    • The obstacles that enterprise backup solutions must overcome

    • The increasing complexity of IT environments continually creates fresh challenges for organizations as they seek to protect, backup, recover, replicate and archive data.

      More data to protect

      IT trends such as the Internet of Things, the rise of Big Data, the pervasiveness of video and the use of data-intensive applications are generating vast amounts of data that continue to grow exponentially each year.

      Increasingly complicated environments

      Enterprise backup solutions today must not only protect data that resides on premises, but data in public, private and hybrid clouds as well. 

      Higher expectations for performance and compliance

      Backup windows are constantly shrinking to minimize the impact on application and system performance. Regulatory environments are continually evolving and placing heavier demands on enterprise backup solutions to comply with stricter regulation.

      Fragmented tools

      A great number of IT departments are hamstrung in their efforts to simplify data protection by the use of multiple enterprise backup solutions within the organization, often acquired as a result of organic growth or through merger and acquisition.

      Cost pressures

      Even as the complexity of data protection grows by leaps and bounds, IT organizations are faced with pressure to constrain costs, limit staff resources and to do more with less.
