  • yottabyte (YB)

    A yottabyte is a measure of theoretical storage capacity and is 2 to the 80th power bytes, or, in decimal, approximately 1,000 zettabytes, a trillion terabytes or a million trillion megabytes.

  • data deduplication

    Deduplication retains one unique data instance to reduce storage and bandwidth consumed by remote backups, replication and disaster recovery.

  • byte

    In most computer systems, a byte is a unit of data that is eight binary digits long. Bytes are often used to represent a character such as a letter, number or typographic symbol.

  • Secure Digital card (SD card)

    SD cards use flash memory to provide nonvolatile storage. They are more rugged than traditional storage media and are used in more portable storage media.

  • data storage

    In a computer, storage is the place where data is held in an electromagnetic or optical form for access by a computer processor. 

  • cold backup (offline backup)

    Cold backups are ideal for disaster recovery because they protect important data. But the process requires downtime, so it should be conducted during quiet periods. 

  • mirror site

    A mirrored site is a website or set of files on a server that has been copied to another server so that the site or files are available from more than one place. 

  • flash memory card

    Flash storage memory cards use nonvolatile semiconductor memory to store pictures, audio and video data on portable and remote devices. 

  • backup storage device

    A data storage device for backup makes copies of data actively in use. Should the storage medium fail, the original data is recovered from copies on the backup hardware. 

  • storage snapshot

    A storage snapshot is a set of reference markers for data at a particular point in time.

  • Disaster Recovery Planning Podcasts

    Setting up a good DR plan is not easy and can be a big drain on resources, time and money. Since setting up a plan is generally perceived as a preventative measure, with little inherent business associated with the process, it can be overlooked by ma...
