A 4-TIER APPROACH TO MODERN DATA PROTECTION
Data protection is changing. Today backup software can recover in-place, instantiating volumes directly on the backup storage which enables organizations to significantly reduce recovery windows. Consequently, the performance of the backup storage hardware matters more than ever. At the same time backup software can scale to manage petabytes of stored backup data, so keeping the hardware costs associated with storing this data in check is also critical. Finally, new compliance regulations mean that data within backups must meet both retention requirements and new data privacy demands. Software applications like the Veeam vailability Platform provide the capabilities for organizations to meet all of these requirements. The challenge for organizations is to update the hardware components within their data protection architecture so that the software can meet its fullest potential.
