D2D Data Backup & Recovery System for Small & Large Enterprises
Today’s information technology is getting sophisticated with a rapid trend of technology in all areas. There especially in industrial and automation sector comes one advancement after another. The needs for business are getting increased and becoming more and more difficult for B2B (business-to-business) enterprises to meet all the needs of their customers.
Strategic partnerships are more crucial in order to build good and strong relationships with clients and add value to cope with their needs.
For most businesses, data control such as backup and storage are critical for not forgetting security measures. Some significant concerns in data control are data security, availability, hassle free access, reliable regulatory compliances and managing data. These are constantly evolving challenges regarding data control for enterprises.
With the right service provider, you can pull away from the struggling and develop a new source of recurring revenue and profit by allowing your clients to have access to Enterprise-level data backup and recovery solutions.
In recent years, there has been a dramatic change in the data backup market. The tape drive (tape-based storage) systems have been affected by human error, lengthy backups, and uncertainty in data restore percentage. A tape drive reads and writes data on a magnetic tape. Magnetic tape data storage is used for offline, archival data storage. Tape media in general is cheap and has a long archival stability.
A tape drive provides sequential access storage, unlike a hard disk drive, which provides direct access storage. A disk drive can move to any position on the disk in a few milliseconds, but a tape drive must physically wind tape between reels to read any one particular piece of data. As a result, tape drives have very large average access times.
But out there in the market, a new system is being introduced which is called D2D (disk-to-disk) based backups. The move (transition) toward D2D comes with positive advantages. It will enable drastic shorter backup windows, significant speed of data recovery together with latest backup and recovery technologies which tape drive (tape-base storage) would never offer.
The term "disk-to-disk", or "D2D", generally refers to disk-to-disk backup. With D2D, a computer hard disk is backed up to another hard disk rather than to a tape or floppy. D2D is different from virtual tape. D2D (disk-to-disk) enables multiple backup and recovery operations to concurrently access the disk directly by using a true file system.
Typical advantages of disk-to-disk:
· Higher speed and higher capacity, relative to tape or floppy, resulting in shorter backup and recovery windows.
· Non-linear recovery of data, enabling a specific file to be restored quicker and simpler than with tape.
· Lower total cost of ownership due to increased automation and lower hardware costs.
For the right selection of data security and backup system, one must consider the following points in order to maintain developing long-term client relationship and avoid an abrupt break of B2C relationship.
· Right technology right time
· Automated data protection
· Automated data recovery
· Strategic partnership
In today’s business whether small or large, clients expect highly robust solutions when it comes to data backup and recovery that are scalable no matter the business size. The complex demand on data control systems today includes specific backup requirements and complicated network systems. Among many different data storage solutions, D2D is seemingly more reliable and many data control service providers are using it.
