This session will explore how using virtualized disks to store data backups is reducing backup/restore times and increasing reliability. With the ability to incorporate high-performance Solid State Drives and
high-capacity drives, there are a wide range of options available to come up with the right balance of speed and capacity to meet your RPO/RTO targets. Taking advantage of advanced deduplication techniques, you can have immediate access to petabytes of backups, as well as cost-effective offsite copies to support disaster recovery/business continuity. For those operations with longer-term archiving requirements like HIPAA, data can be selectively moved to your tape devices
automatically in the background.
Using different approaches depending on the size and specifics of the backup tasks, you will see many options to addressing backup challenges, whether on IBM iSeries, p-, x-, or other platforms. One solution can be a centralized management point for all your backups, even with dissimilar operating systems and software. Deployment and implementation is straightforward using existing software, connections, and equipment. From the company who developed the industry's first virtual tape library, you will learn strategies that can make long, painful and unreliable backups a thing of the past.
