  • 1. CentricStor Virtual TapeIntelligent DataProtectionRadu ClimescuBucharest, January, 2009
  • 2. Content Why Tape Virtualisation? CentricStor  Integrating the best of both worlds – disk and tape  Saving costs with consolidation2 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  • 3. Why Tape Virtualisation?3 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  • 4. Why Companies look at VTLs Tape Drive Backup Job  Backup jobs not completing?  Tape drive utilisation low?  Tape drive quality problems?  Aggressive recovery time objectives (RTO)?  High operating costs of nearline infrastructure? © by Sophie Graf4 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved

  • 8. Tape back-up … But Tape is Still Important © by Sophie Graf  Best economy of scale  Best medium for long term archiving  Most energy efficient way of storing data  Less error prone than disk  52% of disk & tape users plan to increase tape usage*  13% decrease of disk only systems in 2007*  58% of disk only users plan to start using tape* © by Sophie Graf *) according to Fleishman-Hillard8 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  • 9. Integrating the best of both worlds How CentricStor addresses both worldsFocus Backup Application on Core Competence Policy Driven Mgmt of Storage Location No need to actively manage the Backup Appl. storage location of a saveset  Long term / less access on CentricStor tape Offload media mgmt tasks to CentricStor  Demanding RTO on disk LD LD  Short term data on disk only  Critical data on mirrored disk / multiple tape copies LV LV Improve Quality of Tape Operation logical  No stressful start/stop operation physical  Automatic tape reorganisation PD PD  Automatic tape refreshing PV PV  Dual / Triple Save / Vaulting Physical Library  Seamless migration to new tape technologies9 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved

  • 14. Support future growth and standards: No limits – unmatched scalability CentricStor Grid Architecture  The “centric” storage for data protection  Modular building blocks  Designed for unlimited disk cache  Performance  actual models with > 2 PB capacity (compressed)  1.500.000 Virtual Volumes  Scalability in all dimensions  Frontend - Virtual tape drives - Throughput  Backend - Physical tape drives - Backup capacity14 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  • 15. Business continuity: Protected data needs to be replicated CentricStor Grid Architecture Redundant data protection  Building blocks spread across  Active-active disk cache mirroring different physical locations  Immediate recovery after a site outage  Long distance connections  Automated triple save for tape:  Automatic failover against site outages - two local copies against media errors  Unmatched disaster resilience - third copy at the vault location15 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  • 16. Seamless change to future technology: Some data has to be stored for years True Tape Virtualization Without server drawback  Always the newest tape technology  Seamless swap  Technology change by CentricStor VT  Maintain only one current standard  Easy doubling physical library capacity  Always the most economic footprint16 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  • 17. Support different retention policies: ILM with disk and tape CentricStor VT - the only “Dual Target” virtual tape solution on the market  Optional choice of  D2D2T / long term  D2D / short term lifetime of your backup Economic use of disk  Compression of tape data before entering disk Tape encryption  Protection against loss of data  Seamless plug-in integration  Best of breed encryption appliances17 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  • 18. The most energy efficient technology: Green Storage – CentricStor VT The most advanced integration of tape  Not all data needs to be stored on disk  Resource usage appropriate to the value of data  Tape is still the most energy efficient way to store data  Managed tape storage needs less power than comparable disk solutions Consolidation reduces  Total cost of backup storage  Footprint for backup and archiving  Power consumption  Data center air conditioning18 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
