Western defense and military organizations are broadly working to modernize their IT infrastructure to meet the challenges of tomorrow. As part of the many changes involved in this process, an especially large proportion of defense and military organizations in the Western world are shifting to Bacula Enterprise in order to meet their special needs.
Their IT centers face an ongoing challenge to adapt and improve their IT operations to remain flexible and offer the latest performance capabilities. New and different approaches to security, efficiency and performance are needed – and are indeed currently being adopted - to achieve these improvements.
Bacula anticipates that technology and innovation improvements in this space will increase, especially in specific areas such as automation and digitization technologies, heightened security, new materials, alternative energy sources and storage, the continued proliferation of data sources and the ability to transmit data and increasingly rapid development cycles.
Most of the largest military organizations in the Western world rely on Bacula today to safeguard their critical data. As more defense, military and government agencies shift to using Bacula, a pattern of needs clearly emerges from these organizations, and the reasons why the shift takes place. The Bacula Systems white paper 'Data Backup and Recovery in the Defense Sector' discusses the considerations and advantages of using FIPS 140-2 compliant Bacula Enterprise as a central data backup and recovery system within defense organizations, and how it can – and does - facilitate a specific, yet critical part in these organization’s enterprise-wide approach to digital modernization.
