TechTarget: Hybrid cloud backup: Disk-to-disk-to-cloud backup explained

Jan 31, 2011


Disk-to-disk-to-cloud backup is gaining in popularity in both large enterprises and small businesses. Similar in concept to disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T), in disk-to-disk-to-cloud backup, users first back up their data to a disk, and then transfer it to the cloud. 

Rachel Dines, an analyst at Forrest Research stated "People seem to be a lot more comfortable with disk-to-disk-to-cloud rather than directly going to the cloud or backup-as-a-service. Our most recent data from over the summer found that 23% of companies said that they were using some form of disk-to-disk-to-cloud. And that's actually quite a bit. We also had a lot of people saying they were interested in it and investigating it. That's actually a lot further along than just pure backup-as-a-service or just disk to cloud"

Asigra is mentioned as a provider of disk-to-disk-to-tape backup along with a host of other industry leading solutions.
