Overview: Over the last decade, disk storage has been used to augment traditional backup approaches, but disk solutions that are designed to replace tape libraries and media solve only a fraction of the data protection challenges faced by enterprises. Avamar backup software solves traditional backup challenges by reducing the size of backup data at the source. Avamar does this using patented global data deduplication technology that stores only a single copy of sub-file data segments across all sites and servers.
Virtual machines deployed in the datacenter must be protected against failure. Extending data protection to virtual machines is thus an important function. In the virtualized environment provided by VMware Infrastructure, there are many ways to improve the convenience and reliability of data protection, each with its particular advantages and challenges. EMC Avamar is a data-protection solution for virtual infrastructure that uses unique deduplication technology to back up virtual machines efficiently without overly taxing the infrastructure.
