Achieving Cost-Effective Disaster Recovery Readiness

Our Disaster Recovery services help you design, plan and implement sound, actionable disaster recovery solutions that ensure your data is restorable within specific recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives.

Our DR services are:

architected to address both production and non-production recovery requirements
verifiable and tested
fully supported with appropriate policies and procedures

With the typical data warehouse doubling in size every six to nine months, organizations need to squeeze the highest possible utilization from storage and plan capacity additions carefully. The number of data sources feeding data warehouses is growing rapidly, solutions that can help restore the data warehouse immediately after a disaster are required.

With our Disaster Recovery services, organizations can perform frequent, space-efficient backups of data warehouses and recover data in minutes. Efficient, low-cost replication makes disaster recovery economically viable, and our cloning technologies eliminate the need for additional physical copies of databases, data warehouses, data marts, development and test, or other functions. NetApp's storage efficiency significantly raises overall storage utilization while delivering the flexibility, scalability, and performance needed for continued growth.

Snapshot™ software, the original and most functional point-in-time copy technology, enables you to protect your data with no performance impact and minimal consumption of storage space.

Our Snapshot technology enables you to create point-in-time copies of file systems, which you can use to protect data—from a single file to a complete disaster recovery solution.

You can use this technology while applications are running and create a Snapshot copies in less than a second, regardless of volume size or level of activity on your NetApp system. Make up to 255 Snapshot copies per volume, instantly, to create online backups for user-driven recovery.

NetApp® SnapMirror® is our flagship data replication solution that not only can provide disaster recovery protection for your business-critical data, but also enables your DR site for other business activities so you can turn your disaster recovery solution into a business accelerator.

Leveraging the unified storage architecture, SnapMirror simplifies the management of data replication so you can use a single solution across all NetApp storage arrays and protocols for any application in both virtual and traditional environments in a variety of configurations. You can also tune SnapMirror to meet a full range of recovery point objectives from zero seconds to hours. And, the recovery process supports low recovery time objectives, so you get back to business faster.

Speed and Simplicity for Backup and Recovery

Designed to safeguard NetApp® data faster and more cost effectively, SnapVault® leverages disk-based backup and block-level incrementals for reliable, low-overhead backup and recovery suitable for any environment.

With SnapVault, data protection occurs at the block level–copying only the data blocks that have changed since the last backup, not entire files. This enables backups to run more frequently and utilize less capacity because no redundant data must be moved or stored.

Data Warehouse disaster recovery requirements equal those of production databases.
Efficient replication with NetApp SnapMirror makes disaster recovery economically viable.
