Virtualization specific backup applications, like Veeam, are the fastest growing segment of the data protection market, and for good reason. They promise to provide better, faster and more accurate data protection, while almost eliminating application recovery times. But the challenge is, your backup architecture can actually render many of the value-added features of VM specific backup applications totally useless. In this webinar, join Storage Switzerland’s founder George Crump and ExaGrid’s Kevin Russell, VP of North America Systems Engineers, for an interactive discussion of what these challenges are and more importantly how to solve them.
Watch the webinar On Demand "The five ways your Backup Design can Impact Virtualized Data Protection"
There are five key capabilities of virtualization specific backup solutions that your backup architecture may render useless. This is due to the fact that backup applications, like Veeam, expect to directly attach to traditional RAID storage, with no additional features enabled, like deduplication, compression or replication. Typically found in purpose built backup appliances, these features can actually make full backups, changed block backups, consolidated full backups and replication jobs all take significantly longer. These backup systems may also require that features native to the VM backup application, like source side deduplication and replication be turned off; eroding the value of the solution and the simplicity of its operation.
In this webinar, you will learn about the challenges IT planners face when trying to combine purpose built backup appliances and VM specific backup software solutions like Veeam. Those challenges are:
- The Full Backup Challenge
- The Changed Block Backup Challenge
- The Consolidated Full Challenge
- The Replication Challenge
- The Instant Recovery Challenge
