George Crump of Storage Switzerland in conversation with StorageCraft
Organizations need to make sure their backup infrastructure can meet the recovery objectives of today’s biggest challenges: ransomware, rapid restoration and disasters. Businesses expect their IT teams to recover faster than ever and they need business performance to be the same during the recovery effort as it is during normal production. Meeting these new challenges and expectations requires IT to rethink the backup process.
Ransomware requires rapid, frequent backups of all types of data and that the backup software also protects itself. Rapid recovery is more than just instantiating a VM from backup storage. It requires understanding the impact on performance, as well as planning a path for migration back to production storage. Finally, there is the never-ending threat of site-wide disasters. Thanks to cyber-attacks, geographically safe areas don’t exist. All data centers must prepare for a site failure and for a rapid disaster recovery without impacting application performance.
In this webinar Storage Switzerland and StorageCraft will discuss why these are the top challenges facing the data protection architecture, why current data protection infrastructure won’t meet these challenges, and how to overcome them
