Among the many areas of focus for organizations over the past year as they’ve adjusted to pandemic life, definitely one notable one has been data center transformation. Employees today are accessing their data in a dramatically different way than ever before – they’re working from different locations, using different devices, logging in via different apps, and so on. It stands to reason that you need a revamped strategy for managing your organization’s data – and not only that, but a new approach to disaster recovery (DR), as well.
The reality is, today’s complex IT environment has created massive vulnerabilities when it comes to data management. The average company today has hundreds and hundreds of endpoints to worry about that they didn’t a year ago – and every endpoint is a potential weakness they need to be aware of. What modern organizations need, therefore, is a centralized management console that helps protect employees’ workloads, no matter where they live.
Fortunately, that’s exactly what Veritas makes available in the form of NetBackup. With NetBackup, organizations gain access to a unified data protection platform that’s highly effective in any environment, even one that’s large-scale or complex. If you’re currently using Microsoft Azure to manage your organization’s cloud data, NetBackup gives you a foundation for universal data management, making it easy to coordinate everything from one simple console. From now on, you’ll be able to protect your users’ workloads in a hybrid model, extending the same features of an on-premises DR solution to Azure.
For many organizations, the status quo is to use tape-based processes for backing up data, which has historically been cumbersome and inefficient. It also frequently leads to data redundancy, as you don’t have clear visibility into what data you have or haven’t backed up at any given time. NetBackup eliminates this problem, giving you perfect visibility that can guide your DR strategies. Azure and Veritas together give organizations a better, faster, and more cost-effective way to manage DR – one that moves at the speed of business today.
Adopting NetBackup will have clear, measurable benefits for any organization. Look at it this way: With any DR initiative, two of the key parameters to define are your recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO). In other words, if there’s ever a disaster that strikes your data, you want to detect it and address it as quickly and effectively as possible. NetBackup has proven to do just that – it is massively scalable and proven to help organizations of all sizes meet their RPO and RTO requirements with ease. Whatever goals you’re trying to hit, NetBackup will ensure that you hit them.
