Today's Backup & Recovery Software Licensing—An Evolutionary Tale
The task of protecting data has undergone several disruptive technical developments over the past several years. Nightly tape backup transformed into more frequent backup to disk. Backup to disk then evolved into backup to disk with deduplication. That effort expanded to embrace backup to the cloud.
Similar evolutionary processes are evident in data protection licensing – the take of paying for protection.
Why should we pay so much for all the capacity that we back up, when what we really want to focus on is how much we will need to recover?
This exclusive white paper analyzes the eras of data protection – where we’ve come from to where we are today – recovery based licensing, and the definitive distinction of a leading vendor’s idea to disrupt a licensing model in hopes of creating a different kind of market. Read on to learn more.
