In-depth Reports Analyzing FalconStor VTL and the Solutions It Enables:
|Best Practices for Optimizing IT: A Model for Data Services |
An optimized IT model is one that embraces advancements in server and storage technologies such as virtualization, data deduplication, continuous data protection, WAN optimization, and thin provisioning to enable a more service-oriented approach to IT. This paper outlines the best practices for implementing an optimized IT model to simplify IT and make it more cost-effective and operationally efficient.
|Demystifying Data Deduplication |
Data deduplication has become a primary requirement for backup implementations. Although many vendors claim to offer the best data deduplication approach, results can vary based on a company’s unique needs. This white paper describes the key considerations when selecting a deduplication solution, helping you separate hype from reality.
|FalconStor VTL Migration Scenarios: Integrating Data Deduplication into Existing Data Protection Environments |
Learn how to migrate to the latest version of FalconStor VTL technology with integrated data deduplication to quickly reap the benefits of a reduced storage footprint. Together, FalconStor and Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) have devised an easy process for integrating deduplication functionality into older VTL environments, with minimal downtime and disruption, and maximum value.
|How Data Deduplication Works |
Data deduplication is a “must-have” for organizations that wish to have low storage costs despite continuous data growth. This paper explains how deduplication technology from FalconStor supports backup and disaster recovery (DR) operations in a manner that exceeds other deduplication technologies.
|Optimizing Oracle RMAN and ASM Environments with FalconStor VTL and Integrated Deduplication |
FalconStor Virtual Tape Library (VTL) with integrated Single Instance Repository (SIR) deduplication technology offers advanced backup and global deduplication capabilities that support Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) and Automatic Storage Management (ASM). Together, these technologies can provide the high availability, data protection, manageability, and cost reduction that IT is searching for in Oracle implementations.
|Using FalconStor VTL as a Backup Target for IBM i |
By introducing FalconStor VTL into an IBM i environment, you can non-disruptively replace tape backup with disk to accelerate backup/recovery and improve operational efficiency. This technical white paper explains how to configure FalconStor VTL with IBM i to leverage capabilities such as native backup integration, IPL bare-metal recovery, and direct tape support with encryption to maximize return on your IBM i investments.
