    Scale-on-Scale : Part 3 of 3 - Disaster Recovery Scale-on-Scale : Part 3 of 3 - Disaster Recovery Presentation Transcript

    • How Scale Computing uses Scale's ICOS Storage Webcast 3 of 3 – Using Scale for Disaster Recovery Bill Waller Director of IT
    • Agenda Server/Application Recovery Tips Disaster Recovery Plan Basics Who is Scale? ICOS Why have a DR Plan? Scale Production Environment Backup and Retention
    • Who is Scale?
      • Founded in 2007, Scale Computing has led the way in unified, scale-out, enterprise class storage for small and medium-sized enterprises. The company is rapidly growing with offices in California, Indianapolis and London with global distribution partners.
    • Scale ICOS
      • Every Scale storage cluster is powered by ICOS™ Technology: an advanced storage operating system combining powerful features with intelligence that makes storage easy-to-manage, even for novices.
      Generation 3.0 Storage Scale-Out Architecture Capacity Performance Density Agnostic Unified SAN/NAS No Controllers Thin Provisioning Global Namespace Replication Auto-load balancing Snapshots
    • Why Have a Disaster Recovery Plan?
      • System/Data loss is very expensive
        • Hardware Malfunction
        • Human Error
        • Software Corruption
        • Computer Virus
        • Natural Disaster
      • Government Regulation Compliance
        • Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOA)
        • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
        • European Union Data Protection Directive
        • Patriot Act
      Ontrack Survey 2006
    • Backup & Retention
      • Disk and Tape both have a place for Backup/DR
      • Disk-Based Backup:
        • Automated Process (No need to load/rotate media)
        • Scalable/Highly Available/Redundant storage
      • Tape-Based Backup:
        • Manual Process (Rotate media)
        • Multiple redundant backup sets
      • For Disaster Recovery, you will want the most recent backups
      • Take regular backups of your Critical Data
      • Always retain multiple tested backups
    • Why Plans are Not Made $
    • DR Plan Basics
      • “ Only half of all companies have a DR Plan. Of those that do, nearly half have never tested their plan, which is like not having one at all.”
      • Document all critical systems – Business will not function without them (first to recover)
      • Document system owners – Who is responsible for each system
      • Document support contracts, contact information, and SLA’s
      • Document system configurations
      • Store your DR Plan off-site
      • Backup System Data regularly
      • Test, Test, Test!
    • Steps to Plan
      • The measurements of data protection are:
        • The acceptable amount of time spent to reinstate access to data following a disruption.
        • The acceptable amount of data lost in an outage event, measured in time
      RTO and RPO RTO = Recovery Time Objective RPO = Recovery Point Objective
    • Scale Production Environment
      • Multiple 3-Node R4 Scale Storage Cluster (12TB)
        • Redundant Power and Network Interface Cards (NICs)
      • Scale’s Production Environment
        • 100% Virtualized Environment (ESXi 4.1)
        • Exchange 2010 (DAG)
        • Windows 2008 R2 (Domain Controllers/Active Directory)
        • Linux/CentOS (Web Site/MySQL/Atlassian Tools)
        • 45 Virtual Machines
      • ICOS Snapshots/Replication Off-site
      • Symantec BackupExec 2010
        • Backup for Exchange 2010
        • Backup for vmWare ESXi
    • Server/Application Recovery Tips
      • Keep multiple copies of your DR Plan and one off-site
      • Store copies of application software off-site
      • Document the application installation instructions in your DR plan
      • Determine remote or local restore (RTO)
      • Document support numbers, contract information, and SLA’s
      • Easily restore data to ICOS Scale Storage
    • January 2012 – Scale Production
