This paper examines traditional and leading-edge data protection strategies.
Today's business climate is experiencing an unprecedented 40 to 50 percent growth in data volumes, necessitating an efficient approach to data backup and recovery. While traditional tape-based backup has proven effective over the years, disk-based backup and recovery provide the essential, instant, and on-demand solution for data inflation. A review of each solution clearly advances the case that Windows® based organizations can best manage data growth and speed up data recovery through disk-based backups. Integrating disk-based backups with the latest functionality in Symantec Backup Exec 11d provides businesses with complete and continuous protection of their growing data. Likewise, the continuous data protection capabilities of Backup Exec 11d significantly reduce the restrictive backup windows that typically plague administrators.
