Survey Highlights the Need to Tame the Increasing Complexity of Data Protection, Cost of Downtime
WOBURN, MA – July 9, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today Acronis®, the global leader in new generation data protection announced sponsoring new research from IDCthat identifies complexity and data growth as key data protection challenges for small-and medium-sized businesses. The findings show that more and more organizations are dealing with simultaneously needing to back up physical, virtual and cloud environments, reveal varying levels of cloud backup adoption across different geographies, and bring to light the cost of downtime for SMBs.
The findings are based on a worldwide, cross-industry survey of small and medium businesses (< 1,000 employees) concerning their evolving data protection and disaster recovery needs. Respondents were from eight countries, including: France, Germany, Russia, the UK, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and the US.
Global findings include:
“The findings released today are clear – it’s a different world for IT managers today, and data backup for a small or medium-sized business is more complex than ever,” said Eric Burgener, Research Director, Storage at IDC. “Data sizes and types continue to evolve, as does the number of servers and operating systems each company uses. This leads to a host of new challenges IT managers face to make sure they can back up and protect their data and restore operations quickly.”
“Data is more plentiful, complex, and valuable than ever before,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO at Acronis. “That’s why we pioneered the Acronis AnyData Engine, so organizations of all sizes can easily protect their data and ensure their systems can be restored smoothly, quickly and completely. With downtime costing hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars for some companies, every IT manager should make sure they have a plan in place to restore operations and avoid data loss.”
Survey respondents were all IT personnel with responsibility for purchase decisions and overall management, on the team that had responsibility for these areas, or that influenced purchase decisions in these areas.
