DATA PROTECTION IN A VIRTUALIZED ENVIRONMENT – ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS: VMWARE INTEGRATION

EMC and VMware combine to leverage image-level backups with vStorage APIs for Data Protection. The integrated stack provides scheduled, recoverable and bootable backups for the virtualized environment. EMC’s support for VMware vStorage APIs for Data Protection allows customer to perform image-level backups without impacting network application performance. EMC simplifies the management of virtual machine backup policies (guest- and image-level) through its integration with VMware vCenter.

DEDUPLICATION

Given the large size of many virtual installations, storage volumes grow to dizzying size under the onslaught of backed up images. EMC steps in to reduce the size of backup files, which can easily overwhelm network bandwidth and storage resources. EMC provides both backup software-based and storage system-based deduplication services.

EMC deduplication leverages physical and virtualization data protection factors to provide a next-generation backup environment. It supports both virtual and physical environments simultaneously, allowing customers to lower the cost and improved backup operations for all applications.

RECOVERY OPERATIONS

EMC solutions use the performance and reliability of disk-based storage to ensure recoverability and meet service level agreements.

EMC integrates with VMware to efficiently schedule, track, and recover backed up data including files and bootable images. The management console captures all of this information as part of the standard backup process, ensuring that administrators always have an up-to-date image to use for recovery and/or migration purposes. This is a much easier and more efficient approach than traditional data protection, which requires separate products and schedules to back up system configuration and data files. The central management console provides efficient management operations from a single pane of glass. Data recovery access is controlled through the single log on. Other components are aware of data recovery operations so that the integrated management of all components is optimized.

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.
