The New Discipline of Recovery Management

Historically, most data protection innovations have focused on ways to create new copies of information. All forms of backup and replication technologies are actually just increasingly clever ways to produce secondary instances of given pieces of data for protection purposes. However, in the past decade, a very real chasm started forming between how enterprises protected data versus how they were generating and utilizing it.

FalconStor and Recovery Management

As the complexity of data protection has accelerated with the introduction of disk-based solutions, we have seen an increasing focus on the value of the recovery process. This is a natural evolution, since disk platforms now provide the speed and reliability necessary to ensure that top-level applications can access the protected data sets that they need, when they need them. Of course, the ability to enable faster, reliable recovery has led to more complexity as users try to optimize their recovery schema across applications and storage platforms.

EMC Storage Insight

In the typical large IT shop, SAN management has become massively more complex in the past 3 years. In addition to a full boat of heterogeneous host environments, we see a range of HBAs and FC switch types, increasingly complex multi-path schema, all linking into multiple types of storage arrays. Along with this SAN element complexity comes equally complex fault management.

EMC E-Lab

EMC E-Lab is much more than an impressive collection of technology and experience – it is a “state of mind”. Nearly a billion dollars’ worth of computer equipment, over a hundred engineers with backgrounds in storage, networking and operating environments and where EMC and non-EMC products are tested for interoperability and much more, E-Lab is often taken for granted by many EMC users and partners alike. In reality it is a deadly competitive weapon for EMC.

New Veritas Storage Foundation

Like many industry observers, we have long imagined Symantec’s Veritas Storage Foundation as that powerful aircraft carrier on which thousands of global enterprises base their entire storage management capabilities. The fact is that when we are talking to enterprise end users, there simply is no ignoring the near ubiquity of this storage management platform. However, if you thought you knew the whole story on Storage Foundation, you would be wrong.

EMC Networker Dashboard

Getting insight into backup and recovery operations has become one of the hotbutton issues in data protection over the past several quarters. Given the growth rates and complexity of backup and restore, discerning a backup group’s status, recoverability, or root failure cause is exceedingly complex. Here is the key insight: the problem is bigger than the backup applications alone. Accordingly, getting insight across the inter-relationships of servers, networks, and storage resources is now absolutely essential.

Veritas Backup Reporter

Data Protection Management (DPM), an emerging product category originally coined by Taneja Group, has emerged to address challenges around aligning backup SLAs with business requirements. DPM technologies deploy alongside the existing backup and recovery infrastructure, providing transparency into the backup process and enabling IT to match the process to business needs. Without the meaningful backup reporting that DPM potentially provides, IT lacks the ways and means of proving to the company – even to themselves – that backups are successfully completing, that service levels are being met, and that backups are serving a variety of stakeholders.

EMC NetWorker Cornerstone

EMC NetWorker was once easily defined as a “backup application”. That reality is now long gone as the company has transitioned NetWorker into a true platform residing in the middle of a range of data-centric operations for the management, monitoring, moving and protecting of data. Specifically, we see that EMC has integrated NetWorker across a wide range of key high-profile offerings including Documentum, VMware, Centera, EDL and Celerra. It has also enabled tighter integration with core applications such as TimeFinder, SnapView, and SnapSure.

Making Your Virtual Infrastructure Non-Stop with Veritas Products

All businesses have a core set of applications and services that are critical to their ongoing operation and growth. They are the lifeblood of a business. Many of these applications and services are run in virtual machines (VM), as over the last decade virtualization has become the de facto standard in the datacenter for the deployment of applications and services. Some applications and services are classified as business critical. These business critical applications require a higher level of resilience and protection to minimize the impact on a business’s operation if they become inoperable.

