Improving data availability for mission-critical applications

Improving efficiency while removing cost, risk, and complexity from data protection.

Data availability and backup is a business issue, not an IT issue

Protecting organizational data is not a choice - it's a necessity that underpins business performance, reliability, and resiliency. In the Forester Report "The Ongoing IT Struggle: Delivering Availability 24x7x365," they talk about the increasing number of mission-critical and business-critical workloads and the demand for Always-On availability. The IT function has become evermore critical to business success as the architects of a new era of business are tasked with delivering a New Style of IT. It is increasingly apparent to CIOs and storage managers that backup and recovery processes must evolve to harmonize with this new architecture. The transformation that is already happening in many IT departments today is increasing the pressure on traditional backup architectures with wide ranging implications.
Data growth continues to be a significant challenge, but others also add pressure to the backup process. As your infrastructure fills up with data, systems slow down, expenditures on hardware and resources increase, and the ability to keep pace with service-level agreements (SLAs) diminishes the ability to meet SLAs. Maintaining service levels in the event of failure is critical, whether using midrange, high-end, or All-Flash storage. Small enterprises to global services providers have to ensure Tier-1 storage availability.
The convergence of primary storage and backup software is helping companies address more stringent services levels. Backup software can now bridge the gap between primary and secondary storage, allowing the overall solution to work in concert together vs. the siloed solutions of the past to provide a more comprehensive data protection strategy with availability for mission-critical applications. Many IT departments today are increasing the pressure on traditional backup architectures because of lack of capabilities and IT's inability to meet company demands.
