When assessing backup software vendors, IT leaders must avoid being taken in by flashy new features. Backup software should really be called restore software as failure in backup is failure to meet recovery objectives. Always evaluate features in light of these objectives.
Use this research to:
•Understand new features and develop a strategy to meet new challenges to enterprise backup, such as ever-increasing backup sizes, backup of virtual infrastructures, and evolving backup architecture strategy.
•Evaluate eight different backup software vendors for best fit using Info-Tech’s Vendor Landscape.
•Use Info-Tech’s scenario analysis to shortlist vendors according to your current situation and submit an RFP to vendors, score their responses, and prepare a backup software demo script.
•Assess implementation pitfalls in light of overall data management, security, and compliance requirements.
Ensure that you make the best-fit backup software decisions for enterprise availability and restore requirements, from strategy to selection to implementation.
