In the world of product design, a common saying when considering a new product concept is "Good, fast and cheap - pick two." The majority of decisions are always a balance of high quality, features, time to market and cost of goods. Sacrifices are always made somewhere - one can't have it all. In the world of data protection, similar balances exist when implementing a comprehensive plan. Security, disaster recovery, ease of use, compliance and cost are often considered and require a balanced approach for any size company. Balancing all the aspects of data storage will sometimes involve heated negotiations between company divisions. Different company divisions will have conflicting goals and objectives - one can't have it all.
