TL-302: Wide Area Storage Networking: Server Consolidation and Data Protection Over the WAN
Abstract
Storage management over the WAN?!?!

Are you kidding?

Bandwidth is too expensive. WAN latency kills the applications. SAN replication and remote backup are too expensive!

That was yesterday. This is today. New technologies have emerged to address all of these challenges and they are not as expensive as you might guess. Wouldn't it be nice if the Exchange servers were replicated to another site and could take over automatically if the main servers were compromised? What about SQL, Oracle, and file servers?

How about backups? Wouldn't it be great if the backup system could be replicated off site, eliminating the liability of tapes falling into the wrong hands or just avoiding the costs and hassles of tape backup? What about sharing files over the WAN without a performance compromise. It might sound impossible, but other organizations are successfully doing it today.

Traditional storage applications (file sharing, email serving, backup systems, etc.) tend to buckle under the bandwidth and latency constraints of the WAN, but new technologies address these shortcomings and allow storage to flow across the WAN in ways you could never imagine.

This lecture explores the latest technologies and solutions for managing storage and protecting data across wide area networks.
Topics Include
  • A comparison of data replication technologies

  • Remote hot sites for Exchange, SQL, Oracle, file servers

  • Backup and restore for mobile users

  • WAN consolidation of email servers

  • WAN acceleration

  • WAFS - Wide Area File Services
Intended Audience
System and network administrators and IT managers with hands-on experience with servers, networking, and storage devices.

This material is suitable for LAN/WAN professionals as well as application managers and storage administrators.
