Enterprise data centers now have the capability to protect more while storing less, thanks to next generation data factoring technologies. ProtecTIER™, powered by HyperFactor™ enables customers to reduce required backup disk capacity by 25x’s -- according to Neville Yates, CTO of Diligent Technologies. Neville will present “Economically Change the Game of Backup and Recovery and Get Your Backup Environment under Control Operationally and Financially” at Storage Networking World, Fall 2005 – a leading conference for IT Managers, Storage Architects, and Infrastructure Professionals produced twice yearly by IDG’s Computerworld (http://www.computerworld.com) in partnership with the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA).

Yates will address how enterprise data centers have begun to leverage disk as a primary backup and restore medium for its advantages in speed and reliability. Keeping tapes from being lost or stolen is another often cited benefit of disk-based backup solutions. However, some professionals still view disk as too expensive. Yates builds from this context to cover strategies which employ new technologies to enable IT Managers to meet recovery point and recovery time objectives with an extremely compelling TCO.

Yates’ session at SNW will cover:

  • The role of tape in backup and recovery architecture—today and in the future
  • Next-generation disk-based backup and recovery options
  • Data factoring as applied to backup/recovery, archiving and HSM
  • How data factoring technology changes the economics of disk-based backup and recovery

“Even with disk coming onto the scene, there haven’t been any changes to basic backup practices and procedures,” explained Yates. “Diligent has pioneered solutions that change the economics of implementing disk-based backup and restore. By eliminating a lot of the repetition in data sets that lead to a large and costly backup environment, Diligent’s ProtecTIER data protection platform reduces required storage capacity by 25X or more.”

Diligent’s ProtecTIER platform, powered by HyperFactor, a game-changing factoring technology, enables customers to protect more data while recording less of it, all without disrupting existing policies, practices and procedures in their data center. With ProtecTIER, you can acquire a disk-based data protection solution below the cost of an equivalent tape-based offering – without compromising performance, capacity or data integrity.

Yates’ presentation takes place at 2:10-2:55 p.m. on Tuesday, October 25, 2005 during the Data Protection track of the conference agenda.
