1Deduplication backup software and system EMC AVAMARNote to Presenter: Present to customers and prospects to provide them with an overview of Avamar.Thank you for joining us today. EMC Avamar revolutionizes the way companies approach backup and recovery through the use of client-side variable length global deduplication and single step recovery. Avamar is a key part of EMC’s overall backup and recovery portfolio of software, hardware, and services that is unmatched in the industry. With Avamar, you will never back up the same data twice.Deduplication backup software and system
2COMPLIANCE and DISCOVERY IT Pressures20090.8 zettabytes202035.2 zettabytesDATA DELUGEBUDGET DILEMMAHere are the key pressures that threaten customer objectives.From an IDC study, in 2010 there were 1.2 zettabytes of information. That’s a trillion billion—a massive amount of information to be managed. It is estimated that by 2020, there will be 60 zettabytes of information. Our data deluge will grow 50-times this decade. This growth is putting a strain on backup windows, storage costs, and management.IT organizations are not dissatisfied with the amount of money they’re spending on their IT, but rather with the fact that nearly three-quarters, or 73 percent, goes to maintaining existing legacy systems, both infrastructure and applications. Customers complain about the complexity of their backup solutions. The feeling is that too much time, expertise, and effort is spent keeping the current recovery system(s) afloat. They want the backup process to be less costly, and need less supervision and administrative attention.Infrastructure is the foundation of IT so that’s what changes first. In 2009, an important trend began whereby virtual servers were being delivered in greater numbers than physical servers, that is, we have reached a tipping point. Server virtualization changes the environment in both subtle and profound ways. In many shops today, backup methods have been barely altered to accommodate this new virtual infrastructure so it’s important to lay the proper data protection foundation early on.And now customers must ensure compliance with regulatory and litigation requirements and can no longer rely on past traditional practice of simply keeping tape backups around for years and years.TransformationINFRASTRUCTURE SHIFTCOMPLIANCE and DISCOVERY
3EMC Avamar Deduplication backup software and system Reduces backup time and network loadClient-side deduplicationDaily full backups and one-step recoveryOptimized for physical and virtual environmentsHigh availability and reliabilityLowers costs and risksIntegrated with EMC Data DomainAvamar is a deduplication backup software and system—an integrated backup and recovery software and purpose-built backup appliance solution for comprehensive backup and recovery across the enterprise. Avamar’s unique client-side global deduplication technology eliminates redundant backup data that is sent over the network and stored. Avamar deduplicates at the client, whether virtual or physical, and across sites and servers.The Avamar Data Store has integrated high availability and reliability with RAIN (Redundant Array of Independent Nodes) architecture, daily recoverability verification, and disaster recovery through replication. Avamar is proven to lower costs and remove risks associated with traditional backup. Avamar is tightly integrated with Data Domain systems through DD Boost software.AvamarVM
4Solve Backup Problem Areas Uniquely suited for the most challenging backup environmentsVirtualizationRemote OfficeNASThe makeup of a company’s information storage environment varies greatly and so does the unique backup challenges for each area. Avamar was designed from the ground up, as a deduplication backup software and system, made to handle the backup requirements for virtualized environments, remote offices, NAS, desktop/laptop, and the most pervasive enterprise applications such as Microsoft SQL, SharePoint, and Exchange; Oracle and Oracle RAC; and IBM DB2 and Lotus Domino. Avamar streamlines backup and recovery for the enterprise, dramatically reducing backup windows and network traffic.AvamarEnterpriseApplicationsDesktop andLaptop
5Avamar—Unlike Anything Else in the Industry Reduce:Data moved by 99%Backup storage by 95%NIC usage at the client by 95%Backup times by 90%Implementing Avamar brings dramatic benefits to backup and recovery —as much as 99 percent reduction in data moved over existing networks.Deduplication results in a 95 percent reduction in disk and network usage as well as dramatic improvements in CPU usage.Backup times are reduced up to 90 percent.
