Data Protection Solution

Protecting and ensuring data recoverability across today’s diverse and distributed enterprises can be complex and costly, and often involves deploying numerous nonintegrated point solutions from several vendors to meet a wide range of application service levels. However, this proliferation of data protection and recovery solutions can introduce its own risks to the organization as the procurement; licensing and ongoing management of different systems becomes increasingly complex and disjointed.

We have identified the following key shifts that drive today’s reality.

  • Most organizations are facing an explosion of data.
  • Today’s enterprises are often diverse and distributed, and include multivendor solutions.
  • This proliferation of data protection and recovery solutions can introduce risks.

This new reality brings with it new challenges.

  • Digitized information can be deleted, stolen or simply misplaced among volumes of less useful data.
  • Managing the rapid growth in data requires a more sophisticated storage management solution.
  • Protecting and ensuring data recoverability often involves deploying numerous nonintegrated point solutions from multiple vendors to meet a wide range of application service levels.
