Customers Still Not Protecting Virtualized Data

The Acronis/Ponemon Institute survey also found that most companies are falling short in terms of protecting virtual machine data.

About 33 percent of businesses admitted they do not back up virtual servers as often as they do their physical servers. About 49 percent, of businesses said they back up their virtual machines weekly or monthly. Only 37 percent back up their virtual machines on a daily basis.

CRN Channel Takeaway: Given the fact that over half of new servers being installed are virtual servers, and given the potential for virtual desktops to grow into a major business, solution providers need to be able to help customers protect their virtual infrastructures from a disaster.
