Companies like this approach because it moves the backup process away from the virtual machines where their applications are running, which avoids any performance impact to the application.In this case, you would install the Avamar agent on the proxy host, treat it as the backup client, and run your backups from there to an Avamar Data Store. Because of VMware advancements, including the ability to run the proxy server in a virtual machine and to dynamically “hot-add” volumes to that proxy without physically moving data across the network, Avamar is able to back up large virtual machines in just minutes.Something to think about when considering backup for Vblocks or other large virtual computing environments with hundreds of virtual machines to protect.Avamar can load balance jobs across virtual proxy servers to assure that individual proxies are not overtaxed. Jobs can also be directed to available proxies to handle high-priority workloads. This approach helps drive down costs by having fewer proxies to manage.Avamar can also leverage some new capabilities provided by VMware to only back up changed blocks. This lessens the backup processing that Avamar has to do, and speeds up the backups even further.And Avamar’s architecture was designed to reconcile daily changed block backups into full instances for recovery. This is different from most backup applications that require at least a periodic full backup. This means Avamar can process the changed blocks identified by VMware into a new full recoverable image on an ongoing basis. As a result, recovery is much faster and more reliable.One feature that companies really would like is the ability to do one backup, and have the option of a bare-metal restore OR a more granular file-level recovery. Taking advantage of its integrated file system, Avamar can provide this capability—and you don’t have to mount the VMDK in order to do it.Finally, just as in physical environments, Avamar’s deduplicated replication of protected VMDK files allows for network-efficient disaster recovery—and importantly, great flexibility in how you can restore—either to the original virtual machine or to a new location.

Decreased costs come from increased efficiencies of current virtual machine infrastructure.= Données
6Intégration avec le vCenter VMware One of the great values of server virtualization is how much faster and easier it is to stand up a new server implementation. Virtual machines are easy to create, are portable, and can move from ESX host to ESX host automatically.When new virtual servers can be created in an instant, with a point and a click, how can you assure they are associated with the right backup policy?Avamar has taken the steps to integrate with VMware’s management tools—particularly vCenter Server—in order to make management of backup and recovery more effective.With Avamar, you can access vCenter Server directly from the Avamar user interface. New virtual machines are automatically discovered and displayed, so that administrators can apply an appropriate backup policy. Then VMs can be sorted so that their current backup status can be assessed.[Click] Administrators can see which virtual machines are backed up (either guest or image) and which ones are not well protected, and then they can make adjustments to correct.Point de gestion unique pour toutes les options de sauvegarde VMware

Unlike other backup software, which must create a metadata index during or after the backup is complete, Avamar’s native index provides end users with a granular view of image backup content, which can be used to perform file-level recovery without first requiring the image backup to be mounted. In addition, files can be restored to their original location or to an alternative location.

Leveraging Changed Block Tracking for backup, Avamar will restore VMware disk format (VMDK) files even faster. Let see how this works.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show mode for animation.First a snapshot of the VMDK is presented to the virtual proxy server and VMware presents Avamar with a list of changed blocks. Next Avamar will break these changed blocks into variable length segments to determine which specific segments are unique and sending only those segments to the Avamar Data Store. Now let’s take a look at the standard restore process.Prior to the Avamar 6.0 release, the recovery process simply restored either the full file (if in a Windows operating system) or the full VMDK image.Now Avamar tracks the delta of changed blocks to speed the recovery process by restoring only the unique elements required to rebuild the file, folder, or VMDK requested—resulting in much faster restores.CBT BlocksCBT Blocks
9Autres fonctionnalités Granularité disqueRestauration thin provisionnéeFaster recovery is accomplished in numerous ways with Avamar including file-level from an image-level backup done in Linux or Windows, disk-level granularity and thin-provisioned restore. All of these mean a faster recovery since most end-users only need to restore a file or folder at most. There is no need to restore the entire VM.Disk-level granularity allows you to minimize your backup times, reduce network traffic, and consume less storage by enabling backup and recover of only what is required. For example, a Windows VM may have a C:\ and D:\ drive but only the C:\ needs to be backed up. This feature allows a specific disk backup. On the restore side, if you backed up the whole VM and only lost a single drive you now have the ability to restore just that drive. On Linux you can also achieve greater efficiency by excluding a swap drive/partition.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show mode for animation.Thin-provisioned recovery will reduce storage consumption. VMware allows virtual machine disks to be thin-provisioned. A thin provisioned disk only consumes physical capacity for the amount of space that is actually in use. For example, if a VM has a 200GB disk but only 50GB is in use, only 50GB is actually reserved for that VM. Avamar can now preserve the thin-provisioned state of the VM, thus using less disk space.

