Businesses today are increasingly concerned with protecting their data. Losing key business information can hamper productivity; create application outages, project delays, diverted resources and calls to the help desk, and harm businesses. In fact, many businesses are legally required to formally deploy data protection.

When it comes to the growing volumes of data on file servers virus and data corruption is an increasing concern, so companies need better recovery point capabilities. Often times the most valuable files are what users are working on right now. Thus being able to roll back to a point in time is required rather than just going back to last night's backup. Companies need sophisticated policy-based data management that enables them to focus on data with the most business value.

Although most companies have implemented solutions for protecting the enterprise data, data residing in workstations and laptops is notoriously underprotected - even though it amounts to 60 to 70 percent of all corporate data, according to some industry experts. This is particularly true in law firms, medical practices and consulting firms, for example, where lost data can significantly impact productivity and viability.

The newest phase in the evolution of file backup is Continuous Data Protection, and that's where IBM Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files comes in. It is a real-time, continuous data protection solution for file servers and users-endpoints. Instead of waiting for a scheduled interval, Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files backs up your most important files the moment they are saved, in real time. What's more, it does this effortlessly and transparently, in some cases eliminating the backup window.

With Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files, you can specify as many as three target backup/replication areas for high-priority files, a local disk, a file server or Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliance, and an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server. These areas will capture every save of a file when it occurs to help protect against corruption, file loss or system loss.

With Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files, you help optimize recovery times for file servers and recovery point objectives (RPO). Typically a file server is backed up once a night. The degree of difference between the recoverable data and the latest version of the file can be significant if many changes are made between backups. (This degree of difference is known as the RPO.)

In contrast, an option for protecting a file is to have Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files replicate changes to files. Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files meets the definition of continuous data protection established by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA).

When a file is modified, Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files replicates the file to disk, according to the policy you set and how the solution is deployed. Consequently, users can easily restore the latest version of the file they need - helping minimize recovery times.

The result: improved backup window, backup and recovery times, and backup granularity.
