Data protection is a fundamental component of any technology infrastructure. If data is unexpectedly lost, a system compromised, or a site destroyed, a backup copy enables intellectual property, sales data, and other business information to be recovered. Without backup and recovery, the potential for liability, missed revenue, and lost productivity can be catastrophic for a business. Unfortunately, building a strategy that meets business needs while balancing costs is not always easy. This white paper explains how using a combination of disk and tape in a Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape (D2D2T) configuration, provides the ultimate protection while playing to the strengths of both technologies. With D2D2T, small and midsize businesses can meet business protection requirements without blowing the budget.
