Backup Service Level Agreements vs. Service Level Objectives

Backup vendors and integrators have long tried to get organizations to set and maintain service level agreements (SLA) for various processes in their data centers including data protection. Creating SLAs for any process is a painstaking process, for data protection it is even more so. Establishing SLAs require a never ending series of meetings and constant negotiations with stakeholders. Storage Switzerland established the Service Level Objective (SLO) driven backup process. As StorageSwiss’ founder and lead analyst, George Crump discusses in this Storage Short an SLO driven backup process allows IT to take control, and significantly improve backup success rates.