6Deduplication Is the Enabler Move and store less dataNetworkNote to Presenter: View in Slide Show mode for animation.Here’s a high-level look at how Avamar works.Avamar starts by dividing data into variable-length sub-file segments. It compresses them and applies a unique hash identifier to each one. Then it can determine if that segment has ever been backed up before or whether it‘s unique and needs to be backed up.If the data has been backed up previously, either from this client, or any other—physical or virtual—then Avamar will not back it up again. This is why we say, “Never back up the same data twice.”Using this process, Avamar routinely reduces data by up to 99 percent before backing it up. This can have a huge impact.Also, the data that is truly new and unique is sent across the network compressed, which again helps with bandwidth management on both backups and recoveries. And it’s also encrypted, which ensures the security of the data while it’s in transit as well as when it is at rest.BACDDDAACCCBBBDAADivides data into variable-length sub-file segmentsDetermines if segments are unique or duplicateBacks up only unique dataSends data compressed and encrypted
7Real-World ResultsAvamar daily full backups vs. traditional full backupsData TypeAmount of Primary Data Backed UpAmount of Data Moved DailyWindows file systems3,573 GB6.1 GBMix of Windows, Linux, and UNIX file systems5,097 GB11.7 GBEngineering files on NAS (NDMP backups)3,265 GB24.2 GBMix of 20% databases, 80% file systems (Windows and UNIX)9,583 GB80.0 GBMix of Linux file systems and databases7,831 GB104.2 GBLet’s talk about some of the real-world numbers. There’s a great deal of confusion about deduplication ratios. Keep in mind that an Avamar daily backup, which is what we’re looking at in this chart, amounts to a full backup so these numbers are in comparison to doing a daily full backup.Also, keep in mind that with any backup, including Avamar, you will store the initial full backup, plus the changes. Avamar does deduplicate within the initial full and can get you up to 70 percent reduction, depending on how much duplication exists. Still, when evaluating storage capacity, which EMC can help you do, you need to take into account primary data, plus retention policies. Avamar’s savings are dramatic here, too. In traditional backup scenarios, EMC has seen customers require storage that’s 10 times or even 25 times their primary data—to store several months’ worth of weekly full and daily incremental backups. Avamar might require one, two, or three times, and will deliver the same retention periods, plus much easier restores.Now, let’s look at the chart specifically…Avamar has industry-leading deduplication technology, and the numbers in this chart are based on real-world customer examples. As you can see, depending on your data mix, you’ll get different levels of data deduplication.For Windows and UNIX file systems environments, where there is a lot of duplication of operating systems, applications, and at the file level, you will see the highest levels of data deduplication.When it comes to a mix of file systems and databases, deduplication levels are slightly lower, but still impressive.While the numbers are impressive overall, it’s really the benefits that companies achieve when using Avamar that’s exciting. You can achieve new levels of data protection in historically problematic areas for backup and recovery, while driving improved total cost of ownership.Note to Presenter: The most important point about deduplication ratios—both for competitive products and EMC’s—is that results may vary. The amount of deduplication achievable depends on a number of factors, including type of deduplication (file-based, sub-file, etc.), retention policies, data change rates, and data types.Source: EMCWhile results will vary by data type and mix, Avamardramatically improves backup performance and efficiency
8Replicate Smarter Using Existing Networks Avamar 99% efficiency reduces or eliminates need for tapeOFFSITE REPLICATION WITHOUT DEDUPLICATIONREPLICATION AFTER DEDUPLICATIONNote to Presenter: View in Slide Show mode for animation.With Avamar you can replicate smarter using existing networks.In order to ensure protection from site disasters, backup images need to be copied to a secondary site. Traditionally, organizations have shipped backup tapes to secure sites and then retrieved those tapes when needed to complete a site recovery.Increasingly tight recovery SLAs have forced many companies to try to speed up the recovery process. As a result, backup replication over networks is emerging as a preferred method for protection from site disasters.But many times, either there’s simply too much data to replicate—and/or the network is insufficient to support the replication process within a reasonable amount of time.And, as you can imagine, the investment in increasing bandwidth capacity can be very