We continue our celebration of Backup Awareness Month with the third of our new video blogs. In the previous two, we covered the backup side of things with “Enabling Faster Backups” and “Backup in the Era of Big Data.” Today we begin talking about the recovery side, specifically the use of snapshot technology. In this blog I address three simple questions:
- How does snapshot technology work? A 45 second primer.
- Why haven’t snapshots taken off just yet as a data protection technique? The market view.
- How does Syncsort expand the use of snapshots? The secret sauce!
After watching the video, if you’d like further details our how Syncsort leverages NetApp snapshots, you can visit a few of my past blog posts, including “Making ‘Barry the Unruly Developer’ Happy” and “NSB as Disruptive Technology.”
Thanks for watching!
