  1. 1. CentricStor Virtual TapeIntelligent DataProtectionRadu ClimescuBucharest, January, 2009
  2. 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. 3. Why Tape Virtualisation?3 Product Marketing CentricStor © Fujitsu Siemens Computers 2008 All rights reserved
  4. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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
