      DRAWBACKS OF CONVENTIONAL BACKUP AND RECOVERY
    One of the key drivers impacting backup performance is the amount of data that must be protected within the available backup window. Traditional solutions are inefficient because they repeatedly backup everything—duplicate files and sub-file data segments that exist across servers, desktops, laptops, and offices. When combined with traditional daily incremental and weekly full backups, the amount of duplicate data is staggering. The sheer amount of data that must cross already congested networks, backup servers, and infrastructure often makes meeting backup windows a significant challenge.

    Traditional solutions also increase costs because extra storage is needed to retain duplicate backup data. Often this is exacerbated by extended data retention requirements for regulatory compliance. In addition, traditional backup often involves the shipment of tapes offsite, which can result in exposure of confidential information, theft, or data loss.

      NEVER BACK UP THE SAME DATA TWICE
    EMC Avamar provides fast, efficient backup and recovery by reducing the size of backup data at the client before it is transferred across the network and stored. Avamar deduplicates backup data also globally on your servers, desktops, laptops, and offices around the world to reduce the total disk storage required by up to 95 percent. As a result, Avamar provides services to the long-term retention of backup data on disk while dramatically lowering capital expenditures and operating, including floor space, power and cooling.

    Avamar backups can be quickly recovered in a single step-eliminating the hassle of restoring full and subsequent incremental backups to reach the desired recovery point. The backup data is encrypted during transit through the network and at rest for added security.

      HIGHLY EFFICIENT DATA DEDUPLICATION
    The method for determining the segment size is a key factor in eliminating redundant data at a sub-level file. Some solutions on the market use fixed-length segments when performing deduplication. With this approach, even small changes to a dataset (eg, inserting data in the beginning of a file) can change all the following fixed-length segments in a dataset. Despite the fact that very little data has actually changed, the entire file will appear as new data to be backed-up again.

    Avamar solves this problem by examining data to determine the logical boundary points using variable-length data segments. Avamar delivers the most-efficient global, client-side data deduplication on the market-dramatically reducing the amount of data sent and stored, while eliminating backup bottlenecks and reducing backup times.
