Forrester discusses virtual server protection best practices at HP INFORM webinar next week
The increased flexibility and cost savings delivered through server virtualization have been a boon to organizations, but has created issues for backup and recovery. In some environments, virtual server backup still places a performance load on physical servers. Virtual server-specific backup products have emerged, creating additional load for IT staff if they are required to learn and manage new tools. Many organizations are experiencing virtual machine sprawl as the creation and movement of virtual machines has become increasingly simple. This could leave data unprotected, and creates challenges for IT staff as they attempt to manage the growth of virtual environments while maintaining recovery time and point objectives. These and other challenges create inhibitors to additional server virtualization, especially for mission-critical applications. Join Forrester Research analyst Rachel Dines as she discusses best practices for protecting virtual servers into today's enterprise organizations.
