ChalkTalk Video: When Should You Use High Availability instead of Backup?

Most data centers have some sort of backup strategy where it copies data on a periodic basis, typically once per night, to a secondary storage device and then either replicated or transported to a disaster recovery site. They count on this process to help recover from a disaster. If the disaster is local the organization may be without a particular application for a few hours. A disaster that strikes the entire data center may cause an outage lasting a number of days. For these situations organizations should look at high availability software instead of backup. In this ChalkTalk Video, Storage Switzerland and Carbonite discuss backup and high availability to help you understand the differences and assist determining which solution is best for you.

The right combination of backup and a high availability software empowers an organization to achieve organizational resilience. To learn more attend our webinar “How to Future Proof Data Protection for Organizational Resilience.”
