2012 Predictions: Storage part two

Dec 19, 2011

Backup and data protection strategies will need to extend from the datacentre to encompass more areas.  In the view of  Eran Farajun, executive VP at Asigra, a backup specialist, “In 2012, customers will seek expanded support that allows rollback to any point across any device to meet recovery point and recovery time objectives (RPO/RTO). Protecting these devices will become an imperative for many organisations under financial and healthcare industry regulations.”

However, Farajun feels that backup will need to become a holistic and companywide methodology and less siloed. “As organisations continue to deal with the deluge of information to manage and protect, they will continue the move toward technologies that perform these processes efficiently. This includes the consolidation of disparate data protection technologies under a single management interface and solution which allow organisations to capture less, ingest less, and store less data -- reducing the amount of backup assets to buy, manage and maintain.”
