7 Ways to Conquer Billions of NAS Files

During the ancient times of Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP), each vendor had to send your backup data in a proprietary format that locked you into that specific solution. You would also periodically have to backup the same repetitive data in full over again even if that data did not change. Many backup administrators still struggle with protecting legions of NAS data; some struggle due to limited IT budgets, and others may suffer from the comfort of familiarity. Regardless of the source of conformity, it immobilizes your critical data and prevents it from achieving the fluidity of cloud data management. Well, times have changed, and as you know, we are living in a digital world. A world where protecting petabytes of data and billions of files are commonplace, and backup administrators need to arm themselves with a simple approach to protecting NAS data. Here are seven ways to rise above the challenge of backing up billions of NAS files and how Rubrik Alta 4.1 NAS filesets are the perfect weapon for your conquest. Educate yourself on scale-out platforms. In the book The Art of War, Sun Tzu wisely pens that “the greatest victory is that which requires no battle.” In one word, this…

Universal Filesets: The Best Way to Protect Large Workloads

As data continues to grow, supporting millions of files or more creates an increasing strain on backup and recovery environments. Traditional methods of backing up large data volumes can frequently consume precious server CPU and memory to the point of degraded application performance. At the point where application owners or internal customers cannot complete critical business tasks due to performance degradation, the data protection process can cause a negative financial impact. For example, a periodic traditional full backup may run for several hours, even during your entire production window, unable to capture a few critical files out of millions on your system. You may only need to recover a single file; the traditional backup application may not have protected it due to the inefficiencies of playing catch up from traversing large datasets. Rubrik filesets deliver flexibility yet simplicity by empowering backup administrators with the granular ability to create logical sets of files and folders to include or exclude from protection. Whether you are maintaining Windows / Linux hosts or NAS shares, Rubrik filesets provide a simple and effective method to protect and recover at scale. Rubrik’s focus on incremental-forever plus universal fileset technology offers granular control, allowing a subset of…
