The growth in unstructured data stresses traditional backup and restore operations. Numerous, disparate systems with large numbers of files and duplicate copies of data increase backup and restore times and hurt the performance and availability of production systems. Cost and complexity rise, with more backup instances to buy and manage, more care and handling of an increasing numbers of tapes, and more management of offsite storage. In addition, you may need to support analytics, a compliance audit, or legal action that needs information that is stored offsite. By tiering data to an archive, you can reduce total backup volume by at least 30%. By extending that core archive to the edges of your business, your potential gains are worth investigating. View this webcast to learn how to: Lower capital expenses (hardware, software, licensing, and so on). Control maintenance costs. Simplify management complexity. Reduce backup volume, time cost, and time and administrative effort.

Reduce Costs and Complexity with Backup-Free Storage Reduce Costs and Complexity with Backup-Free Storage Presentation Transcript

  • REDUCE COSTS AND COMPLEXITY WITH BACKUP-FREE STORAGE NICK JARVIS, DIRECTOR, FILE, CONTENT AND CLOUD SOLUTIONS VERTICALS – AMERICAS
  • The growth in unstructured data stresses traditional backup and restore operations. Numerous, disparate systems with large numbers of files and duplicate copies of data increase backup and restore times and hurt the performance and availability of production systems. Cost and complexity rise, with more backup instances to buy and manage, more care and handling of an increasing numbers of tapes, and more management of offsite storage. In addition, you may need to support analytics, a compliance audit, or legal action that needs information that is stored offsite. By tiering data to an archive, you can reduce total backup volume by at least 30%. By extending that core archive to the edges of your business, your potential gains are worth investigating. Attend this webcast to learn how to:  Lower capital expenses (hardware, software, licensing, and so on).  Control maintenance costs.  Simplify management complexity.  Reduce backup volume, time, cost, and administrative effort. REDUCE COSTS AND COMPLEXITY WITH BACKUP-FREE STORAGE WEBTECH EDUCATIONAL SERIES
  • CUSTOMER CHALLENGES Reduce the cost of storing data? Reduce the cost of protecting data? Manage distributed IT more effectively? Mitigate data risk? Gain IT agility? How do I Do more with less? Archive first Back up less Consolidate more
  • TYING IT ALL TOGETHER EDGE STORAGE ALTERNATE DATA CENTER REMOTE OFFICE APPLICATION APPLICATION APPLICATION HDDS SEARCH ACROSS THE POWER OF THE PORTFOLIO Reduce the cost of storing data Reduce the cost of protecting data Do more with less Archive first Back up less Consolidate more Reduce overall storage costs by reducing the load on primary storage by at least 40% Reduce licensing and management cost, complexity and backup by up to 75% Streamline backup and restore operations by 50-60% Improve reliability with >24x improvement in RPO, >30x improvement in RTO Eliminate silos, prevent sprawl, reduce complexity by 50% or moreSimplify management, improve data protection and reduce riskIdentify data at risk, ensure appropriate data access, simplify complianceReduce or eliminate CAPEX, simplify management, offload data from primary storage CLOUD STORAGE MOBILE WORKFORCE HUS FILE MODULE
  • VIETNAM WAR – ROBERT S MCNAMARA, DEFENSE SECRETARY  The environment ‒ Ho Chi Minh Trail ‒ IBM 360/65 computers ‒ Sensors ‒ $1 Billion a year on the program  Quantitative vs. Subjective Analysis ‒ Do we really archive and analyze enough data? ‒ Is Google approach right when they say “organize the worlds information and make it universally accessible and useful”. ‒ Subjective analysis is key  Why Hitachi? ‒ Right archive portal for all data ‒ Extended Metadata to provide subjective analysis from many quarters DATA ARCHIVE AND ANALYSIS EXAMPLE
  • BACKUP BUSINESS CHALLENGES  Unstructured data growth and management ‒ 75% to 90% of data is unstructured ‒ 50% of unstructured data is inactive after 6 months ‒ Requires unique capabilities for archive management  Costs to maintain unstructured data ‒ Maintaining backups ‒ Recovery ‒ Space ‒ Power and cooling ‒ Resistance to change − “we’ll be fine”  Meeting SLA’s ‒ RPO and RTO recovery ‒ Backup Windows  Control of data ‒ Remote sites ‒ Public clouds (Dropbox)
  • Currently accessed Have not accessed for > 1 year FACT # 2: ABOUT 65% OF FILES WILL NEVER BE ACCESSED AGAIN
  • Ingest Applications  Recovery concerns: Missing RTO and RPO’s  Proliferation of Media Backup Servers and client licenses  Backup Windows  Backing up inactive data  Backup costs  Control of data at remote sites  Management at remote sites  Bloated Systems reducing application performance Email Server Document Management General Accounting Web Applications Optical Jukebox Tape Library NAS RAID Array SMTP CIFS NFS HTTP BACKUP OPERATIONAL CHALLENGES: BREAKING UP LEGACY SILOS
  • ARCHIVE FIRST BACKUP LESS  Migrating static content to the EA can significantly reduce backup workload ‒ File servers typically employ weekly full backup strategy ‒ Archiving reduces size of weekly full copies ‒ Archiving negates the need to retain monthly, quarterly, etc.. copies ‒ Less data to backup and less data to recover makes it easier to hit SLA targets WHY ARCHIVE IS ARCHIVE AND BACKUP IS BACKUP
  • REAL COST OF BACKUP - CALCULATOR  Tape media cost (8-10 copies of data on tapes)  Tape library cost  Backup software cost  Manpower cost  Cost of moving tapes offsite  Support and Maintenance cost of tape library & backup software Backup just looks cheap but it is an expensive process Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6 Year 7 No Archive $1,258 $1,571 $1,923 $2,357 $2,898 $3,510 $4,241 With Archive $584,0 $701,0 $841,0 $1,009 $1,210 $1,452 $1,742 $0 $500,000 $1,000,000 $1,500,000 $2,000,000 $2,500,000 $3,000,000 $3,500,000 $4,000,000 $4,500,000 TotalInvestment Total Cost of Ownership
