Abstract: 

Extending the enterprise backup paradigm 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, snapshot, replication and 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 storage efficient technologies like deduplication within these infrastructures.

Learning Objectives

Get a basic grounding in backup and restore technology including tape, disk, snapshots, deduplication, and replication technologies.
Compare and contrast backup and restore alternatives to achieve data protection and data recovery.
Identify and define things to keep in mind when trying architect backup and recovery solution
