Centralized Data Management for Remote and Branch Office (Robo) Environments

Centralized Data Management for Remote and Branch Office (Robo) Environments

Cover
While remote sites proliferate, the requirements for capturing, protecting and preserving remote data have also increased. Data recovery is required not only to support day-to-day business operations, but preservation of remote site data including email and end-user files is a legal requirement for organizations large and small. But managing remote data is challenging and expensive, and places a heavy management burden on already overworked IT personnel.

A solution that has been available for some time but not often deployed, is to centralize data for management from remote offices across Wide Area Network (WAN) connections. Rather than attempting to manage data at remote sites where data management infrastructure is insufficient, centralization brings that data to datacenter locations where the infrastructure is robust. The cost savings are enormous: retiring backup equipment and service contracts from remote sites is an immediate benefit, while enabling local personnel to stay focused on their work rather than being distracted with backup typically raises productivity. The benefits to data management are similarly profound: datacenter locations more often stay current with modern data management infrastructure and can, therefore, more reliably protect, manage and preserve data and usually can also restore it faster even over remote network connections back to remote sites and systems.
