DESCRIPTION

More virtual servers are being deployed today than ever. Although this improves storage efficiencies for organizations, protecting data in mixed physical/virtual environments can be alarmingly complex and costly. Learn how to cost-effectively protect mixed environments: Simplified, non-disruptive continuous data protection for all data Improved data mobility by extending the value of VAAI to any storage infrastructure Virtual storage for virtual servers Automated recovery including P2P, V2V, P2V, V2P

FalconStors integration with VMware FalconStor solutions provide VMware data protection Integration with vStorage APIs for best performance 100% transactional integrity of data for fast restores Enabling accelerated data mobility and provisioning Integration with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager for 1-click Disaster Recovery Physical-to-virtual, Physical-to-physical, and Virtual-to-virtual Recovery with FalconStor RecoverTrac technology Protecting Physical &amp; Virtual Environments Together 9 Copyright 2013 FalconStor Software All Rights Reserved </li> <li> 10. VMware vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) Challenges of VMware Backup Protecting Physical &amp; Virtual Environments Together 10 Copyright 2013 FalconStor Software All Rights Reserved </li> <li> 11. VMware Backup Challenges with VADP Lack of Application-aware Snapshots Performance impacts Backup scheduling Need for additional storage No integration with vCenter Site Recovery Manager Protecting Physical &amp; Virtual Environments Together 11 Copyright 2013 FalconStor Software All Rights Reserved </li> <li> 12. VADP Backup at a Glance Backup Software triggers VMware snapshot VMware ESXi &amp; ESX Snapshot is created Protecting Physical &amp; Virtual Environments Together 12 Copyright 2013 FalconStor Software All Rights Reserved Data copied to Backup Server </li> <li> 13. How Backup Vendors Integrate with VMware Production read &amp; write 1. Normal operational mode, read/write activity to the VM. VMDK SAN Storage LUN Production reads Production writes &amp; reads Backup reads redo-log file VMDK VMDK 2. After snapshot is initiated for VADP/CBT backup, all new writes go to redo-log file for the length of the backup. LUN now used for production (read/write) plus backup processing (read). Production read &amp; write VMDK redo-log file Copy accumulated writes Protecting Physical &amp; Virtual Environments Together 13 Copyright 2013 FalconStor Software All Rights Reserved 3. Upon completion of VADP/CBT backup, data accumulated in the redo-log file must be written back to the VM. </li> <li> 14. Result: Significant Performance Impact Multiple VM backups overlapped Long backup window, redo log files take space Heavy production I/O VM1 Production read &amp; write VMDK-1 Backup Window redo-log file Copy accumulated writes VM2 VMDK-2 redo-log file VM3 VMDK-3 Protecting Physical &amp; Virtual Environments Together 14 Copyright 2013 FalconStor Software All Rights Reserved redo-log file </li> <li> 15.
