Backup and recovery used to be simple. The process was no more complicated than attaching a tape drive to a server. Today, you have a confusing variety of options, from backing up many servers to one tape drive or SAN to backing up critical data to the cloud. In addition, you have to keep legislation, regulation, and compliance in mind, as they dictate not only what you need to back up, but what you must do with those backups once they have been taken.
In this talk, you'll learn about:
- How to determine which backup technology suits your needs for a particular workload
- Strategies to ensure your retention goals are met
- Tips on ensuring that your backups meet your organization's compliance obligations
- How to save on storage costs and performance hits to your network
