  • How to choose between scale-up vs. scale-out architectures for backup and recovery

    There is a lot of discussion in the storage industry in regard to "scale-up" versus "scale-out" architectures for backup and recovery operations. More and more organizations are reducing or eliminating the use of tape by deploying disk-based appliances that use deduplication. But the architectural approach used by the appliance vendor can make a significant difference to the performance, scalability and total cost of the selected solution.

  • Riverbed Whitewater: Data deduplication for cloud storage

    Cloud storage seems like such a no-brainer for backups and disaster recovery, it's a wonder that more businesses aren't taking advantage of it. If you're concerned about cloud outages, cloud storage costs, data loss, data security, or the ability to push your nightly backup sets up the Internet straw, Riverbed Technology's Whitewater appliance may make cloud storage easier to embrace.

  • CRM backups or audit trails? Yes, please

    Like nearly any transactional system, usable CRM data backups are tricky because the data is always changing and dependent on coherency across several tables. Ideally, you'd fully quiesce the system and do a full backup every day, or enable the online backup. But with modern cloud systems and 7x24 customer access (via portals or mobile apps), you can't take the system down, and cloud vendors like SFDC don't provide a full backup more often than once a week. The situation with audit trails is different: they may reliably capture all the changes, but you may only be allowed to track a limited number of fields (the default in SFDC is 20 per object).
