Spring 2009
Introduction to Data Protection:  Backup to Tape, Disk and Beyond
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 virtual tape libraries (VTL) within these infrastructures.

Trends in Data Protection and Restoration Technologies
Many disk technologies, both old and new, are being used to augment tried and true backup methodologies to deliver better information and application restoration performance. These technologies work in parallel to the existing backup paradigm, either synergistically or completely orthogonally. This session will discuss many of these technologies in detail, including snapshots, full-copy snapshots (mirror-splits), small aperture snapshots (SAS), Virtual Tape Libraries (VTL), as well as continuous data protection (CDP) in its various forms. Detail about how these technologies operate will be provided as well as best practices recommendations for deployment in today's heterogeneous data centers.

Deduplication Methods for Achieving Data Efficiency
Deduplication has become a very popular topic in the industry because of the potentially large reduction in cost and increase in efficiency it offers.  Deduplication technologies are being promoted at various points within the storage network including source deduplication, deduplication of data in transit, and deduplication at the storage destination.  Deduplication technologies are also being promoted in all tiers: backup, archiving, and primary storage.  Each of these storage use cases represents a unique set of challenges. Implementing any deduplication technology has major implications for scale, performance, and functionality.  Deduplication also has long term legal and compliance implications for records management.  This session will review various deduplication technologies available and the implications of each.

Compliance Storage:  The risk of retention and deletion in the face of FRCP
The new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedures, FRCP, have changed the face of the business risk of retaining information in an uncontrolled manner. eDiscovery requirements to produce legally and forensically authentic information impact IT and storage operations in ways you may have never considered. This presentation will update you on current requirements and best practices and how they affect the management of your storage resources and information assets.

Retaining Information for 100 Years
Many organizations now have a requirement to preserve large volumes of digital content indefinitely into the future, and to maintain access to that content for medical treatment decisions, e-discovery, appreciation ofcultural and scientific history etc. Frequent news stories cover organizations' failure to be able to do this, such as the near loss of original video and data of the first Moon landing, eventually recovered from a set of 14-inch tape reels found in dusty Australian basement.This session will focus on the most important questions in long-term digital preservation, and understand why it is still so difficult. Suggestions will be made as to how the storage industry can allow its customers to keep and make use of their digital content over the lifetimes that they expect from past experience with physical and analog assets, lifetimes that can greatly exceed those of any single digital storage device or storage technology.

Best Practices for Long-Term Retention of Digital Information
Compliance, legal, business, discovery, and security risk have changed the value and risk of owning and administrating information within the datacenter. Old approaches to   retaining, preserving, and disposing of information in multiple isolated and 'siloed'   'electronic archives' no longer meet today's requirements for reduced operating costs, scale,   and high efficiencies. This presentation highlights new work being spearheaded by the SNIA's   Data Management Forum to produce a reference architecture for best practices in long-term digital information retention based on information-lifecycle-management methods.
