Understanding Your Data Protection ROI for Dummies
Why production upgrade needs modern protection
Nothing slows down new production deployments more than discovering your modernized production is moving you from well-protected to unprotected (or unrecoverable):
- When you embrace converged or hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), legacy virtualization backups are inadequate.
- When you modernize your storage platforms, having separate mechanisms for backups vs. snapshots vs. replication won’t work.
- When you move from on-premises Exchange servers to Office 365 servers, most back-up solutions cannot follow
You won’t meet your SLAs with legacy backup
SLAs (Service level Agreements) require the unified power of backups, snapshots, replicas and systems monitoring. While traditional restore capabilities are delivered in hours or days, modern SLAs are measured in minutes. To meet Availability requirements, businesses of all sizes require Modern Data Protection solutions combined with proven enterprise experience.
4 out of 5 organizations have an Availability Gap, meaning that IT systems won’t recover as quick as business leaders need.
IT leaders need more
Only 15% of IT leaders say they are very satisfied with their teams’ ability to recover data. For the other 6 out of 7 organizations, IT professionals know that there must be a better way.
Cloud needs backup too
IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) as well as, SaaS (Software as a Service) still need back up, just like on-premises physical and virtual servers.
Backup isn’t enough
Organizations can’t wait for restores before their teams can start to recover. Instead, organizations should be leveraging from an orchestrated combination of snapshots, replicas, and backups.
Technical, operational and financial stakeholders need to work together
Too often, IT professionals are thinking strictly in RTO/RPO (Recovery Time Objective/Recovery Point Objective) terms, while operations struggles with SLAs, BIAs (Business Impact Analyses) and RAs (Risk Assessments), and financial folks are just looking at TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and ROI (Return on Investment). To help with that, Veeam commissioned a Dummies book that translates between the three languages to help calculate the real cost of downtime.
