One of the problems created by the modern insights economy and era of strict data privacy regulations is the fact that backup data is growing even faster than production data, and that it also must be retained for longer periods of time.

The cloud presents an alluring solution, in the form of a low-cost data repository that can be scaled both easily and seamlessly as capacity requirements grow. However, storage managers should be careful to ensure that enterprise-class capabilities such as simple set up and fast restores are available.
