Backup & Replication

Server virtualization—the ability to run multiple independent workloads on the same physical server—has brought sweeping changes to IT. This is especially true for data protection and disaster recovery, where virtualization makes it possible to back up an entire virtual machine in one image-level backup and restore that virtual machine on any host in one easy step. But are image-level backups reliable? It’s a fair question, given that snapshots are taken on the fly, without taking systems offline. In this presentation, we’ll explore a whole new approach to backup verification that goes beyond simply verifying the integrity of the archive file to ensuring that applications and data can actually be recovered. It’s an approach that makes image-level backups a viable—and, in fact, superior—way to back up systems and data. Data protection is about to change—for the better. Don’t be left behind.
