Into The Future
According To Idc Estimates, We Will Have 44 Times More Data In 2020
Than We Had In 20051 — That’s Upwards Of 35 Zettabytes.
Analysts are projecting a gigantic boom
in data growth, which is being described
as a zettabye apocalypse. While the numbers
are staggering, it’s easy to understand why:
- Data is relied upon more than ever
before — incorporating high-definition video,
medical images, mobile applications and more.
- You and your colleague are creating increasing
amounts of data.
- With mobile technology, we can generate
data any time, any place, anywhere – and we’re
doing this more and more.
Your organisation operates in a business
environment that thrives on data. You know that
effective data management is important, but

The Faster We Can Retrieve It For Recovery Purposes, The Better.

protection to safeguard critical data.
Have you considered the potential risks from
disk-based backups? Their continuous nature means
your critical backup copies could be corrupted
by malware, software or human error.
To mitigate risk, store additional backup
copies offsite and offline. This will provide
static restoration points that are less susceptible
