ChalkTalk Video: What’s Wrong with Traditional Backup vs The Cloud?

Traditional backup consists of a backup server, which stores copies of production data in a tape library or a deduplicated disk storage appliance. Most of these legacy solutions try to extend themselves into the cloud. The problem is the backup software was created for the cloud era, and they don’t fully leverage it. In this ChalkTalk Video, Druva’s Chief Technical Architect W. Curtis Preston joins Storage Switzerland to discuss the challenges with traditional architectures cloud extensions and how a cloud-native backup solution makes more sense as a way to solve the backup nightmare.
