DATA REPLICATION

Continuous replication of business data

CONTINUOUS REPLICATION FOR CONTINUOUS BUSINESS

 
When you store highly critical data on your local site, traditional data recovery methods such as tape backup do not provide adequate protection from outages or major disasters that may affect that specific location. To ensure continuity, data must be backed up as it is being created or changed, so that business operations can be re-established to a point immediately before any interruption.

Data Replication - on-site and off-site data protection

InTechnology can provide a turnkey solution for a local SAN / NAS storage, which provides a local-site data security solution, but only for equipment failure. Should you wish to secure data against an environmental problem, such as a flood, fire or a chemical leakage, then you will need some means of storing data off site and a means to recover it. InTechnology, in conjunction with a choice of enterprise class storage solutions, provides the ultimate data storage solution.
 

The cost-effective way to keep your backup up-to-date

The ability to perform asynchronous data backup is already embedded in the storage technology. The challenge for any business is to justify the costs for a disaster recovery site with the attendant investment in telecoms links, people and processes to support a fully blown off-site and managed data replication solution.

InTechnology can offer you continuous data replication and an optional suite of business continuity services with access to remote facilities - all at an affordable cost. The solution is built around our cost-effective high-bandwidth, high availability national IP network, our outstanding data centre facilities and proven storage expertise. A vital step towards effective business continuity.

The InTechnology managed Data Replication service provides you with an affordable way to cope with the demands of storing, managing and recovering business-critical data within a timescale that meets the requirements your business. By enabling quick recovery from IT infrastructure failures, outages or site disasters, you will have established a vital building block to achieving business protection.
 

Our data deduplication service - backed by industry-leading hardware

InTechnology's Managed Data Replication Service uses a choice of backend storage.
NetApp Logo
Advanced Single Instance Storage (A-SIS) deduplication affords users with a range of benefits, including granularity, performance improvements and resilience. We partner with NetApp, industry-leaders in data storage since 1992, who pioneered A-SIS deduplication as the first deduplication product to be adopted across a broad range of applications, from data backup, to data archival and primary data.

EMC Logo
InTechnology employs the use of the EMC VNX's Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST) technology to provide exceptional performance whilst not sacrificing storage to purely meet IOPS requirements. FAST maximises utilisation of SAS drive capacity for high IOPS workloads and maximises utilisation of slower drives for capacity intensive applications. The net effect of FAST is to reduce reliance on the number of disk spindles to accelerate performance therefore significantly improving storage efficiency.

In order to further improve storage efficiency InTechnology employs storage level compression and single-instance deduplication. By employing both compression and deduplication on the File Storage Pool, InTechnology typically sees up to 80% savings across media, office, virtual disk and text files.

Enabling data backup, replication and recovery by implementing a mixture of traditional snapshot technology for File storage and EMC's RecoverPoint continuous data protection/continuous remote replication for block (iSCSI) storage. File storage pools will utilize the VNX snapshot functionality. Local snapshots will then be replicated using VNX replicator between sites / data centres. Block storage will utilise EMC's Recover Point appliance to provide continuous remote replication whereby blocks are asynchronously written to either a local or remote journal. Application consistent bookmarks / snapshots will be generated in the remote copies providing point in time data recovery.

Data Deduplication


InTechnology's Managed Data Replication Service uses backend storage from NetApp, a leader in data storage efficiency since 1992, who has established A-SIS deduplication as the first deduplication product to be used broadly across many applications, including data backup, data archival and primary data. A-SIS (Advanced Single Instance Storage) deduplication combines the benefits of granularity, performance, and resiliency to provide users with significant data deduplication benefits.
 

Key features of our Data Replication Service:

 
» Seamless operational efficiency
Frequently changing data, such as transactional, can be replicated continuously throughout the day using mirroring functionality. This allows you to recover data at the point of failure.
