In summary, traditional backup systems are being enhanced with D2D2T
systems, LAN-free backups, and specialized agents.
The drives will soon be on the market, completing the tiered D2D2T
architecture puzzle and delivering an inexpensive and highly flexible interface option for storage administrators.
Primary to secondary to long-term archival storage infrastructure, such as D2D2T
, is enabled through VTL technology and data mover functionality.
Breece Hill's acquisition of Avail Solutions gives them a strong competitive advantage in the D2D2T
and ILM space," says nationally known consultant Jon William Toigo.
Thus, within the ILM environment, we see an evolution towards D2D2T
(Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape) becoming the de facto standard.
This is commonly referred to as D2D2T
, along with two other acronyms: D2d2T
) backup has been touted recently as a "data savior," reducing the time needed to back up distributed systems--which previously required either direct-attached or large tape libraries--in today's time-compressed world.
As an example, Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape (D2D2T
) solutions can utilize the easy provisioning functions of iSCSI to optimally use storage for data disk backup to an intermediate disk.
These are sometimes referred to as D2D2T
for disk-to-disk-to-tape, D2D for disk-to-disk, or D2T for disk to tape.
The R2000 delivers the fastest, most secure way to move data from disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T
In response to customer demand, Breece Hill introduced the Information Storage and Retrieval Architecture (iStoRA), combining disk, tape, network connectivity, and management software into a physically integrated appliance-style platform for disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T
Designed specifically to address the challenges faced in the SMB market, Certance followed with an announcement in October about its CP 3100, a disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T
