The Rising Impact of Virtualization on Data Backup and Recovery
In the course of monitoring virtualization trends, the Aberdeen Group found in a March 2011 survey that the IT community had just passed an important milestone: More than 50% of all applications are now virtualized. It's obvious where this trend is heading: Soon, we will likely be at a point where the datacenter environment is 100% virtualized.
These changes impact all supporting IT processes, including data backup and recovery.
This white paper highlights the rise of virtualization and discusses what your organization can do to adjust your data protection and recovery processes to take advantage of these major changes. We will also look at what applications have been virtualized and how the old backup and recovery tools may not be up to the challenge of supporting this new dynamic infrastructure.
