Still using tape drives? Are you sure that your online backup solution, actually has data within it? Don’t take any risks!!
Many clients have migrated from tape to dedicated appliances - why? Simple, it's faster, more effective, reliable and ensures immediate restoration of files (the Achilles heel of backups)
A proper Backup system, must be:
- Simple to manage
- Compatible with all systems (including Virtual Servers)
- Have offsite copy capability and replication
- Must use deduplication technology (doesn’t need to make multiple copies of the same data and hence saves space)
- Must include agents for all O.S’s and Virtual Machines
Fulfilling the above criteria, you will be 100 % sure that your backup system can handle any disaster like fires, elimination of files by error, works across multiple Data Centre’s, etc...
