DATA PROTECTION IN A VIRTUALIZED ENVIRONMENT – ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS: INTRODUCTION(part 5)

INTRODUCTION(part 5)

1.6 Our Suggestions and Recommendations

EMC has a strong portfolio of data protection solutions for VMware environments including Data Domain, Avamar, NetWorker and Data Protection Advisor. All of EMC data protection solutions are tightly aligned and integrated with VMware.

VM environments require the same level of data protection as does the physical server environment. Companies may use data protection tools built for the physical environment in the virtual world, but this has serious disadvantages. Ideally companies will use virtualization-aware versions of data protection tools that guard both virtual applications and physical infrastructure.

VMware and EMC provide a fully integrated set of tools designed to optimize data protection across virtual networks as well as their physical counterparts. The tools enable customers to preserve ease-of-use across even complex environments. In addition to sophisticated infrastructure management and optimization, the toolset provides file/image-level backup, data deduplication and highly reliable recovery at data and server levels. Customers may leverage the same data protection processes over all operating systems and applications across VMware environments.

As customers move through the phases of virtualization adoption, data protection must evolve as well. This is the only way that customers can realize the benefits of virtualization from the initial deployment all the way up to the virtualized data center. EMC offers customers data protection leadership and experience, a broad portfolio of hardware, software and services for virtualized environments, and a very close relationship with VMware. These factors position EMC as a premiere trusted partner and key enabler of dynamic virtualization..

There are many advantages of EMC’s data protection systems:

1.7 Backup Software and Storage Systems

EMC backup software with variable length data deduplication optimizes file-level backup for virtualized applications. For file-level backups, backup software with data deduplication eliminates traditional backup bottlenecks caused by the large amount of redundant data that must pass through the same set of shared resources — the physical server’s CPU, Ethernet adapter, memory, and disk storage. Data deduplication reduces the traditional backup load — up to 200 percent weekly — to as little as 2 percent over the same day period, dramatically reducing backup times and resource utilization.

EMC storage systems can deduplicate redundant data before it is saved on disk, which reduces the size of the image-backup sets by 10-30x on average. EMC backup software and storage systems also support network optimized replication between sites. By combining VMware-based replication with EMC’s broad portfolio of replication products, VMware customers can access efficient replication for business continuity and disaster recovery.

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
