The challenge: Protecting growing data volumes in less time
Historically, enterprise data backup has been a time-consuming, expensive and sometimes unreliable process. Today, while the volume of data generated in the average organisation is increasing, the time available for backup is decreasing. Building an effective data protection system also requires a large investment in servers, networks, tape technology and people-plus the recurring cost of tape media. Backup and restore operations can interrupt access to important information, leading to lost productivity and revenue.
The solution: Automated data backup with IBM System Storage N series with SnapVault capabilities.
IBM System Storage N series with SnapVault® can help you efficiently backup and restore critical data. By supporting the frequent backup of data stored on IBM System Storage N series systems or Network Appliance™ NearStore® systems, SnapVault provides a centralised, disk-based backup solution for multiple IBM System Storage N series systems. Storing backup data in multiple Snapshot copies on the SnapVault secondary storage system can let enterprises keep multiple backups made over time online for faster restoration. SnapVault also gives users the power to choose which data gets backed up, the frequency of backup, and how long the backup copies are retained.
