3 2 Agenda  HP & FalconStor announcement  Background  What is the HP VTL appliance?  What benefits does it deliver?  Who are the target customers?  Who can I contact with an opportunity?  Questions

4 3 HP & FalconStor Announcement  June 2004 – HP & FalconStor announced the Enterprise Backup Solution (EBS) Certification of VirtualTape Library (VTL) Software  The HP StorageWorks EBS certification;  defines best practices and solutions for addressing backup and recovery issues facing storage administrators.  includes FalconStor’s VirtualTape Library (VTL) software with HP OpenView Storage Data Protector, HP ProLiant DL580 server, HP StorageWorks MSA1000 disk array and HP StorageWorks ESL E-series tape libraries  designed to deliver a complete, enterprise-class data protection solution.

5 4 Disk Storage Used for Data Protection  The move to disk-based backup and recovery is occurring rapidly, growing to $5B in 2005  “Time to Recovery” is the real business driver Source: Strategic Research, April 2002 $ Billion

6 5 Paradigm Shift Disk Tape Backup Offsite Archive Immediate Business Continuance ??? Backup Offsite Archive Immediate Business Continuance Tape

7 6 Disk and Tape Pricing Trend $10,000 $1,000 $100 $10 $1 $ ATA Disk Year $ Per GB Tape

8 7 What is the HP VTL solution?  VTL - allows 3 rd party backup software to perform backup/restore to a disk-based ‘virtual tape/library’ over high- speed FC or IP SANs.  Emulates a large number of industry standard tape libraries and tapes drives from varying major vendors  The base system has the ability to support up to:  10 concurrent backup hosts  50 concurrent backup or restore sessions  50 virtual tape drives or 20 virtual tape libraries  100 virtual tape cartridges  The VTL can import / export to physical tape libraries  The VTL solution can replicate data over IP to an independent site

9 8 The HP VTL Solution Overview

10 9 Customer Pain: Time Allocation Customers increasingly say they spend too much time doing storage operations per week: (in order of consumption) 1. Backup operations 2. Provisioning storage 3. Managing tape libraries 4. Managing storage networks 5. Volume and file management 6. Archiving/HSM 7. Capacity planning 8. Disaster recovery management/testing 9. Monitor storage array failures

11 10 Customer IT Challenges  Reliability Issues  Experiencing backup/restore failures due to robotic failure or media error  Performance Issues  Backup window is shrinking  the fastest tape drive (LTO) can perform 30 MB/s (with optimal compression)  Restore is MUCH too slow (less than half the speed of backup)  Manageability/Staffing Issues  Difficult to partition and share large tape libraries  Can not centrally manage backup resources (Tape Drives/Libraries)  Need to provision virtualised tape drive/library to Backup Server over FC or IP SAN  Availability Issues  Need to maximize operating efficiency without compromising the investment in existing backup software and policy

12 11 VTL Appliance Customer/Business Benefits  Reliability  Eliminates robotic failure or media error  Active-Active cluster/disk mirroring delivers highest levels of fault tolerance  Performance  Achieves backup/restore speeds in excess of 100 MB/s  Manageability  Java-based Management Console provides centralized management  Provisions Virtual Tape Drive/Library over FC or IP SAN  Availability  Re-use/leverage existing backup device  Eliminates need to reconfigure the existing backup software/policy  Virtual Tape Drive/Library can be accessed over any IP network

13 12 Example of Target Customers  Problems meeting the backup window  Looking for faster restore’s for file & applications  Experienced excessive tape media, drive and robotic failures  Need to add tape drives as required  Want off-site tape vaulting  Require a solution that fits with the existing infrastructure  Interested in the overall benefits of D2D2T backup

14 13 Who to contact?  InTechnology HP Account Manager  FalconStor Account Managers (Ross Parker / Patrick Adams)  HP Account Manager  HP Whitepaper on VTL  Information on websites   BSCertification.asp
