Cloud-Native Backup and Disaster Recovery for VMware

One size does not fit all when it comes to meeting VMware-based virtual machine (VM) data protection requirements. Costs must be kept in check while shrinking recovery time and meeting recovery point objectives. IT professionals are pressured to deliver near-zero data loss and near-zero application downtime. They also need to comply with data privacy regulations such as the European Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Finally, the IT professional must develop strategies that protect against increasingly tenacious ransomware attacks.

Cost Efficient Backups For The Enterprise

Enterprise data is growing at a phenomenal rate and it’s located everywhere: on endpoints, in data centers and increasingly in the cloud.

If you’re about to take an analytic crack at unfiltered terabytes or even petabytes of complex, unstructured data, it can stay in a public cloud provider like Amazon Web Services, said Judith Hurwitz. The consultant and author of numerous IT books, including several in the For Dummies instructional series, said analyzing big data in the cloud often works “because you’re still in the process of separating the wheat from the chaf,” so there’s no reason for the extra security of keeping it in-house. “It has not become mission-critical at that point,” Hurwitz said.

Data Recovery Matters, Even for Noncritical Workloads

The industry regularly waxes lyrical about the value of data, but in our Voice of the Enterprise: Storage data we see that organizations have considerable expectations when it comes to how much data can be lost in an outage and how quickly data or workloads must be recovered. While there is a clear and logical hierarchy in importance between mission-critical, business-critical and noncritical applications and data, many organizations are unwilling to tolerate long periods of downtime for even noncritical data.

Disaggregation Necessary in a Complete Backup and DR Solution

Data is a vital part of an organization and business owners are finding ways to make their data more available and secure with every passing minute. Backup comes to mind talking about data protection but a complete data protection is a lot more than that.

There are a two main factors that play their part in making a backup reliable and efficient: disaggregation and disaster recovery. This article will highlight them and how they are useful for an enterprise.
