In today’s era of exponential data growth, backup appliances have become a go-to solution in supporting companywide data management goals. An appliance can reduce IT complexity, improve data protection and shrink the storage footprint. The right solution also reduces cost and risk in
disaster recovery, regulatory compliance and e-discovery.
Even with the emergence of cloud backup options, IT leaders are still turning to appliances because they are easy to use and cost-efficient—while giving IT teams greater control over their data. With a modern integrated backup appliance, you can even back up to the leading public cloud services.
With digital transformation, big data analytics and other modern initiatives, IT must be focused on adding value to their organizations. While backup, protection and recovery represent vital areas for the company, IT teams can be far more strategic when they simplify the deployment and management of infrastructure for these functions.
