Reducing Backup Windows and Increasing Performance When Data Reaches
the Terabyte Range
-- Who: Mark McKinnon, Grand River Conservation Authority
-- When: Tuesday, April 22 at 2:00 p.m.
-- What: The Grand River Conservation Authority is one of the largest
watershed management agencies in Canada, managing water and natural
resources for nearly 40 municipalities and close to a million
residents. When databases reached the terabyte range, the organization
experienced difficulty meeting required 24-hour backup windows. GRCA
had been through four purchasing cycles, including a disk-to-tape
backup and a disk-to-disk-to-tape solution and still couldn't meet
designated backup windows. After calculating a deficit of over
$400,000 in productivity if one month's data was lost, they knew it
was time to solve their backup and recovery problems, leading them to
deploy a flash-optimized storage solution which allowed GRCA to reduce
RPO from 1 day to 1 hour, but also reduce backup windows, eliminate
tapes and store 6+ years of file shares.
Turning a High-wire Juggling Act into a Walk in the Park: Best
Practices for Simple, Effective Storage Management
-- Who: Lavan Jeeva, KIPP Foundation
-- When: Thursday, April 24 at 3:05 p.m.
-- What: When your responsibilities as a hands-on IT professional span
multiple layers of datacenter infrastructure and critical applications
the last thing you need is to be constantly tied up in the often
precarious act of manual storage performance, capacity and data
protection management. Storage is undoubtedly the most critical layer
of infrastructure for today's datacenter workloads. With the right
storage solution, sizing, deployment, management, scaling and disaster
recovery these workloads should be easily handled.
