Archiving / Backup & Recovery enables you to create an accessible online data store that facilitates and safeguards company-critical information for extended periods of time, significantly lowers corporate costs and risks, and increases end user productivity and organizational efficiency.
Thirty percent of computer users say they spend the equivalent of one week per year reconstructing lost data. Forty percent of small- and medium-sized businesses don’t back up data at all. For companies of all sizes, there is an ever-increasing emphasis on protecting an organization’s business-critical data from local, regional, or global disasters. Vastly increasing file-based storage requirements make it ever more difficult to meet recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) with tape-based back-up systems. And yet, disk-to-disk back-up with legacy storage often is impractical due to high costs and the snapshot limitations of aging technology. So, to stay competitive, businesses need to reduce downtime, ensure critical information always is protected, and that vital data can be accessed or restored in seconds if needed.
For the first time, customers can protect vital business data using NexentaStor-based disk-to-disk backup, without vendor lock-in or the limitations of aged, legacy technologies. Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) integration allows NexentaStor to support all industry leading applications, and NexentaStor’s unlimited file system size means that all your data can be copied, replicated, and backed up as needed, quickly meeting recovery point objectives, by utilizing unlimited full or incremental snapshot capabilities.
NexentaStor’s archiving and back-up provides mirroring, RAID (software), HA Plug-in, and snapshot-based replication, which includes asynchronous (Auto-Sync, Auto-Tier), thereby reducing data loss risk. With integrated deduplication, users can optimize the network across physical and virtual environments, greatly reducing the amount of data to be backed up and stored.
Overall, NexentaStor, the leading hardware independent storage solution built upon the ZFS technology, eliminates redundant back-ups, reduces business downtime, and ensures critical information always is protected and can be restored in seconds. With it, corporate compliance and rules of governance for data retention are easily managed. Users can reuse information across lines of business and industry. And the entire back-up environment can be managed from a single console. With this improved IT efficiency comes increased user productivity, which easily can be sustained throughout future technology changes.
- Single console management, via Web-based GUI, oversees entire lifecycle of storage
- Built-in software RAID protection: redundant array of independent disks for storing the same data in different places
- Snapshot-based replication: replication between databases, where data is updated at specified times by copying data changes.
- NDMP Integration: Open protocol used to control data backup and recovery communications between primary and secondary storage in a heterogeneous network environment.
- Integrated inline (not post-process) deduplication: Deduplicate data before it is stored to disk, thereby lowering total amount of required data storage.
Information has become the business. With NexentaStor, data is available and sustainable in a reliable and cost-efficient manner. Data capacity is higher while infrastructure and administrative costs are reduced by up to 70%. Information always is searchable and can be shared across lines of business. Data is maintained securely, providing businesses with the archiving and back-up they require. And that’s what matters.
