STORAGE, BACKUP AND ARCHIVE SYSTEMS

STORAGE, BACKUP AND ARCHIVE SYSTEMS

Solutions for reliable business

In the field of infrastructure technologies, TeleGroup offers solutions for storing, backing up and archiving data through collaboration with leading international manufacturers of equipment such as EMC, IBM and HP. The amount of information that is used in modern business is every day increasing. Along with that, the requirements placed upon designers of such solutions are – access to information at all times, protecting from data loss, unauthorized access and changes. To fulfill all the above criteria one must have a strategic approach to the design and implementation of this part of the infrastructure that allows for better optimization of resources and more effective use of information. Also this eliminates the risks in the business and reduces the total cost of storage and information management.Through the implementation of such infrastructure business systems, regardless of their core business activity, gain significant advantages over its competitors.

When we talk about storage systems we mean the preservation of digital information used in daily business operations. There are a number of different technologies to store data such as NAS, DAS, SAN, CAS and others. Storage systems that can combine multiple data storage technology are called Unified Storage Systems. Following is an overview of EMC storage systems, the world leader in this field, with whome TeleGroup successfully cooperates for many years in the local market.

EMC CLARiiON AX4

This solution is designed for small and medium enterprises that preserve and store data on their servers. CLARiiON AX4 provides scalability, performance and advanced features such as managing user data. In terms of scalability it can contain up to 60 disk drives (SAS / SATA) with a total capacity of up to 120TB. Depending on the performance requirements the user can opt for a system with one or two processors, or one of two types of ports CLARiiON AX4 system:

  • Gigabitni iSCSI ports
  • 4Gb Fibre Channel ports


EMC CLARiiON AX4 has a user interface which delivers ease of installation, configuration and management - Navisphere Express. Also, this system has a so-called. Snapshot option for local data protection, and EMC PowerPath provides "load balancing" and "path failover" for high data availability.

EMC Symmetrix VMAX high-end storage

SYMETRIX VMAX family of products represents today the strongest, most reliable and most intelligent storage systems on the world market and are designed to build virtual data centers, as well as those in hybrid cloud environments. There are three series of products VMAX 40K, 20K and 10K, and are based on the so-called. Virtual Martix Architecture. Its technology systems VMAX FAST VP (Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools) automatically boosts performance and reduces costs. This is achieved by placing the active information on the flash drive, and the inactive onto SATA drives. FAST VP allows organizations to use a combination of Flash, Fibre Channel, SAS and SATA drives together in a Tier 1 environment which achieves maximum resource optimization and cost savings.Virtual Matrix Architecture, combined with the "Enginuity" functionality that allows Symmetrix VMAX family of products high scalability while at the same time provides a simple and automated execution of operations is essential to meet the demands of infrastructure both in virtual and in physical development environments. Virtual Matrix provides capacity of up to hundreds of petabytes (1015 terabytes) supporting thousands of servers and millions of IOPS operations, all possible monitored and controlled through a single screen.

EMC Infrastructure for VMware Cloud environments

The example in the figure below describes the "automated storage tiering" solution for organizations with mission-critical applications in virtualized environments VMware vSphere on EMC Symmetrix VMAX 40K storage platform.

This solution provides:

  • Easy storage management using FAST VP
  • Remote replication and high performance
  • Easy storage provisioning with EMC Unisphere tool VMAX

To protect your data from loss, damage or deletion we use backup systems. In other words, these systems allow the creation of copies of data and store them so that they can be automatically renewed if necessary.TeleGroup offers users next-generation "backup" and "recovery" solutions that include constant monitoring of the latest trends related to the increase in the volume of information and technological changes in the field of virtualization. These solutions include the transfer of the technology that is based on the use of disks and network infrastructure (disk-based and network-based).

EMC, a partner of TeleGroup, is a leading manufacturer of backup and recovery solutions that utilize disk and deduplication technology. Please find bellow the portfolio of their Backup systems.

EMC Data Domain

EMC Data Domain systems perform deduplication of data during the backup process so that the data that is stored on the disks has a reduced need for storage space.These systems offer the best protection of data integrity using multi level verification and encryption, as well as error detection and self-healing functionality and are easy to integrate with user’s existing systems.

EMC Data Domain systems use a variety of software tools to extend the functionality of the backup system and the can be used for simple data archiving through system expansion and consolidation of both types of data (backup and archive) on the same system, thus reducing the cost of the complete solution.

EMC Avamar

EMC Avamar deduplication system is done on the client side so that the amount of data decreases significantly before it is sent to the LAN or WAN. Avamar identifies duplicate data segments and sends only unique data across the network to the backup system. In this way it significantly improves the utilization of storage capacity and bandwidth.



EMC NetWorker – Unified Backup Software

EMC NetWorker Backup Software perform backup and recovery processes with a possibility of unification of the various management and backup technology - disks, replication, tape's, through a unique management interface, all in order to reduce complexity and costs. It has the ability to integrate all of aforementioned EMC backup systems, thus providing significant optimization in the process of backup and recovery..

Advantages for the users
  • Centralized control of the entire backup infrastructure across Networker console including deduplication, backup to disk, these snapshots, replication and tape
  • To protect all types of data - from critical business applications (Oracle, SAP, Microsoft) to virtual machines (VMware, HyperV)
  • Flexibility and scalability - ideal for both the small and in large data centers
  • Integration of the leading solutions for deduplication in a system in which improves performance and simplifies management



Systems for archiving store data with unchangeable content and digital information in its original form, which in the future will not change. Examples of such data are contracts, financial documents, medical records, etc.. Archiving systems must store data in an efficient and optimal manner, while at the same time satisfy all business procedures and standards for the protection and safeguarding of information.

EMC Centera

EMC Centera is an IP Network Storage platform specially designed for digital archiving of original content that is scalable. This solution guarantees the authenticity of the content, redundancy, and ease of access. The platform is completely open, compatible with all types of data and applications, and on the other hand is completely independent from the infrastructure with which it is connected. It has a WORM (Write Once Read Many times) certification, which guarantees unchangeability of the content. In other words, the original user's content cannot be deleted or changed as long as there is period with defined duration for protection of data or data sets.

EMC SourceOne

EMC SourceOne is a solution designed to archive e-mail servers, file servers, Microsoft SharePoint Servers etc. and to allow the user to comply with regulations pertaining to this type of data storage.When we talk about e-mail servers, EMC SourceOne can archive content and process with Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and SMTP mail server. Archived content is stored in so-called EMC SourceOne Native Archive.

Depending on which EMC SourceOne product is used different types of content can be processed and archived:

  • Email content can be processed using the EMC SourceOne Email Management
  • SharePoint content can be processed by adding the EMC SourceOne Microsoft's existing SharePoint Email Management environment
