Granular Backup Control Rules
With today’s explosive rate of data growth, IT administrators face the challenge of constantly managing and protecting large pools of information. The use of inefficient traditional backup methods further stress this situation because they are often all-or-nothing block-based backups that indiscriminately capture and store data volumes containing massive amount of nonessential files. Moreover, with IT environments constantly changing and new regulations introduced with more stringent data recovery requirements, businesses end up preserving everything, including irrelevant data, as a precautionary measure. To break free of this chronic cycle, businesses need a better and more sophisticated way of protecting only the right information.
Dell™ SonicWALL™ Continuous Data Protection (CDP) v6 empowers businesses with greater control to achieve a sustainable data reduction strategy by offering granular backup control rules to intelligently identify, capture and preserve business-relevant data, while eliminating costly storage of immaterial and outdated files.
Business-relevant backup policy.
CDP v6 allows administrators to enforce granular backup policies for specific users or groups to ensure only relevant business data is preserved. Customized rule-based policies allow administrators to define explicitly what files are included or excluded from the backup. Data de-duplication prevents backing up redundant data unnecessarily, so that organizations can back up more information using far less storage.
Granular versioning and trimming controls.
Regulatory compliance and strict Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) mandate the preservation and restoration of chronological data versioning. Granular data versions and trimming controls built into CDP v6 enable administrators to capture, catalogue and retain a wide range of chronological recovery points, and enable time- or version-based recovery.
Flexible user controls.
CDP provides users with the flexibility to create customized backup rules while ensuring compliance with a global administrator defined policy.
