An economic comparison of StorageCraft OneXafe, traditional backup software, and contemporary Scale-out Data Protection deployments.

Evaluating a Data Protection Solution? Read this TCO Analysis First.

The Evaluator Group constructed a comparative economic model that analyzes the TCO of using StorageCraft OneXafe versus a leading backup target storage system with backup software as would be used in virtual machine environments.

Many IT enterprise administrators are transforming their IT environments into cloud services delivery centers that can simultaneously support existing applications while delivering new mobile, social, and analytics applications. This transformation engenders spending on new servers, networking, and both high performance and long-term storage. As this occurs, many have decided to invest in “futureforward” technologies rather than spend more money refreshing existing ones.

While evaluating forward-looking storage technologies such as all-flash arrays, object storage, and distributed storage platforms for primary storage, IT administrators should not overlook the secondary storage environment, and in particular, their data protection storage as part of the evaluation process.

Key considerations include:

  • How can rapid technological advancement be blended non-disruptively into data protection storage?
  • What are the most cost-effective data protection platforms for today and the future as technology advances?
  • Is IT bound to repeat the same costly three- to four-year hardware refresh cycles of the past, or is there a better way to extend the useful life of the data protection infrastructure?

This paper reviews StorageCraft’ss OneXafe—a scale-out storage platform that converges all necessary hardware and software components for advanced, enterprise-grade data protection and storage solution.

In doing so, we present a total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis of OneXafe as compared to traditional data protection architectures as well as a competing scale-out data protection system.

Modern Data Protection

The acceleration in growth rates of stored data pressures enterprise storage administrators to monitor and reevaluate their data protection processes and infrastructure continually. Failure of this essential IT function can result in data loss. In this environment, data protection systems that offer sizeable single- image scale, backup and restore performance, absolute reliability, and management simplicity will be valued.
