Why Actifio for Disaster Recovery
Businesses today are using data as a leverage point to increase revenue and profits. آ Improvements in data analytics now allow companies to bring innovative products and services to current and new markets, improve operations or simply making better decisions based on better information. This data is literally the heartbeat of businesses today and companies go to great lengths to protect that data from loss and or corruption.
In addition, businesses are facing a wide variety of issues by not modernizing their Backup and DR strategies.
Top Issues People Faces:
Slow Cloud Adoptionآ â€“ Cloud can be a real gamechanger when it comes to data protection and long-term retention. آ Yet, companies are trapped in traditional backup infrastructures that were never desired to embrace the cloud. آ As a result cloud usage is often limited and relied upon only as a traditional storage target which significantly reduces its value.
Long Backup Windowsآ â€“ The traditional model of full and incremental backups becomes unmanageable as data sizes grow and full backup windows extend beyond SLA requirements.
Slow Recoveriesآ â€“ While backup windows are important, it is a recovery that really matters. آ After all, if you cannot recover your backups then why have them in the first place?
Disaster Recovery Challengesآ â€“ Traditional backup and recovery methodologies create significant DR challenges due to restoration complexity and windows. آ As a result, many companies limit their focus on DR and if they do focus on it, tests are run infrequently.
Very Large Database Protectionآ â€“ All of the challenges of backup and recovery are amplified with very large databases. آ These data sets are typically critical for business operations and so the impact of lengthy backup windows and painfully slow recoveries can be significant to business operations.
