Getting a Handle on Cloud Backup
Cloud backup is rapidly becoming an attractive option for companies seeking improved data protection at lower cost and with fewer hardware management headaches than traditional on-premises solutions.
Just consider the results from a recent Taneja Group survey, in which 29 percent of storage professionals said they had already implemented data protection using public cloud infrastructure – and another 47 percent indicated they would move to cloud backup over the next 24 months.
Like any IT initiative, successful cloud backup and storage projects call for careful planning, vendor evaluation, and project execution. To help Enterprise Storage Forum's readers get a head start on this important initiative, we've assembled a Cloud Backup Project Center on the website of our sister publication, InfoStor. The page features a wealth of research and information to assist with every phase of a cloud backup project.
The site has been designed to help storage professionals determine whether cloud backup is the right fit for their businesses, identify the major vendors, and evaluate the specific solutions that are available in the marketplace today. All the documents and downloads in the Cloud Backup Project Center are provided free of charge, requiring only a simple registration to access.
