There are different backup methods which can be used to backup the organization's application and their data. Below are the majorly used backup methods in the current IT industry. Data Backup Methods Hot Backups  In the modern IT world, almost all backups are hot backups. Hot backups are also referred as online backups. They are...
The common and widely used Backup Architecture is based on the Server-Client model. Any backup architecture is composed of the following four components. Backup Servers Backup Clients Media Servers Backup Destinations/Targets The backup server manages the backup operations and maintains the backup database, which contains information about the backup configuration and...
Just as we protect the IT physical infrastructure such as Servers, Storage Systems and network components etc, it is also important for organizations to protect the logical infrastructure such as applications and data. Typically organizations implement data protection solutions in order to protect the data from accidentally deleting files, application crashes, data corruption, and...
In traditional storage environments, a storage space request from a user is provisioned by storage administrator upon checking the availability of the storage space in the storage box zoned to the user server. If the storage space is not available in the storage system, the storage admin have to...
Traditionally in any data center, a switch or a router consists of a data plane and a control plane. The function of the data plane is to transfer the network traffic from one physical port to another port by following rules that are programmed into the component. The function...
The below diagram shows the generic architecture of a software-defined storage environment. Although the physical storage devices themselves are central to SDS, they are not a part of the SDS environment. Physical storage may be block-based, file-based, or object-based storage systems or commodity hardware.   The fundamental component of the SDS...
In a traditional data centers, there are several challenges in provisioning and managing storage in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Some key challenges the storage administrator face while provisioning storage in the traditional IT data centers are The traditional storage arrays have the intelligence tightly coupled with physical hardware...
In any enterprise data center, different storage systems (block-based, file-based, and object-based storage) are deployed to meet the needs of different applications. In many cases, this situation has been complicated by mergers and acquisitions that bring together disparate storage infrastructures.    The resulting mixture of storage systems have increased the overall...
Object based storage is a  new storage technology and designed especially for the cloud users. The capabilities or features of OSD such as multi-tenancy, scalability, geographical distribution of data, and data sharing across heterogeneous platforms or tenants while ensuring integrity of data, make it a strong option for cloud-based storage. Organizations...
Unlike SAN and NAS storage systems where data is accessed through block and file level respectively, Object based storage systems stores and retrieves any application data in the form of objects and their object ID's. Object-based storage systems has two common implementation options - software based and hardware based...
