SlideShare – Four Assumptions that are killing your Backup Storage

Backup systems are coming under fire. Data explosion is certainly part of the problem, but it’s more than just a capacity issue. Backup systems are being asked to do things they were never designed for, like storing largely unchanging data for longer periods of time and being able to access and restore individual files quickly.

Companies are also running critical applications from backed up copies of production VMs, as if they were on production-class storage arrays. This assumes backup storage can provide levels of performance and reliability that many cannot. Users further assume their backup systems can expand almost without limit, simply by leveraging data reduction technologies such as deduplication. In short, users are assuming their legacy backup systems can handle a lot more than they were meant to – and it’s killing them.

All viewers of this webinar will receive a copy of Storage Switzerland’s report: “New Requirements for Enterprise Disk Backup” emailed after they sign up.
