Providing Backup Software for applications and operating systems
Backup Software today has evolved to become a heterogeneous backup product able to backup Windows Servers, Linux, Apple, Unix, Virtualised Infrastructures etc. Many backup software vendors today provide a centrally managed and controlled system. This means the backup software can now execute all of the above with the minimum of user intervention.
The biggest benefit in using tape media as a backup medium is that it offers highest capacity, it's removable and offers the lowest cos per TB of any other storage media.
As tape drives get faster the need to reduce backup times and optimise the tape drive performance start to become paramount. Many backup software packages allow multiple streams of data from multiple sources to be streamed concurrently to the tape drive(s) thus ensuring the device continues to stream rather than stopping and starting (shoe shining). This causes unnecessary wear and tear on the drive mechanism which can over a prolonged period create a backup failure. Many of the software vendors today can also perform disk to disk to tape operations speeding up your backup and reducing the critical backup window. Some of the software also provides data deduplication which can reduce your backup volumes by up to 20:1.
