Traditional backup systems fail to meet the needs of modern organisations by focusing on backup, not recovery. They treat databases as generic files to be copied, rather than as transactional workloads with specific data integrity, consistency, performance, and availability requirements.

IBM’s Spectrum Protect offering boasts more than 20 years of achievement in the protection and recovery of key IT systems. So, it would be easy to suppose that IBM’s new Spectrum Protect Plus and Spectrum Copy Data Management software offerings simply represent “Spectrum Protect with extra features.” That assumption would be incorrect. They are standalone, reimagined approaches aiming to solve a daunting IT challenge—virtualization protection/recovery—and aspiring to attain a coveted IT outcome—effective data management and enablement (DM&E), referred to by many as “copy data management” (CDM).
This white paper describes how Fluid Data storage reduces the capacity required to support VMware, maximizes system performance and efficiency, accelerates storage provisioning, simplifies resource management and streamlines disaster recovery.
The global architecture and engineering firm Environmental Systems Design, Inc., had enough capacity to handle its data. The challenge was protecting that data. The firm would often have 15TB of data in production at a given time and its existing backup solutions simply could not keep pace. After quickly outgrowing several other systems, ESD turned to Nasuni’s enterprise storage as a service. Now, thanks to Nasuni’s automated backup, which delivers unlimited versioning, fast disaster recovery and an unmatched RPO, IT can stop worrying about backup and focus on its core mission of enhancing business productivity.
Your enterprise runs its critical
applications on Oracle Databases,
and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining
the performance and availability of your
databases is among your top priorities.
Any degradation in performance
or loss of data could result in serious
business disruption and loss of revenue,
so protecting this vital asset is a must.
There are many causes of data loss—
administration errors, system or media
failures, cyberattacks, and more—but
we often overlook design flaws in the
very systems meant to protect data:
general-purpose backup systems.
Many existing data protection solutions fail to
meet the demands of critical databases because
they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed
to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach
to database backup and recovery not only exposes
you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts
performance and makes it difficult to recover within

Additionally, highly regulated industries, such as financial
services, are subject to ever?increasing regulatory
mandates that require stringent protection against data

to eliminate data loss exposure and ensure data integrity

A Practical Guide to IDF/MDF Infrastructure Implementation
Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including
assessing the ability of your network to handle not only additio

The primary goal of this guide is not simply to provide a checklist of tasks, but to help you develop an understanding of the disaster recovery (DR) planning process and the principles that underlie it. Before getting into the details, let’s consider first just what this guide will do for you and equally importantly, what it will not do. What this guide will do is to lay out a framework for DR planning that keeps things conceptually simple and helps you know what steps must be carried out and why, without a lot of jargon or unnecessary formality.
Mid-sized businesses have long struggled to protect their IT systems. Many firms are inadequately protected and mistakenly think that a disaster is rare and won’t happen to them anytime soon. This custom Yankee Group Report uses customer interviews, statistical data and Yankee Group SMB survey results to examine disaster recovery (DR) issues.

VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables:
• Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and
common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining
user data and installed applications.
• Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster
recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.
