Application and data availability can make or break a business. These days backing up to the Cloud is a simple, cost effective way to get the advantages of a datacenter without the expense of creating and managing a physical center.
If businesses are recognizing the need for a dial-tone approach to establishing “data utility” services for meeting user expectations for data accessibility, availability and quality, it is incumbent upon the information management practitioners to ensure that the organization is properly prepared, from both a policy/process level and a technology level.
In this competitive whitepaper, Edison Group provides an independent, third-party perspective and evaluation of HP's new B6200 StoreOnce Backup System versus EMC Data Domain. Criteria considered included scalability (including capacity and performance), high availability, architectural approach, pricing, and licensing.
This report describes how improving the efficiency of data storage, deduplication solutions has enabled organizations to cost-justify the increased use of disk for backup and recovery. However, the changing demands on IT storage infrastructures have begun to strain the capabilities of initial deduplication products. To meet these demands, a new generation of deduplication solutions is emerging which scale easily, offer improved performance and availability and simplify management and integration within the IT storage infrastructure. HP refers to this new generation as "Deduplication 2.0.

"Businesses understand more than ever that they depend on data for insight and competitive advantage. And when it comes to data, they have always wanted easy access and fast performance.
But how is the situation different now? Today, organizations want those elements and more. They want IT to strip away the limitations of time with faster deployment of new databases and applications. They want IT to reduce the limitations of distance by giving remote and branch offices better and more reliable access. And in a global world where business never stops, they want IT to ensure data availability around the clock.
If IT can deliver databases and applications faster, on a more automated and consistent basis, to more locations without having to commit onsite resources, IT will be free to focus on more strategic projects."

Enterprises with mission critical applications are exploring the benefits of disaster recovery sites for their data centers to ensure business continuity. Special network technology is needed to ensure that site failover and failback occurs reliably and predictably. An ideal solution should provide reliable network connections, manage inbound and outbound traffic over multiple WAN links, failover to a secondary data center if all links at the primary data center are down, and eliminate deployment barriers and costs of multi-homing with BGP (Border Gateway Protocol).
For AIX IT departments looking to take the next step in data protection strategies, CDP is an essential consideration.
