Even with the addition of a virtual tape library (VTL) solution to the backup environment, performance bottlenecks caused by inefficiencies on the host side of the backup process remain a challenge. This can now be addressed with an add-on to FalconStor VTL that accelerates backups four to eight-fold and reduces impact on production servers.
IBM Virtualization Engine TS7700 is a virtual-tape solution designed to optimize tape processing. With one solution, the implementation of a fully integrated tiered storage hierarchy of disk and tape takes advantage of the benefits of both technologies to enhance performance and provide the capacity needed for today’s tape processing requirements.
Small and mid-sized businesses are a market that has been underserved by data protection software, appliances and online backup services until the last few years.Yet, these organizations have the same needs as large enterprises to protect their data. Full-time, dedicated IT resources are often beyond their means.
Read this case study to learn how a major global media and entertainment company achieved significant benefits and efficiency gains by implementing a virtual tape library solution to streamline their nightly data backup process.
Email archiving is a burgeoning market at a time when many storage pros are faced with increasing ediscovery requests and compliance regulations. Listen to this podcast to find out the latest developments in email archiving.
This paper details an analysis of the HP D2D Product Line, which provides both disk to disk and VTL backup. In June 2010, the product line was updated to include StoreOnce, HP Labs developed inline data deduplication, along with a number of other enhancements.
Customers are confronting the confusing number of options and configurations when it comes to backing up and restoring their network attached storage servers. This paper addresses this by describing the best practices for protecting and recovering NAS devices utilizing the Network Data Management Protocol.
Data backups have evolved dramatically from the days of producing a nightly backup to tape. Modern data protection techniques start with backup targets such as tape libraries and virtual tape libraries to deduplicating disk arrays, integrated backup appliances and the cloud.
