Server Virtualization, Backup and Disaster Recovery – Choosing the Right Approach for you

  1. 1. Server Virtualization, Backup and Disaster Recovery –Choosing the Right Approach for youIPEXPO - October 2011David BlackmanGeneral Manager,North Europe and Middle East & Africa
  2. 2. Agenda01 Acronis Company Overview02 Global DR Index - Market Challenges & Opportunities03 Acronis Backup and Recovery 11 & Virtual Edition Solution Overviews04 vmProtect Solution Overview05 Acronis Virtualization Webinars06 Summary 2
  3. 3. Acronis Company Overview Global Provider of Disaster Recovery & Data Protection Software Solutions to SMBs, Enterprises and Consumers• Primary Market: Backup and Disaster Recovery software for SMBs, enterprises and consumers• More than 175,000 business customers across a broad range of industries• More than 2.5 million licenses sold in 90 countries > Products localized in up to 14 languages• Protecting over 100,000 virtual servers worldwide• Channel-driven model with more than 20,000 partners• Founded in 2002, with 18 offices worldwide > ~700 employees with more than 260 in R&D Acronis Headquarters, USA.• Corporate headquarters in Woburn, MA. 3
  4. 4. The Acronis Global DR Index An Annual Worldwide Ranking of International Confidence in Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) Readiness, Capabilities and Practices 4
  5. 5. How was the Index Created? Acronis Global DR Index 2.5Aggregated responses to 11 2questions on Backup & DRconfidence in readiness, 1.5capabilities and practices 1 0.5(3000 IT Managers in 13 0countries) United Kingdom (UK) Hong Kong (HK) Italy (IT) Australia (AU) Switzerland (SW) Netherlands (NL) Sweden (SE) Singapore (SG) Germany (DE) France (FR) US Japan (JP) Norway (NO) -0.5 -1• Ability and willingness to adopt newtechnology -1.5 -0.5 0 5• Confidence in procedures and policies Low confidence Neutral Very confident• Level of executive support• Ability to recover rapidly after downtime Confidence in DR Level of response to a statement Grading Strongly agree 5 Agree 2.5 Neutral 0 Disagree -2.5 Strongly disagree 5 5
  6. 6. Key Business Challenges Costs of managing data are increasing drastically for all companies • Return on investment being challenged – Average business spends 10% of their IT budget on backup and DR* – but often not satisfied with ability to protect and recover data • The lights are always on – Mission critical machines need to be available around the clock • Regulatory compliance and e-discovery demands – Compliance requirements force organizations to respond more quickly to retrieve archived data, whether they are individual email or documents, at short notice*Acronis Global Disaster Recovery Index, October 2010, 3000 IT managers surveyed globally 6
  7. 7. Key Technology Challenges IT environments are more complex • Amount of digital data is sky rocketing – Storage requirements are increasing, driven by email, ERP, document management and imaging • This data needs to be spread across a hybrid world to reduce risk – For ultimate protection backups needs to be spread across physical, virtual and cloud targets, as well as applications, which is complicated and drives up costs • Using separate solutions drives up costs – Software complexity is costing business over 10% of their profits, equivalent to $237 billion for the Forbes top 200 firms*. Running separate solutions for disaster recovery and data protection drives up maintenance, support and licensing costs*Warwick Business School, March 2011 7
  8. 8. Virtualization ChallengesVirtualization poses new complexities:Technology complexity• Solutions for multiple enterprise scenarios and interfaces may overwhelm user• Product complexity for enterprise does not support small business goals• Learning curve too longMigration to virtual environment takes too long • Migrations from P2V and V2V are not intuitive • Generic backup & recovery solutions do not optimize APIs in VMware® vSphereTMDrain on IT resources • Limited IT staff • Constrained budget for additional hardware and software licenses • IT may not be the function needing to recover files/systemsPerformance impacted by inefficient backup options 8
  9. 9. Challenges in a Hybrid World 74% 74% 68% 67% 69% Moving data between P,V,C 50% Complexity across 42% multiple platforms 29% Cost of disparate 24% solutions US UK Germany • Organizations are using two to three different applications for disaster recovery and data protection • Three-quarters (76%) of organizations state that the most beneficial thing that could improve their backup and DR strategy would be a single solution for physical, virtual and cloudAcronis Global Disaster Recovery Index, October 2010, 3000 IT managers surveyed globally; top 3 options out of 10 answers 9
  10. 10. Technology Adoption is Rapidly Increasing • Fast adoption of virtualization in SMBs is key trend for 2011 – Adoption will increase by 50% this year. IT environments which are virtualized will rise from 22% to 33%*. However, the majority of companies do not back up their virtual servers as often as their physical • The cloud is not just a buzz word – Cloud adoption will increase by 87% from 16% of IT environments in the SMB space to 30%* • However, some aspect will always stay physical – IT managers will always need to keep some element of their disaster recovery and data protection in a physical environment*Acronis Global Disaster Recovery Index, October 2010, 3000 IT managers surveyed globally 10

  13. 13. Adoption of Virtualization Which hypervisor does your businessHypervisor Choice use? • More virtual servers will be 2% 6% VMware vSphere deployed in 2011 than during (paid) 9% 31% VMware ESXi (free) 2001 – 2010 (18 million) • 67% of Acronis customers are Microsoft Hyper-V running virtual servers on one Citrix XEN Server hypervisor 22% RedHat KVM • VMware holds 85% of the server 29% Other virtualization market • Many customers not backing up virtual servers as often as physical ones1.

  14. 14. Time for Change? What would you do if provided the opportunity to completely re-architect your backup processes from scratch, by usage of server virtualization technology ? Yes, we are currently using server virtualization (N=161) We have not yet deployed server virtualization but we plan to do so (N=76) 60% 54% 53% 50% 40% 40% 36% 30% 20% 12% 10% 6% 0% Use the same backup Use a new backup Use a third-party online backup solution/vendor solution/vendor service instead of an in-house solutionSource: ESG Research Report, Data Protection Trends (Apr 2010) 14
