ChalkTalk Video: Key Architecture Requirements for Tackling Hadoop and NoSQL Backup and Recovery

NoSQL and Hadoop typically distribute data through the use of built-in replication technology. The replication process also provides protection from media or server failure. Many IT professionals, as a result, think that they don’t need to backup these environments. In this ChalkTalk Video join Storage Switzerland and Imanis Data to learn why NoSQL databases and Hadoop need point-in-time backup protection and how to correctly implement that protection.

Although NoSQL and Hadoop replication provides protection against media or server failure, it is flawed in several critical ways. The problem with counting on instant replication is that it replicates bad data as quickly as good data. Data corrupted by a bug gets replicated. Fat finger deletions get replicated. Data encrypted by a ransomware attack gets replicated. With replication any corruption instantly replicates to other nodes. If it take a few hours or days to identify the corruption, all traces of the former version of the data may be lost.

That’s why Hadoop and NoSQL environments require point-in-time backups! The challenge is how to actually backup these eventually consistent environments? Their massive scalability, distributed nature, hybrid cloud deployment, and eventually consistent nature require an approach to data protection that is built for petabyte scale, incorporates data awareness, and leverages machine learning.

In the video Storage Switzerland and Imanis discuss how to properly backup Hadoop and NoSQL environments.

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.
