Buyer’s guide to modern web-scale backup & recovery
There can be few areas of mainstream IT technology that are more important and more in need of innovation than backup and recovery. While the need to keep data and applications safe as well as ensure their fast and reliable restoration remains of critical importance, the needs for data protection have changed with the modern digital business.
Unfortunately, the truth is that backup is often treated as a burdensome overhead or a passive insurance policy rather than a source of strategic value.
Cohesity has taken a fresh look at the old problem of backup and recovery to try to bring new innovation to the secondary data space. It took a blank-sheet approach rather than an incremental one, applying Google-class design principles such as hyperconvergence, software-defined infrastructure, and web-scale to design a platform specifically optimised for secondary data operations. The result is a modern, web-scale backup and recovery solution designed for the digital challenges of today and tomorrow.
This guide is intended to provide guidance and assistance for IT professionals looking to re-evaluate their current data protection practices. In addition to describing the new hyperconverged approach, it offers education and best practices for what to look for in a modern data protection solution, a self-assessment, evaluation criteria, and questions to ask when looking at alternative approaches.