significant.Performing deduplication for backup, then replicating the deduplicated data is a good strategy for making data recovery more feasible and economical.The reduced backup image resulting from deduplication directly reduces the amount of content needed at the secondary site.Backup deduplication directly lowers the infrastructure, time, operational overhead, and bandwidth costs needed to create backup images at the disaster recovery site.In addition, disk-to-disk backup replication obviously eliminates the risks associated with shipping physical tape cartridges.Replicate Only UniqueDaily ChangesPrimary SiteRemote SitePrimary SiteRemote SiteMaximize efficiency, drives down costs for business continuity and disaster recovery protection
9Shorten Backup/Recovery Times Avamar shrinks backups and speeds data recoveryTRADITIONAL BACKUPAVAMAR BACKUPAs a result of moving less data, Avamar technology can dramatically reduce the amount of time required for backups.Traditional backup typically consists of a weekly full backup followed by a daily incremental backup. This backup process consistently sends redundant files/data for backup. As the amount of data in the company’s environment grows, so does the backup window.The restore process is also very time consuming. The backup administrator must first restore the most recent weekly full backup to a disk staging area, and then restore each of the daily incremental backups.Finally a temporary environment contains the latest week of data so the file/files/folder/ DB/etc. can be restored. If the backup tapes are offsite, it may take up to 24 hours to complete this process.With Avamar, deduplication is part of the backup process. Avamar applies its variable-length deduplication algorithm to identify only unique changed blocks. It does this on a daily basis and creates a daily full backup in a fraction of the time compared to traditional backup. Customers typically see a 95 percent reduction in backup windows and 99 percent reduction in network traffic during the backup process.Avamar also provides a single-step restore process from disk – the data is always at your fingertips. Recovery time can be minutes compared to many hors or even days with traditional backup.Long backup cyclesLaborious restore processUp to 90% faster backupsSimple, one-step recoveryMeet strict SLAs for RTO and RPO

Companies require high availability solutions and guaranteed recoverability of data, and Avamar delivers with a valuable set of patented technologies.Avamar uses patented Redundant Array of Independent Nodes, or RAIN technology, to deliver high availability. RAIN works in a very similar way to RAID. If you lose an Avamar server node, Avamar can read/write around that, which means backups and restores can continue without interruption.Avamar uses a grid architecture, which makes it easy to increase performance or disk capacity in a very granular fashion, and data is automatically load-balanced across all the available resources in the grid.The Avamar server automatically checks itself twice daily using internal checkpoints. If a problem is detected, the server will roll back to a previous checkpoint. Also, Avamar verifies that backup data is fully recoverable, automatically every day—so there are no surprises when a recovery is needed.And of course, there is also RAID protection in each of Avamar’s servers.These high-availability features ensure that Avamar provides the reliability that companies of all sizes require.The fourth generation of the Avamar Data Store purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA) provides five node sizes: 1.3 TB, 2.0 TB, 2.6 TB, 3.9 TB, and 7.8 TB. Each of these nodes can be used as single replicated nodes. To build a RAIN grid, only the 2.0 TB, 3.9 TB and 7.8 TB nodes can be used.Lastly, Avamar includes replication software to cover disaster recovery requirements. Avamar replicates only the daily unique changes, thus leveraging existing network bandwidth.VirtualizationUtility nodeSpare nodeVerified checkpoint

13Simplify with Scalable Management Avamar manages multi-sites from a single locationIntuitive, web-based interfaceAt-a-glance dashboardsCapacity reporting and alertingSpecialized management interface for desktop and laptop clientsNote to Presenter: View in Slide Show mode for animation.Many companies have deployed multiple Avamar systems within their environment, particular in the area of remote office data protection where local Avamar systems are deployed within larger remote offices to provide local backup and restore capabilities. In order to facilitate the management of these distributed Avamar deployments, Avamar delivers the ability within a single interface to monitor and manage multiple Avamar systems.Avamar’s at-a-glance dashboard allows backup administrators to quickly assess both the status of backups across the enterprise as well as the status of all Avamar systems in a distributed Avamar deployment. The dashboard also enables users to quickly drill down into a particular Avamar system to manage that system or to review granular system and backup status.Data protection for desktop/laptops comes with a specialized management module designed to manage thousands of workstations.Policy-based management over existing network bandwidth

