Compared to a competitive solution using the NBD VADP transport mode, Transparent Snapshots with Dell PowerProtect Data Manager saved time backing up and recovering VMs.
An unexpected interruption of service can be catastrophic for a business, resulting in lost revenue and frustrated customers. In the event of a disaster, organizations need a high-performing backup and recovery solution to help them rebound fast.
Principled Technologies (PT) ran an incremental backup scenario and a restore scenario on two data protection solutions:
· Dell PowerProtect Data Manager with Transparent Snapshots.
· A similarly sized solution from a key competitor (“Vendor X”) using their management software and the VMware vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) network block device (NBD) transport mode.
According to the test report, “We found that Transparent Snapshots with PowerProtect Data Manager backed up and restored virtual machines (VMs) in less time than the Vendor X solution with NBD.”
