Rise of moving mission-critical applications into virtual machines requires rethinking data accessibility

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – June 7, 2016 — / — Arcserve, LLC, the market’s first provider of simple, unified data protection for cloud, virtual and physical environments, today announced its newest trends in server virtualization. A new eBook that covers the history, utility and future of this technology reported that the growth of virtualization-first policies does not correlate with businesses that have adopted advanced solutions to protect virtual server data.

Despite an increasing focus on the benefits of virtualization for businesses of all sizes, a recent survey by Spiceworks found that nearly the same number of IT pros currently using server virtualization consider their organizations at risk for technology, IT security, and man-made disasters or incidents. Moreover, two-thirds of businesses that have deployed virtual servers are not leveraging advanced backup and recovery tools, despite the increased risk of data loss events. As a consequence of this trend, organizations are exasperating the very problems that virtualization is intended to solve.

“The unique capabilities of server virtualization can significantly strengthen a company’s ability to reduce its capital expenditure and operating expenses, thus enabling the reallocation of funds to other areas of the business,” said Christophe Bertrand, vice president of product marketing for Arcserve. “However, many mission-critical applications, which often have no tolerance for data loss, are at risk without ensuring continuous data availability. Deploying a virtual infrastructure, even in a hybrid scenario, demands a unique approach that consists of new data protection techniques.”

Arcserve reveals additional trends, as well as new business continuity techniques that are unique to virtualization, in its complimentary eBook.