The ability to quickly recover from an application outage has become imperative in today’s datacenter. There are various methods that offer different levels of protection to maintain application uptime. These methods range from minimizing the downtime at the application level to virtual machine (VM) recovery to physical system recovery. Prior to virtualization, mechanisms were in place to protect physical systems and were based on having secondary hardware and redundant storage systems. However, as noted above, today most systems have been virtualized. The market leader in virtualization, VMware, recognized the importance of availability early on and created business continuity features in vSphere such as vMotion, Storage vMotion, vSphere Replication, vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM), vSphere High Availability (HA) and vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT). These features have indeed increased the uptime of applications in the enterprise, yet they are oriented toward protecting the VM. The challenge, as many enterprises have discovered, is that protecting the VM alone does not guarantee uptime for applications and services. Detecting and remediating VM failure falls short of what is truly vital, detecting and remediating application and service failures.

With application and service availability in mind, companies such as Veritas have come in to provide availability and resiliency for them. Focusing on improving how VMware can deliver application availability, Veritas Technologies LLC. has developed a set of solutions to meet the high availability and disaster recovery requirements of business critical applications. These solutions include Veritas ApplicationHA (developed in partnership with VMware) and Veritas InfoScale Availability (formerly Veritas Cluster Server). Both of these products have been enhanced to work in a VMware-based virtual infrastructure environment.

Full Database Protection Without the Full Backup Plan: Oracle's Cloud-Scaled Zero Data Loss Recovery

Today’s tidal wave of big data isn’t just made up of loose unstructured documents – huge data growth is happening everywhere including in high-value structured datasets kept in databases like Oracle Database 12c. This data is any company’s most valuable core data that powers most key business applications – and it’s growing fast! According to Oracle, in 5 years (by 2020) most enterprises expect 50x data growth. As their scope and coverage grow, these key databases inherently become even more critical to our businesses. At the same time, the sheer number of database-driven applications and users is also multiplying – and they increasingly need to be online, globally, 24 x 7. Which all leads to the big burning question: How can we possibly protect all this critical data, data we depend on more and more even as it grows, all the time?

We just can’t keep taking more time out of the 24-hour day for longer and larger database backups. The traditional batch window backup approach is already often beyond practical limits and its problems are only getting worse with data growth – missed backup windows, increased performance degradation, unavailability, fragility, risk and cost. It’s now time for a new data protection approach that can do away with the idea of batch window backups, yet still provide immediate backup copies to recover from failures, corruption, and other disasters.

Oracle has stepped up in a big way, and marshaling expertise and technologies from across their engineered systems portfolio, has developed a new Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance. Note the very intentional name that is focused on total recoverability – the Recovery Appliance is definitely not just another backup target. This new appliance eliminates the pains and risks of the full database backup window approach completely through a highly engineered continuous data protection solution for Oracle databases. It is now possible to immediately recover any database to any point in time desired, as the Recovery Appliance provides “virtual” full backups on demand and can scale to protect thousands of databases and petabytes of capacity. In fact, it offloads backup processes from production database servers which can increase performance in Oracle environments typically by  25%. Adopting this new backup and recovery solution will actually give CPU cycles back to the business.

In this report, we’ll briefly review why conventional data protection approaches based on the backup window are fast becoming obsolete. Then we’ll look into how Oracle has designed the new Recovery Appliance to provide a unique approach to ensuring data protection in real-time, at scale, for thousands of databases and PBs of data. We’ll see how zero data loss, incremental forever backups, continuous validation, and other innovations have completely changed the game of database data protection. For the first time there is now a real and practical way to fully protect a global corporation’s databases—on-premise and in the cloud—even in the face of today’s tremendous big data growth.

Veritas Embarks on Journey to Transform Cloud Data Management

If you have lots of data, and what enterprise today doesn’t have a massive amount of data, you need to store the data, protect the data, enable access to the data, and more and more you are probably moving at least some of the data to the cloud.

Veritas: Dell EMC’s no marriage made in heaven

In the pre-Symantec days when Veritas was an independent storage software company, its executives frequently bashed their primary competitor EMC. That rhetoric cooled after Symantec bought Veritas, and the chief EMC bashers (including current Dell EMC CMO Jeremy Burton) left Symantec.
