Lightboard Video: Three Reasons for Mozy Customers to Use Carbonite Server

Organizations that are using Mozy to backup their servers need to transition to Carbonite Server. In doing so, these customers will pick up three key features that bring enterprise-class data protection capabilities to the organization. In this Lightboard Video, George Crump walks through the advantages of cloud backup solutions having intelligent on-premises storage, broad platform support and push button disaster recovery.

Cloud solutions offering an on-premises component, are increasingly common but that component has to be intelligent in how it is used. The on-premises component should act more like a cache than a storage device. It should allow users, through policy, to control how much data are stored on-premises so that the organization is not overwhelmed in secondary storage capacity.

The reality is that organizations don’t face a disaster every day. Most recoveries are for a single or group of files that have been accidentally deleted or corrupted via a ransomware attack. An on-premises storage area, even with only a few days’ worth of backup data, can fulfill the most common recovery needs.

Enterprise class platform support is very unique in cloud backup solutions. Most only provide VMware and Hyper-V support. A few support Windows bare metal. Many organizations and certainly most enterprises have Linux servers as well as a variety of legacy platforms like AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, and even IBM I Series. Without broad platform support the customer is forced to either not use cloud backup for everything or use multiple backup solutions which increases complexity.

At some point, disaster will strike the organization, or the ramifications of a potential disaster are significant enough that IT needs to plan for it. Push-button recovery of mission critical systems is ideal for these situations. Recovery can occur in the cloud with minimal interaction from IT. A cloud-based recovery saves the organization from having to pay for a dedicated site or rent space at a hosting facility.
