  • Are application-specific backup tools worth it?
    use than a handful of devices He also contends that just as a single remote is better suited to the modern lounge room a single backup suite is better equipped to the modern enterprise A vendor who backs up one application and one only will always say they do it better But I think the bigger challenge is managing the whole environment when tools like VMware have turned things on their heads In the old days you knew where an application sat Now you do not know which server the application is on or where it stores data EMC s backup products he says automatically track how virtualisation affects an application and its data and protects them under all circumstances a considerable advantage compared to specialist tools The products also have modules tuned to subtleties and peculiarities of different software giving them the advantage of specialist tools without the drawback of creating complexity NetApp has a different take on the problem advocating like EMC that its application specific modules can rival specialist tools efficiency The company goes further by also calling for application specific user driven restore tools to be added to the backup equation Self service restore is on the way says the company s Roger Mannett If you can give people a web based interface to do their own restore it takes pressure off the enterprise team NetApp says its snapshot technology makes this kind of backup and restore service possible and points out they are unlikely to be available in application specific software making the latter s addition potentially even more burdensome for administrators Symantec s Ward has another reason application specific backup tools may offer less value than users first imagine An application specific backup needs to make two backups one for granular backups for inboxes or database rows and then a full application backup he says We have been in the business so long that we can do them both with one backup Claims and more claims And what of specialist vendors claims that they possess unique insights into the software they specialise in backing up Enterprise backup vendors dispute the extent of the expertise behind those claims and say their own efforts to understand the backup needs of different applications matches or exceeds those made by specialists CommVault for example disputes Avepoint s claim to be the first vendor capable of file level restore for SharePoint We maintain tight relationships with vendors who develop and deliver the application says the company s Paul McClure We certify ourselves against the applications and in terms of the skills base in our organisation we have dedicated resources that focus on the products we back up McClure adds that in his opinion understanding an application s structure is only one important piece in delivering robust backup We find from our professional services engineers that it is more important to have an understanding of the operating system and the application and not just an understanding of backup Symantec s
