Backup refers to the copying of data so that these additional copies may be restored after a data loss event. Backups differ from archives and backup systems differ from fault-tolerant systems. Backups are useful primarily for two purposes: to restore a computer to an operational state following a disaster (called disaster recovery) and to restore small numbers of files after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted.
Organizations have gained significant benefit from virtualizing servers and storage environments, and now face the daunting task of deploying new network architectures to keep pace. Software-defined networking holds significant promise to deliver a new network architecture that is abstracted and virtualized; however, organizations would be well served to learn from previous efforts to virtualize other domains in order to avoid making the same mistakes. Riverbed and VMware joined forces to help eliminate those problems and make it easier to deploy VXLAN overlay networks in highly virtualized data centers by integrating application-aware network performance management software and vSphere 5.1
Enterprise IT teams face increasing challenges as the amount of valuable data living on endpoints continues to grow. Adding complexity is the mounting list of government regulations to which enterprises must comply. Read how endpoint backup can satisfy data collection and preservation requirements in a more streamlined and cost-effective manner than traditional e-discovery methods.
This guide was created to offer a preliminary understanding of
Cloud computing, so that business owners and managers will
be better positioned to make the move toward Cloud services
sooner, rather than later.
The cloud has gone mainstream, 75% of businesses are using or plan to use cloud based services. More Enterprises are adopting multi-cloud environments, 50% of IT leaders plan on using four or more cloud-based services.
Today, businesses of all sizes are adopting cloud services to accelerate growth, create more efficient operations and expand their reach. In this white paper, you’ll find scenarios and economic justification for making a shift to enterprise content collaboration with Box.
Following a series of in-depth interviews with Senior IT professionals in various industries this video provides their findings and the direct and in-direct value derived from using HPs Backup, Recovery and Archiving solutions.

Today’s data centers are taking the heat both literally and figuratively. With equipment generating enormous amounts of thermal energy, data centers continue to shovel operational funds into cooling as energy costs steadily climb.
As the cost of power continues to rise while the demand for computing capacity grows at an unprecedented rate, balancing the costs of cooling equipment against the need for uninterrupted uptime presents a constant challenge.
This IDC Executive Brief will discuss the evolution and challenges of data protection for virtual environments and how a modern data protection solution can enable both virtualization professionals and storage managers to perform successful backups, but more importantly guaranteed restores.
Learn why HPC users identify DDN as their storage provider more than any other storage-focused company, with twice the mentions of EMC, and more the twice the mentions of NetApp, Hitachi Data Systems, or Panasas.
Many companies still rely on a legacy, platform-specific data backup solution, even though it doesn't provide consistent backup across the enterprise. This outdated approach becomes especially risky when IT faces a data migration initiative. Organizations risk immense data loss and an expensive, intensive disaster recovery undertaking if they launch a data migration effort without first properly securing their data.
Recent headlines tout backup’s many failures and the struggles that organizations have with successfully executing on their backup strategies. Download this free white paper to learn how you can make backup a profitable service offering for your company.
