Your data is more than a bunch of ones and zeros. It's the heart and soul of your business. Keeping it alive and constantly accessible isn't just a question of convenience – it's a question of survival. Over the years, as data has grown, storage needs have exploded. And with them, so has the risk of disaster.
Virtualisation has progressed from an emerging early adopter technology to a mainstream business necessity at a record pace. Nearly half of all small, medium and large enterprises worldwide are considering implementing some amount of virtualisation within their IT environment.
You've started virtualising your servers and are planning next steps. Your critical data and applications that used to run on 5, maybe even 10 machines now run together on a single server host. What's your tolerance for downtime? A day? An hour? How about zero? You say you don't have time right now to address backup and recovery of those VMs? Think again.
The data centre has rapidly changed over the past few years. Server virtualisaion has moved out of the confines of test and development and into mainstream computing. With that shift, a monkey wrench has been thrown into the gears of backup. The root of the problem is straightforward - backup has historically been built with a number of mechanisms that expect the server, networks and the storage medium to be physical. The physical infrastructure meant less heavily utilised hardware that had some room to spare.
