Backup Optimization Benefits
Increase Backup Speeds as much as 800% with Automated Serverless Backup
Data protection has gained importance as more businesses depend on digital information to improve operational efficiency. For many years, tape backup was the only data protection and recovery option, and backup servers, tape drives, and tape libraries became part of every IT infrastructure. But as data volumes have grown, the limitations of tape have created significant challenges for IT. Organizations cannot afford the time required to complete tape backups — nor can they afford to hinder the performance of business applications, lose data, or suffer lengthy recovery times.
Innovative FalconStor solutions can help you overcome the obstacles of tape and optimize backup in a number of ways:
- Consolidate backup operations to reduce management costs
- Implement disk-based backup, recovery, and restore to reduce recovery time and cost
- Automate serverless backup and achieve up to 800% faster backup
- Eliminate the backup window and enable zero-impact backup
- Reduce storage infrastructure costs and realize significant cost savings
- Maximize storage capacity by eliminating duplicate data
FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library (VTL) with deduplication is designed to enhance tape backup reliability, accelerate backup operations, and streamline tape management. Seamless integration into any backup environment allows for a smooth transition to disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) backup with no major changes to the IT infrastructure or backup policies. This non-disruptive deployment model allows you to make the most of your current environment and processes while scaling your backup operations, improving data protection and recovery, and reducing costs.
FalconStor® File-interface Deduplication System (FDS) offers an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-manage capacity-optimized storage (COS) repository. FalconStor FDS helps you minimize online storage capacity requirements for backup and archiving applications. Capacity requirements for disk-to-disk (D2D) backup applications can be reduced by as much as 20 times or more by eliminating data redundancies resulting from backup operations. With FalconStor FDS, you can retain more data online, longer, for quicker data restores.
FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) integrates with backup servers to enable zero-impact backup and automate high-speed SAN-based backup operations. This new approach to data protection and management offloads all backup operations from application servers, enabling backup to take place anytime — even during business hours. Furthermore, FalconStor CDP provides a persistent image of the latest data changes for immediate recovery. This allows you to meet the most stringent Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO). Application data and entire systems can be recovered in minutes, to the last state before corruption or a data loss occurred.
