IT Storage Challenges Have Not Slowed


Current IT Storage Challenges

Uncontrollable data growth

On average companies are doubling their data every two


Approximately 20% is structured data and typically

“Business Critical”

– database backups

Approximately 80% is unstructured data – file systems


Budget restrictions

Whether decreasing, flat, or increasing

budgets are not

keeping pace


Current IT Storage Challenges

Rigorous Service Level Agreements (SLAs) − Data

growth, economic pressures, and competitiveness in

the global market are causing:

Crushing backup windows

Driving shorter Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and

aggressive Recovery Point Objectives (RPO)

24x7x365 access to data

Greater regulation

Legal, compliance, and regulatory issues are forcing


Why is Data Protection So Important?

Top Data Protection Issues for Companies of All Sizes

Safeguard corporate information

Maintain efficient business operations

Conformance with SLAs and regulations

Recovery time and recovery point focused

Drive out costs - efficiency

Shrink the backup window

Data Deduplication Changing Backup

Data Deduplication Benefits


• Optimized capacity

• Store more data for a longer period of time

• Reduced management • Reduced bandwidth requirements • Centralized data protection and management

• Mitigate security risk of lost media


Deduplication for Backup − Choices

Clients Based Deduplication

Source based deduplication

Backup Software with Deduplication

Target based deduplication Backup Server

Backup Server

Deduplication Appliance

Device based deduplication

Hybrid Based Software Deduplication


Backup Software Deduplication Benefits

Reduce Costs

Leverage current backup software

“Inexpensive” and high performance Sun servers Shrink backup window by up to 90% (client dedupe)


Deduplication at the client, backup server, neither, or both

Deduplicate by data type – eliminates “all or nothing” approach

Reduce Risk

No hardware vendor lock-in

Regular disk and tape storage – taking advantage of compression and encryption


Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN)

Simplified Logical And Physical Recovery


Intrinsic knowledge of database file formats and recovery procedures

Fast Recovery Area

Fast incremental backups

Backs up only changed blocks

Image copy backup rolled forward with incremental backup

No need to do full backups

The Changing Role of Tape in Open Systems Backup

Paraphrasing Mark Twain…

“The reports of Tape’s death have been

greatly exaggerated.”

Tape is the only cost effective, long-term storage


Focus on weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly full backups

Reliability – 15 to 30 year shelf life

Drive and media generational compatibility

Secured encrypted data – Lost tape? Who cares.


The Changing Role of Tape in Open Systems Backup

High speed, linear scalable performance

Economical “green” storage – ultimate in data at rest


Data growth make disk too costly and too risky – even

with deduplication

Tape is 100,000 time more reliable then disk (bit error rate of



vs. 10



RAID only makes this worse – more components to fail

Tape provides the maximum in


Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN)

Backup To The Fast Recovery Area

Simplifies all recovery processes

That’s why you backup in the first place

Logical and physical

Shrink the backup window

Incremental backups Changed blocks only