And since it’s Avamar technology, it requires little bandwidth because the same data is never backed up twice, providing up to 10 times faster daily backup.Avamar in Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh desktop/laptop environments is easy to install and use and it operates in the background, nondisruptively to the end user.An end-user interface eliminates the intervention of the Help Desk to restore data to end users’ desktops or laptops. End users are automatically backed up when logged in during normal backup windows. Alternatively, users can initiate backups on their own. Similarly, with the help of a powerful search engine, they can restore their own files at any time, and from anywhere, without contacting their IT Help Desk.EMC expects the majority of its customers’ IT departments to use their standard desktop deployment tools (like SMS) to install the Avamar client on end-user systems, and to eventually include the Avamar client in their master image so that all new PCs come with Avamar installed. Policies (what to backup, when to run the backups, and how long to retain them) are managed at an (Avamar) domain or group level, so administrators can implement and enforce policies globally—or by well-defined organizational entities. For instance, while you may consider all Microsoft Word and Excel files to be corporate assets, you may only allow JPEGs or MP3s to be backed up on behalf of the Marketing group.Finally, Avamar’s traditional capacity licensing model is really simple and means that you don’t have to generate certificates or move licenses when you add users, or when your existing users upgrade to a new computer.Windows or Mac OS X.AvamarData Store
18Avamar for Enterprise Applications Integration with Data Domain offers speed and scaleAvamar directs backups to optimal appliance based on workload attributesAvamar manages backups, restores, replication, and maintenance for all systemsNASROBOThe diagram illustrates common backup workloads on the left. Currently, all of these can be delivered to an Avamar Data Store, but now you can direct high change-rate workloads to Data Domain systems.Note to Presenter: Click now in Slide Show mode for animation.Integration with Data Domain allows the highlighted workloads to be sent to the Data Domain system to take advantage of its scale and performance. Now customers can use a single management interface and take advantage of client-side or in-line deduplication based on workloads in order to meet backup windows and provide the highest levels of reliable recovery.In this use case, integration of Avamar and Data Domain is leveraged to accelerate the backup of larger, high change-rate environments. The integration takes advantage of the combined intellectual properties of both Avamar and Data Domain. In particular, DD Boost is exploited to distribute the deduplication process and minimize blocks moved without the processing required for a full Avamar scan. This approach is ideal for environments made up of fewer, larger files with a great deal of change.You can continue to get the benefits of Data Domain’s robust architecture featuring SISL (Stream-Informed Segment Layout) highly scalable architecture and DIA (Data Invulnerability Architecture), while leveraging Avamar’s application plug-ins, which guarantee consistent hot backup, and an easy-to-use management interface. Moreover, virtually all of Avamar’s stand- alone features and functions apply to the integrated solution.Data Domain SystemDD BoostOracle, SQL Server,Exchange, SharePoint, SAP, Sybase, VMware, Hyper-V, IBM DB2VMAvamar ClientAvamar Data StoreDBSharePoint

Lightweight, efficient Avamar agents are always deployed on systems to be backed up. They deduplicate at the source and then send any new, unique sub-file data segments to an Avamar server that can be local or connected through a WAN. When it comes to remote offices, Avamar gives you a number of options.For larger sites, you may choose to back up locally to an Avamar single node for fast local backup and recovery. Then that Avamar single node can be replicated to a disaster recovery site, hub site, or data center, as required.For small remote sites, you can simply place Avamar software agents on the systems to be protected with no additional local hardware needed, and back them up directly across the network to a main data center or disaster recovery site.Direct to Avamar Data Storein the Data CenterSMALL REMOTE OFFICE

