  • What is data protection?

    Data backups have evolved to the point that they are hardly recognizable. For many organizations, the days of producing a nightly backup to tape are over. Exponential data growth and the need for near real-time data protection have driven organizations to abandon legacy backups in favor of next generation disk-based solutions.

    This E-Book is a primer on modern data protection techniques. The first chapter focuses on the types of backup targets available today, from tape libraries and VTLs to deduplicating disk arrays, integrated backup appliances and the cloud, as well as advantages to using each type of backup target. The second chapter looks at the capabilities that backup software platforms offer today. The third chapter looks at backup challenges IT teams face, including backing up large amounts of data, mobile device backup and BYOD, virtual server backup, and slow restore times.
