In our previous article, we talked about how data volumes keep growing, with more applications, bigger files and 24/7 environment requiring to be backup and therefore, backup strategy requires a new and flexible approach.

Failure isn’t an option in this new normal era of connectivity and work-from-home. Accessing data from any place at any time, increases pressure on an already narrowing backup window, which cost time and money. Recovery objectives for critical application such as Oracle or SAP are more demanding, and many organizations are struggling to meet increasingly stringent service level agreements.

This selection may include the way you could reduce the need for resources, time spent on backup and recovery management or processes to centralize and automate backup management that could free up your IT team.

To avoid using multiple backup tools for remote or branch offices, physical or virtual server, onprem or cloud environments, customers should make sure that their backup software can protect whatever kind of environments they have, or may have in a future, from a centralized console so that IT staff don’t have to learn and manage multiple products.

Organizations can’t protect their data effectively with the wrong tools, and the right tools have to fit within IT’s budget. Customers need to choose an enterprise backup software that delivers the enterprise functionality they need, and stands up to all the cost constraints that IT managers face today and will face tomorrow.