11Intégration d’Avamar dans NetWorker 8.1 Nouvelle TopologievSpherevSphere Web ClientNetWorker Virtual Backup ApplianceProxy AvamarServeur NetWorkerAvamar Virtual EditionNetWorker v8.1VirtualBackup ApplianceAvamar 7 and NetWorker 8.1 will share the same fundamental dedup engine / technology implemented as a Virtual Backup Appliance to support Vmware backups and Recovery., meaning NW will benefit from teh same set of features that have been tocuh so far in this presentation, except for granular vmdk back.There will be mino rworkflow differences, i.e. some backup management feature will have to be configured in the „Avamar“ VBA, while the „NetWorker“ VBA will be exposed to a vSphere administrator only and does not require access for the NetWorker administrator. The NetWorker administrator will only care and setup the infrastructure to successfulyl run Vmware backups and Recoveries (i.e. backup target, retention policy, number of copies/replicas, scheduling). NetWorker has no notion of any of the VMs that need to be backed up, this means in particular that no configuration of any VM as a client in NetWorker and no (VM) client name resolution will be required anymore.There will be three non overlapping roles, a vSphere admin, who is responsible for assigning a VM to a backup policy ( we will touch on this a little bit later), a NetWorker backup admin, who will manage the backup infrastructure, i.e. the policy, and a (VM) client‘s system admin, who will run browser based recoveries.This is a true cloud based approach, as the VM admin will deal with the content, but not where the content will be backed up to. The NW admin will not deal with the content all all, but just determine where to put it and how many copies to create.The VM‘s system admin doesn‘t even know anything about how the content is protected, but has full control over file level recovery for Windows AND Linux.NetWorkerManagementConsolePlugin Client Web vSphere

14NetWorker 8.1 Configuration du workflow VBA Let‘s touch on how all the different bulding blocks come together. The vCenter will download the VBA from Powerlink or support.emc.com and deploy it in vCenter. It comes in .ova format. All values for proper network setup, like gateway, Ip address, network mask, name servers and host name, will have to be entered durign the pre-deployment phase.You will boot your VBA after deployment and continue with additional configuration steps. The configuration will typically not take less than a minute and the basic workflow is next, next, next [SPEAKERS: just advance from one to the next screenshot by hitting click or space]. NetWorker options have already been set and will just habe to be confirmed. Then you will set the timezone and change the VBA‘s password. Finally you will Finally you will register with vCenter and the NetWorker server. DEAL done. Configuration willbe finsihed that easily.A final screen will come up and show that all services are running. Please note that there will be no CLI configuration steps required at all. Please note as well (on the right hand pane of this very screenshot) , that you can collect all log files from the VBA without having to know where those are located or manual intervention.This is extremely easy and bullet proof.VBA will reboot and set up the NetWorkler resources as well as runnign internal checks, as soon as all configuration steps have been compelted.Though the VBA is based on Avamar, no Avamar knowledge will be required, though it wouldn‘t heart. VBA is under full control of NetWorker. Backups and Recovers can be run any time, as Avamar housekeeping will no longer block any operation.
15Monitoring de la politique de sauvegarde VMware NetWorker 8.1Intégration Vmware – Vue de la NMCReportingMonitoring de la politique de sauvegarde VMware[1. screenshot] A NW VBA resource will be created, as part of the VBA‘s first reboot process, for each VBA. Please note that you may deploy as many VBAs as you want, all of which can be leveraged and managed by Networker.Each VBA Networker resource will display status info of the VBA.Pleas enote as well that you can right click on the VBA resource and navigate from here to the VBA configuration or the vSPhere Web Client. A NetWorke r can set up NMC with read permissions for a vSphere admin and thus provide help how to logon to the VBA / vSphere cweb client. Hence no need to remenber a URL.[click twice]One of the core enhancements in NW 8.1 is the (VBA) policy/workflow manager. Policies are private to VBAs, but can as well be shared amoung VBAs.A Policy consists of a backup schedule and target at least. This is similar to a NetWorker group resource. However, you can creat edependencies in the policy manager, e.g. like creating an optional clone, as soon as the backup has finished. You may as well create multiple optional clonse, e.g. one to another DataDomain System and yet another to tape, i.e.e tape out is as easy as it always used to be in NetWorker.The workflow does require a DataDomain System, just because the entire workflow is optimzed for backup to and recover from disk. Direct tape out is not supported, but supported as a clone process. The workflow is presented as a picture as well. This is extremly handy for complex workflows.You can of course create as many clone copies, even with different retention policies, you may want. All NetWorker post-backup operations , like changing the retention policy, staging savesets and alike are supported.A Vmware backup can be monitored in NMC just like „savegroup“ backups. However, clones and clone status will be included in the view. A policy, similarly to a savegrp, can be started from NMC as well. There is as well a nsrpolicy command to easily integrate with third party job management frameworks.NetWorke rhas always been good on reporting and NetWorker 8.1 adds reporting for Vmware backups. This will enable you e.g. to review the dedup rate of your Vmware backups immediately.VBA Policy ManagerVue VBA

