Merging Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) Processes
For years, disaster recovery (DR) and data protection practices have consisted of two different technology islands — data protection and tape backup. The processes to implement both have usually been separate and handled by different IT departments. Enterprises have attempted to merge the two, but many still use different software products and different processes for replication and tape backup. This paper describes how continuous data protection (CDP) technology can bridge various DR methodologies to help organizations overcome the challenges of tape and achieve maximum benefits from their IT investments.
