In an age increasingly fuelled by data, it’s no longer
enough to focus exclusively on backing up data. Today,
it’s all about recovery.
An IT leader should consider 4 key important factors
when updating or overhauling a data recovery strategy.
4 Keys of a Robust Data Recovery Strategy
Affordability Reliability Manageability Security
Running regular recovery drills and simulations is
essential to know what would happen if and when a
data loss event occurs. Additionally, file validation and
healing ensures that data is always recoverable in
case of a disaster.

Organizations should strive for a “single pane of glass”
approach to managing data backup and recovery, so
administrators can monitor infrastructure, activity,
system health, capacity and license usage on a single
software platform, without having to check multiple tools

Ensure the backup platform is FIPS 140-2
certified, your service provider protects data
with an appropriate amount of infrastructure
redundancy, and multiple data centers are in
geographically diverse locations.

IT organizations must balance the need to
meet compliance and business
requirements of protecting growing
volumes of enterprise data with the
expense of managing it all.
