Taking Backup and Recovery in a new direction – Do things differently!


Published on

As organisations continue their journey into the world of virtualisation it soon becomes apparent they will face new challenges especially when it comes to their data backup and recovery strategy. The road to successful backup and recovery can be a bumpy ride, however if you have the right vehicle you can just sit back and drive. Potential failure looms when organisations look to use the same technologies for both physical and virtual server backups, as well as trying to make legacy processes fit into the virtual world. However, research has proven that when it comes to virtualisation you need a different approach to fundamentally deliver the results. Game-changing advances in technology overcome the limitations of traditional methods of data protection and management and help you leverage the power of virtualisation. Also understand how advanced monitoring helps you identify and respond rapidly to problems in your virtual environment and how accurate reporting helps you plan not just for the future but also help you understand your systems capabilities

  10. 10. Backing up virtual with traditional Legacy backup software Don’t fully embrace the virtual paradigm Agents bog down ESX performance Too expensive Additional product for disaster recovery
  11. 11. Veeam solution for VMs protectionDesigned for virtualization Leverages latest virtualization technologies Agentless, proven architecture Saves licensing, storage and operational costs 2-in-1: Backup and Replication
  12. 12. Veeam solution for VMs protectionDesigned for virtualization Supports ESX(i) and Hyper-V Makes full use of platform API’s Simple socket based licensing. No client or application licenses Full ESX and Hyper-V backup plus replication in one console
  13. 13. Backup scalability challenges Dispersed and growing virtual environments More VMs to backup Heterogeneous VM environments Backup to / from remote offices for DR Understand Cloud but struggle to work with it
  14. 14. Veeam solution for backup scalabilityBuilt for SMBs and enterprises Scalable architecture to fit backup requirements Supports heterogeneous environments Centralized management console with simple proxy deployment Optimized backup and replication to / from remote locations
  15. 15. Veeam solution for backup scalabilityBuilt for SMBs and enterprises Proxy architecture, optimized data transfer and flexible repository support Backup, restore, replicate to different hardware platforms – DR Failover / Failback Server console for deployment and configuration. Web based console for simple restores and job management Uses Dedupe and compression technologies. Also provides Re-IP for VMWare failover
  16. 16. Granular restore challenges Multiple backups for VM or item restore Restore a whole VM from backup in case of major failure Restore a file from Windows or Linux VM backup Restore individual items from any virtualized application Manual search for files within backups
