SAN SnapShot Backup v3.0 for VMWare

SnapShot Backup for VMWare is the New Generation of Backup for VMWare. It reduces operational costs, simplifies backup architecture and reduces backup impact by integrating VMWare backup with multi-vendor SAN arrays into single solution.

SnapShot Backup for VMWare eliminates the need for media/proxy servers, reading/copying of data, backup windows, and vStorage/VCB snapshot based backup.

Ivan Tsarynny, Ardeo Logic’s President and CEO explains: “Data Backup is often a huge struggle for businesses of all sizes. Backup is a complex ecosystem of infinitely growing amount of data, servers, disk/tape systems and networks. Most firms have difficulty completing backups in the backup window, and a large number of restores fail.

“The most common challenges for ‘data read & copy’ based backups are:

Failed backups
Failed Restores
Expensive Infrastructure: Media servers, network and disk storage.

“Our clients asked for a new solution that eliminates performance impacts, complexity, and overhead costs inherent by the traditional approaches.

“Commonsense solution is simple:

Safe, Instant and Zero Impact backup that keeps your business running 24x7x365
Restore of individual files, guest VM and entire datacenters in seconds
Media server-less backup process that eliminates data transfer, network impact and storage duplication.

“Imagine a day when your data is backed up by SAN snapshots. Your data is safe 24/7/365, is never copied through media servers, and can be restored in seconds. Restore requests for individual files, VM servers and entire ESX hosts are done in seconds, directly from SAN snapshots and replicas. You have piece of mind that your data is safe and you know that you lowered your total backup costs by approximately 90%.

“Ask yourself if it’s something you would enjoy?”
