This paper highlights that firms evaluating next-generation data protection solutions must expect a greater degree of integration between the technology components in today’s data protection path. Firms that have made an investment in tape infrastructure may want to continue to leverage it, but for different needs. While the use of tape will likely continue to evolve, firms need a fast, efficient, and cost-effective approach for operational and disaster recovery. In addition, today’s data volumes, virtualized infrastructure, and changing management models require software that provides functionality to address these environments while supporting both disk and tape as a backup target. The value of this integration is around extensibility and investment protection while offering a paradigm shift in the way data is protected and recovered, enabling an IT organization to meet today’s performance, reliability, and recovery challenges while also supporting a fundamental shift in how and by whom data protection and restoration functions are performed in the future.
