  • Do you have an email system?* MS Exchange / SQL/ etc otherDo you currently use a tape-based backup system?* What is the cost? *Factors - time- effort - media - transport - media failure - mean time to recovery - call desk?* Does your current solution cover desktops and laptops?How long does it take to back up each night?* Do you ever run out of time? I.e. Backups still running after 08.00 Monday morning?Do you have multiple sites or a mobile/home based workforce?* Is bandwidth, control, policy compliance, time to recover end user files, out of hours access/recovery ever an issue?
  • * Increasing amount of data requires larger backup windows* CostCost of ownership, off-site, number of tapes escalating* Remote sites remain problematic* Manual procedures introduce errors* Inefficient use of IT resource time* Recovery from tape slow – especially for single file recoveries which amount to 95% of requests
  • Unplanned Data Growth: Unplanned for data growth can cause a number of issues which could include backup failures and offsite mirroring falling behind.Larger amounts of data causes larger daily changes that requires more bandwidth.Monthly rollups can be archived to tape giving long term data archivingBandwidth: The total daily change amount to between 0.25% and 2% of total data selection.The backup or mirroring line should be able to transport the daily changes within a 12 hour period.Network environmentChanges in the network environment can cause failure or slow response.
  • * Networked disk-to-disk data backup* Focus on controlled backup of distributed data across multiple operating systems* Specifically addresses problem areas of Backup and DR of distributed data:- Automate backup process- Remove reliance on tape Shortens backup window Reduces recovery times Centralise control and monitoring for all devices (Servers & PC’s)- Increasedata security levels- Enforce company backup policy, increase corporate control over distributed data * Self-service recovery for end users
