Abstract: 

Disk-based data protection solutions are used to augment and sometimes replace existing tape-based backup and data protection methodologies to deliver better information and application restore performance. These technologies work in parallel with the existing backup paradigm. This session will discuss many of these technologies in detail. Important considerations of data protection include performance, scale, regulatory compliance, recovery objectives and cost. Technologies include contemporary backup, disk based backups, deduplication, snapshots, continuous data protection and capacity optimized storage. Detail of these technologies will be provided as well as best practices recommendations for deployment in today's heterogeneous data centers.

Learning Objectives:

Understand legacy and contemporary storage technologies that provide advanced data protection
Compare and contrast advanced data protection alternatives
Gain insights into emerging DP technologies
