Simple steps to protecting your IT infrastructure with VMware.
1. Simplify backup and recovery
Backup and recovery are fundamental parts of every IT process and critical components in any business continuity plan. Without the right solution, an IT failure could mean hours or even days to rebuild and recover. In some cases, data could be lost forever. All of this translates to downtime that impacts project schedules, revenue and even company reputation.
Traditional solutions, like writing data to tape, are expensive, slow and complex to restore. By contrast, VMware solutions provide fast backup to disk and dependable recovery. These advanced technologies ensure your backups can handle massive growth in data volumes and keep costs down. In addition, VMware backup solutions offer application-specific agents that move only changed blocks to help protect certain business-critical applications.
VMware vSphere Data Protection and vSphere Data Protection Advanced
VMware vSphere® Data Protection™ is a backup and recovery solution integrated with VMware vSphere® and powered by EMC® Avamar. Its proven technology simplifies management with backup and recovery run from the same vSphere console as the entire virtual infrastructure. Requirements for backup storage are drastically reduced through industry-leading de-duplication. Backup and recovery times are shortened using changed block tracking, which only sends altered data to virtual appliances.
Combined with application awareness using specific agents for Microsoft Exchange and SQL, VMware provides consistent and easy-to-use backup and recovery across your virtualized environment.
