Backup And Recovery
Backup refers to the copying of data so that these additional copies may be restored after a data loss event. Backups differ from archives and backup systems differ from fault-tolerant systems. Backups are useful primarily for two purposes: to restore a computer to an operational state following a disaster (called disaster recovery) and to restore small numbers of files after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted.

Although modern backup solutions can offer significant recovery agility, backup as an IT process is generally less than “enough” for the data protection goals that IT is being asked to deliver. As IT is embracing snapshots, replication, archiving, and availability mechanisms to enhance business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) preparedness, it is important to realize that there is a better way than piecemealing each component, and then wondering why CapEx and OpEx are so out of line.

Organizations have gained significant benefit from virtualizing servers and storage environments, and now face the daunting task of deploying new network architectures to keep pace. Software-defined networking holds significant promise to deliver a new network architecture that is abstracted and virtualized; however, organizations would be well served to learn from previous efforts to virtualize other domains in order to avoid making the same mistakes. Riverbed and VMware joined forces to help eliminate those problems and make it easier to deploy VXLAN overlay networks in highly virtualized data centers by integrating application-aware network performance management software and vSphere 5.1
