One of the most frequent comments I hear from customers utilizing big data or open source databases is, “I don’t need to backup my database because I have replication.” Unfortunately, this approach does not ideally protect your organization's data.
While many big data and open source databases offer some form of protection, such as replication, snapshots, or even inbuilt backup/recovery tools, they lack the point-in-time backup and recovery capabilities required to achieve and maintain enterprise-grade data protection.
As enterprises increasingly rely on non-traditional workloads for their mission critical applications, it’s more important than ever to understand the need for reliable backup and recovery of those environments.
Below, I’ve listed the leading 4 reasons to back up big data and open source database environments:
With Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2, customers can protect big data workloads, such as Hadoop/HBase, using our Parallel Streaming technology which enables point-in-time backups and eliminates the need for an extra replication clustering, at lower costs. Customers can also protect their open source databases, such as Postgres/MariaDB/MySQL/SQLite, using our simple plugin technology.
Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2 gives customers confidence that their data is protected, allowing them to meet SLAs and compliance mandates. For additional information, see Veritas NetBackup Modern Workload Protection.
