Recovery is a critical concern or enterprises o all sizes, and must be addressed bothremotely (or disaster recovery) and locally (or daily recovery). Disaster recovery (DR) is rec-ognized as a need, but many enterprises cannot aord to implement it eectively in a wayto support recovery requirements. Most enterprises are already backing up locally and usingtapes or DR, but may be experiencing issues with backup windows, data loss on recovery,lengthy recovery times, or recovery reliability. Because o the heterogeneity o today’s ITenvironments, most enterprises use multiple products and tools to cover their range orecovery requirements, a situation that leads to high management complexity and cost.
Data recovery provides a strong oundation, but alone is not sucient to meetcomprehensive recovery needs. Data is only useul when applications that can usethat data are available, and application recovery must be addressed as well to ensurecontinued business operations. Application recovery generally requires humanintervention, urther adding to inrastructure complexity, cost, and recovery risk.
InMage: A Single Solution for DR, Backup, and Application Failover
InMage provides a sotware-based solution that leverages the advantages o disk-baseddata protection to eliminate backups and provide application-aware recovery that canmeet remote (DR) and/or local requirements. Using unique hybrid recovery technology,InMage captures changes to data in real time as they occur and oers fexible recoveryto any previous point in time, a eature which ensures ast, reliable recovery even whendata is corrupted. Automated recovery o application services can be congured to meeteither remote or local requirements, going above and beyond the protection oered byreplication, conventional backup, and clustering products alone.
age collects changes rom one or more serverscontinuously as they occur and sends them to alocal target called the CX. This approach allows verylarge data sets and applications to be protectedwhile requiring very little network bandwidth.From the CX, data can be replicated to a localrepository while at the same time it is replicated toa remote repository or DR purposes. As data is captured, it is labeled in such a way thatrecoveries can occur rom any previous point in time by retroactively creating the desiredrecovery point as a disk-based image, providing the maximum fexibility to select the bestrecovery point or any given scenario. N into 1 replication support oers the option oremote oce data protection congurations that minimize tape inrastructure and manualinvolvement in locations that may not have access to sophisticated backup expertise.Recoveries can occur rom either remote or local locations, and can meet very stringentRPO/RTO requirements.InMage supports a range o reliable recovery options that can be equally applied or DR,backup, and application ailover. For the astest recoveries, InMage uses AppShots, whichare application-consistent points in time that are automatically tracked based on policiesestablished by the administrator. AppShots can be read/write or read-only, virtual orphysical copies o data, depending on how they are dened when they are created. Whena recovery is required, administrators can select rom a wide range o AppShots so as topick the one which best supports optimized recovery operations (which can be dened as
