The amount of data in small and enterprise environments has and is continuing to grow exponentially from one year to the next. The complexity of managing large and growing amounts of production data can be daunting. Securing and protecting that data in rapidly changing, 24x7 environments can be challenging requiring the right combination of software, hardware and short/long-term planning. An overall data protection strategy begins with the determination of backup and recovery requirements. Based on those requirements, backup storage policies for onsite and offsite requirements should be defined.
