1 1© Copyright 2010 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. EMC RECOVERPOINT TECHNICAL REVIEW Network-based intelligent data protection

2 2© Copyright 2010 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. Business Continuity Considerations What are your company’s most critical processes and data needs? How much data can you afford to lose? How quickly do you need to restore your critical processes? How vulnerable are your operations to disasters? Answer these questions with the right solution to mitigate these risks

4 4© Copyright 2010 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. Family Overview Replication independent of host and storage platforms Replicate data bi-directionally across different storage arrays from the same vendor— or different vendors –RecoverPoint/SE supports a single CLARiiON or unified array per-site –RecoverPoint supports multiple EMC and non-EMC storage arrays Creates independent local and/or remote copies of data Automates production rebuild/restart for testing, business continuity, and disaster recovery RecoverPoint SANFC/WAN RecoverPoint SAN

5 5© Copyright 2010 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. Family Details RecoverPoint—One solution for data protection, replication, and disaster recovery in mixed storage environments Heterogeneous storage array support Integrated with intelligent fabric from Brocade and Cisco Supports up to 600 TB of production data RecoverPoint/SE (for EMC CLARiiON)— One solution for data protection, replication, and disaster recovery for CLARiiON environments Supports Microsoft Windows host-based and CLARiiON array-based splitting only Single CLARiiON or Celerra Unified per site Supports up to 150 TB of production data Common functionality  Continuous data protection (CDP) for one set of LUNs in one SAN  Continuous remote replication (CRR) between LUNs in two SANs  Continuous local and remote (CLR) data protection that combines CDP and CRR  Heterogeneous operating system support  Flexible point-in-time recovery without production impact  Wizards automate production rebuild/restart from any point in time  Snapshot consolidation enables application-based recovery point objective (RPO)/recovery time objective (RTO); near-instant recovery reduces RTO  Application integration for Microsoft Exchange and SQL, other applications and databases  Integrated consistency groups support federated servers and storage  Synchronous or asynchronous local and/or remote replication with optional dynamic selection policies
