Reduce business risk
Get cost-effective DR
Many organizations continue to depend on traditional tape technology for regular backup and recovery. But doing so can have significant business consequences, including:
High effort – Tape backup requires significant manual effort and intervention, which slows down operations and can introduce significant costs.
High cost – In addition to high operational costs, tape backup stores redundant data, which adds further capital and operational costs. IDC analysis shows an average payback of seven months for EMC next-generation disk backup solutions.
High risk – Failure to complete backups within windows introduces risk to business users and customers who depend on application availability. Also, shuttling tapes to and from off-site locations puts business-sensitive data at higher risk of being lost, stolen, or otherwise corrupted.
EMC tape replacement solutions provide faster, more reliable and cost-effective data protection for legacy and virtualized applications, which allows for the complete elimination of tape from your environment.
Our next-generation disk-based backup systems with deduplication—EMC Data Domain and EMC Avamar—reduce the amount of disk storage needed for backup by 10 to 30-times or more, making disk a cost-effective alternative to tape. These solutions allow for the elimination of tape for operational recovery and disaster recovery.
For mainframe environments, EMC offers Disk Library for mainframe, a complete mainframe virtual tape library with deduplication and end-to-end DR testing support.