In other words, a VM willö be protected as soon as it has been deployed by the vSpehere admin. This is a major change to NetWorker 7.6.x and 8.0.x, as no configuration is required in NetWorker 8.1 at all.Autoprotection can be implemented by assigning a policy to a vCenter, ESX host or cluster and, yet again, as soon as a VM will be added to any of those VM resources, the policy of which will be applied to the VMs.Pretty slick, easy to use and bullet proof. Zero management for backup admin. Zero backup management for vSpehere admin. Those can focus on managing their Vcenter only !![click twice]The VBA‘s status and the backup progress is presented to the Vsphere admin, thanks to the smart integratioin in vCenter, as well. There is no need for a Vsphere admin to become familiar with NMC …The vSphere would as well run recovers for VMs from the Vsphere Web client GUI.All recovery option already known from Avamar (i.e choice of datastore to recover to, selection of provisioning modell, recover to existing, new or renamed VM ) are supported.Incremental restore, i.e. CBT image restore, is of course supported as wellRestaurationvCenter Backup UI Plugin

32EMC et Microsoft : une Alliance Unique EMC et MS partagent la même vision sur l’importance de l’informationUn partenariat de plus de 16 ans, continuellement accruPartenariat approfondi sur les produits comme sur les servicesPartage de propriétés intellectuellesEMC participe activement aux programmes Microsoft Technology Adopter Programs (TAPs) et Rapid Deployment Programs (RDP)Déploiements mutuels internes des technologies de l’autreDes milliers de clients communsRevues trimestrielles par le management22 fois élu Partner of the Yearconsultants worldwideAccord de supportEquipement dans les labs de RedmondWe often get asked why our alliance with Microsoft is unique. Our uniqueness really stems from the breadth of capabilities—across hardware, software, services and technology sharing—and the unique multi-level executive relationship we have with Microsoft. This is combined with the fact that EMC and Microsoft have aligned directions and solution sets. Microsoft’s march to the enterprise has quickly turned them into a software platform company, and one that is counted on for mission-critical applications. Their platform is also driving the lion’s share of information growth within our customers. These new technologies are the exciting next step. The fact that EMC’s data center experience, and focus on information infrastructure helps answer the challenges that Microsoft customers encounter as they move in this direction is one of the main reasons for EMC’s strong alliance with Microsoft.The rest of these areas we are about to discuss may not be unique on it’s own right, but the combination and depth of work that EMC and Microsoft work on in each of them truly separates us from the pack of Microsoft partners.EMC and Microsoft have a very specific, worldwide, customer-centric go-to-market alliance. This means that the two companies manage, at a corporate level, dedicated resources—both in terms of money and people—focused on developing, proposing and deploying joint solutions. Executives across multiple areas of our business meet regularly to discuss the progress of technology, business, and solution initiatives. This includes a detailed quarterly business review that occurs at an executive level.As many Microsoft partners do, EMC deploys Microsoft technology across our business for messaging and desktops among other areas. Often more interesting, is whether Microsoft puts the same faith in their partners technology. And Microsoft has placed significant investments in EMC technology to drive core areas of their business. Microsoft uses EMC hardware, software, and our services capabilities within its own IT environment.Lastly—and admittedly hard to specifically qualify—is that EMC and Microsoft have a large amount of synergies relative to addressing joint customer needs. EMC’s vast experience with mission-critical computing lines up with the increasing customer interest in leveraging Microsoft technology for these areas of their business. Our solutions are built to ensure the infrastructure is ready for those demands.Key facts to highlight:EMC has Proven deployment experience that speeds implementation and minimizes riskDeep virtualization expertiseHundreds of thousands of Exchange 2007 users migratedWe participate in Exchange 2010 TAP and Microsoft Rapid Deployment Program (RDP) ParticipantTalentThought leaders with elite Microsoft certifications provide in-depth expertise and insightWorldwide consultants certified as MCPs, MVPs, Rangers/Masters, and Certified ArchitectsOver 75% of program managers are certified PMPsMicrosoft RelationshipComprehensive alliance leverages the leadership and innovation of both organizationsGlobal System Integrator, Global Alliance Partner, Worldwide ISVMicrosoft Gold Certified Partner with 16 competencies21-time Partner of the Year winner; FASTforward Enterprise Search Innovation Award

