Harmonize The Best Capabilities Of Cloud And On-Premise Solutions

Harmonize The Best Capabilities Of Cloud And On-Premise Solutions

What distinguishes the most innovative, dynamic backup and recovery solutions from the rest of the pack? Is it the benefits that come with transitioning from tape to disk? Is it shorter backup windows and faster recovery times? Is it the confidence that no matter where data is stored, it is totally secure and can be recovered right when you need it?  Yes, it’s all of these.

But a more elemental, evolutionary leap is underway. It’s the cloud, connected to your organization.

While the cloud may not be the ideal foundation for every organization’s data protection needs, it undeniably offers virtually every company many clear and compelling data storage advantages. Organizations that fail to put the cloud to use for backup and recovery, in the right way at the right time, are handicapping a vital business process.

Cloud-connected storage solutions use the power of the cloud selectively, enabling you to combine cloud-based and on-premise technologies in a seamless hybrid that provides exactly the right mix of security, accessibility, affordability, and performance.

This paper explores how cloud-connected offerings are taking center stage and helping customers thrive in the evolving, exciting data protection environment.

A New Paradigm for Data Protection

It’s not an easy time to be tasked with protecting corporate information. First, your organization is probably generating enormous amounts of new data—by everything from large-scale applications and heavy volumes of emails to massive files in new media formats. At the same time, user demands and service-level expectations continue to grow. And to intensify matters, IT operating environments are becoming more complex; they commonly comprise multiple sites around the world—each running its own unique blend of hardware, applications, and databases, as well as distinct business processes.

Despite facing these challenges, many management teams are reluctant to invest in the very solutions that could better manage their environments. Alas, government and industry overseers aren’t sympathetic to this frugality; they continue to devise and enforce regulations mandating information integrity and access. And of course, data damaging disasters and outages are an ever-present threat.

For many years, companies have used magnetic tape to harbor their backed up information, but these legacy technologies simply can’t keep up. They lack compression and encryption, and they rely on laborious, manually intensive processes, making them slow and vulnerable. Disk-based solutions provide a much faster, more efficient, and more secure foundation for backup and recovery.

Disk-to-disk data protection is state of the art. When you pair on-premise disk-based technology with the powerful scalability and flexibility of the cloud, your organization can do even better.
