BACKUP ....A DIFFERENT WAY.....
The security of business-critical information is an existential issue for all companies, but often too little importance is attributed to it.
The precautions taken to achieve the highest possible data security vary greatly from company to company, because the requirements can also vary.
However, whether creating the kind of backup that Jim is making here at the moment is purposeful must at least be questioned.
We from Q5 are glad to help you create backup concepts that correspond exactly to your needs and cover your requirements perfectly.
Protection of Business-Critical Information
IT departments in almost all companies have been concerned with the phenomenon of too short backup windows for some time. Despite backup-to-disk, incremental backups and other technologies that are intended to make backups faster, backup managers will increasingly have to deal with this phenomenon.
As long as data growth continues unbraked without automated mechanisms moving these mountains of data from primary storage systems to other storage platforms, backup windows will increasingly become a problem. However, if the inactive and old data is moved to a storage platform so that a backup for these data is no longer necessary, backup times are reduced dramatically and then also fit easily into the available backup windows.
Databases frequently contain critical data that must be protected and continuously available. If databases run on our hybrid arrays, you benefit from the fault tolerance, high availability and end-to-end data integrity of our SDS solution. In storage systems for archiving, we use an adapted RAID level to provide the perfect platform for managing your mission-critical data.
Snapshots the base for backup and restore
Our storage systems enable an unlimited number of snapshots of volumes and file systems. Snapshots can be created either manually or by schedule. You can also configure the number of snapshots to be maintained. Snapshots do not require separate storage areas and are created immediately and very memory-efficiently, because only the differences from the active data stock occupy storage space. They can serve as a basis for backups, or the state of the snapshot can be restored in the case of user errors/faulty configurations.
The contents of snapshots and the changes to the last snapshot can be transferred to a remote storage system using a schedule. This feature is called DR replication and enables you to maintain replicas of your original data reproach at a second site. In case of failure of the primary data center, you can “activate” the secondary data center and clients can access the data stock almost seamlessly.
