  • Hot Spots: A new level of backup reporting
    s initial single vendor focus Aptare s StorageConsole originally concentrated on Symantec s Veritas NetBackup The company added support for TSM EMC s NetWorker and Avamar Symantec s Backup Exec and Veritas NetBackup PureDisk CommVault Simpana and Hewlett Packard Data Protector The company s partnership with Hitachi Data Systems broadens its opportunities and its new capacity management solution providing monitoring and reporting for primary storage capacity and utilisation delivers new depth to the company s StorageConsole platform Tek Tools Profiler provides more depth than any of its competitors in this category reporting on server storage application and backup components although most of its customers rely on the backup reporting module Similar to a storage resource management solution but smaller in scale Profiler is appealing to midsized organisations with a need for end to end real time and historical resource reporting Symantec with its Veritas Backup Reporter has the distinction like EMC of being a backup software provider that has a reporting solution for its systems as well as its competition Introduced last year Veritas Backup Reporter made an impressive debut with support for top tier backup apps It collects data on backup processes systems platforms and devices aggregating and storing the information in a relational database It offers hundreds of out of the box reports and a report wizard to extract and manipulate data Key features The architecture of a backup reporting app has two important components data collection and how that data is stored Backup reporting tools automatically gather data on backup operations by scanning the backup app s database and error log typically enabled by the backup ISV s APIs and oftentimes by reverse engineering A few use agents small footprint code distributed on servers or devices to collect data An agent architecture spreads the workload and operates in the background continuously or on a schedule Most products have an agentless approach eliminating the need to install and manage agents on targeted servers and devices Backup reporting vendors support a few different relational databases and nearly all rely on users to supply them i e purchase a license Aptare includes an embedded Oracle database and Tek Tools leverages open source MySQL which is reflected in the price of both vendors solutions Once data is collected the IT organisation can assess its levels of data protection Inefficiencies and bottlenecks in the backup process are more easily highlighted so organisations can understand where gaps and vulnerabilities exist Armed with better information policies can be established or improved Trending information whether analysed manually or fed into predictive analysis features allows administrators to eliminate surprises Large enterprises backup environments are almost always characterised by the operation of more than one backup app The ability to support more than one backup app and perform cross domain collection and reporting is important because it provides administrators with the ability to correlate data from the different domains in the backup environment to get a big picture view of backup operations Developing and publishing policies across

  • VMware, LeftHand offer iSCSI SAN as virtual machine
    licenses and one VSA license for 6 990 Wants VSA to support more than 2 TB of storage At least one user would like to see the VSA support more storage I d definitely like to see them expand beyond 2 TB said Pat O Day chief technology officer of IT infrastructure service provider BlueLock LLC which is planning to offer its smaller clients prepared packages of server hardware with the VSA bundles You can always set up SAN iQ on a server but some clients have older disk shelves and are looking for an economical way to turn them into an iSCSI SAN BlueLock uses the VSA to save space in its data center further compressing its iSCSI SAN environment by loading VMware and the VSA on Hewlett Packard c Class blade server chassis Using VSA this way turns HP s SB40c blades into networked storage for VMs running on direct attached server blades O Day said he s hoping to see HP break the hard coded relationships between server blades and SB40c blades in the chassis so he can also use Storage VMotion to move VSAs around O Day added The only thing I don t have with this setup right now is the ability to have the same redundancy for my storage as I do for my virtual servers Christopher Kalos network manager for medical publishing company Jobson Medical Information LLC said he recently installed a VSA on the same box as VMware hosts at a small branch office to eliminate the need for on site IT staff and tape backups We can give this environment true remote support this way he said Backups are snapshots sent through LeftHand s replication to a secondary site for disaster recovery Staff at the company s headquarters can log in and manage all the storage and server software remotely Cost and remote support were the two main factors in Kalos s decision to put in the VSA It cost us about 6 000 for the VSA and the cheapest module of LeftHand s software otherwise is still about 13 000 he said Like O Day Kalos said the single box approach cut down on the redundancy of the system If I want to do maintenance on the box I can t do it whenever I want like I can with the full LeftHand SANs where I can use the two way replication between servers and failover he said Because of the limitations of the VSA approach one analyst said it s a good idea to go with the full iSCSI SAN if possible For very small businesses and branch offices this is a very good solution said Chris Wolf of the Burton Group But if users have the resources and physical space to do a full SAN that s definitely what they should be doing Dig Deeper on iSCSI SAN storage All News Problem Solve Using Nimble Storage construction firm reconstructs storage set up Nexsan launches unified storage architecture with

  • HP exec: Storage blades may replace disk arrays in data center
    by blade servers Jim Wagstaff vice president and general manager of HP s StorageWorks Division for Asia Pacific and Japan this week told SearchStorage com au that HP had the discussion internally If you take blades to the nth degree why have an array dedicated to storage he said The blades could become the arrays and at that point you question the need for specialized engineering around storage Wagstaff feels that customers will appreciate that fact that blade arrays placing everything in a single chassis is better for manageability as well as that there is a cost advantage for a complete bladed solution According to Wagstaff HP is not yet developing such technologies but he did predict that We are going to see products over the next 18 months that have multiple terabytes in one chassis He said that such devices will not replace other types of storage arrays noting For connectivity and virtualization purposes there is a need for dedicated storage outside the chassis However he said that HP does aim to get all of our storage form factors onto a blade expanding beyond the company s current NAS blade and tape blade For the foreseeable future the company is more focused on midsized companies which it sees as the hotspot in the storage market To meet those customers demand for storage the company last week released its new StorageWorks 2000 Modular Smart Array an iSCSI and or Fibre Channel array priced from 5000 and due to on sale in March This article originally appeared on SearchStorage com au TechTarget ANZ Dig Deeper on iSCSI SAN storage All News Problem Solve Using Nimble Storage construction firm reconstructs storage set up Nexsan launches unified storage architecture with flash cache ISCSI replacing Fibre Channel as dominant storage network technology ISCSI storage gets performance makeover Load More View All Using Nimble Storage construction firm reconstructs storage set up Nexsan launches unified storage architecture with flash cache ISCSI replacing Fibre Channel as dominant storage network technology ISCSI storage gets performance makeover Load More View All News iSCSI SANs getting enterprise boost by shared storage virtual servers ISCSI for beginners iSCSI network configuration design and optimization Testing iSCSI SAN performance with Iometer Load More 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 cloud it s important to cultivate a cloud security culture and enlist a CISO a new How to do an advanced data analytics project on the cheap Delivering an advanced data analytics project to the business can cost a fortune But with some imagination CIOs can do it for Search Security com au Weigh the
