Robust data protection and fast recovery are prerequisite in today’s fast information age. The need for reliable yet flexible backup solutions has only become stronger over the last years as data volumes have increased at exponential rates and the associated financial loss have equally widened.
To address the challenges faced by companies, leading IT manufacturers have come up with various backup solutions offering unique value propositions and featuring next-generation technologies. Here we discuss two of these latest technologies: virtual backup (or, 'virtualisation') and data deduplication. These backup technologies provide companies of all sizes and IT requirements with unique solutions tailored to businesses’ unique needs.
With the growth of data virtualisation, IT manufacturers have come up with backup and replication systems ideal for virtual environments. Virtual backups provide complete protection for virtual environments through local and online storage, therefore enabling offices to restore files regardless of the time and location where they were backed up.
vPower™ is a 2-in-1 backup and replication system for virtual environments. With vPower™, Veeam provides a comprehensive protection for business virtual environment, offering backup and replication through one solution, at one price. This gives companies flexibility to meet different recovery objectives for different virtual machines.Download Veeam vPower Product Overview (1.7 MB)
Described by some as one the 'hottest' technologies in data storage, data deduplication has certainly been receiving a lot of attention in recent months, especially with the growth of server virtualisation. Indeed, the two go hand in hand. While server virtualisation enables multiple computers to connect to a single host computer, data deduplication maximises the utilisation of resources through further consolidation and footprint reduction. With its breakthrough data compression technique, data deduplication eliminates redundant files therefore reducing the capacity required for data protection and accelerating data recovery.
The HP D2D Backup Systems with HP StoreOnce deduplication provide disk-based data protection for data centers and remote offices. The HP D2D automates and consolidates the backup of multiple servers onto a single, rack-mountable device while improving reliability by reducing errors caused by media handling. All HP D2D Backup Systems feature HP StoreOnce deduplication software for efficient, data retention on disk, fast file restore and replication that is network efficient and reduces the cost of transmitting data off-site for disaster recovery. The D2D Backup Systems integrate seamlessly into any IT environment and offer the flexibility of both virtual tape library and NAS targets.Download P StorageWorks Product Overview (949 KB)
