Protecting critical data is a challenge for organizations of all sizes. According to the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), the amount of data requiring protection continues to grow at approximately 60 percent per year. Traditional backup solutions store data repeatedly, expanding total storage under management by five to 10 times. Customers need solutions to help manage the information explosion. In addition, government regulations and requests for legal discovery strain the resources and capabilities of traditional data protection solutions. Failure to comply or provide information in a timely fashion can result in significant costs and penalties. Furthermore, recent legislation has exposed the risk of shipping tapes—either encrypted or unencrypted—as one of the greatest security concerns in today’s IT infrastructure. This session will elaborate on how de-duplication technologies help in achieving lower costs, improving efficiencies, improving protection and simplifying management.
