As data becomes not only a business enabler but also the base of the business’s competitive advantage, Always On data availability has become a critical business requirement from its IT organization. With multiple potential points of failure, IT organizations have been struggling for years to design data infrastructure to meet the Always On requirement with a high cost and complexity. For a solution to be truly Always On it needs to have both zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO=0) and zero Recovery Time Objective (RTO=0). These are necessary requirements from an Always On solution but by no means sufficient.

ESG Lab tested the HP XP24000 storage system to validate the business impact of the new capabilities of the XP24000, including HP Thin Provisioning Software, creating large logical pools of capacity and the enhanced performance of the XP24000 as a core component of HP's extensive portfolio of IT solutions and services.
No matter the size of the business, technology plays a critical role in its financial success. At the most basic level, companies have to deal with desktop and laptop computers for all their employees, e-mail, access to the Internet, Blackberries, and other kinds of on-site and remote devices. Add networking issues like viruses, spam and bandwidth utilization, and suddenly, this effort becomes a major challenge to anyone operating a small or mid-sized business (SMBs) with limited resources and a limited budget.
ESG Lab evaluated the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance from Oracle with a focus on its ability to deliver reliable data protection by recovering Oracle databases to any point in time with sub-second RPO in a highly scalable scale-out solution that is easy to use and manage.
Year after year, ESG respondents consistently cite improving data backup and recovery among the top IT priorities in our annual spending intentions survey (including 2016’s iteration). Why? Because when unforeseen infrastructure failures or data corruptions occur, the ability to restore not only business-critical information but also application and end-user access to that information become paramount. Lost or prolonged inaccessibility to business-critical data and applications most often means lost revenue and productivity to the business, and possibly the inability to meet regulatory requirements.
IT managers have indicated their two most significant challenges associated with managing unstructured data at multiple locations were keeping pace with data growth and improving data protection. Learn how the NetApp Distributed Content Repository provides advanced data protection and system recovery capabilities that can enable multiple data centers and remote offices to maintain access to data through hardware and software faults.
Although ESG continues to see the vast majority of IT organizations living within a disk-plus-tape world, no one can argue against the idea that the cloud is becoming a viable and attractive component of any data protection architecture. Modern disk and tape solutions have overwhelming benefits for ROI, but those benefits can often be expanded by leveraging the economics and additional agility capabilities of a cloud tier. And all of those tiers would benefit from smarter data protection and preservation mechanisms through the combination of both backups and archiving.

The Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance’s benefits
are compelling for any enterprise with a need to
protect critical Oracle databases. The differences
between this database recovery appliance and other
approaches to data protection are stark. The Recovery
Appliance leverages a combination of existing proven
technologies and new developments that eliminate
data loss and improve recovery. The elimination of
periods between backups when database changes are
not captured is also a major benefit, and the movement
to a process of frequent or constant incremental
backups provided by this appliance changes the game.

Companies that understand the key steps to ensuring smooth recovery from a disaster can choose solutions that meet today’s need and tomorrow’s. This white paper explains the five steps that are necessary to develop and implement a disaster recovery plan, and recommends tools, techniques and best practices to make your efforts a success.
Today’s organizations face a ballooning data management and risk problem. The use of laptops, tablets, workstations, servers and smartphones in the enterprise to create and store critical data is growing at an alarming rate.
Many companies still rely on a legacy, platform-specific data backup solution, even though it doesn’t provide consistent backup across the enterprise. This outdated approach becomes especially risky when IT faces a data migration initiative. Whether migrating to a new version or brand new hardware on the client or server—organizations risk immense data loss and an expensive, intensive disaster recovery undertaking if they launch a data migration effort without first properly securing their data.
Continuous, real-time data backup is the only viable solution for protecting all enterprise data while providing for a seamless migration process. But how do you achieve it?
