Rethinking Backup and Recovery: Business Continuity in the Datacenter and Beyond

Backing up data is fairly straightforward. Restoring that data when you need it is difficult.

From desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones to the multitude of devices in the Internet of Things, the number and variety of data-generating endpoints continues to increase. Enterprises have spent substantial financial and intellectual capital incorporating these new sources of data into their backup plans, and are now beginning to tackle the issue of backing up cloud-based applications.

Unfortunately, this piecemeal planning can lead to siloed data backups, full of redundancies and lacking the context necessary surrounding business processes that bridge multiple applications and devices. As a result, Business Continuity (BC) can suffer, raising costs, rendering your employees less productive, and increasing the risk of violating compliance standards.

This Webinar will address the changing rules of backup in modern BC, discuss common points of failure and how to avoid them, and outline steps to create a seamless, enterprise-wide BC system that meets performance requirements at the lowest possible cost.
