Having processes for data-backup and data-recovery helps your enterprise maintain business continuity since (should the worst happen and your data is lost) the data can be restored from a backup. In some locales a backup and recovery process that meets a set of minimum requirements is something that a business must have in order to comply with local law.
Today, enterprises over the world clearly understand that company data is highly important. Not just for business continuity, but for the continued existence and sustained growth of the enterprise itself. Protecting data and ensuring that it is accessible around the clock is a critical task.
However, this is one of the most complex operational challenges that we face today. With such a myriad of infrastructure options, it is not difficult to encounter different data-protection plans being executed simultaneously within an organization.
