Complexity, data growth and compliance regulations have become a major concern of every organization whether it is small or large. The complications quickly become IT resources for administration, operational costs, hardware costs and overall maintenance and support of the data protection infrastructure. Because of this, IT administrators often backup more data then they need due to lack of resources for e-discovery to sort non-essential data versus critical data. By utilizing centralized management, data reduction technologies such as delta block processing and de-duplication, an IT administrator can achieve an efficient and easy to manage data protection infrastructure, both for the data center and remote locations.
Maintaining and supporting backup agents can consume IT resources and cause more trouble than they are worth. Dealing with various operating systems, service pack levels, application compatibility issues can become a labor-intensive nightmare.
Pay only for the aggregate amount of compressed data backed up from across your network. No matter how many LANs you're protecting, there's no charge for local DS-Client software. Duplicate data from networked computers is sent to the vault only once. Adding machines to your network brings the average cost down.
Your expenses will also drop dramatically because there are no software license fees, or costs involved in maintaining and replacing tapes. But, perhaps most important, your data recovery is ensured, unlike tape backup.
Backups are automatic and rules-based. By not backing up duplicate files and transmitting only the new or changed data, companies can even use a DSL connection.
The system is efficient because it automatically stores the most critical data on disk for rapid access, and the less critical data, on tape that can be stored off site.
