Leading experts discuss VMware data protection and disaster recovery issues

Columbus, Ohio, March 2, 2010 – Veeam Software, innovative provider of data protection, disaster recovery and systems management solutions for VMware virtual datacenter environments, has worked with leading industry experts and analysts to offer four new white papers focusing on how virtualization can help organizations of all sizes dramatically improve IT services by taking data protection and disaster recovery to the next level, while significantly reducing the cost. Each white paper is available for free download at http://www.veeam.com/go/vmware-vexperts-white-paper-series. “Virtualization completely changes how IT is done today, including application and data protection,” explained Ratmir Timashev, Veeam President and CEO. “For example, advanced data protection and disaster recovery techniques, such as continuous data protection (CDP), used to be affordable only by the largest enterprises for their most mission-critical applications. Thanks to virtualization, companies of all sizes can now use near-CDP for all applications. We know that it takes valuable time to search the Internet for best practices and expert advice, so we are pleased to bring this expert information directly to the community.” The virtualization experts’ white paper series includes the following: 1.  openBench Labs Independent Review: Veeam Backup & Replication vs. Symantec NetBackup – In this independent lab review by Jack Fegreus, Managing Director at openBench Labs and recognized industry expert, Veeam Backup & Replication 4.1 is compared with Symantec NetBackup 6.5.4. Veeam demonstrated a backup speed four times faster than Symantec and required three times less backup storage space. Different configurations with VMware consolidated backup (VCB) and vStorage application programming interfaces (APIs), with and without compression and de-duplication, were tested. 2.  ESG: The Data Center of the Future – In this white paper, Enterprise Strategy Group Analysts Mike Bowker and Lauren Whitehouse highlight top IT priorities and challenges that will drive building the data center of the future. It also covers common pitfalls and false promises of virtualization that companies should avoid. 3.   How Virtualization Cuts CDP Costs by 80 Percent – David Davis, VMware vExpert and Director of Infrastructure at TrainSignal.com, compares three different options for implementing CDP. He also demonstrates how near-CDP has become the most affordable and logical disaster recovery choice for businesses of all sizes. 4.  5 Ways VMware vSphere Improves Backup and Recovery – Eric Siebert, VMware vExpert and Senior Systems Administrator, explains how organizations can use new VMware vSphere and vStorage technologies to improve data protection and disaster recovery: reducing storage consumption by 30 percent, speeding up full backups by 50 percent and incremental backups by 90 percent, and providing near-CDP for 20 percent of the cost of traditional CDP, all while increasing reliability.
