Market Report: Augmenting Data Backup and Recovery

Augmenting Data Backup and Recovery with System-level Protection

Download this white paper and learn how system-level protection can help your business keep data secure, available, and organized.

File-level recovery on its own, while an important mainstay in data protection best practices, is an incomplete strategy when it comes to meeting today’s stringent recovery time objectives (RTOs) for complete system recovery. Whether it’s a physical or virtual machine, the time necessary to “rebuild” the server stack and re-establish configuration settings can delay actual data recovery.

System-level recovery can enhance or even eliminate manual, operator-driven recovery and deliver significant benefits to IT organizations. This paper will investigate what’s at risk, where system-level recovery fits relative to current data protection approaches, the impact system-level recovery can have on IT’s ability to meet RTOs and RPOs, and the potential of system-level recovery to reduce costs.

* As shown in Figure 1, ESG research found that midmarket organizations (companies with 100 to 999 employees) cannot endure disruption for too long. More than half (52%) of midmarket companies can tolerate only one hour or less of downtime for their most mission-critical data (tier-1); nearly half (49%) can tolerate three hours or less of downtime for the next tier of mission-supporting data (tier-2); and 43% can tolerate nine hours or less for all other data (tier-3).1 That’s why considerable investments are made to protect all tiers of data: making backup copies helps to minimize a company’s risk should data be lost or corrupted.
