Backup and Archiving
Backup and archiving are two different tasks, but should be combined. While backup secures data and is used for a restore of files, folders or systems after data loss, archiving is used for migrate data for long term storage or regulatory compliance requirements. In addition, archiving obsolete files frees up disk space, speed up applications and reduce backup windows and storage capacity.
Best practice for backup and data protection is to store at least one copy on a removable media to keep it off-site for disaster protection. Removable media is also ideal for archiving tasks as it reduces operational expenses significantly.
Our SnapScale and SnapSever familyof NAS products are ideal to perform the first part of our recommended “Backup To Disk To removable Media” strategy. If utilizing the Snap NAS products, data can be easily replicated with built-in synchronization utilities for backup to disk, even if the deployed backup software does not support multi-target backups. Data is replicated immediately after creation to ensure high availability. Backup to a removable devices like RDX or tape completes full disaster protection.
RDX® QuikStor™, our removable disk system, connects via USB 3.0 and appears as another hard drive and can be easily integrated into all popular backup and archiving applications.
Tandberg Data’s tape and tape-automation products are best for server and big data environments. They are scalable and grow with performance and capacity needs. All tape and tape automation products can be easily integrated via SAS, Fibre Channel or Thunderbolt (using a Fibre Channel to Thunderbolt bridge).
