Assessing the TCO of Unified vs. Parallel Backup Solutions for Virtual Environments
In today’s day and age, server virtualization could almost be considered commoditized—it’s no longer an “if it will happen” but a “when.” However, with the number of virtual machines continuously on the rise and momentum shifting to private cloud architectures, IT pros have rediscovered that backup is a core challenge. Between storage sprawl and the discovery challenges of new virtual machines, virtualization does complicate traditional backup and recovery.
This white paper discusses what to look for in a virtualization protection solution and explores the features and benefits of both separate and unified solutions for protecting the virtual components of a modern infrastructure. Read on to discover the total cost of ownership of these two types of solutions and learn the ins and outs of each.
