- By 2020, 30% of organizations will leverage backup for more than just operational recovery (e.g., disaster recovery, test/development, DevOps, etc.), up from less than 10% at the beginning of 2016.
- By 2018, 70% of business and application owners will have more self-service control over their data protection services, up from 30% today; and by 2020, over 40% of organizations will supplant long-term backup with archiving systems — up from 20% in 2015. – Gartner.
Nearly all businesses rely on backup and recovery solutions to protect their enterprise data, whether from internal solutions or offsite vendors, as losing data may result in a number of repercussions – from furious customers, to legal disputes.
Just like having an insurance for yourself makes you stress-free for the future, having copies of data is the best way to get your business risk- free from data loss, be it from a natural disaster or a malicious hacking attempt.
What you should backup?
Backup everything that you can’t replace. Your data protection, backup and recovery solution needs to cover the complete range of data sources, file types, media storage and backup modes.
You should back up your files, databases, applications, endpoints and VMs depending upon your data type and recovery profile.
Further, you need to integrate hardware snapshots and optimize your storage with deduplication. Also, you should continually improve your backup and recovery processes so that you can recover your data rapidly and easily, whenever you need to.
Cloud based backup- Smarter way to save your enterprise data
Most of the organizations make tactical efforts to improve their backup mechanism so as to improve overall agility. Following graphic shows some necessary requirements that key decision makers seek in their data protection solution.
Traditional backups fail at fulfilling all these. Hence, there is the need of a backup solution that not only helps businesses protect their critical assets wherever they are, but also deliver cost-efficiency, minimal maintenance along with operational peace of mind.
Cloud-based data protection is quickly becoming a mainstream scenario as it offers ubiquitous access, enables flexible allocation of storage capacity to customers, compliance level security and most importantly, is metered by use. Also, it helps a business to quickly get back to normal operations by rapidly restoring files after a system failure or file loss.
Thus, with cloud backups, businesses can protect and restore their enterprise data in a hassle-free and smart way.
