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.
This business-oriented white paper summarizes the wide-ranging benefits of the Hadoop platform, highlights common data processing use cases and explores examples of specific use cases in vertical industries.
Download to watch why everyone's approach to storage has to change. Due to server virtualization and next generation applications, there is a new batch of storage challenges that businesses have learn to overcome.
In this white paper, we look at various cloud models, and assess their suitability to solve IT challenges. We provide recommendations on what to look for in a cloud provider. Finally, we take a look at the IBM Cloud portfolio.
This paper will help you to understand the importance of creating a DRP for your company. This is a critical step in preparing for disaster, improving employee response, reducing downtime, and quickly returning to normalcy.
This Technology Spotlight examines the issues that are driving organizations to replace older archive and backup-and-restore systems with business continuity and always-available solutions that can scale to handle extreme data growth while leveraging a cloudbased pricing model.
“Do more with less” seems to be the dogmatic decree that confronts today’s IT professionals as they struggle to reconcile constrained budgets with apparently limitless growth in unstructured and structured data. With costly primary storage rapidly filling up (and slowing down), the need to migrate less active data onto a more cost-effective storage tier is clear.
Ballooning data growth and ever-shrinking IT budgets have combined to push higher-density disk arrays to the forefront for almost any organization contemplating investment in new backup solutions. That’s not surprising; after all, the promise of more backup capacity and performance in less data center real estate sounds irresistible to anyone seeking greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness from their existing IT infrastructure.
Why do data centers need network automation? As application workloads are redefined, data centers must change. This IDC Whitepaper looks at how network automation and orchestration can aid this transition, building simpler and more agile networks.
