Five Keys to Scalability and Disk-Based Backup Systems
As your business grows, so does the amount of data it generates, and the amount of storage capacity needed to properly retain the data often cascades out of control. Organizations of all sizes face the dilemma of how to back up increasing amounts of data while reducing the hassles of traditional tape-based systems.
Fortunately, the cost of disk has fallen in recent years, making disk-based backup systems more affordable for companies of all sizes. More importantly, the advent of data reduction technologies such as data deduplication, have now made it possible to cost-effectively replace tape with a disk-based backup system.
This white paper explores the important issue of scalability when looking at disk-based backup systems and outlines five key questions you should ask when evaluating the scalability of any disk-based backup solution. Read on to find out how to choose the best disk-based backup for today’s IT.
