Backup Target

Online storage target for large scale backups

Backup Target

Without strong backup and recovery infrastructure, companies are vulnerable to loss of their most valuable assets: their data. Data loss affects businesses directly when assets can no longer be leveraged; or indirectly, via regulatory agency fines and penalties and loss of customer confidence.

Ensuring that data is always available – no matter what disaster occurs – requires a backup target solution that is easy to manage, maintains data integrity without degradation and scales with the inevitable growth of data over time.  Speed matters: petabyte-scale backups to tape can take days to complete. That is, if and when they do complete. Disk-based backup not only accelerates write process, but it makes more aggressive RPO’s (recovery point objectives) and lightning-fast RTO’s (recovery time objectives) for recovery that takes minutes rather than hours or days. 

A good on-line backup target should be integrated with multiple backup software solutions – most importantly, yours – so that the IT team can reap the benefits of using an on-line backup target without having to change backup applications.  Look for a wide choice of file and object interfaces for easy integration and future-proofing.  Using Commvault, HPE StoreOnce, IBM Spectrum Protect, Rubrik, Veeam, Veritas or other backup software with S3 or file-based interface?  No need to change applications: use Scality RING software-defined storage on industry-standard x86 servers to shorten the backup window and make huge improvements in RPO and RTO.
