SONICWALL CDP 2440I NTWK STOR SVR
SonicWall 2400i Continuous Data Protection Backup and Recovery
Theft, viruses, system crashes, and misplaced or stolen backup tapes are driving demand for reliable, disk-based backup solutions. In fact, business owners are estimated to spend $6.7 billion in 2010 on data protection technologies, up 30% from 2005.
SonicWALL Backup & Recovery solutions provide automatic, real-time data backup for servers, laptops and PCs. The solution backs up files first locally to ensure data can be recovered instantly from any previous point in time. It also includes hands-free, automatic offsite capabilities to protect businesses against disasters. Together, the automatic, hassle-free local and offsite capabilities solve the pains related to existing backup systems. Importantly, the CDP series of products back up only block level differences within each file, and then compresses them so the network is not impacted or compromised. Also, central management and remote administration features allow IT administrators to operate efficiently and effectively.
Tapeless, Enterprise-level Data Protection Without the Price Tag
Fast recovery time objectives and backup tape performance problems are driving demand for high-speed disk-based backup. CDP provides enterprise-class features such as continuous data protection, remote management and hands-free offsite backup - without enterprise-class cost.
SonicWALL CDP for Your Business
CDP was developed specifically with the small-to-medium business in mind - there are no tapes or disks to manage and the appliance includes simple, centralized administration. With the highest standards of reliability, data integrity and security, CDP protects your business, not just your data.
If You're Using Tape Backup
Tape backup systems are unreliable and prone to human error. Data recovery from backup tapes fail more than 50% of the time, and can be up to 400x slower than recovering data from a disk. Most taxing is the cost and effort it takes to administer tape backup systems - rotating tapes, checking them and transporting them offsite. Why use tape backup when there is CDP?
A Closer Look
- Local Continuous Data Protection. A CDP agent sits at the kernel level to intercept data between the database and disk using a file system filter driver. This allows any new or changed information on a network machine to be detected and backed up to CDP. Instead of backing up at time-based intervals, CDP provides for real-time, hands-free backup.
- Minimal CPU Usage.
The CDP agent is programmed in C++ and requires less than 2MB of memory. The agent has an undetectable impact on network machines unlike other types of solutions that impact the productivity of employees because they slow down or freeze computers.
- Open File Backup.
The CDP agent's file system filter driver enables new or changed data to be backed up while the file is open. This feature dramatically decreases the risk of data loss because information is protected as it is created instead of waiting until the file is closed and a backup cycle is initiated.
- Incremental Backup.
CDP initiates a full initial backup of marked files, and only data that has been created or modified from that point are backed up. These changes are sent to CDP and saved in a unique database created for each specific file. There is tremendous disk utilization efficiency with this feature.
- Instant Recovery and Versioning.
Drawing from the database of file changes used by the incremental backup feature allows specific versions of each file to be re-created according to previous points in time. Users are served a catalogue of previous versions and simply click on which one(s) that are to be recovered. These features empower users and save system administrators time.
- Hands-Free Offsite Backup.
An on-site CDP can be configured to send backup data to a specific offsite storage vault without any user intervention to protect data against disasters like theft and fire. You can refine offsite policies at the administrative level, enabling only certain users or certain types of files, to be migrated offsite. Setting policies ensures your offsite capacity will be used most effectively.
- The Adaptive Backup Engine.
ABE resides within CDP, enabling the solution to recognize network usage and Internet traffic patterns. Every time there is an opportunity, CDP will initiate a migration session and send encrypted data to a secure co-location facility. This network throttling feature enables the offsite portion of CDP to be non-invasive when utilized during working hours.
- Instant Recovery and Versioning.
Drawing from the database of file changes used by the incremental backup feature allows specific versions of each file to be re-created according to previous points in time. Users are served a catalog of previous versions and simply click on which one(s) that are to be recovered. These features empower users and save system administrators time and increase productivity.
- Flexible Policies.
Administrators can give users the ability to locate, view, retrieve or otherwise manipulate data based on the level of permissions they have. Policies can also be set at the file type, directory or application levels to ensure data is added (or excluded) for backup.
