3 HDS, Sepaton and Symantec: Better Together! 4/16/2017What happens when the fastest deduplication teams up with the most reliable storage and the industry’s leading backup application?Industry Leading PerformancePredictable and reliable backup performanceFast restores with no rehydration penaltyUnmatched ScalabilityPay-as-you-grow scalability up to 4 PetaBytesMaximum Efficiency and Cost SavingsLowers CapEx costs by maximizing storage utilizationReduces required energy, cooling and floor space costsMarket Leading OST IntegrationHighest level of OST integration in the industryMission Critical Application ProtectionHigh-speed multi-stream database backup with deduplicationAccelerated protection of virtual platforms like HyperV and VMwareThe World’s Best Value for Business Recovery!
4 Sepaton Scalability & Performance in Action Scalable PerformanceBackup up to 10 TB per hour per node (System scales to 8 nodes & 80 TB/hour)“Before Sepaton, we fought to meet our backup windows. With Sepaton, performance has been amazing. We meet our windows and everything is clean. The Sepaton system is bulletproof.”Scalable CapacityUsable Capacity (before dedupe) scales from 48TB to 4 PB per system“We are storing far more data in less physical space than we did with our previous deduplication system.”

9 What is Symantec OST Auto Image Replication? Symantec OST Auto Image Replication (AIR) is used to replicate backup images between multiple NetBackup domains and/or NetBackup masters, often across various geographical sites, to improve disaster recovery Replication is controlled by NetBackup but executed by SepatonLeverages Sepaton’s built-in replication capabilities including one-to- one and many-to-one replicationAutomatic catalog management at primary and remote sitesLeverages deduplication to replicate only unique data between the Sepaton devices to reduce the impact on the network between the sitesSepaton has chosen to support OST A.I.R. to support mutli-domain Netbackup environments, typical in Enterprise environments. Opt_Dup, is for single domain environments and will be supported at a later date.

Sepaton becomes the industry leader in the OST market by offering the first certified implementation of A.I.R. by an independent vendor. OST A.I.R. is a licensed and chargeable feature. A.I.R. requires NetBackup Release 7.1 or later. Multi-site, multi-domain replication. Unlike Symantec’s first- generation Optimized Duplication feature for OST, A.I.R. supports multiple NetBackup domains. Multiple domains are critical for effective Disaster Recovery because they eliminate dependence on the inter-site communications link for accessing the single catalog in a single domain design. In a single domain system, the customer has to decide whether the active catalog is maintained at the primary or secondary site. If the link between the sites goes down, one site will lose access to the catalog and will have to bring up a new NBU master server and import catalogs from the VTL before any backup or restore operations can begin.Fully-automated operations. A.I.R. automates the import of catalog updates into the target site, eliminating the need for any operator actions or customer-supplied scripts.High-Performance replication. OST supports load-balancing over multiple nodes. A.I.R. supports replication over multiple links. OST A.I.R. supports ingest on one or more 10GbE links and replication on one or more 1GbE links. Like DeltaRemote, A.I.R. transmits highly-deduplicated data to optimize the required bandwidth.Simple GUI-based management. The Sepaton management console provides an OST replication configuration panel where source-target pairs are defined. Once the pairs are configured, the storage administrator controls replication using NetBackup Storage Lifecycle Policies from the NBU console.Simplified licensing. Unlike DeltaRemote, OST A.I.R. is licensed on both source and target systems. There is no licensing restriction on the fan-in or fan-out for replication.History Reporting. The OST history report provides information for tracking replication jobs and determining the efficiency of transfers. This is all done via a plug in? are there any other software components we have developed I can mention besides DeltaStor gui?Sepaton replication controlled by NetBackupDesigned for DR across multi-domain environmentsDeployable across the enterprise – branch office locationsMinimizes RTO, reduces riskNo importing catalog or tape during DREliminate human errors - Automation through Storage Lifecycle Policies minimizes risk of failuresEnables efficient storage utilizationManage multiple retention times based on business needs
11 What is Symantec OST Optimized Duplication? Symantec OST Optimized Duplication (Opt Dup) is used to duplicate backup images within a single NetBackup domain from one OST device (e.g. Sepaton PBBA) to anotherNetBackup manages the process which is executed by SepatonNetBackup receives the file metadata so it can update the catalogsLeverages deduplication to replicate only unique data between the Sepaton devices to reduce the impact on the network between the sitesSepaton has chosen to support OST A.I.R. to support mutli-domain Netbackup environments, typical in Enterprise environments. Opt_Dup, is for single domain environments and will be supported at a later date.

13 What is a Optimized Synthetic Backup? Symantec’s Optimized Synthetic Backup is used to “synthesize” a full backup from a combination of previous full and incremental backupsEliminates need to perform full backups on client systems*Client’s CPU and memory resources are used minimallyReduces network bandwidth and storage requirementsFull data sets are not moved over networkLeverages Sepaton deduplication to minimizes storage usedLowers risk and improves business RPOMore frequent backups means less potential for data lossShorter backups allow multiple backups per day (approaching CDP)Sepaton has chosen to support OST A.I.R. to support mutli-domain Netbackup environments, typical in Enterprise environments. Opt_Dup, is for single domain environments and will be supported at a later date.
14 Why Use Optimized Synthetic Backups? Creates a Restore Ready Full BackupNo “FULL+INC+INC+INC” path to recoveryFaster recovery time improves RTOBackups are smaller and take less timeImproves time to safety (local copy)Backups can be performed more oftenMore restore points improves RPOLess RiskSimpler administrationLess TimeLess data to moveMore AgileMore restore pointsEnables faster backups by synthesizing full backups in the Sepaton appliance using incremental backups and the last full backup. NetBackup now offers TSM-like “incremental-forever” backups without the disadvantage of having to restore from the last backup and subsequent incrementals. An OST Optimized Synthetic backup looks like a single full backup to NBU and the backup administrator. This approach greatly simplifies restores and improves the likelihood of successful recoveries.Shorter backup windows enable multiple backups per day, improved RPOs. Since many full backups are eliminated, it becomes feasible to do more than one backup per day, thus improving the recovery point objective. (Note that the NBU catalog will grow as additional synthetic full backups are performed.)
15 Symantec Optimized Synthetic Backups ClientIncremental BackupFull BackupOptimized SyntheticIncremental backupsLightning fast backups!Load Balanced Media ServersToday’s traditional synthetic full is created by pulling data through the media server then writing the new full image back to the device.Optimized SyntheticOptimized synthetics are created immediately by the backup appliance. NetBackup instructs which parts of previous backups to use. Backup appliance creates a pointer map – no data movement required.
