2 Common IT business Challenges 4/5/2017Common IT business ChallengesProtecting information given exploding data growthDelivering a powerful and highly available infrastructureBalancing desired data protection RPO and RTO with costs and budgetsUnderstanding and preparing for all types of disasters and outagesTesting and assuring disaster recovery plansPresenter: While these bullets are great discussion points, be sure to ask audience for feedback and conversation around any pain- points that might exist in addition to these bullets. Use the results of that conversation to tailor this presentation and focus the time around the admitted pain points.After discussing each briefly ask the audience for feedback. Do they agree with the list? Are there things that should be added? What are the focus areas within this prospect from this list? You can then use gathered information as a basis for to schedule follow- up discussions around the problem.Avoid prescribing a solution before you have all the information you need about your specific customer’s view of problems.
3 Severe ramifications of data loss 93% of companies that lost the use of their data center for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster(Source: National Archives & Records Administration, Washington D.C.)Of the companies experiencing disasters, 43 percent never reopen, and 29 percent close within two years(Source: McGladrey & Pullen, LLP).The average cost of downtime as a function of labor (for large organizations) is $1,010,536 per hour(Source: Meta Group Study).A service interruption could cost a company (Bank) between $60,000 and $250,000 a minute(Source: U.S. Banker).Data unavailability results in lost revenue and possibly business failure
4 Replication is the answer Hitachi NAS replication delivers multiple benefitsHigh AvailabilityFault-tolerant, failure-resistant streamlined infrastructure with affordable cost foundationContinuous OperationsNon-disruptive backups and system maintenance coupled with continuous availability of applicationsDisaster RecoveryProtection against unplanned outages such as disasters through reliable, predictable recovery
5 Hitachi NAS Replication choices HNAS has three replication mechanisms availableFile Level ReplicationNDMP based data copy of filesWalks directory tree to build delta/incrementalBlock Level ReplicationLeverages underlying storage replication technologyEnables High Availability and advanced replication scenariosObject Level ReplicationOnly replicates objects changed since last checkpointResults in faster, more efficient replication
6 Object Replication is usually best Ideal for DR and data migration when backup windows are smallerUp to 2.8 times faster than file replication on full file replicationIdeal for fine granularityObject Replication:Fast and EfficientFile Replication: GranularBlock Replication: PowerfulDataObjectOnly tracking incremental changesIdeal for high availability configurationsEliminates traversing directories and files for small changesNo wasted empty containers sent

11 File Replication for fine granularity 4/5/2017Replicate only the files or directories you really needConceptSpecifically chose which files and/or directories you wish to replicateBenefitsEliminates time and resources wasted on replicating unneeded files or directoriesAllows informed decisions on what to replicateAbility to exclude temporary files or parts of a file system that hold no business valueSubstantially reduces the amount of data sent from the source machineDecreases the storage requirements of the destination system
