  • Why Modernized is critical (aka Putting the Genie back in the Bottle )(dimensions in blue) new environments are dynamic, data moves, shifts, scale is 5-10X what you used to design for….Those are the break points on the old way of doing backups – yes backups architectures are running on borrowed timeThe new virtualized and consolidated data centers demand a whole new approach – one that can scale and perform and embrace the HW recovery dimensions – with DB and data stores in the multi-TB range – you can’t just copy it back and meet your RTO- snapshots are critical and effectively the only way to get this done quickly and frequently..Scale needs to reach from the small tactical remote site needs and stretch to the upper bounds of the Enterprise class – which imposes a higher set demands to minimize impact on the production tier (ie offloading is critical ). Coupling the rapid response of snapshots (TB collections in minutes) with offload processing – contracts the protection window on your production resources to fraction of what you have been struggling through. Backup windows can be retired as a modernized productionSnaps though can only stack up so far before your costs begin to skyrocket, this is where the backup copy is still a critical part of the solution – but it is not the start, rather it is the middle. A modernized protection strategy needs to span the snaps/ backups / DR / Vault copies seamlessly – indexing and moving the relevant content to each copy instance – employing efficient and smart movement methods such as deduplication to every target – and retaining those data instances under a single lifecycle retention model – aligned with the business demands. With the emerging new economics around cloud storage – a modern data protection strategy must be able to seamlessly reach into the cloud to extend those benefits for effortless retention, reduced costs and direct accessibility. Simpana9 – delivers those benefits from single data protection policy, virtualizing a dynamic and agile set of seamless automatic processes that drive data collection, mgmt and recovery across every tier in this picture. As the data moves, inline indexing assures simplicity in recovery from the entire data store, to individual components such as Virtual Machines or Databases, down to individual files and messages, from any of the indexed instances across the tiers – this is referred to as content-aware protection.Together that drives down Recovery Time to deliver the service levels your business demands while also unlocking that data to ensure it is accessible for broader use – such as end-user retrievals, search, discovery needs.In many cases that is a critical element that folks forget – if your data is wrapped in VMDK formats and 3 years later you need to unwrap it to service a legal action, but the VM infrastructure is so different it can’t read it – that is where you need to ensure you had a smart data management system that indexed it in a content aware basis – so you can peer inside and remove the actual documents, files and messages you need without having to redeploy your old architecture. Ok let’s dig into it.
  • SnapProtect Enable for Virtual Server Agent integrates with the snapshots built into the storage arrays for Rapid Fire Creation of recovery copies of Data Stores containing Virtual Machines. When the SnapProtect job runs, the VSA agentQueisces the VMs using VADPOnce the VMs are quiesced, creates a hardware snapshot of the data store LUN.Each snapshot represents a consistent recovery point at that point in time and can be used to recover VMs.Once the hardware snapshot is completed, VSA adds the snapshot to its list of recovery points.With the hardware snapshots complete, the virtual machines are unquesiced.Since the snapshots take only a few seconds to create, the virtual machines need to be quiesced for only a short time. With this method, you can create multiple recovery copies in a day for the entire virtual environment, and you can create recovery copies for literally hundreds of VMs in few minutes.With the amount of data being generated, it is no longer sufficient to simply recover to last night’s backups. Simply too much data is generated every hour and losing any of that data could be catastrophic. Creating multiple recovery points per day allows businesses to a point closer to the point of failure, rather than only to last night’s backup. This type of flexibility is crucial for the modern data center.Simpana supports a wide variety of storage arrays and does not require scripting on any of these storage systems. All that is needed is to enter the storage system details and credentials of users allowed to create snapshots. Simpana does not require entering details of individual data stores, those are automatically detected from vCenter.Enterprise class storage systems are very reliable and it is extremely rare to loose a storage LUN. However, it does happen from time to time, hence it is advisable to create a secondary copy of the data on snapshots. Simpana also includes the ability to selectively copy the contents of one of the snapshots to a secondary disk or tape target. The VSA mounts the selected snapshot on a proxy ESX server, that has been designated for this role, and leverages VADP against this snapshot copy to copy data to a secondary location. It employs source side deduplication at this time to reduce the amount of data transferred and stored. While the copy is being created, VSA also catalogs individual files to enable granular recovery of files or folders.Since the VM data in the snapshots are already consistent, there is no need to queisce the VMs again. Thus the secondary copy can be created with just a few minutes of impact on the virtual machines themselves. This combined approach is much superior to when using VADP directly on the production data stores, as it requires the VMs to be queisced for a longer period of time.The proxy ESX server can even run the ESXi version. Also this does not need to be in the same high class as the other ESX servers. It simply needs to be configured for fast IO and does not necessarily need more than 4-8 cores.SnapProtect Enabler provides the best of both worlds, it allows the creation of consistent recovery copies of VMs in minutes, that does not disrupt the production VMs, and provides the option to selectively create secondary copies for DR and granular recovery. By providing the same set of data management capabilities as in physical environments, Simpana SnapProtect allows as rapid switch to virtual infrastructure.

    8. 8. Confidential Data Management Challenges Data Growth vs. Backup Windows Rapid data growth stresses backup window – Protect rapidly growing data in a shorter period. Traditional method of shifting everything from front to back falls short. Data at the Edges (Remote & Mobile) Significant amount of data is generated remotely – Consolidate & protect data over WAN in central location. Different recovery and retention needs per site while managing data centrally is challenging. Balance DR / Recovery SLAs vs. Time & Cost Fast restores and rapid DR are critical – Avoid tradeoff between fast restore/DR and cost. Hardware-based replication is expensive and doesn’t offer a persistent copy. Tape solutions are slow and difficult to manage. Ability to Scale Cost Effectively Economically scale solution to keep pace with growth - Once solution capacity is reached, can it be expanded without spending millions of dollars?
