Enterprise-ready Backup for Virtual Environments driven by NetApp
While there is a plethora of backup software available to the administrator, not many are able to handle the specific needs of large-scale virtualized environments on shared storage. Data Manager is the first backup product explicitly developed for enterprise sized VMware environments driven by NetApp storage.
SNAPSHOT™ BASED BACKUP
CDM independently supports all versions of ONTAP from 7.3.3 up to
8.3 (both 7-mode and Clustered Data ONTAP). Based on NetApp
snapshot technology, CDM can backup any number of files or VMs
instantaneously. CDM does not require the installation of
additional agents nor does it utilize other VM resources. It
leverages Data ONTAP's deduplication to further increase backup
NETAPP DATA EXCHANGE PROTOCOLS
CDM supports CIFS/SMB, NFS, iSCSI, FC/FCoE, as well as NDMP,
meaning that you can immediately backup your existing data (files,
LUNs, VMs and whole vApps) with little or no changes to your
infrastructure. Due to the integrated graphical policy editor,
backup of any kind of data can be achieved in a unified and simple
CDM independently supports SnapVault, SnapMirror and OSSV (for
7-mode controllers, CDM also supports non-vFiler0 based replication
deployments). Replication relationships are managed using a
standard web interface. SnapVault and SnapMirror transfers are
automatically initiated during a CDM backup session. OSSV data can
be restored simply within the CDM web GUI.
Cleondris Data Manager supports cloning and mounting of entire VMs
or individual disks with a single mouse click. Restores from
secondary systems are carried out within minutes using FlexClone
and Storage vMotion technology.
READILY SCALABLE TO HUGE ENVIRONMENTS
CDM has been carefully designed to perform well in very large
company environments. Today, some of our customers efficiently
backup installations with dozens of NetApp controllers and
thousands of VMs. CDM knows at anytime on which primary and
secondary snapshots – or even on magnetic tape – a
backup of a VM or a vApp has been placed.
The installation of CDM is typically completed in a few minutes and
does not require the installation of additional products like DFM
or SnapManager. Furthermore CDM does not require any plugins to
vCenter or to the browser. The CDM web GUI is compatible with IE
8+, Chrome and Firefox.
VIRTUAL DATACENTER SUPPORT
CDM fully supports NetApp MultiStore and allows users to work with
vFilers and Storage Virtual Machines (SVMs). It can manage
replication relationships between individual vFilers. CDM also
integrates with VMware� vCloud Director for private and public
cloud deployments with multi-tenancy requirements.
CDM allows users to browse with ease and copy files residing on
NetApp volumes – it can even browse files within virtual
disks in NTFS or LVM/EXT3/4 format. The CDM file browser
additionally supports time-travel functions to allow for comparison
of individual snapshots.
