The challenges of data management
Regardless of the pace of technological change and digital transformation, enterprises drive value with data. This explosive information growth means data protection is not only more important than ever before but being capable to quickly & easily search through billions of files and restore the required data is paramount.
Today’s enterprises are always on, organisations expect 24×7 access to their data, services & applications. Restore requests take many forms such as legal discovery, regulatory compliance, privacy requests or cyber incidents such as Ransomware. Regardless, the expectation is that IT will be able to identify the file or files and recover them near instantaneously.
Utilising highly skilled & high-cost NetApp storage administrators to perform mundane backup and recovery tasks does not make sound economic sense, let alone recognising the opportunity cost of taking them off higher value tasks and activities.
While NetApp’s data protection features are some of the most advanced in the industry, leveraging that technology for scheduling, managing and enforcing backups requires strong NetApp knowledge. Restoration of files means direct access rights are required to the NetApp or VMware infrastructure and requires the same high skill and valuable resource.