For both Hyper-V 2008 R2 and Hyper-V 2012, Avamar now supports backup proxies for clustered shared volumes. These proxies (one per CSV) can be backup specific servers added to the CSV cluster or lightly loaded Hyper-V servers in the CSV cluster. The CSV Proxy can backup all of the Hyper-V servers in the cluster for impact free backups. Another capability is concurrent backups. In Avamar 6.1 and with Hyper-V 2008 R2, if a 4-node Hyper-V over CSV cluster was backed up, each Hyper-V server was backed up sequentially. The new Hyper-V 2012 over CSV Proxy support can backup all Hyper-V servers in the CSV cluster simultaneously.Hyper-V I/O Redirection Eliminated for BackupIn a Hyper-V 2008 R2 implementation, when a backup was started for one server in a Hyper-V over CSV cluster, all of the other Hyper-V servers in the cluster went into I/O redirection mode. This meant for the life of the backup, all of these other Hyper-V servers had to send their I/O write requests to the Hyper-V server being backed up, slowing their write I/O performance. This re-direction now eliminated in Hyper-V 2012 backups with Avamar.In-Guest VSS Options: Copy or Full BackupWith Avamar 6.1 and Hyper-V 2008 R2, when a VM was backed up, inside the guest a VSS full backup was performed, resulting in application log truncation. For Hyper-V 2012 Avamar now gives the user an option of full or copy. VSS Copy selection will not truncate in-guest application logs, so this helps customers that want to run VM image backups and in-guest application backups, with log truncation controlled in-guest.Exclude VM’s from BackupAdministrators can backup ‘ALL’ VMs in a Hyper-V over CSV cluster or stand-alone Hyper-V server and simply exclude certain VMs in an exclude list. This is much easier and faster to configure than having to add each VM to the policy.The Client Configuration Wizard makes setup even easier.So what does all mean to your customers? A long list of benefits including faster backups, no impact to Hyper-V servers during the backup, simplified configuration and management, increased operational flexibility and the support for all Hyper-V workloads. Just as Hyper-V 2012 provides advanced capabilities to handle more robust environments, so does Avamar 7.

This protection includes protection for the physical Hyper-V server itself including the base Windows operating system, OS system state, all data volumes and also Hyper-V configuration files.For virtual machines (VM’s) located on the Hyper-V server, Avamar completes a single image level backup for virtual machines, and this single backup can be used for image level recoveries along with granular level recoveries of files within the VM. This image level backup support leverages the Hyper-V VSS Writer for OS and application consistency within each guest. Avamar supports all of the VM guest level operating systems that Microsoft supports with Hyper-V.A unique part of the Avamar Hyper-V VM image level protection is there is no requirement for in-guest Avamar software. This reduces complexity for customers in maintaining Avamar software within each VM.The Avamar Hyper-V support is flexible enough to meet any customers Hyper-V deployments. There is full support for stand-alone Hyper-V servers and also Hyper-V servers in a cluster using Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV’s). Support for Hyper-V clusters is ‘federated’, in that backup schedules are set-up for the entire Hyper-V cluster and Avamar will automatically find VM’s wherever they are located.Avamar Hyper-V backups to Avamar DataStores or Data Domain Systems leverage multi-streaming, allowing multiple VM’s to be backed up simultaniously. This provides very high speed backups for large scale Hyper-V deployments.Virtual MachinesAPPOSAPPOSAPPOSServeur Windows Hyper-VServeur physique

