When a backup solution is implemented, it performs tasks that may seem simple in essence (such as copy and restore), but actually require a high level of sophistication, as well as taking care of many details which must be satisfied to achieve a fully functional solution that is efficient and effective.In this digital age, where data grows rapidly with the use of new technologies, importance is often placed on the availability of information analysis to offer benefits to users and organizations, allow them to satisfy their requirements and needs in an integrated and reliable way. It is fundamental that the data is readily available, both in quantity and quality.
For this reason, top backup software must satisfy the above requirements, as well as a variety of operational needs and functionalities, such as:
Typically, most sources of information generation are of diverse nature and highly varied types. The flexibility and adaptability of top backup software makes it possible not only to address data in an integrated way, but to grow to an organization’s requirements, derived from both processes and user increase.
However, it is important to note that secondary storage may not be 100% reliable because many situations can arise, such as natural disasters, hardware failures, viruses and even user error (accidental or not) that can cause losses of months or years of data. This may include vital information for the operability of organizations.
Top backup software should enable enterprises to manage local backup scenarios (on hardware such as disks, tape drives, storage networks, and so on) and remote sites using WAN networks (which may well be at another locality or in the cloud), which is an option widely used today).
Taking into account these variables and conditions, in choosing a top backup software one should consider:
Originally, backup solutions were typically very expensive and therefore were often not implemented or successful in organizations. They were often considered a high expense. For that reason there was a need to lower costs, including that of hardware resources. The emergence of open source applications and especially Linux made it possible to use backup and restore solutions more widely in companies. Similarly, a reduction in some hardware and software costs now make it easier for organizations to utilize more resources for their business support platform.
It is important to have a top backup solution that provides an easy to configure and define tools as part of a Disaster Recovery plan, which allows companies to have a mechanism to protect and safeguard data to safe places and/or places in case of a natural disaster or similar. It is worth mentioning that this not only involves the restoration of information, but also all the procedures to be followed for the recovery, validation and normalization of the processes and operation’s activities.
Top backup software allows companies to be faster, safer, more efficient and more reliable. Bacula Enterprise Edition makes this possible and realistic. Above all, its most important characteristics are adaptability and ease of use in diverse and heterogeneous environments, both for equipment and operating systems.
Increased Ransomware Attacks Despite numerous Cyber security incidents making international news on a regular basis over the last few years, it was specifically the WannaCry ransomware attack in May 2017 that brought renewed and urgent focus on what organizations need to do to protect their businesses and services from ransomware. This attack seriously impacted thousands…
Continuous Data Protection (CDP) enables you to back up your data in real time at a pace that is most convenient for you. It automatically detects and saves each and every change made to your data, so that nothing is left overlooked. These changes can be stored locally or remotely and are readily available for…
Overview As containers are increasingly deployed in mission-critical operational environments, organizations are increasingly becoming concerned with security, backup and recovery, and other data management issues. Initially, the majority of containerized applications were stateless, which allowed them to be more easily be deployed on a public cloud. However, as stateful applications that require access to a…
