Data Protection Appliances: For When Cloud-Based Data Protection Software Isn't Enough
Software that takes advantage of the capacity and flexibility of public or private clouds is an important component for a complete data protection solution. But for customers looking beyond simple data protection, cloud-focused backup and recovery software may not be enough.
For an extra layer of protection combined with a burst of performance, data protection appliances may be the answer. These appliances are typically based on commodity hardware to provide local backup and recovery for performance, although software-based virtual appliances are also available. For additional resiliency and to provide remote access to data in a disaster, they also replicate data to external clouds.
