A co-worker recently shared an article from Storage Magazine, “Enterprise data protection shopping lists focus on cost, scalability”. The article included a survey and there was one question I found interesting. It made me think of the NetBackup 5330 Appliance and the fact that it is specifically designed for performance, especially when it comes to recovery.
In the survey, when asked what the most important factors were for evaluating and purchasing backup tech, 51% of respondents selected Recovery Time Objectives (RTO), the third most popular response. What was interesting was the #6 response - Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) with 39% respondents.
I liken the survey results of Backup and Recovery to Batman and Robin, both B&R. Recovery is often the overlooked partner of Backup. While Batman (Backup) may get top billing, people are realizing the importance of Robin (Recovery) and only having ½ of the dynamic duo (data protection) is not a solution. However, organizations are discovering that greater focus may be needed on recovery. In a disaster, recovery time is what gets the C level’s attention, and can make or break a career. Often your career.
We are addressing recovery time with the NetBackup 5330 appliance, an integrated purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA). It is designed and engineered for performance, both backup and recovery – and is delivering outstanding recovery results. Based on our internal testing, it restores 4.1TB per hour based on 8 streams at 98% deduplication. Let’s see how that stacks up:
If recovery is a key factor in meeting your data protection needs and service level agreements, I have two recommendations;
The NetBackup 5330 is engineered for performance, scale, and resiliency. To learn more about the NetBackup 5330 and its capabilities:
While backup performance often gets top billing, recovery performance is just as critical in order to make B&R the dynamic duo of data protection.
