Skyera, Inc. Key Developments

Skyera Partners with Seagate to Create Better Backup Solution

Skyera Inc. announced a joint collaboration with Seagate to create a comprehensive solution that overcomes the challenges of backup and restore performance typically associated with disk-based backup systems. Using a combination of Skyera skyHawk solid-state storage systems, EVault cloud storage services and Xyratex ClusterStor family of data storage solutions, the joint collaboration offloads CPU intensive tasks such as compression to storage, effectively freeing up server CPUs for faster backup and restore operations. While full restores of traditional disk-based backup systems are prohibitively time consuming, the Skyera/Seagate collaboration enables restorations of up to 8TB per hour to quickly return business operations back to a normal state. While many backup solutions leverage deduplication, this process leaves an excessive amount of pointers over time as most backup data blocks are duplicates. Similar to disk fragmentation, these pointers are located in divergent locations on disk-based systems and restore performance suffers as the process devolves into a random I/O sequence resulting in excessively long system full restores. The joint solution of Skyera skyHawk, Seagate EVault and Xyratex uses an offloading process similar to that of VMware VAAI to provide faster restores. The joint collaboration between Skyera and Seagate is available immediately.
