Cloud Infographic: Evolution Of The Backup

Cloud Infographic: Evolution Of The Backup

Even though cloud backup solutions have matured a lot over the past ten years, many enterprises are still in the storage-tape era. Although discs and optical drives were supposed to kill them in the 1990s, tapes have hung on. While consumers have waved goodbye to their VHS and audio cassettes, many enterprises still find tapes indispensable. The primary advantages of tape include low cost, no bandwidth requirements and ease of portability (can you move 100 TB across town in an hour using any other means?). However, I think the time has come to ditch the tape. Read the CloudTweaks article from 2012 called: 7 Reasons Why You Need To Move From Archival Tapes To Cloud Backup Solutions for more information on why.

Included is an infographic provided courtesy of Axcient which illustrates the evolution of the backup.
