  • 2. Business Challenge Current Challenges of Enterprise Backup Market ▶ Increased complexity of products due to vendor market consolidation. ▶ The services and engines of software is getting much heavier due to the added tons of features. It makes hard for enterprise who just want to build regular backup environment. Many are reluctant to proceed upgrade. ▶ Due to extreme complexity of the aged software, It requires customer to prepare many unwanted system configuration or changes in order for them to keep maintaining. Isn’t it something wrong? It is the customers who are allowed to request requirements to run their backup policy. Not the other way around! For example ▶ Some backup software occupying over 25% market-share requires all Windows servers to join same domain for them to construct SAN backup environment. And implementation procedures are extremely complicated since its underlying architecture was started to build before SAN era.www.virbak.com ®Enterprise Backup Can’t Get Easier VIRBAK ABIO v3.2
  • 3. Business Challenge From Storage Magazine, 2008 Given the maturity of the backup and recovery market most products are packed with features. The most common complaint we’ve observed is product complexity. From Storage Magazine, 2008 Users of the enterprise products seemed to take out some of their frustrations about complexity in the product quality section of the survey. From 2008 Gartner Report for Backup Software Market As this market matures, providing new capabilities that integrate with existing architectures becomes more difficult. Frustrated enterprises are straying from their goal of a single recovery solutionwww.virbak.com ®Enterprise Backup Can’t Get Easier VIRBAK ABIO v3.2
