Information is becoming the currency of the 21st century, and organizations of all sizes are creating more information than ever
before. Frequently, organizations struggle with how best to balance storage requirements with available budgets. The benefits of greater storage capacity are clear: better change management and roll-back, easier archival and discovery, reliable backup and
recovery. But to continually grow on-site capacity requires unsustainable investment and introduces unnecessary risk. Prominent cloud service providers present an appealing alternative with their vast amounts of storage, offering low cost, high availability, and built-in redundancy. Riverbed’s Whitewater® family of cloud storage gateways is a drop-in replacement for existing tape- and diskbased backup targets, cuts backup costs 30-50% compared to tape and disk, and provides effective DR capability with minimal effort.
After a decade and a half optical technologies in the enterprise storage market account for only a fraction of 1% of enterprise storage hardware spending. For a traditional optical-based enterprise storage supplier, these are tough facts to acknowledge. Yet there will be a dramatically different future.
To put it simply, data protection is complicated. Simplifying it involves assessing solutions for their near-term and long-term value. This paper examines the less obvious- but not less important - issues in simplifying backup.
Most data storage devices can be broadly characterized as either fixed media or removable media. This paper briefly examines and compares magnetic tape, magneto-optical disk, and removable magnetic disks, and identifies their positioning, future trends, and market applications.
Most companies continue to turn their backs on backup encryption because they think it will lead to new costs, performance problems, and recovery headaches. Read why ESG believes things are about to change to radically upset the backup encryption status quo and why Spectra Logic's recent entry into backup encryption is worth noting.
Disk in the form of - that is, disk presented as tape - can be added without requiring huge changes to existing backup strategies. This is more straightforward than adding disk into an existing environment, because adding disk without the VTL interface requires complex and unavoidable changes to existing strategies.
By utilizing the speed and reliability of the EMC CLARiiON® AX150 networked storage system and the convenience of EMC Retrospect® 7.5 for Windows backup and recovery software, SMBs can implement fast, effective, reliable data protection that is easy to set up and manage without placing undue strain on IT resources.
