Top-Tier Managed Services Leverage Advanced Cloud/Virtualized Technology
Not long ago, before the epiphany of cloud computing, stunning advancements in application functionality and the cost efficiencies of managed services, you may have been compelled to emphasize either data protection or systems availability. What constituted risky exposure — the potential loss of important data or the interruption of application continuity? Businesses looked at the question from various perspectives; yet the TCO of top-tier data protection and systems availability could not be overlooked, despite the potential damage associated with unrecoverable data or operations downtime. Now, however, with SafeStor Enterprise, coupled with SafeHost DR®, UbiStor has broken down the barriers of cost and complexity so that any enterprise, large or small, can achieve a level of data protection and systems resiliency that represents true state-of-the-art disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity. Leveraging the feature-rich technology of CommVault Simpana backup-and-recovery software, in concert with UbiStor’s expertise in deploying custom-tailored, rapidly recoverable virtualized systems in the cloud, the SafeStor Enterprise solution is lock-sure effective and reliable.
Simpana: A Breakthrough in Enterprise Data Management
You probably face the challenge every day: Make sure data-retention protocol and data-recovery objectives are aligned with end-user requirements, Service Level Agreements (SLAs), compliance points and various proprietary issues. But you must meet this challenge without compromising ROI while the countervailing forces of compounding data growth, rapidly evolving technology and the geographical dispersion of thin-client devices redefine complexity and stress. UbiStor’s SafeStor Enterprise reduces the complexity and mitigates the stress through the remarkable power of CommVault Simpana, a foundation for Enterprise Data Management that delivers reliable data protection, multiple recovery/access options and sophisticated data-retention capabilities.
Perfect for organizations working with two-plus terabytes of data, easy-to-install Simpana can handle from one to thousands of servers deployed across a heterogeneous topology. It is compatible with a broad range of databases and ERP systems. Simpana is “self-managing” software; you define data-management policy through a convenient unified console and the smooth functionality of Simpana takes over, providing fast report-back information that confirms all data-protection, movement and storage activities throughout the universe of your computing environment. Daily updates on capacity usage, threshold warnings and trending afford transparency that helps circumvent problems.
Simpana’s automated power and efficiency are best harnessed through disk-to-disk backup to offsite storage, rendering manual tape-backup regimens obsolete and giving your IT staff the opportunity to dig into revenue-growth initiatives. Simpana coordinates backup-and-recovery policies for all parts of an interconnected platform. Multiple backup options for virtualized-server data protection in the cloud include image-level, file-level, volume-level and incremental delta-block image. Near-instant backup is achieved through SnapBackup functionality. Simpana’s Gen 3 data de-duplication reduces backup times by more than 50 percent. Plus, compression and encryption utilities increase speed and security when writing unique data to disk. Simpana even provides support for data mining and eDiscovery without the need for additional infrastructure. Moreover, in the event of a backup node failure, backup-and-recovery activities are automatically resumed on alternate nodes to guarantee job completion.
No other software can surpass the speed and efficiency of Simpana’s enterprise-wide data recovery/access when unplanned downtime strikes and a defined Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is put to the test, but your system administrators will be pleased to know that Simpana also enables granular, object-level recovery with easy, point-and-click browse and selection. This important granular functionality is realized through the integration of CommVault’s Intelligent DataAgents (iDAs) with your individual application program interfaces (APIs). This same kind of iDA empowerment helps facilitate finite protection and granular recovery of individual email messages, mailboxes and entire email databases.
Managed Services and a Fully Unified Solution
The highest level of data protection and data recoverability, assured by CommVault Simpana, is fundamental to the welfare of your business, but implementing systems redundancy focused on applications availability is something else. It means you’ve taken the important step towards 24/7/365 operations continuity. If downtime is cost-prohibitive, if both data and applications availability is mission-critical to your business, then UbiStor can leverage its exceptional, industry-leading managed services to tailor a Fully Unified SafeStor Enterprise Solution that incorporates the transforming power of SafeHost DR. UbiStor can help balance your data-centric RPO with a limited/no-risk applications-centric Recovery Time Objective.
UbiStor can roadmap a customized plan that strives to lower IT cost while elevating opportunities to better manage data and applications. At the heart of every plan is stronger alignment of IT with business goals. To help direct decision-making towards predictable OpEx modeling, the solution features pay-as-you-grow and pay-as-you-use-resources scalability plus capacity licensing that ease entry into advanced technology. Each Fully Unified SafeStor Enterprise Solution plan centers on balancing your data and systems/apps availability requirements against a higher-up concern on how, and how fast, those requirements may evolve as your business scales up and out. Furthermore, turnkey services, such as remote/onsite support and proactive monitoring, are built into the plan.
With UbiStor, you can choose among different, incrementally robust options in deploying and maintaining redundant systems on multi-tenant, secure, private-cloud/virtualized infrastructure. Each option affords a different “failover” (speed-of-systems recovery/access) level to match the RTO and budgets of varying enterprises. Full recovery/access embraces systems/apps, data and networks. A Fully Unified SafeStor Enterprise Solution may embrace redundancy of only a few severs on which critical applications, such as email services, are hosted. Or, perhaps, your needs require end-to-end enterprise systems redundancy, assuring seamless access to all applications in the event of unplanned downtime or when upgrades/maintenance to front-end production necessitate switchover to mirrored systems in the cloud. In a Fully Unified SafeStor Enterprise Solution deployment, all redundant systems are hosted off-site in a professionally staffed, highly secure, Tier-3+ data center having SSAE 16 (SOC-2) certification.
