2 You've estimated that half of your data protection and disaster recovery budget is wasted The challenge now is figuring out which half We can help You've estimated that half of your data protection and disaster recovery budget is wasted

3 Three truths about disasters Disasters are real-time 1 No business is immune 2 Impact is more than financial 3

4 A few facts about disaster recovery (DR) 53% of US midsize firms want to increase their DR effectiveness IDC, 03/2006 50% of all small and midsize businesses will go out of business within three years if they can’t get back their data in 24 hours Gartner 50% of companies have no DR solution in place Applied Research, 12/2005 42% of IT executives have been unable to recover data from tape as a result of tape unreliability Yankee Group, 03/2004 Natural disaster Other Computer virus Software problem Human error Hardware problem 2% 3% 4% 9% 26% 56% Downtime across all application environments Source: ProgresSmart, StorageWorld Confrence, June 2005 LowHigh Time Minutes Days Revenue and Reputation Impact Business Impact Financial performance Damaged reputation Productivity/employees Sales/customer relationship

5 Top 5 reasons for no DR solution 33% cite lack of resources 1 27% don’t see a need 2 20% say it’s too complex 3 12% say it’s too expensive 4 8% won’t risk the downtime 5 Source: Applied Research, 2006

6 Do you feel lucky? Are you willing to gamble on your company’s future? How well protected is your data? How well prepared is your company for a disaster? How would you grade your company’s disaster readiness? 39% of CIOs gave their disaster recovery plans a grade of C or lower

7 Making the grade An A+ DR solution varies by company and industry −Priorities for protection and availability vary −Acceptable times for recovery vary −Critical risks vary −One-size-does-NOT-fit-all The choices can be daunting HP and VMware can help

8 A conventional approach to DR Conventional DR approach is generally reliable, but … −Maintaining duplicate environment is expensive, complex, error prone −Unsaved file system/cache data can be lost −Duplicate environments that don’t match exactly risk boot failure Production site Operating System Application Hardware Data Disaster recovery site Operating System Application Hardware Data Data Replication dedicated connection Duplicate HW, OS, App P1DR1

9 The HP and VMware approach to DR HP and VMware approach is revolutionary – protection and availability −Matching, duplicate hardware is NOT required −Delivers continuous, real-time data protection with application fail-over OS Application File System Data Replication over any IP network Hardware Data Hardware OS App FS Production site Disaster recovery site P1DR1 VMware Virtual Machine

10 How HP and VMware DR works OS Application File System Data any IP network Hardware Data Hardware OS App FS Production Site Disaster Recovery Site P1DR1 VMware Virtual Machine 1. HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring is installed on production (source) and DR virtual machine (target) 2. Source volumes and files to be replicated are selected; target servers/path are selected 3. Storage Mirroring synchronizes first at block-level; ongoing updates are made at the byte-level 4. Target server continuously monitors source for problems 5. If problem is detected, target initiates fail-over and user redirection 6. With problem diagnosed, fail-back releases source to rejoin the network 7. Restore capabilities return current data to source

11 Example deployment scenario 1 Small company consolidates to the HP BladeSystem c3000 enclosure Older servers from the consolidation are repurposed as DR targets VMware ESX Server is installed on targets and 8 virtual machines are created HP BladeSystem c3000 enclosure IP network Virtual machines Conceptual only – images not to scale

12 Example deployment scenario 2 Midsize company with cross-hosted production and DR resources HP StorageWorks SB600c Storage Blades for iSCSI SAN and Windows ® file server (NAS) VMware ESX Server with 5 virtual machines on DR targets HP BladeSystem c3000 enclosure Virtual machines HP BladeSystem c3000 enclosure Virtual machines IP network

13 The better approach to DR HP Storage Mirroring Continuous, real-time data protection plus automatic fail-over for application availability Works on standard LAN or WAN with efficient byte-level replication to conserve network bandwidth HP BladeSystem Consolidated from the start to simplify and save on costs, time and energy Built-in redundancy for no single point of failure plus active monitoring and automated fail-over VMware ESX Server Duplicate hardware needs are eliminated reducing costs and complexity Many virtual machines on one server improve utilization plus new virtual machines can be provisioned in minutes The bottom line Delivers comprehensive data protection and recovery with fail-over on an infrastructure that is easy on the budget and ready to grow Expert HP and VMware partners with experience to tailor this solution to your exact requirements are available worldwide

14 Addressing the top 5 reasons for no DR solution 50% of midsize companies down for more than 24 hours go out of business 27% don’t see a need 2 Ability to redeploy hardware Add new hardware in less time Ability to redeploy reduces costs HP and Partner Services make implementation easier Ability to replicate data in real-time minimizes downtime during transition 33% cite lack of resources 1 20% say it’s too complex 3 12% say it’s too expensive 4 8% won’t risk the downtime 5 Source: Applied Research, 2006
