How snapshot and CDP integrate with an organization's data backup strategy

Sponsored by

Technologies that have traditionally been managed separately are increasingly becoming integrated into the backup process. Two of these technologies, snapshot and continuous data protection (CDP), have been growing in popularity for a number of reasons. Snapshot and CDP have been around for years, but now they are being merged with backup software -- people may have used them in the past for various tasks as part of their data backup strategy, but they have always been managed separately. A number of backup software products now offer CDP and some have the ability to integrate with array-based snapshot technology. This handbook explores why one expert believes replication, CDP and snapshots are keys to a successful data backup strategy; how virtualization gives CDP a big boost; and the many types of snapshots available today.
