Many Challenges Threaten Your Petabyte-Scale Storage

You Need an Efficient Backup Solution for Your Large File Storages

BACKUP AND RESTORE PETABYTE-SCALE DATA VOLUMES

PETASCALE NAS & PARALLEL FILE SYSTEMS (GPFS)

Do you have billions of files sitting on scale-out NAS such as NetApp, Dell/EMC Isilon, StorNext, Qumulo? Or are you using Lustre or GPFS shared file system such as DDN GRIDScaler and IBM Spectrum Scale? Are your NDMP solutions hitting their upper limits as you reach or head towards petabyte levels? Are you looking for a powerful and reliable solution to protect your massive unstructured data sets?

Atempo delivers powerful, vendor-agnostic backup/restore solutions for petascale NAS environments.

*NOT* BACKING UP
YOUR PETABYTE-SCALE STORAGES
IS *NOT* AN OPTION

Large volumes do change the game for moving and protecting large file-based scale-out NAS and shared file systems. What if the right software could achieve it all? Deliver the performance and the scalability you need and save IT teams valuable time.

BACKUP AND RECOVER ALL TYPES OF UNSTRUCTURED FILE STORAGES

Technology is evolving fast. It is pushed by new needs for producing and consuming data: HPC & big data, IoT, machine learning, 4k video, next generation sequencing, autonomous vehicules and new standards (AWS S3, …). Are your business processes primed to manage your unstructured file storage needs?

Minimize backup windows

Daily changes on large volumes of hundreds of millions or even billions of small files means that scanning a scale-out NAS for changes can be a long and painful exercise. Atempo's Miria leverages a mix of its proprietary FastScan Technology, and the Snapshot feature available on most NAS and shared or parallel file systems to quickly collect the list of changed & new files. This ensures rapid data backup movement.

INCREMENTAL FOREVER

The standard backup approach that requires doing cycles of Full and Incremental backups does not work with petascale storage. Petascale volumes required a radical rethink to end subsequent Full backups. Atempo's response is to deploy Miria and its "Incremental Forever" approach with smart management of data versioning at backup target levels. As a result, you save considerable backup time and backup storage.

OPTIMIZED RECOVERY

No more slow recovery. Using Miria's built-in support of Atempo's Time Navigation technology makes retrieval of backed up data from any selected date and time extremely easy and efficient. To recover a few files, simply drag and drop them from target to source. To rebuild a full volume or a complete storage infrastructure, Miria has fully automated large volume DR capabilities. Prioritize which folders/volumes to recover based on your business needs.

SPEED & SCALABILITY

Large data sets are transferred by scalable farms of Atempo Data Movers, which can each move several GB/s in an highly parallelized and multi-threaded environment. A whole data-moving farm will deliver more throughput than most networks can handle. To increase performance, simply add a Data Mover. Scalability is no longer a concern.

CROSS PLATFORM RESTORE

What happens in the event of a serious incident and a full-blown DR situation? Atempo’s NAS-agnostic solutions help you weather the storm. While waiting for your petabyte storage replacement, you can restore any critical data to other available target storage available (with ACLs fully preserved). When the new storage is available, organize and prioritize data restore based on business unit, user group, or volume. Whatever you need for your business. Rebuilding your petascale NAS/GPFS storage is no longer a burden.

WIDE STORAGE TARGET CHOICE

Disk, object storage, optical disk, tape, cloud storage media, or any combination of one or more of these storage technologies.
Because backup must respect both budget and performance, Atempo offers a broad storage compatibility list with deep integration guaranteeing optimal performance.

Centralized management

Describe your infrastructure, create user and associated rights, schedule tasks and sit back and relax as backup policies are executed. Job lists provide a central overview of your backup strategy. Detailed logs and stats deliver more advanced information and performance details on demand.
