Keeping control of and protecting data running on virtual machines in adiversified IT system is a difficult chore, to say the least. Panceteraclaims its software lowers both the complexity and cost of managing andprotecting data in virtual server environments. Virtual machines tend to multiple quickly over time--depending uponworkload needs--and are often problematic to control. Thus, anincreasing number of large enterprises are looking for more automatedhelp in this area.Server virtualization provides significant economic and flexibilitybenefits, primarily because fewer servers are needed to handle standardworkloads. However, virtualization has created new problems connectedto data storage; this includes both primary storage and backup systems.Virtual machines contain large amounts of redundant data, and mostbackup applications store this data many times over, which can lead toa huge waste of storage and server resources. This lengthens backupwindows and consumes unnecessary network bandwidth and power from thewalls.Quantum's deduplication feature will work with Pancetera's datamanagement software to save only necessary files and blocks and makethem immediately available to any user in the system when needed.Pancetera is already compatible with Quantum's DXi disk backup anddeduplication products. Quantum said it plans to further integrate thetechnology into its longer-term roadmaps for both DXi and its StorNexthigh-performance file sharing and archive products.
