Webinar: 10x faster back-ups: Virtual Tape Libraries

Webinar_long_banner

(3 Mar, 11 am PT / 2 pm ET)

Speaker: Max Kolomyeytsev, Product Manager, StarWind Software Inc.

Tapes will never die. They are ideal for long-term vaulting and are an absolute winner in the capacity/price competition versus any disk storage.

But even being long lasting and cost-effective, tapes are considerably slower compared to even commodity hard disks. As amounts of data used by companies are constantly growing, tape backup speed becomes a major vulnerability in modern BC and DR strategies. As soon as a backup job exceeds its backup window, it starts consuming application performance during business hours. The problem is solved by rebuilding and extending the tape backup infrastructure, but it’s extremely cost-consuming. Or you can implement Virtual Tape Library to complement physical tape storage.

Join StarWind Product Manager Max Kolomyeytsev and learn how to:

–          Shrink backup window by implementing Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape strategy using fast and cost-effective SATA as a primary backup storage,

–          Keep up with regulatory requirements without disrupting IT infrastructure work

–          Replace physical tape with VTL completely
