  • Pros and cons of disk-to-disk backup
    folders or even complete data systems in a very short time often minutes or less In combination with products like Microsoft s Shadow Copy it can allow users to restore lost or corrupted files themselves However disk to disk systems have limitations For one thing while disk to disk is backup it is not archival storage To have a complete backup solution disk to disk needs to be combined with a more permanent storage system such as optical or tape in order to maintain multiple copies of the data taken at different points in time But the main reason more enterprises don t use disk to disk backup is cost While the near instant restore feature of an appropriately configured disk to disk system can save a lot in downtime the fact remains that it requires a lot of disk space Assuming you use the same RAID level on your production and backup arrays you need to at least double your disk capacity Maybe initial cost shouldn t be the primary consideration in these days of increasing storage overhead and spectacular downtime costs but it often is A more permanent solution is to copy the files to a removable medium such as tape or optical disk at intervals Unlike the disk images removable media are archival copies and can be stored off site for additional protection With disk to disk backup you don t have to archive everything that is backed up to tape By only saving the data that has value over time you can reduce the size of the archive About the author Rick Cook has been writing about mass storage since the days when the term meant an 80 K floppy disk The computers he learned on used ferrite cores and magnetic drums For the last 20 years he has been a freelance writer specializing in storage and other computer issues This was first published in December 2004 Dig Deeper on Disk based backup All News Problem Solve Western Digital undisputed King of disks vanquishing Seagate after Hitachi GST buy Mean time between failure vs load unload cycles How to use Symantec NetBackup OpenStorage for disk to disk backup and recovery Importer dumps tape for Acronis backup Load More View All Western Digital undisputed King of disks vanquishing Seagate after Hitachi GST buy How to use Symantec NetBackup OpenStorage for disk to disk backup and recovery Importer dumps tape for Acronis backup Law firm ditches tape for the cloud Load More View All News Mean time between failure vs load unload cycles View All Problem solve ADS BY GOOGLE Latest TechTarget resources CIO AU Security AU Data Backup Disaster Recovery SMB Storage Storage Channel Search CIO com au Internet of Things Food safety apps set to emerge Food safety could emerge as a key application for the Internet of Things in the coming months providing real time visibility in Cloud security culture a building block for today s businesses As organizations today move more data to the
