Modern Data Protection Architecture

Data Protection is changing. Today backup software can recover in place but instantiating volumes directly on the backup storage which enables organizations to significantly reduce recovery windows. The performance of the backup storage hardware matters more than ever. At the same time backup software can scale to manage petabytes of stored backup data, so keeping the hardware costs associated with storing this data in check is also critical. Finally, new compliance regulations mean that data within backups must meet both retention requirements and new data privacy demands.

Snapshot Based Instant Recovery

Snapshots have been available as a form of recovery for over a decade. The problem is that snapshots are unorganized and not typically integrated into the data protection process. As a result of the lack of integration, most organizations only keep a minimal number of snapshots. Storage system snapshots need to be integrated with and managed by the data protection software so that IT administrators have a single point of truth when trying to determine which is the most appropriate data set to recover

Recovery-In-Place from All-Flash Backup

The next tier in recovery is new to many IT planners, an all-flash backup tier. For most organizations, this tier can be relatively small in terms of capacity because it only needs to store enough information to recovery the latest copy of an application or dataset. Not all data needs to be sent to this tier. The backup process should only store protected data from workloads that need extremely rapid recovery, and performance similar to production. All other data can directly write to Tier 2, a higher capacity and lower cost but slower performance tier. Also, the storage making up this tier shouldn’t require many features since it is designed to be a temporary production system. The system used for Tier 1 though should be reliable with multiple points of redundancy since these systems could host production workloads for a period until the production system is repaired or replaced.

Long Term Retention from On-premises Object Store

The chances of an organization needing to restore backup data after even a few weeks of it being created become increasingly rare – and the need to perform an in-place recovery becomes even rarer. At the same time, organizations want to retain data in backups for months or even years to meet internal requirements and external compliance and regulations. Recovery of this retained data though is frequent enough that keeping the data on-premises is more practical than recovering all data from the cloud. Cloud storage becomes more expensive over time, and many restores from a cloud tier may incur significant egress fees.

Cloud Storage

IT planners can use the cloud storage tier in several ways. The most obvious way is to use cloud storage as a vault for long term data retention and where data is not accessed again unless multiple disasters occur. The infrequency of access enables organizations to use the least expensive cloud storage tier without worrying about excessive egress fees. It becomes the recovery point of last resort in case a site-wide disaster eliminates all the other copies of data.

Securing a distributed workforce

In the hybrid workplace of the future, identity becomes the new perimeter—the first line of defense for any organization. IT teams must look at scaling VPNs and multifactor authentication (MFA) to verify each user’s identity before allowing them access to the network. As companies fast-track their move to the cloud, it’s crucial to deploy secure access services edge architecture to ensure protection for multi-cloud access. SASE helps in defending against Internet-based threats, regardless of the connection, user device, or cloud environment. Lastly, securing the newly distributed workforce must be grounded in zero trust, an approach that assumes that all environments are compromised and works to identify and respond to threats in real-time.

Legacy infrastructure is not secured anymore

Organization needs scale to succeed in today’s highly competitive business environment. Adding new customers, introducing new products and services, and timely response to market demand requires agility – to support all these the infrastructure should be able to scale upon demand.

Backup & Recovery

Backup & Recovery as a service offers an end-to-end flexible, scalable, and reliable backup and recovery environment for all kinds of physical, virtual, file systems, databases, and application data. This solution further extends the richness of backup capability by using agents to interface with and do data transfer or image-based method with a combination of full and incremental backups. This combination provides an extremely high level of protection against data loss as well as simplified recovery.
