HOW TO BACKUP AND ARCHIVE LARGE VOLUMES

HPC AND BIG DATA STORAGE NEEDS ARE COVERED

  • EXPLODING BACKUP WINDOWS

    Large volumes imply that duplicating or replicating data takes time. There is often a bottle neck somewhere. Parallelizing data flow is key. ADA’s data movers can scale up to any infrastructure, matching the data’s throughput and matching the maximum available bandwidth.

  • CHOOSING STORAGES

    Disk, object storage, optical disk, tape, cloud… and any combination of these, storage media can be based on one or more storage technologies. As archiving and backup need to cope with both the budget and the performance needs, Atempo-Digital Archive offers a broad storage compatibility list with deep integration level guaranteeing the best performance. 

  • FACING PROPRIETARY BACKUP FORMATS

    With Atempo-Digital Archive you won’t have to cope with proprietary formats, only open formats are used. Maintain the original folder structure of your data, with their native format on disk, and benefit from the widely used TAR and LTFS on tape. Access to files for recovery is direct and easy. It makes it also ideal for a long term retention archive and sharing the data with third parties.

  • SPEED & SCALABILITY

    Atempo-Digital Archive is used by our customers to handle extremely large files as well as hundreds of millions of small files between Petabyte storages. Thanks to the tight integration with the storages, Atempo-Digital Archive can leverage snapshots and fastscan technologies with selected brands. The large volumes of data are transferred by scalable farms of ADA Data movers, each of which can move several Gb/s and a whole farm will deliver more throughput than most networks can handle. To increase performance, simply add a data mover. Scalability is no longer a concern. In addition, all data movements are restricted to authorized storages and are logged.

  • FACING RECOVERY

    You just lost something from a storage for which Atempo-Digital Archive had a duplicated copy. This copy is complete with all the folders and sub-folders structure. Recovery can be automated or you have the ability to browse manually the storage to get the file(s) you need. Or let’s say that you need to retrieve an archived project or folder, use metadata searches or browse and find the relevant version of your assets and restore it where you need it. 

  • INTEGRATING OBJECT STORAGE

    In the past, large volumes were often stored on tape. Now, when it comes to making full and incremental backups of large amounts of data, tape is challenged by object storage. Object Storage will be able to restore any version of a file, swiftly. Write speed is best served with the right number of Atempo-Digital Data Movers that will turn it in a performant and scalable backup solution for Big Data.
