High Speed Backup Strategies Using Distributed Disk Systems

The need of fast, safe and reliable backups of data has been a demand of any computing environment. The most common method of backing up large amounts of data has been the use of tape or disk systems that stream images of the source data to a remote or removable media device. The key problems with this is that with the large amounts of data that need to be backed up the backup can take many hours to run and in most cases will take over double that time to do a restore. Recent advancements in SANs and NAS disk systems have given users the ability to backup data at any time at a low economic and time cost. This presentation will compare this new technology with old backup methods and will describe details on how this new backup and storage method works.
