You don't store music on tape, why company data? Cloud backup for UAE

Posted by Dominic Docherty   May 22, 2014 11:00:00 AM

Making the case for cloud backup UAE (BAAS UAE)

Backup is an intensive process that can put a lot of stress on infrastructure. It touches every part of the environment; from local storage on a server, through that server’s CPU and memory, down the network, past the switches and into another form of storage media.

Every stage of this process has to go right for the backup to complete successfully. Add to this the challenges around inter-compatibility between different systems and the task of managing backup can quickly become hugely time consuming. This is primarily because infrastructure is typically built it stages, over time. Investment comes incrementally, and as the business acquires different products, the idea of acquiring a single backup solution that caters to all of them can seem increasingly remote. However, newer services are getting better at offering an integrated experience; it just comes down to finding a provider with the right offering.

Is Backup Important? If so why are companies so bad at it?

Making the case for Cloud Backup UAE.

Since there has been data, we have wanted to protect it. Backup is one of the oldest IT functions around, but right now it’s struggling to keep pace with the rate at which businesses are evolving. Legacy backup solutions are failing to scale with the explosive growth in the volume and complexity of data generated by businesses today. Likewise, as environments become more virtualized and infrastructure more diffuse, the older backup methodologies and media used to protect them have become less effective.

Posted by Dominic Docherty   Mar 27, 2014 8:49:00 PM

These days companies have huge amounts of data but not necessarily huge amounts of bandwidth at their disposal.
