SlideShare: How Snapshots CAN be Backups

Snapshots have been a key feature of primary storage infrastructures that IT professionals have relied on for years. In fact, many use snapshots as their first recovery option when their primary data copy is compromised. But storage systems have traditionally been limited regarding the number of snapshots they could keep active without impacting performance and capacity utilization. Snapshots are also susceptible to a primary storage system failure, since they’re not actual copies of data, but only pointers to that data. As a result most IT professionals use snapshots sparingly. In this webinar Storage Switzerland and Nexenta show you how primary storage can be architected so that snapshots are able to meet almost all of the data protection requirements an organization has.

In this webinar learn:

  • The Types of Snapshot Technologies (they’re not all the same)
  • The Weaknesses of Snapshots
  • How to Create Primary Storage Architecture that Overcomes these Weaknesses
  • The Benefits of Primary Storage-driven Data Protection

By the conclusion of the webinar you will have an actionable strategy to create a primary storage infrastructure that can replace much of the data protection process, while significantly improving your ability to meet recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives.

Viewers of this webinar will receive a copy of Storage Switzerland’s latest white paper “Designing Primary Storage that Eliminates the Data protection Process“.

In addition, all registrants will be able to access Storage Switzerland’s extensive library of on-demand webinars, many with exclusive white papers, without having to re-register.
