For today’s organizations, fast data backup and recovery represents a tool of vital importance for the execution of their processes and operations, and is often not given the appreciation it merits until we need to make use of it.
One of the reasons for data backup often having only low visibility within an organization is because its services can often go quite some time without being truly employed, and which also operates at times outside the working day, largely unnoticed.
Taking into account these factors, together with often limited resources in IT departments and the fact that data volume has, typically, grown significantly in most organizations due to the use of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data among others, we need to aim for backup to be as fast and efficient as possible. The integrity and completeness of the data must also be assured.
Overall, fast backup software is not only about the speed in the execution of backup and recovery, but must meet other requirements, such as ease of use, easy administration, configurability, and adaptability to changes in requirements, such as:
It is worth noting, that even if all the above mentioned requirements are met, fast backup software often requires:
In short, effective and fast backup software, in addition to allowing the execution of backups at high speeds, must also adapt in an agile way to changes in requirements and needs, such as: objects to back up, adjustments in planning, manual execution backups and restores, configuration of new jobs, changes and resizing of backup hardware, among others.
The backup application must be comprehensive and offer all the functionality to configure, manage, execute, monitor and notify all backup activities in organizations. Bacula Enterprise Edition is especially equipped to offer exactly these functionalities, and most importantly: providing exceptional adaptability to the needs of companies.
