‘The backup dilemma’: free white paper download a million hours of IT downtime and as a consequence – 17 billion revenue loss per year, in Europe alone! These figures show: backup and restore are still extremely current topics and require highest attention as well as careful planning and design. The matrix backup experts explain technology AG successful design of backup and restore solutions, what challenges face companies in the area of backup and restore today and how these problems sensibly and intelligently can be solved in their newly released white paper the backup dilemma. The dilemma: While the currently available storage solutions in terms of storage capacity and functionality adapted to the rapidly growing data volumes, the backup infrastructure with this development could not keep pace. Thus, the ratio of the volume of data transfer speed is today much worse than it was ten years ago. In the consequence This means: significantly increase restore times and circumstances so high IT downtime costs. Experts recommend smart solutions using intelligent storage solutions that significantly facilitate the Administration and delivery of large amounts of data makes the most sense here.
In addition, the experts recommend the matrix to use techniques to reduce system failures and complete data loss, such as the creation of RAID boards associations or mirroring of data to a third location. Situations that require a complete restore, can be avoided from the outset. What remains is the problem of long waiting times due to the read speed of the backup medium. Really effective to reduce the restore time, wider-ranging, intelligent concepts are needed, which take into account the given business requirements, work processes and organizational structures and include a powerful infrastructure, which can rely on a fully redundant, asynchronous data pool in case of emergency. Support from external specialists to design of a customized backup environment is advisable to external consultants to create a detailed needs analysis, as well as identify vulnerabilities and cost drivers. How such an analysis in particular has to look, and what approach to the design of backup and restore environments in which size is most target leading, explains technology AG also in the current white paper of the matrix.
