Data Protection Manager - From The Customer Perspective

system center data protection manager
Backup/Restore remains the single most costly IT administrative task.

The cost of managing data protection and storage is 5x - 7x the cost of purchasing the hardware. More specifically, 74% of storage costs are for management and administration, with only 12% going to hardware.

– Gartner

System Center Data Protection Manager

97% of all tape restores are single files

– Strategic Research

85% of tape restores are for data less than 30 days

– IDC

System Center Data Protection Manager

Tape Restores fail

41% - according to Yankee Group

66% - according to Strategic Research

70% - according to Promise

Due to a variety of reasons, including unreadable tape, corrupted indexes, mechanical issues with tape changer, unable to locate tape, etc

System Center Data Protection Manager
customer data protection pain points customer needs faster recovery
Customer Data Protection Pain PointsCustomer Needs: Faster Recovery
  • Recovery is unreliable and painful
    • Too slow and expensive to recover files
      • Typical recovery takes hours or days (slow, expensive)
    • Recoveries are unreliable
      • 42% of companies had failed recovery in past year
    • 50% of customers wish for online backup verification
    • Data protection is labor intensive
    • All recoveries go through the server admin
  • Solution with DPM
    • Designed for fast recovery
    • Enables a whole new recovery scenario–end users: files, Admins: servers
    • Snapshots enable multiple recovery points
    • Recoveries are assured through verification

Rapid and Reliable Recovery

customer data protection pain points customer needs eliminating backup window

Continuous and efficient protection

Customer Data Protection Pain PointsCustomer Needs: Eliminating Backup Window
  • Backup is too complex, slow, and inefficient
    • Shrinking backup window
      • Growth in data makes it too difficult and time consuming to back up
    • Backups too slow/lots of manual scheduling
    • Mandated disaster recovery plans
    • 24 hours of data loss assumed with tape
    • Tape as one size fits all (file and server recovery, offsite protection and long term archive)
    • Tape inconvenience and unreliability of is # 1 challenge
  • Solution with DPM
    • Faster and More Efficient Backup
      • Never do a full backup from a production server again
      • Avoid the shrinking backup window
customer data protection pain points customer needs simpler solution lower costs

Operational Simplicity

Customer Data Protection Pain PointsCustomer Needs: Simpler Solution, Lower costs
  • Current backup products are too complex, costly
    • Companies spend too much time and money on backup
    • Labor is the majority of backup cost
    • Branch office data protection is cumbersome
    • Massive data growth increases costs
    • Too many tapes
    • Most disk-based backup solution are cost prohibitive
  • Solution with DPM
    • Designed to reduce TCO via continuous, disk-based backup
    • Automatic protection schedules = reduce operational costs, increase efficiency
    • Allows end users to easily recover their own files
    • Usability and easier management
    • Integration into existing environment
    • Industry standard hardware and software
what does dpm do
What Does DPM Do?
  • Near continuous (hourly) protection of files
    • DPM agent on file servers
    • Byte-level changes transmitted to DPM server
  • Multiple scheduled snapshots per day
  • Easy IT or End-User restore – fast from disk

customers tell the best story
Customers Tell The Best Story…
  • Des Moines School District
    • DMPS cuts data protection costs by 94 percent
    • DPM expected to save the district $135,000 for the first year.
    • “When a user needs a file restored, they don’t ever have to file a work order or contact the Help desk. They can restore their own file instantly.”
    • The district is so pleased with DPM that it is implementing the solution in all elementary schools and eventually, in all secondary schools.
  • New York City Department of Sanitation, Bureau of Motor Equipment
    • “Ease of installation and use, handy management and reporting features, speed of recovery and cost-effectiveness of DPM blow the competition away”
    • Shrunk backup from 48 hours to 10 minutes; drastically lowered failed backup jobs and error messages across 30 file servers.
  • San Francisco School District
    • School District Adopts Backup System to Easily Restore Files, Saves $100,000.
    • “You’re saving all this staff time, training time, and monitoring time to make sure that the people are doing what they’re supposed to do. It really is a good solution for us.”
  • Microsoft Information Technology
    • The Microsoft IT Data Protection Services Group centralized the backup and restore services protecting 130 branch offices with DPM.
    • The DPM deployment will save Microsoft $2.7 million over the next two years.

  • Situation
    • Needed an alternative to tape-based solutions for providing backup and restoration services to the company's 115 branch offices.
  • DPM Solution Benefits
    • Savings of $1.4 million in the first year of deployment through not having to support a tape-based infrastructure at 115 branch offices
    • Better user experience, because restorations that formerly took hours to retrieve from tape can now be completed within seconds
    • Better process for protecting data for IT personnel and others who help ensure data availability

Case Study: Microsoft IT
  • The largest DPM Server (heaviest production load):
    • 22 production servers protected *
    • 10.2 TB total capacity
    • 7.1 TB allocated
    • 3.5 TB used

* 22:1 number is not indicative of a DPM maximum capability

  • The busiest production server - going to the DPM server
    • Average change rate of 4.91%, next highest server change rate is 0.9%
    • In an average of 2:51 hours, 5.49GB of data is synchronized to the DPM with a transfer rate between 500-600 kb/sec
    • The big news is that the DPM server is using 180GB of DPM storage to protect a 120GB production disk with a 5% change rate
    • This provides 40 replicas of protection for this server!

"After our initial investment of $1.1 million for equipment, we are saving $1.4 million in fiscal year 2006 and anticipate saving $1.4 million in fiscal year 2007,"

– Bob Davis, General Manager, Global Technology Services

This figure does not include the additional savings the team will see from reducing the personnel it now has assigned to supporting taped-based backups. "We have committed to reducing the team we use to support remote backups," says Davis. "We'll reduce the size of the vendor support team by as much as 40 percent.That doesn't include the additional savings from not having to use local resources to help manage backups. DPM enables us to run our IT operations at these remote sites on a 'lights-out' basis,completely eliminating the need for local IT staff at the branch."

  • The problem
    • Non-profit / public service = limited budget
    • IT different than core function = very limited budget
    • Minimal core function at “data center”
    • EVERYTHING is done at the remote sites (schools)
    • “The teachers can recreate a worksheet”
    • “It’s just files”
