Cleondris Data Manager (CDM) 4.0

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.

Overview

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 efficiency.


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 way.


REPLICATION

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.


INSTANTANEOUS RESTORE

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.


MINIMAL DEPENDENCIES

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.


FILE BROWSER

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.
