Learn how to transparently migrate to the market-leading FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library (VTL) solution with global deduplication without any change to your existing data and without impacting your backup and restore operations.
Serverless migration can help you upgrade aging and restricted physical and virtual tape environments without the typical complexities of migration, while providing numerous advantages:
- Fastest backup speeds to meet your backup window
- Flexible deduplication policies lets you choose the method that best suits your organization
- Cluster scalability for high performance and high availability (HA)
- Symantec NetBackup OpenStorage (OST) support with tape-out functionality

    • Copyright © 2013 FalconStor Software · All Rights ReservedTransparent Migration from Legacy Backup Solutions to Global Deduplication Solutions5First Fix - Calculating the Benefits ofDeduplicationSituation: 20 terabytes of production data and 110 terabytes of tape based on data retentionrequirements. (2% growth, 3% change rate, 5 week retention)Assuming LTO3 drives and 20 terabytes of production data:• 110TB/400GB (capacity of LTO3) = 1,126,420/400 = 282 tapes• Media Costs: 282 x $70 = $19,740• 80MB/s (speed of LTO3) = 6.91TB per day• To backup 20TB in a 12-hour window, you need 6 drives• Drive Costs: 6 drives = $4,500 x 6 = $27,000• Total = $46,740 for each 20TB.Dedupe to the rescue:Savings:• Implement a single 5.5TB dedupe appliance that will hold 110TB at 20:1 ratio = approx. $17,700• $46.740 – $17,700 = $29.040 in savings, or 160 percent!• 97% WAN savings for replicated data• Rapid local recovery• DR recovery in hours versus days!
