First step is to fix backup with disk based data protectionand deduplication2. Step 2 eliminates backup bulk data movement withsnapshots and continuous data protection3. Leverage protection storage for test and development4. Virtualize everything to consolidate and commoditize5. Centralize and automate operations

Usage RightsCopyright © 2013 FalconStor Software · All Rights ReservedName of Presentation9Current Costs with TapeAssuming LTO3 drives and 20 terabytes of productiondata:• 20TB x 5 week retention = 110TB/400GB (capacity of LTO3) = 282tapes• 282 x $28 per tape media = $7,896• 80MB/s (speed of LTO3) = 6.91TB per day• To backup 20TB in a 12-hour window, you need 6 drives• LT03 Library with 6 drives = $4,500 x 6 = $27,000Total = $34,896 for each 20TB ProtectedPhase 1: Fix Backup

Usage RightsCopyright © 2013 FalconStor Software · All Rights ReservedName of Presentation13Implement snapshots and CDP based recoveryAssuming the cost of downtime is calculated using the numbers provided in my chart for amedia company (340K per hour) and an average current recovery time of four hours, thecalculations are as follows:• Current outage costs $340,000 x 4 hours = $1,360,000• Cost of new CDP solution = $200,000(assumes 2 sites at $100,000 per location)• Recovery time for CDP solution = 30 minutes($340,000 per hour / 30 min = $170,000)• Optimized outage costs $1,160,000 – ($170,000+$200,000)($1,160,000 - $370,000) = $790,000Savings of $790,000 savings per outage.Phase 2: Calculating the Benefits
