As we all know, data today is much more valuable than what oil was in the 80's. Although backup and disaster recovery sounds simple, executing them the right way requires expertise to add proper governance, security, compression, tagging, referential ability, data integrity, deduplication, versioning, and most importantly an automated mechanism to restore the required data set in event of disasters. On top of these, the key factor that often comes as a challenge while backing up or restoring large data volumes is the bandwidth bottleneck. Vast Edge resolves most of these challenges with embedded features to provide enterprise-grade and simple to use multi-cloud backup tools. These simple to use tools empower you to recover your data in event of data loss or in situations where your data has been corrupted or infected by malware
Tagging to categorize and version data has become increasingly important and helps reduce risk and efforts required while restoring. As an example, tagging metadata would include app name, date and time, data type - production/dev/test, OS/Web/DB versions, instance names, and incremental/complete data sets. Vast Edge has embedded several of these key features to provide enterprise-grade and simple to use backup tools.
Here are some research statistics published by Gartner
- By 2020, 30% of organizations will leverage backup for more than just operational recovery (e.g., disaster recovery, test/development, DevOps, etc.), up from less than 10% at the beginning of 2016.
- By 2020, over 40% of organizations will supplant long-term backup with archiving systems - up from 20% in 2015
- By 2020, 10% of storage systems will be self-protecting, obviating the need for backup applications, up from less than 2% today.
- By 2019, 30% of midsize organizations will leverage public cloud IaaS for backup, up from 5% today
