IT organizations are looking for new and more advanced Availability and data protection solutions that work seamlessly in virtualized environments and provide just-in-time application restores and recoveries. In addition, they require backup storage that can protect data in a deduplicated format for enhanced efficiencies, without extending the backup window or increasing data restore and recovery time.

Veeam® and ExaGrid EX deduplication appliances provide businesses a very efficient and cost-effective way to ensure Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™ by providing recovery point and recovery time objectives (RTPO™) of < 15 minutes for ALL applications and data. ExaGrid backup appliances combine a unique backup storage landing (without dedupe) zone, to provide ultra-fast data ingest speeds and data recovery speeds; with a separate deduplicated storage repository to enable highly efficient long-term data retention on disk. Through ExaGrid’s embedded Veeam data mover, businesses can leverage Veeam Backup & Replication™ to speed up data transfers to ExaGrid backup appliances and to enable very rapid recovery of entire VMs and their associated application data. Read this solution brief to learn:

  • How to simplify backup management and improve application service levels
  • How to efficiently scale your backup infrastructure to meet the growing demands of the business
  • How to reduce IT costs and leverage your investments in backup infrastructure

White Paper

Author: Sander Berkouwer, IT Pro Evangelist, Microsoft MVP

While Active Directory (AD) has been around since Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft has continued to make adjustments and introduce features in newer Windows Server releases, especially in Windows Server 2012. What’s New in Active Directory 2016 covers different AD features and the requirements to enable them.

Scalability boundaries: RID & DNT improvements, resource SID compression

Learn about two big changes made by Microsoft in Windows Server 2012, which now allow AD environments to grow more easily, and beyond the limitations encountered by AD administrators.

Deployment and migration features: Deferred index creation, virtualization safeguards, Domain Controller (DC) cloning and new promotion and upgrade processes

Microsoft has released many improvements to make DC deployment and migration better than ever. Have you ever wondered how to prevent possible issues after a schema update? Do you know how to make your DC aware of the virtual environment to prevent data loss? Have you thought about using DC cloning so you can quickly create a replica DC for DR purposes? Have you heard about the new ways to promote a machine to DC? How about preparing an automatic update for the AD domain and a forest for new versions? Keep reading this white paper, we've got you covered!

Security features: Group Managed Service Accounts (gMSAs), Kerberos Armoring (FAST), Protected Users, Authentication Policies and Policy Silos, Dynamic Access Control and Privileged Access Management (PAM)

In Windows Server 2012 and WS 2012 R2, a couple of features have been introduced to enable domain admins to further lock down their AD environments. One new security feature is the Flexible Authentication Secure Tunneling (FAST) or Kerberos Armoring. Start solving common security problems with Kerberos and make sure that clients will never return to less- secure legacy protocols or weaker cryptographic methods.

On top of all that security goodness, Windows Server 2016 brings Privileged Access Management (PAM) that allows admins to only have administrative privileges when they need them through auto-expiration of these privileges. Did you know that PAM is the only secure way you could actually regain control over a compromised AD environment without throwing it away?

Manageability features: Active Directory Administrative Center, GUIs, expanded functionality

Learn about Active Directory Administrative Center (dsac.exe), which was first introduced with Windows Server 2008 R2. Read about Active Directory Administrative Center’s serious overhaul in Windows Server 2012. In addition to providing Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to new features in Active Directory 2012, the functionality has expanded to manage features that were previously only manageable on the command line.

Mobility features

Has your organization adopted a Hybrid Identity approach towards Azure Active Directory? Your AD can help get the devices your users use into Azure Active Directory with the help of Azure AD Connect and (optionally) AD FS. These features are not just Windows 10 devices, either.

Veeam Backup & Replication integrates with StoreOnce Catalyst client software to achieve source-side deduplication and virtual synthetic full backups, leading to more efficient backup data transfer, less network utilization and overall better performance in comparison to backup using traditional NAS protocols (CIFS and NFS). This guide covers the setup and configuration of Veeam Backup & Replication with HPE StoreOnce Catalyst for both on-site and off-site backup data retention.

Are you an AD newcomer looking for a guide on best practices? This webinar will provide you with Active Directory fundamentals for an easy start in setting up an AD environment.

As a backbone for network security, Active Directory is a critical component of any Windows-based distributed infrastructure. AD domain controllers (DC) determine and confirm access permissions for users and computers in the domain network. When deploying an Active Directory framework, it's vital to follow the best practices, otherwise you can put your infrastructure security at risk.

Addressing your challenges, our experts will share best practices for Active Directory deployment and explore its key features. Get a look under Active Directory's hood and dive into the specifics of its structure with a deep focus on DC installation, their types and configuration. In just 60 minutes, you will get a basic knowledge on Active Directory schema, objects and their attributes.

In this beginner's video, you will also learn more about:

  • Active Directory replication and its impact on high availability
  • The interaction of DNS and DHCP services with domain controllers
  • Best practices for deploying domain controllers
