Data is the backbone of every organization. No matter the business, industry, or size, reliable data access is essential to operations. Should a "worst-case scenario" occur, being prepared with an appropriate disaster recovery strategy is essential. Given the potential high cost associated with data loss, reliable data protection is no longer an option; rather, it is an obligation.
Data deduplication technology represents one of the most significant storage enhancements in recent years, promising to reshape future data protection and disaster recovery solutions. Data deduplication offers the ability to store more on a given amount of storage and replicate data using lower bandwidth links at a significantly reduced cost.
There are many options for backup and data recovery of the IBM iSeries, but not all solutions are right for every business. The highest-priced solutions offer guaranteed business continuity, yet the complexity involved may be too costly for many businesses. The least expensive solutions satisfy due diligence, but put businesses at risk for downtime.
In these days of rampant data growth, a technology that can increase the effective capacity of a disk-based backup system by a ratio of up to 50:1 is big news. Data deduplication allows you to store up to 50 times more backup data into the same disk footprint - giving you a better chance of restoring your users' lost data from exactly the point they need it.
As networks, security threats, and other requirements increase in complexity, monitoring of enterprise infrastructures has become a difficult yet crucial exercise. Monitoring Optimization, a new solution for making sense of the chaos, has emerged as an ideal solution for maximizing network coverage and maintaining optimal utilization of hardware monitoring tools.
Planning for recovery is a requirement in businesses of all sizes. In implementing an operational plan that ensures that both data and applications can be recovered, IT personnel are generally confronted with several challenges.
This guide provides a comprehensive look at a complete data protection and recovery solution, with valuable information to help you choose the solution that best fits your business requirements and budget, and get the assurance you need - knowing your assets are protected.
This white paper will provide a review of the core causes and costs of both planned and unplanned downtime and will then provide a detailed discussion of current options for High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions, including System i (iSeries) high availability solutions.
Downtime and data loss pose intolerable risks to every business today. From IT departments to the Board Room, managers have seen the importance of business uptime and data protection to continued success, productivity and profitability.
Application vulnerabilities and risks must be weighed to identify resources, performance requirements and service level objectives to ensure business continuity. Using real-world case studies, this white paper examines Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) best practices for disaster preparedness.
