8 ESSENTIAL PRACTICES FOR HYPERVISOR BACKUP

Virtualization tools like Hyper-V, Nutanix, VMware and other hypervisors allow systems to overcome physical barriers between resources while optimizing server and storage utilization as well as offering increasing flexibility. But protecting the environment and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created is still too often ineffectively addressed with complex, on-premises secondary storage models that come with heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The cloud is not shackled by these limitations.

The cloud is meeting the increasing needs related to business continuity and information governance as new trends change how infrastructure resiliency and long-term retention shape the data protection landscape. Download this asset to learn 8 essential real-world practices to put in place for hypervisor backup, archival and disaster recovery (DR).

THE CLOUD-FIRST DATA PROTECTION PLAYBOOK

Transitioning data protection to the cloud isn’t easy. Simply relocating legacy backup solutions can lead to unexpected costs, incomplete data, and compromised performance. It can also make it difficult to comply with regional data privacy rules that limit how data can be copied and stored. Businesses get best results from a thoughtful cloud strategy that considers how data is stored, secured, and kept resilient. Download our playbook, providing key strategies for CIOs to consider—and pitfalls to avoid—when transitioning backups and disaster recovery to the cloud.

How To Move VMware Data Protection To The Cloud

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos.

Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability and complete protection of the data that resides within their VMware environments.

Making The Business Case For VMware Cloud Backup

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. Protecting these virtualized environments, however, as well as the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-premises secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. Managing the backup and restoration of virtual machines in a distributed environment is typically an expensive and convoluted process involving multiple staff members supporting a complex architecture. Any reduction in new hardware, software, or administrative burden, therefore, improves business agility and radically lowers overall total cost of ownership (TCO). Download our asset to learn more about how to achieve cost and time savings by managing your VMware environments from within a single, centralized console.
