ChalkTalk Video: Unstructured Data Protection Needs a New Architecture

Unstructured data has changed dramatically over the past decade. It is not only bigger in terms of capacity, it’s also bigger in terms of quantity, there are just more files to deal with than ever. On top of the increase in size and quantity, unstructured data is more critical to the organization than it was in the past.

The problem is that unstructured data protection methods haven’t changed much in the last decade. Either the backup software repeatedly walks the file system looking for changed files or it does an image backup of the file system volume. The time for change is now, something that combines the detailed information of a file system walk with the performance of image backups. In this informative ChalkTalk Video, George Crump, founder of Storage Switzerland and Rod Christensen, Co-Founder and CTO at Aparavi, talk through the problems with the current unstructured data protection methods and how Aparavi solves these challenges with its new architecture.

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
