The vulnerability of backup in a predominantly remote + cloud world
Backup is fundamental to IT, but things have changed a lot recently. The pandemic has had a key impact in this. With the rise in cloud working it also threw our ability to protect cloud data into sharp focus, and raised the importance of cloud-to-cloud backup.
In this e-guide we look at the effects of the pandemic on backup, including the increased prevalence of remote working and use of the cloud. Then we also look at where backups can go wrong, because it’s one thing to set backups jobs running but the crucial part is to know you can rely on being able to recover from them. We also focus in on the key differences between backups and snapshots, why they are not the same
and how a good data protection strategy incorporates both methods.
