Data Domain is well know as unbeatable security / performance / easy of use. Can new Data Model model - DD64400 - can add anything? Why the values of Data Domain matters? Have a look on short /detailed video! https://youtu.be/8ieVepB2kno
Detailed description of topics covered in the video: 0:05 Customer story https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=5s - customer encrypted wants to protect for future using Data Domain - New DD6400 provides security, performance, scalability
3:40 Parallel backup of all items in production environment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=220s - Virtual machines / databases - 270 streams - comparison to concert and toilet - backup environment - one of the best to perform parallelly
7:10 Data Domain speed from de-duplication https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=430s - variable length de-duplication - example with 3 Virtual Machines built from 3 blocks - few space required - new yellow block and compression required - DD6300 - compression by main processor - DD6400 - compression card that performs the compression - processor is free for replication, cleaning, etc. - blocks are smaller - better compression - faster backup / restore but also the whole data domain is faster! - all new Data Domains: DD6400 / DD6900 / DD9400 / DD990 have the compression card
10:00 Starting backups directly from Data Domain! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=600s - Instant Access - We want to restore immediately Virtual Machine - We want Data Domain to be primary storage - Can we start Virtual Machine from tape? IT would be like asking kid to empty the trash - SSD disk speed
11:50 Revolution in backup https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=710s - normally if something fails - we are offline until backup will restore data - long time - now if production fails, backup becomes the production - example with customer who was running 75 VMs directly from Data Domain - failure of firmware upgrade in disk array
16:48 Replication between Data Domains https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=1008s - whole site can be damaged - we transfer 1% of the data - we can restore 100% of data - case study - 29 locations replicated to central site - customer wants only Data Domain for Disaster Recovery base on the great experience - almost no transfer, no network usage, reliability
22:00 Retention Lock / Compliance with Veeam Backup Software https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=1320s - Veeam does not force automatically Compliance - Cyber Bunker is solution for Veeam - Lock is than based on Data Domain in Cyber Bunker - Possible to make lock on production - snapshot which is locked
26:00 Capacity / Scaling https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=1560s - DD6400 starts from 8TB net and scales up to 172TB - we can increase capacity in 4TB increments - other models starts from much bigger capacity apart from DD3300 - DD6400 - we start from 8TB and we increase capacity with just entering license - 4TB increments - increase capacity with entering licensing is possible up to 32TB - 40TB of net capacity requires adding hardware - new shelf - than we increase capacity again but adding just license - we can say DD6400 provides "capacity on demand" - ordering DD6400 we just provide net capacity with 4TB increments
29:05 Data Domain - best market de-duplication https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=1745s - small variable block with global de-duplication - it writes almost no data - if we backup guest level and image level the second backup writes almost no data -> global de-duplication - source de-duplication / Virtual Synthetic - 2-3 less space than any other competition because of global de-dup / variable & small block de-duplication
29:57 Customer story and Data Domain global de-duplication https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=1797s - 9TB VMware - first backup occupied 0.6TB (600GB) - almost nothing - 1:15 de-dup with just 1st backup - many products have issue to overcome 1:8 de-duplication with over 30 days retention - here it was just after 1st backup - Data Domain has 1:100 to 1:300 de-duplication with 30 days retention - this makes Data Domain cheap!
31:52 Compression card https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=1912s - we can even further decrease the cost! - example with VMs built from 3 blocks - if Data Domain sees a new block he must write to disk - Data Domain will compress new block further - DD6300 - lz algorithm for new blcosk - lz not very effective but very little impact on DD processor - DD6400 - compression of new blocks is made by compression card - much faster - better compression, much less space is required(gz or gzfast)
33:40 How less space DD6400 takes over DD6300? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=2020s - Migrating from DD63300 100TB to DD6400 - DD6400 will require only 80TB space - reason -> lz compression of new blocks vs gz/gzfas on DD6400 - these number are from worldwide statistics - detailed stats for files / databases - compression card is in DD6400 / DD6900 / DD9400 / DD9900
36:42 - Parameters of DD6400 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ieVepB2kno&t=2202s - part of new models family - DD6900 / DD9400 / DD9900 - DD6400 capacity from 8TB to 172TB net with increments of 4TB - capacity of other models - DD6400 uses 8TB drives - DD6400 has 270 simultaneous backups -> huge important - streams of other models - DD6400 is 2U / 3U shelf - max 2 shelves - DD6400 built in Ethernet card 10Gb -> SFP/BasetT to choose - DD6400 allows for 3 additional Ethernet cards - the same as above or 25Gb - DD6400 allows for 1 additional FC card
Millions of files? Huge number of TBs? Slow backup? Issue with restore?
There is a solution! You can backup any file share fast, secure and with easy restore! https://youtu.be/LETxuJZXnuA See summary of what PowerProtect Data Manager offers for backup of CIFS/NFS - any NAS shares!
0:50 - Why do we talk about backup of files? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=50s - we talk about CIFS/NFS that is tough to backup - no agent possible as for Windows NTFS use case - we have millions of files / hundreds of TB - backup is slow - even days - restore is slow, restore point is long time ago
3:29 - Architecture of the backup file share https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=209s - we have FULL backup by only reading what has changed since last backup - backup is huge fast because we read only delta - PPDM performs only FULL backups - though reads only delta - no incremental / differential backups - only FULLs - huge important because FULL backups provides fastest restore and possibility for granular restore
6:40 - Value https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=400s - no load of protected system / protected system does not feel the backup - no load of network - protected share can be far from media - backup is huge fast / I can perform backups frequently
10:45 - PowerProtect Data Manager demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=645s - PPDM just controls backups - does not take part in data movement - we add a new policy for CIFS backups - we choose share - we can choose synthetic full - full with reading delta
12:35 - Automated dividing for streams / slices https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=755s - dynamic slicing - every 200 GB is single stream - 3 streams for 600 GB data - every 1 million of files is single stream - 5 streams for 5 millions of slices
17:26 - This is functionality for all possible CIFS/NFS shares https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=1046s - any CIFS any NFS on whatever storage - hardware agnostics - we can enjoy huge speed - it is just software / proxy - proxy is just Virtual Machine - we can add a new proxy / VM to add streams - 24 streams per proxy
19:38 - No agent required https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=1178s - agentless 100% - we do not install anything - also on the backed up share - adding a new share - we will se no agent is required - showing how simple is adding a new share to PowerProtect Data Manager
24:17 - Self-backup infrastructure https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=1457s - demo of self-backup infrastructure - when we create policy we need to manually say which shares we want to backup - but we want that PPDM automatically add new shares connected with PPDM - showing dynamic filters live - all shares that in the name contain k8s must be automatically backed up - we see that now PPDM will backup 4 shares having k8s within name - we can also say that big shares go to one policy / small shares go to another policy - all backups from some Isilon shall go somewhere - Self backup infrastructure is available only for Unity / PowerStore / PowerScale
30:15 Restore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=1815s - we have many backups of different shares - backups of NetApp / Qnap - we can restore to the same NAS - we can restore to Linux / Windows - we can restore to any target - we do not use NDMP
32:38 Summary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETxuJZXnuA&t=1958s - Great solution that can help with time, many files, large volumes - Very cost effective - Look more closely - Future - show the numbers - I am very excited about technology - See you next time!
