The 5 Keys to Virtual Backup Excellence

  1. 1. The5 Keys toVirtual Backup Excellence
  2. 2. The Challenges51 Percent of IT pros say virtualized server backups do not meet or only partially meet business goals for restores and recovery87 Percent of CIOs say recovery times from large-scale disaster are growing with the number of business-critical servers in the enterprise$43 million Estimate cost to Toronto Dominion Bank for losing two backup tapes in 2012 Sources: 2012 CIO Pulse Backup & Recovery Survey: IDG 2011 Veeam Virtualization Data Protection Report
  3. 3. Agenda Overcoming barriers to virtualization ● Backup and restoration concerns among top barriers to virtualization penetration ● More VMware administrators choosing disk backup systems over tape 5 Keys to Virtual Backup Excellence ExaGrid overview ● Disk-based backup with deduplication Veeam Backup & Replication ● Fully leverage your virtualized environment Integrated solution ● Use Veeam Backup & Replication with ExaGrid’s disk backup for optimal results Customer case studies
  4. 4. Challenges of Server Virtualization  Monitor, manage backups on growing # of VMs  Issues when managing multiple guest OS’s  Lack ability to see down to individual VMs  Hassles, limitations of tape backup These challenges are driving your customers’ need for better tools to reliably and easily back up and restore virtual machines

  41. 41. Case Study – Hoffman Construction Before AfterEnvironment Environment Began move to virtualization with five VMware • ExaGrid appliance with Veeam Backup and ESX hosts and 60 virtual machines (VMs) Recovery VM snapshots, backed up to tape, stored on SANBackup Window Backup Window Took at least six hours to recover one Microsoft • Fast, reliable and verifiable VM backups SQL Server database. • Backups completed in less than half the time • Restores VM from backup in minutes to minimize downtime and disruption. Results • Restored 100 percent of VMs almost instantly with no user disruption after a major SAN crash and loss of all data stored on VMs “The integration of Veeam Backup & Replication and ExaGrid’s landing zone architecture is a winning combination for flexibility and scalability.” Kelly Bott, Field Technician/Technical Specialist
