Despite the efficiency benefits of hardware array-based snapshots, their complexities present IT with many challenges.
Snapshot-based data protection solutions were supposed to solve our backup challenges by providing faster recovery, faster capture of data, less disruption to applications, and reduced costs for non-production copies. But according to ESG research, less than a quarter of organizations’ production data is protected using storage snapshots. So, why aren’t they more widely deployed? If you’re managing snapshots manually or with ‘script-it-yourself’ solutions, there may be several reasons that they aren’t working very well. These challenges include integrating applications, OSes, and hypervisors with the storage arrays across your environment; difficulty automating protection and recovery in scripts; changes to your software and hardware environment that break scripts; a lack of visibility across your environment; and/or routine personnel issues.
Commvault IntelliSnap technology, which automates and orchestrates snapshot management and lifecycle management across multiple storage arrays using a single console, eliminates many of the scripting challenges associated with manually-managed hardware array-based snapshots, which helps you accelerate recovery and access, simplify management, minimize risk, and scale more easily.
