Itself as a Formidable Player in Data De-Duplication - Opinion

Quantum has been quietly strengthening its position in the data protection market via internal development, acquisition, and pragmatic leveraging of its technology, as is evident in the area of data de-duplication. Through its acquisition of ADIC in August 2006, Quantum now has fundamental intellectual property in data de-duplication technology developed by Rocksoft, which had earlier been acquired by ADIC. While on the surface this was just one element of a much broader deal, we believe its implications go much deeper than what is visible so far.

EMC’s Next Generation Backup and Archival Strategy - Technology In Depth

With each passing year, we have watched enterprise backup and archive environments continue to rise in both architectural and management complexity. When we look under the covers, it seems companies no longer have a single data protection strategy, but rather multiple point strategies for various functional areas, locations, or processes. We believe this is a seriously big problem if left unaddressed by the industry. In our research, we have discovered that a good part of this condition results from the unintentional ad hoc cobbling together of point products required to address the increasingly diverse backup and archiving needs of an enterprise. Ultimately, when we look outside the data center to also include remote and branch offices, workgroups and departments, as well as multiple data centers, the challenge of federating these various data protection schema appears quite daunting.

The evolution of data deduplication technology continues

New technologies come to market as value-add features for existing mainstream products that are then later merged into these products. It's often the only way a new vendor can bring a product to market, like what happened with data deduplication technology.

In the Cloud Era, The Era of Convergence Is Upon Us

The era of IT infrastructure convergence is upon us. Every major vendor has some type of offering under this category. Startups and smaller players are also "talking" convergence. But what exactly is convergence and why are all the vendors so interested in getting included in this category? We will explain below the history of convergence, what it is, what it is not, what benefits accrue from such systems, who the players are, and who is leading the pack in true convergence.

Ready or not, converged infrastructure systems are here

Converged infrastructures assemble components from multiple IT domains into one integrated system by combining virtualization, storage, networking and compute. A management framework is also included that allows orchestration of the entire infrastructure so that each constituent technology doesn't have to be managed separately. But from that set of basic parameters, the individual flavors vary significantly, and those different flavors are well worth a closer look.

DP Designed for Flash - Better Together: HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage and StoreOnce System

Flash technology has burst on the IT scene within the past few years with a vengeance. Initially seen simply as a replacement for HDDs, flash now is triggering IT and business to rethink a lot of practices that have been well established for decades. One of those is data protection. Do you protect data the same way when it is sitting on flash as you did when HDDs ruled the day? How do you take into account that at raw cost/capacity levels, flash is still more expensive than HDDs?  Do data deduplication and compression technologies change how you work with flash? Does the fact that flash technology is injected most often to alleviate severe application performance issues require you to rethink how you should protect, manage, and move this data?

These questions apply across the board when flash is injected into storage arrays but even more so when you consider all-flash arrays (AFAs), which are often associated with the most mission-critical applications an enterprise possesses. The expectations for application service levels and data protection recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) are vastly different in these environments. Given this, are existing data protection tools adequate? Or is there a better way to utilize these expensive assets and yet achieve far superior results? The short answer is yes to both.

In this Opinion piece we will focus on answering these questions broadly through the data protection lens. We will then look at a specific case of how data protection can be designed with flash in mind by considering the combination of flash-optimized HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage, HPE StoreOnce System backup appliances, and HPE Recovery Management Central (RMC) software. These elements combine to produce an exceptional solution that meets the stringent application service requirements and data protection RTOs and RPOs that one finds in flash storage environments while keeping costs in check.
