While data backup is fairly straightforward, timely data restoration can be a challenge for many organizations. From desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones to the multitude of devices in the Internet of Things, the number and variety of data-generating endpoints continues to increase. Enterprises have spent substantial financial and intellectual capital incorporating these new sources of data into their backup plans, and are now beginning to tackle the issue of backing up cloud-based applications.

Such a segregated approach can lead to siloed data backups which lack the context necessary for a globally managed business environment. The end result is disparate data recovery processes across multiple applications and devices. As expected, this often causes business continuity (BC) to suffer, increases costs, reduces productivity, and accelerates the risk of compliance violations.

This webinar will address the changing rules of backup in modern BC, discuss common points of failure and how to avoid them and outline steps to create a seamless end-to-end BC system that meets performance requirements at the lowest possible cost.

Key topics to be addressed:

  • Typical BC / DR system design and challenges
  • Risks of data silos to disaster recovery and business continuity and how IT can eliminate them?
  • Business integration of new data sources into a unified BC / DR system
  • Meeting Recovery Time Objectives and Recovery Point Objectives at the lowest possible cost
  • Considerations when choosing backup technology and service partners

“Enterprise backup has become increasingly complex as the number of servers, desktops, laptops, mobile devices and cloud applications have skyrocketed. As a result, the resources, time and professional support required for proper business continuity has overrun many IT budgets,” said Tracy Staniland, VP, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “Unifying the backup environment under a single management platform brings significant efficiencies, better performance and exceptional oversight to maximize uptime while reducing overall costs. This webinar provides a path for CIOs, CTOs, storage architects and other IT decision-makers seeking the benefits of this approach.”
