To date, many enterprises have relied on backup technologies to meet archiving requirements. However, as data protection requirements become more demanding, this approach falls short. Backups must be continuous (or nearly so), creating an expensive storage capacity problem when these copies are stored on production grade (or near-production grade) storage infrastructure. Emerging data privacy requirements, such as “the right to be forgotten” stipulated by the European Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation, require more granular file access, control and oversight than is possible with typical backup jobs and technologies. Additionally, a variety of structured and unstructured data files from a range of resources, including virtual machines and cloud-delivered applications, must be protected.
HubStor’s CEO, Geoff Bourgeois, joined Storage Switzerland Senior Analyst Krista Macomber to talk about how his company is approaching this problem, positioning continuous data protection and integrated backup and archive as the foundation of a modern data management strategy. Don’t miss this chance to hear Mr. Bourgeois’ take on the state of data protection and management, where the market is heading, and how HubStor uniquely fits in.
