While virtualisation can boost utilisation and save hardware costs, it poses new backup challenges. For example, the sprawl of virtual machines makes it hard to keep track of virtual backups, and backing up multiple virtual machines can tax the resources of the underlying hardware. Organisations tend to to use different backup tools further complicating backup and recovery. Hence, the right solution is necessary to simplify virtual and physical backup for organisations today.
The success of any business is dependent on the availability and accessibility of information. Unfortunately, today’s data explosion, virtualisation and more stringent service-level agreements (SLAs) have made backup challenging. As a result, organisations have turned to acquiring individual backup solutions to meet increasing demands, making backup fragmented, creating more complexity and costs. To meet backup windows, organisations must reinvent traditional backup – improving the recoverability and accessibility of data.

As IT environments get more complicated, companies deploy different solutions to address different backup challenges. However, fragmented backup solutions are cumbersome to manage, as it slows down the rate of backup and recovery. A simpler, unified approach that incorporates end-to-end deduplication, simplifies disaster recovery and achieves true granular file recovery across physical and virtual environments can help organisations triumph over backup complexity.
