Abstract: 

Extending the enterprise backup paradigm with disk-based technologies allow users to significantly shrink or eliminate the backup time window. This tutorial focuses on various methodologies that can deliver an efficient and cost effective disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) solution. This includes approaches to storage pooling inside of modern backup applications, using disk and file systems within these pools, as well as how and when to utilize deduplication and virtual tape libraries (VTL) within these infrastructures.

Learning Objectives:

Get a basic grounding in backup and restore technology including tape, disk, snapshots, deduplication, virtual tape, and replication technologies
Compare and contrast backup and restore alternatives to achieve data protection and data recovery
Identify and define backup and restore operations and terms