No matter what size or industry, Avamar provides flexible deployment options and fits into your environment. For desktops and laptops, only lightweight Avamar agents are deployed. They deduplicate and send only unique data compressed and encrypted to the Avamar Data Store at the data center. The same holds true for small remote offices; no extra hardware or backup storage is required, thus reducing costs and management overhead. For larger sites, you may choose to back up locally to an Avamar single node or to the Avamar Virtual Edition for fast local backup and recovery. This enables faster recovery of a large amount of data without having to traverse the WAN. Replication to the data center is required to ensure disaster recovery criteria are met. For virtualized environments, Avamar is optimized to provide application-consistent backups through guest-level agents, as well as bare metal recovery from agentless image-level backup.Avamar Protects at theGuest and the Image LevelSMALL REMOTE OFFICESECONDARY SITEVIRTUALIZED ENVIRONMENTSVirtual Infrastructure
21Disk-Based Backup/Restore Extended RetentionExport to VTL or TapeAvamar Data StoreData Domain SystemAvamar controls extended retention through the Extended Retention GUI. Avamar can create extended retention for any data it stores to the Avamar Data Store or the Data Domain system by exporting that data to the Media Access Node and then onto a VTL or tape. Avamar will also enable a restore VTL or tape by importing directly to the system designated (and containing the Avamar Client agent).The Media Access Node is a new node type in the Data Store Gen4 family, and different from all others. There are a two specifications that could be relevant here: the connector type and speed of the Fibre Channel interface.All software is hosted on the Media Access Node:Administrative/monitoring user interfaceStreaming engineLibrary managementRestore serverThe single-step process of moving data to VTL and tape is a read-only operation from Avamar. This does not expire data on the grid (that is under exclusive control of Avamar backup policy). Avamar exports any backup data it has written to an Avamar Data Store, Avamar Virtual Edition, or a Data Domain system. The exported data contains all data in native format, and then compresses it to reduce size. The Media Access Node will then send this exported data to only a SCSI-based tape library or Virtual Tape Library (VTL).A Data Domain system with the Data Domain Virtual Tape Library software option is the VTL of choice. EMC Data Domain Virtual Tape Library software, available for all Data Domain systems, emulates multiple tape libraries over a Fibre Channel interface. Optionally, in addition to using the DD VTL software, one can also leverage the Data Domain Extended Retention software option for environments requiring years of backup retention. DD Extended Retention, available for the DD860 or DD990, extends the Data Domain architecture with an internal tiering approach designed to enable cost-effective, long-term retention of backup data on deduplicated disk. Please note that only the DD VTL software option (not DD Extended Retention) is required to send data from the Avamar Media Access Node to the Data Domain system through Fibre Channel.Restores are a two-step process:Import reads data off VTL or tape into internal Avamar instance (Restore Server) within the Media Access NodeRestoring to target machine performed through standard Avamar Administrator associated with Restore ServerAvamar Virtual EditionManagement UIData Domain System with DD VTLDisk-Based Backup/RestoreAVEExportorRestore (Import)Avamar ClientMedia Access NodeTape Library or VTL

23Summary Comprehensive backup and recovery for: Virtual, NAS, enterprise applications, remote office and desktop/laptopsDeduplicated daily full backupsShorten backup/recovery timesImprove bandwidth efficiencyShrink storage requirementsOne-step recovery is fast and easyPurpose-built backup applianceTurnkey solution; reliability designed inAvamar is a key element of EMC’s next-generation backup portfolio.By storing data more cost-effectively on disk, Avamar provides data protection where enterprises no longer have to use tape as their primary method to recover data in the event of a failure or loss, and where disk can be the de facto medium for backup and recovery.Avamar's backup and recovery software has an important difference—Avamar’s unique variable- length, client-side global data deduplication technology eliminates the unnecessary transmission of redundant backup data that is sent over the network and stored. This defuses the enormous amount of data growth. Avamar deduplicates at the client and across sites and servers. As a result, Avamar technology can dramatically reduce the amount of time required for backups and reduce the impact on the network. This data reduction also alters the fundamental economics of disk versus tape, allowing companies to cost-effectively back up data to disk at a cost that is equal to, or less than, tape.
