Will Data Lifecycle Management Solutions Fuel Non-Stop Data Backup?

As the number of virtual machines (VMs) growing, daily backup has become more challenging. The backup tool can back up physical servers successfully each day, but it cannot back up all VMs daily, spread across environments of various departments in an organization. The IT team needs faster, more frequent backups to meet recovery point objectives (RPOs). And, the team wants the freedom to conduct ad-hoc backups. The team faces another challenge. VM recovery is less than optimal with the legacy tool, which makes meeting recovery time objectives (RTOs) more difficult.

The legacy monitoring and reporting tool present challenges too. First, the IT team need deeper visibility into the environment. It is difficult for team members to see potential problems with the legacy tool, preventing them from proactively resolving issues and optimizing resources. They want to be alerted to backup and performance issues before applications and users are affected. And, since they strive to reach the highest levels of performance and availability, they need specifics on system utilization. In a nutshell, the legacy monitoring and reporting tool do not provide enough detailed information to effectively manage the backup and virtual infrastructures.

Organizations today need a solution that provides scalability, flexibility and capacity planning capabilities they need as a growing enterprise.

The Data Lifecycle Management Solution

The Data Lifecycle Management Solution(DLM) is fast and scalable, letting you back up the entire virtual environment every day. It is also flexible, letting you perform ad hoc backups as often as you want.

It can back up every VM in your production and R&D environments to onsite storage every day. Because our solutions have built-in deduplication and compression, backups require half the storage than legacy backups, which provides a value advantage for organizations.

With this solution, meeting RTOs is fast and easy. For example, A failed VM from a regular backup, OS files and application items can be recovered in minutes.

It will also save you a lot of time and helps with business continuity. For example: In case you apply a security patch to one of your applications, and the application didn’t work properly. You can recover the application from a backup in minutes and continue with business as usual.

DLM is a full-featured solution that meets each organization’s needs. It offers scalable backup and recovery and complete visibility through monitoring and alerting. Our clients appreciate the value of the solution.

The advanced monitoring, reporting and capacity planning capabilities in the solution help our clients improve the performance and availability of their backup and virtual infrastructures.

It provides deeper monitoring and more detailed reporting than your previous tool, which helps you recognize and fix incidents fast before they become problems and affect users. With DLM it’s easy to see the cause of a bottleneck, and it’s easy to check load balancing among hosts. DLM also helps us with capacity planning. You will be able to assess system utilization and overall performance of each VM, giving you a good indication of how to optimize resources to ensure system health.

The Results

Scalable solution backs up and recovers entire virtual environment to meet RTOs and RPOs

Built for enterprise scalability and engineered to back up and recover thousands of VMs. With fast, reliable recovery, improve RTOs, and with it’s quick, frequent backup and replication, increase the number of recovery points for better RPOs.

Built-in features decrease backup storage consumption by 50%

Provides organizations with deduplication options based on VM size and type of backup target so they can optimize backup size and job performance. Plus, it offers levels of compression to help them find the right balance of storage consumption, job duration, and backup proxy load.

Complete visibility enhances performance and availability of virtual environment

Monitor and manage the resources in its backup and virtual infrastructures. Not only does it enable proactive issue resolution, but it also enables resource optimization. For example, Track storage consumption and analyzes trends for capacity planning.
