Cloud Computing and Streamlined Data Protection

Cloud Computing and Streamline Data Protection

One of the greatest challenges today is effectively backing up and protecting the vast amounts of data stored throughout an organization. With WAN optimization, you can accelerate network-based backup by 5x and can reduce bandwidth use by up to 95%. Download this paper and learn more about this strategy today.

Wide area network (WAN)-based approaches to data backup are dramatically influenced by WAN bandwidth limitations and network latency. Without significant, costly WAN bandwidth upgrades this can make WAN-based backup impossible for large remote offices with significant data stores. Riverbed makes network-based backup feasible, in many cases through use of existing WAN links, without the need for bandwidth upgrades.

Our intelligent, storage-specific optimizations yield higher data reduction ratios for the common enterprise workloads seen in SRDF/A environments at both the network and application level, enabling enterprises to realize up to a 30:1 compression while maintaining a high throughput.

Streamlined Data Protection

The Pain of Managing Tape Backups in Branch Offices
For many organizations, enterprise data protection remains a real challenge. Forrester (2010) cites 73% of those surveyed ranking disaster recovery as a top priority, but also cautions that many aren’t as well prepared as they think.

Part of the difficulty stems from important data being distributed across many sites, requiring a mechanism to transport it offsite or to a central repository.

Common problems with tape backups in branch offices:

  • Cost of equipment for tape stackers, tapes, and maintenance drains both CAPEX and OPEX budgets
  • Administration and support of backup operations in locations without local IT staff is difficult
  • Tape duplication, off-site vaulting, and tracking adds additional cost and complexity
  • Transport of unencrypted tapes increases security risk for exposure of sensitive data
  • Encryption of tapes requires key administration and can reduce recovery rates

As a result of all these issues, more and more companies are looking into moving away from tape backup and physical transportation of branch data, and instead are exploring using their wide area networks (WANs) to move the data back to the data center. Either backup or replication can be performed across the WAN, depending on preference and existing infrastructure, but centralization of secondary storage solves most of the problems cited above.

Many are also exploring public cloud storage offerings as a simple, cost-effective alternative to managing backup and archive storage themselves.
