Protect Where Your Data Lives: EMC Data Domain Cloud Tier

Posted by Clearpath Solutions Group on Tue, Feb 13, 2018 @ 10:46 AM

No matter where it lives, data needs to be protected, and as the data protection landscape continues to evolve, the amount and variations of data that need to be protected is evolving as well. With these changes, companies cannot afford to secure sensitive information as previously done in the past. Today’s businesses are faced with explosive data growth, strict retention policies and the pressure to reduce costs. Low-cost, high-capacity object storage in the public, private and hybrid cloud is the way to address these challenges.

Preservation of critical business data is essential to most businesses, especially small and medium businesses (SMBs). Whether protecting against loss of intellectual property (IP), financial data, healthcare data, etc., recovery of data otherwise lost due to hardware/software failure or disaster can mean the difference between staying afloat or going under in the wrong circumstances. Virtualization further compounds the need to have a sound backup policy by consolidating more workloads (read: more data) into a typically ever smaller hardware footprint.
