  • The types of backup targets available today, from tape libraries and VTLs to deduplicating disk arrays, integrated backup appliances and the cloud
  • The capabilities that backup software platforms offer today
  • Backup challenges IT teams face, including backing up large amounts of data, mobile device backup and BYOD, virtual server backup, and slow restore times
