Data protection in today's corporate IT environment is imperative and increasingly difficult. Several factors are making it hard for IT teams to keep up with data protection demands, including:
- There's far more data to protect than ever before, and the scope of data protection is determined not just by business objectives but also by ever-expanding regulatory requirements.
- Despite exponential data growth, data backup windows are typically unchanged or shrinking.
- Backup and archival storage capacity is being strained by the growing volume of protected data and by longer mandated retention periods.
- In a hyper-competitive, technology-driven marketplace, businesses are demanding that their IT groups deliver lightning-fast data and services recovery in the event that primary data copies are lost, corrupted, or become unavailable.
Vblock™ Systems converged infrastructure solutions from VCE enable IT groups to meet these modern data protection challenges while also improving overall IT efficiency and agility.
