Backup = Archive: Can You Tell the Difference?
If we are to keep long term data management costs down while facilitating ease of data management, recovery, accessibility and data flexibility, then a unified data management strategy is essential. The good news is that there are a few purpose-built solutions and integrated technologies that provide these capabilities today. One thing is clear though. In order to provide the data flexibility and consolidation required for this new era, solutions need to be heterogeneous in terms of delivering storage savings.
Also, solutions that provide the flexibility to move data from backup to archive, minimize their interaction with core applications, and rationalize replicated copies to further reduce storage footprints are highly desirable.
Finally, the most sought after technologies not only unify data across all data and processing activities, but also provide consistent policy management, reporting, security, auditing and capacity planning, all ideally through a single management interface across the whole organization.
