With the release of PHD Virtual Backup 6.1, users have access to the most feature-rich, easy-to-use backup solution to help satisfy their business continuity needs. Designed from the ground up as an exclusively virtual solution, additional functionality includes the following:

Rollback Recovery for Immediate Data Access

With the latest PHD Virtual Backup 6.1, users can get their virtual machine back in minutes with Rollback Recovery. Instead of a lengthy, full VM restore process, you can simply roll a VM back to an earlier state by restoring only the virtual disk changes over top of the existing VM, resulting in a substantial decrease in RTO for a full VM recovery.

SEE IT IN ACTION: Get your VMs back in minutes and drastically decrease the RTO of a full VM restore. Watch Now!

PHD Instant Recovery Eliminates Downtime Permanently

PHD Instant Recovery (for VMware) is now extended to Full/Incremental backup modes to help reduce and eliminate downtime. By using the Full/Incremental backup mode, individuals are able to back up to network shares or deduplication appliances and leverage PHD Instant Recovery to drastically decrease RTO and effectively test backups.

PHD Instant Recovery allows users to make an application available as quickly as possible in the event of a failure, without the need for additional infrastructure or a lengthy restore process.

Reporting Enhancements Reduce Risk and Ensure Compliance

Many organizations are required to report on backup status and data protection risks to upper management and regulatory bodies for compliance purposes. PHD Virtual has enhanced the reporting capabilities of the VBA to meet these needs. The first enhancement allows users to track backup status more easily across the entire environment by exporting the job history as an Excel report. The second enhancement provides a simple to use inventory report that monitors data protection risk by displaying all VMs in the environment and the date of their latest available backup.

Job Copy Accelerates Backup Scheduling

With the click of a button, users can now select a backup job and copy it as many times as needed, spending less time creating and scheduling backup jobs. This accelerates the backup job creation process, allowing users to scale even more easily than before.

“This latest version builds on our unique patented virtual appliance architecture to deliver our most powerful backup product to date,” said Joe Noonan, Senior Product Manager, PHD Virtual. “We have expanded the unmatched value of our award-winning data protection software for an even faster and ‘set it and forget it’ solution for the virtual environment – something our users demand.”

Like its predecessor, PHD Virtual Backup 6.1 provides customers with the scalability and flexibility they need and makes the backup process easier to manage and more efficient, while also providing fully recoverable data at a moment’s notice.

“PHD Virtual continues to take the pain out of virtual machine backup and recovery. Its new rollback recovery delivers the type of instantaneous recoveries that users increasingly need to provide in their virtualized environments,” said Jerome Wendt, DCIG Lead Analyst and President. “This new functionality, coupled with its enhanced reporting capabilities and more flexible backup job scheduling features, puts organizations on a path to more confidently protect their growing virtualized infrastructure.”

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.
In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Hinkle, Senior Director, Open Source Solutions at Citrix Systems Inc., will provide overview of the open source software that can be used to deploy and manage a cloud computing environment.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
