This paper explores the complexities and challenges of today’s typical data protection and recovery environment, as well as the risks and costs that are increasingly associated with attempting to deal with these complexities and challenges. Read more about an alternative approach to data protection and recovery that can help reduce the complexity, risks and costs.
In this IDC whitepaper, we look at an overview of the forces driving change within today's IT organisations and datacentres and specifically how backup and recovery can enable or hinder broader IT infrastructure and business transformation. Download now.
This document analyses some of the key trends, perceptions, and actions that IT organisations are undertaking as they seek to cost-effectively store data to support business requirements while also complying with rapidly changing regulations. For this study, Forrester has surveyed 550 respondents across 11 countries in AP, including 50 in Australia and 30 in New Zealand, and conducted in-depth interviews with a mix of senior IT and business decision-makers who have deep knowledge of their organisation’s IT operations.

This whitepaper explores the business challenges driving the need to move beyond traditional backup and
recovery practices. Today’s IT organisations must shift from an infrastructure-centric view of backup and recovery to a services-centric view, focusing on protecting mission-critical applications and databases, regardless of whether they reside in physical, virtual or cloud environments. Discover how organisations are deploying best-of-breed backup technologies, simplifying the management of heterogeneous environments, and empowering administrators to maintain the service levels the business needs.
The data protection market has changed considerably over the past decade. During this time, the market witnessed a fundamental shift away from relying solely on tape for backup and recovery to using disk-based backup solutions to address challenges including backup performance, reliability, and recovery time objectives. This paper highlights that firms evaluating next-generation data protection solutions must expect a greater degree of integration between the technology components in today's data protection path.
Backup and recovery has become fundamental part of business and an essential element of information management. Information is useless to customers, employees, or business partners can't access it when it is needed. Availability and integrity of information, of the lack of, can directly impact revenues and profits - as well as company reputations. Read more.
