Cloud Data Protection Designed for the Modern Era
This GigaOm whitepaper explores the state of backup and disaster recovery and discusses the weakness of current solutions and the changes shaping the industry. Learn how new technologies, including cloud computing, are re-shaping the BCDR market and what the future holds.
It’s Time To Consider A New Data Protection Strategy
While natural disasters account for most news headlines, they comprise only a small percentage of IT downtime. The majority of IT outages come from accidents, sabotage, and technical failures. Additionally, most data-loss events and outages are due to the failure of single hard-disk drives, machines, or servers. These outages reinforce the critical importance of thorough disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) planning so an organization can rapidly recover from data-loss events and resume business operations as quickly as possible. This report examines the limitations of various cloud-based data-protection solutions in the market today and describes a best practice for enabling local area network (LAN)-powered and cloud-powered near- instantaneous BC by virtualizing the IT environment. Doing so creates both a local and a cloud copy of all applications and data, which allows employees to follow a data-loss event.
