Data Protection and Recovery
Efficiently protect and recover data to ensure availability

Data Protection and Recovery

Overview:

Downtime poses a threat to business continuity for companies of all sizes. Each hour of downtime can cost millions of dollars and prolonged downtime can even lead to end of business. Given time and effort, normal business operations can be restored, but a damaged reputation may never be recovered.

To ensure the highest data availability while streamlining backup and recovery tasks, Infortrend embeds advanced snapshot and replication capabilities in its storage systems. Snapshot functions are tailored to provide instantaneous point-in-time copies of data without disrupting online applications. With copy-on-write design, snapshots protect production data from accidental modifications, deletions and corruptions with minimal capacity requirements and performance overhead. By accessing a snapshot copy at the desired recovery point, users can immediately restore system availability from data disruption.

Replication functions (volume copy/mirror and remote replication) further protect data from source volume failure and disasters. With replication functions, users can copy data within a single storage system or between systems in IP or FC SANs at different sites. When source data fails due to system malfunction or disasters, the disk-based remote copy can be leveraged to restart service in minutes. To further ensure the integrity of the remote data, Infortrend allows users to protect the remote copy with snapshot technology. Granular snapshot images can help restore the corrupt remote copy in seconds when the copy is required to resume business service.
