Today, IT organizations are faced with a number of challenges when managing backup processes, including the need for faster backup, restore, tape copy, and recovery times.
IT organizations are faced with ensuring that backups occur in the shortest amount of time and are not operationally disruptive as well as maintaining a timely backup window as data continues to grow.
This paper compares disk based backup architectures, the impact that data deduplication has on backup performance, and how well the solution scales as your backup data grows.
Data deduplication has clear benefits when it comes to efficiently retaining backup data on disk and replicating data offsite for disaster recovery -- you save both disk space and bandwidth by employing deduplication.
Read why scale-out architecture handles data growth very differently than a scale-up architecture. By adopting a scale-out approach the problems of data growth, processing and movement are eliminated and allow you to fix your backup window forever.
This eBook is a "must read" if you are considering a move from tape backup to disk-based backup with deduplication. You may not be aware of the many considerations that need to be assessed.