The federated architecture provides failover resiliency for Hyper-V highly available virtual machines by determining the physical cluster node where a virtual machine is running at the time of a backup or recovery operation. This allows customers to set-up backup schedules for the entire Hyper-V cluster and Avamar will automatically find VM’s wherever they are located.Here is an example.

The federated architecture provides failover resiliency for Hyper-V highly available virtual machines by determining the physical cluster node where a virtual machine is running at the time of a backup or recovery operation. This allows customers to set-up backup schedules for the entire Hyper-V cluster and Avamar will automatically find VM’s wherever they are located.Here is an example. A customer has a Hyper-V Cluster with two Hyper-V physical servers in the cluster. Lets call these Hyper-V servers HV1 and HV2. Within the cluster are multiple virtual machines which can be live migrated from Hyper-V server HV1 and HV2 by the customer for operational or disaster recovery purposes. In this scenario, a customer would set-up Federated Hyper-V CSV Backup for the Hyper-V cluster, not individual Hyper-V servers in the cluster. This makes Hyper-V backup and recovery independent of the physical location of any given VM. VM1 could be located on Hyper-V server HV1 on Monday, migrated to Hyper-V server HV2 on Tuesday, and Avamar will automatically find it each data and protect it via a common data protection schedule.Hyper-V I/O Redirection Eliminated for BackupThis is one we ‘get for free’ from Microsoft in Hyper-V With Hyper-V 2008 R2, when backup was started for one server in a Hyper-V over CSV cluster, all of the other Hyper-V servers in the cluster went into I/O redirection mode. This meant for the life of the backup, all of these other Hyper-V servers had to send their I/O write requests to the Hyper-V server being backed up, slowing their write I/O performance. This is now eliminated in Hyper-V 2012Clustered SharedVolumesProxyBackupHyper-V over CSV

41Restauration granulaires Hyper-V (GLR) Proxy de restauration granulaire Hyper-V (GLR)Monte rapidement les backups image Hyper-V depuis les savesets pour restaurer répertoires et fichiers au niveau guestAvamar supports Granular Level Recoveries (GLR) from VM image level backups. With Hyper-V GLR, users can select a VM within the Avamar MCGUI and virtually mount this VM to a Windows Hyper-V GLR Proxy. Once virtually mounted, a process which takes seconds, users have the ability to browse directories and files within the VM for granular recoveries. All while the VM image is still resident within an Avamar DataStore or Data Domain System in a highly deduplicated state.Note that Hyper-V GLR is only supported for Windows OS file system formats (FAT/FAT32/NTFS)
42Backup des applications critiques Les agents/modules assurent la consistance applicativeApplication-specific agent within each VM ensures consistent state for hot backupDeduplicates within and across virtual machinesReduces resource contention and speeds backupsProvides file-level restore for Windows, Linux, and SolarisNo charge for agentsMany companies today continue to choose to backup VMware at the guest level. The main advantages of this approach, as we’ve said, is its simplicity and familiarity. This approach is great for file-level backup and recovery.In this scenario, the Avamar agent is installed inside the virtual machine. When the backup runs, data is reduced within the virtual machine, and only new unique segments are moved and stored. The key benefit is that because it eliminates the backup bottleneck caused by contention for shared resources, Avamar really helps companies optimize consolidation ratios and get the most out of their VMware investment.Another benefit is that because operating system- or application-specific agents run in the virtual machine, application consistency can be guaranteed.And Avamar agents are free. You are only charged for the deduplicated capacity that you consume, so you can deploy agents as you like, which is great for virtual environments where virtual machines tend to come and go very quickly.APPOSVM1APPOSVM2APPOSVM3APPOSVM4APPOSVM5APPOSVM6APPOSVM7APPOSVM8Infrastructure virtualisée
