The addition of data deduplication to backup software has transformed the industry’s approach to data protection. The technology is no longer the exclusive domain of high-end deduplication appliances from companies like DataDomain (an EMC company). The addition of deduplication to Symantec Backup Exec 2010 makes backup deduplication technology available to IT shops of all sizes.
But in order to optimize data reduction, backup data has to be compressed as it is being deduplicated. And hardware compression is the only technology that can perform this task without impacting backup and restore performance or server and client resources.
Backup deduplication ratios are multiplied when adding BridgeSTOR VS-ADR compression
The hardware-accelerated compression used in BridgeSTOR is familiar to backup managers because it employs the same dedicated chip-based technique used to reduce data and improve the throughput of tape drives. For added data integrity, the dedicated compression processor decompresses data immediately after compression to verify that the compression operation was successful. It stores the CRC generated during the compress/decompress operation with the data to verify the decompression operation when data is read during a recovery operation.
BridgeSTOR for Symantec Backup Exec 2010 Deduplication Appliances combine HP server technology with Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Symantec Backup Exec 2010 with deduplication and hardware-accelerated data compression for RAID storage. BridgeSTOR for Symantec Backup Exec 2010 Appliances eliminate the task of configuring an optimized backup infrastructure that can be a daunting task for even the most experienced backup, server and storage administrators.
Targeting high performance data protection environments, BridgeSTOR recognizes the elevated priority set on protecting data within already stringent backup and restore windows by providing line-rate throughput performance.
Hardware-Accelerated Encryption data-at-rest 256-bit key AES-CBC encryption is enabled as an option for new volumes as they are created. When enabled, all data stored is secured at the block level and no further management is required from the system or storage administrator, adding heightened security with minimal required supervision. Encryption operations are automated and take place as data is written to and read from the disk, completely transparent to the end user yet fully protected from an attempted security breach.
Thin provisioning enables storage managers to allocate storage volumes of any size to servers without the need to physically install the storage until needed, enabling highly cost-effective and on-demand capacity acquisitions. Thin provisioning reduces the near- and long-term storage costs while minimizing administration tasks and eliminating downtime costs by remaining non-disruptive to the operating system, file system, applications and end users.
