        Impact of Backup on Server Performance
• Uses Asynchronous Replication
• Only Reads Deltas (changed data) from Disks
• Replication Does Not Require SAN
• Can Backup Any Data on Directly Attached Storage or
  Including: SATA, RAID, SCSI, ISCSI, SAS, etc

• Stores Data To Disk
• User Scheduled Backups
  E.g. Every 15 minutes, Every Hour, Every Day

               “Defragment” – Wh t D     D ?
   – “Defragment” is admittedly not best name for this
   – Shrinks the On-Disk size of Disk Safe Files If it Can
   – When Shrinking it moves blocks together (inside the file)
