  • In 1986, RecoveryVault’s founder set out to solve a problem - help businesses recover lost information. Having suffered his own catastrophic information loss, he was committed to five design principles:• As little human involvement as possible• Offsite storage of the backed up information• Centralization of the backup of all the business’ information• Protect the computing environment• Quick, reliable recoverySince 1986 RecoveryVault has been anticipating the information recovery management needs of enterprises of all sizes. With customers as small as 1 TB to those with multiple PBs RecoveryVault scales to meet the demands of its users. RecoveryVault’s Go-to-Market strategy delivers enterprises the most robust feature set available combined with the services and support expertise of a global network of channel partners. More importantly, RecoveryVault’s proven 23 years of thought and technology leadership ensures enterprises are uniquely positioned to optimize technology innovation without putting their most strategic asset - information - at risk.
  • Improve backup & recovery performanceDramatically reduce backup windowsFast, granular recovery capabilitiesBackup Lifecycle ManagementAs value of data declines, so does the cost of protecting it
  • Achieve backup & recovery success rates > 90% Monitor daily/weekly & monthly backup activity reports Define & set event filters based on SLA/OLA priority Detect & fix errors even before they become harmful
  • Backup Multi-Terabyte databasesEasily backup desktops & laptopsRecover only what you want:Granular recoveryProtect leading virtualization platforms Such as VMware, Citrix, Microsoft and Parallels.
  • Protect laptops, remote sites and data centers N+1 grid architectureScalability, availability, redundancy and replicationData secured and encrypted from cradle to graveFIPS CertifiedEliminate physical tape transport!

Continuous InnovationAlways use the most mature platforms to protect your mission critical dataSome RecoveryVault firsts: 1993: De-duplication 1995: Service Orientated Architecture 1995: Encryption 2006: Agentless Continuous Data Protection 2006: Backup Lifecycle Management 2006: VMware Backup Continuous Data Protection 2007: 64-bit Backup Continuous Data Protection 2009: FIPS 140-2 CertificationSummary: 23 Years of innovation ! 6
    7. 7. Strategy #2 When it comes to datarecovery, compromise is not an option ! 7
    8. 8. 5 Simple QuestionsIT has become more critical to the continuation of business critical functions. How much revenue will you lose 1 if your Companys data is lost? 2 How will your company’s image look? Of companies that had a major loss of business data: 3 What will be the cost to your Company? • 43% never reopen • 51% close within two years 4 • Only 6% will survive long-term. How will you productivity be impacted? 5 Will you be able to recover? 8
    9. 9. Accountability is everythingWhen it comes to data recoverability, compromise is not an option!Meet your Service LevelAgreements Improve backup & recovery performance Fast, granular recovery capabilities Backup Lifecycle Management 9
    10. 10. Accountability is everythingWhen it comes to data recoverability, compromise is not an option!Improve your backup operations: Achieve backup & recovery success rates > 90% Monitor daily/weekly & monthly backup activity reports Detect & fix errors even before they become harmful 10
    11. 11. Accountability is everythingWhen it comes to data recoverability, compromise is not an option!Address Key Problems Backup Multi-Terabyte databases Recover only what you want Protect leading virtualization platforms 11
    12. 12. Accountability is everythingWhen it comes to data recoverability, compromise is not an option!Reduce Risk Protect laptops, remote sites and data centres N+1 grid architecture Data secured and encrypted from cradle to grave 12
    13. 13. Strategy #3Embrace Virtualisation 13
    14. 14. Virtual Server ChallengesTraditional agent-based backup and recovery force a series of unattractive choicesUnattractive Choices: Agent based technologies pollute environments Agents, by their nature, lack cohesion The need to physically install and manage agents A single agent adds as much as 16% server 14
    15. 15. Virtual Server ProtectionTraditional agent-based backup and recovery force a series of unattractive choicesRecoveryVault simplifies recoveryof virtual servers by: Discovering each new guest virtual server Centralizing backup configuration and management Controlling software licensing costs Providing backup options specific to VMWare, Xen & HyperV 15
    16. 16. Virtual Server Auto-DiscoveryTraditional agent-based backup and recovery force a series of unattractive choicesRecoveryVault addresses the newcorporate challenges around thediscovery and configuration: Automatically discover a new guest virtual server on a host servers Automatically to track the movement of the guest virtual server from one host server to another Guest virtual servers continue to receive uninterrupted data protection regardless of on which host server they reside 16
    17. 17. Strategy #4Don’t trust your users 17
    18. 18. Laptops Need ProtectionUsers still store critical data on their PCs and laptopsIf data is not on the server- it is never backed up. Managing a remote backup of every desktop or laptop machine, every day, manually is virtually impossible Traditional tape backup requires an ever increasing investment in time, training, technology and supplies Some so-called remote backup solutions exist, but they’re complex, costly, inefficient and bandwidth intensive 18
    19. 19. Laptops Need ProtectionUsers still store critical data on their PCs and laptopsIndustry research has shown thatusers cannot be relied upon toback up their data consistently Companies are exposed to considerable risk from irreparable data loss or lengthy recoveries Remote backup applications for laptop users often require continuous maintenance and support - such as administering backup jobs and restoring lost files 19
    20. 20. Laptops Need ProtectionRecoveryVault is the Solution!Recovery Vault provides remotebackup efficiencies unavailablewith traditional backuparchitecture by allowing you to: Manage your desktops and laptops using agent-less remote backup technology Backup to local or remote repositories Users can restore deleted files themselves or administrators can restore data from a central location 20
    21. 21. 3 Types of Storage The key to reducing costs 21
    22. 22. 3 Types of StorageThe Key to cost effective backup and recoveryLocal Only Storage: R8.00 Per GB Native Local Only Disk to Disk backup at LAN speed Data remains on Customer Premises Used for data that is not mission critical where offsite storage is not required Combination of Encrypted NAS &Backup Agentless LAN backup to encrypted on-premise vault LAN 22
    23. 23. 3 Types of StorageThe Key to cost effective backup and recoveryData Centre (DS Storage): R20.00 Per GB Native DS Disk to Disk backup with Datacentre Replica Data remains on Customer Premises AND is also replicated to 2 Off-site Datacentres Used for data that is mission critical where offsite storage is required Agentless LAN backup with encrypted Local Cache and remote replicas LAN WWW 23
    24. 24. 3 Types of StorageThe Key to cost effective backup and recoveryBackup Lifecycle Manager (BLM Storage): R6.00 Per GB Native BLM Long Term Data Centre Storage Data is NOT stored on Customer Premises AND is moved to 2 Off-site Datacentres Used for data that is required for regulatory compliance. Agentless LAN backup with encrypted Local Index and remote replicas LAN WWW 24
