Spictera snapshot - Instant Recovery for Spectrum Protect

Reduces the time it take to perform backup, using progresseive block level incremental forever (always incremental) backups.

Reduces the time it take to restore application data, using instant recovery.

"Why backing up data again if the data has not been changed?"

"The fastest way to backup data is to not back it up (again)"

"Why restoring all data if you can restore exactly what you want?"

"Why wait for all restore to complete before you can start using it?"

Backup process is a resource intensive task, that uses more resources the larger the data is.

Using spictera snapshot solution saves resources, as it does not require periodically full copies.

It also saves the amount of backup storage needed, as only the changed content will use backup storage.

Restore process is a resource intensive task, it restore more data than actually needed (full, incremental, transactional)

Using spictera snapshot solution shortens the time it take to restore, as the data can be used while restoration is in progress.

Spictera snapshot restore exactly what is needed, reduces the amount of data used for restoration

    Spictera snapshot - Instant Recovery for Spectrum Protect

    Faster data protection

    • Protect your data in minutes using progressive block level incremental forever (Always incremental)

    Improved revovery point objectives (RPO)

    • Possible to take backups more often
    • Less data loss
    • Less transactional data to restore (improves RTO)

    Improved recovery time objectives (RTO)

    • only one backup is needed to restore business
    • block to block copies are faster
    • Less transactional data to restore (improves RTO) if backups are taken more often
    • Instant recovery

    Financial improvements

    • Saves backup data usage
    • Saves Hardware resource
      • sending incremental changes uses less resoures than sending full data
      • restoring only what you need uses less resources than restoring full and all of its incremental backups
    • Saves outage time

     

  • Return on investment

    Using spictera snapshot saves:

    • backup storage
      • only changed content will be stored (no need for periodically full copies)
    • Reduced resources
      • copies only changed content
      • only restores what is required
    • Less data loss (RPO)
      • allows more frequent backups
    • Faster restore (RTO)
      • less transaction logs needs to be processed during recoveries
      • instant recovery
      • only one restore is needed (no need to restore full & all of its incrementals)
    • Use any type of hardware
      • unlimited nr of snapshots

  • Competitive advantage

    Application consistent snapshots without a need of expensive hardware

    • Space efficient backups
    • progressive block level incremental forever
    • Any hardware
    • Unlimited amounts of backups
    • backups are separated logically (airgap)
    • less dependent to disk setup
    • easy to restore to any place (same or new hardware)
    • instant restore
    • Dependend transactional data covered

    Hardware based snapshots are typically

    • limited to the amount of snapshots allowed to be taken.
    • Losing a disk, might lose all of the dependent snapshots
    • dependent on how application disk setup is designed
    • complex to restore to new hardware (flex clone dependencies, LUN conflicts etc)
    • Complex to protect dependent transactional data
