Vizioncore is introducing the Backup 2.0 campaign, offering to help educate administration teams on the advantages of using images to reinvent data protection in all environments.
This campaign is intended to assist organizations in transforming their environments and gaining significant cost-savings advantages in the process.
As data center deployments become more and more complex, Backup 1.0 methods are struggling to keep pace and are proving to be too expensive to operate and maintain.
Backup 1.0 methods also lack sufficient recovery options and are impractical in virtual environments.
In contrast, Backup 2.0 uses images to reinvent how data is collected, transmitted and recovered, and the images are used to make backup copies rather than individual files.
This approach leads to many advantages:
- Ease-of-use: capturing images rather than files is faster, easier and allows for more types of data to be protected;
- Improved recovery speeds: Backup 2.0 uses a single backup image to deliver all types of recovery quickly and with fewer resources consumed;
- Increased flexibility: Backup 2.0 can image all environments, both physical and virtual;
- Lower costs: With Backup 2.0, data protection infrastructure is streamlined, and backup agents as well as servers are eliminated, which lowers costs and simplifies operations.
In addition, Vizioncore studies show that the resulting ROI for image-based data protection is significant: Organizations adopting Backup 2.0 solutions can expect at least $15 returned for every $1 invested within the first year of deployment.
A popular Backup 2.0 method is Direct-to-Target, which delivers improved data compression, infrastructure consolidation and performance compared to proxy-based Backup 2.0 methods. In this market, Vizioncore’s vRanger Pro Data Protection Platform (DPP) solution is the leading Direct-to-Target Backup 2.0 product.
As a comprehensive backup and recovery solution for virtual infrastructures, vRanger Pro DPP complements existing data protection strategies such as Backup 2.0 to help reduce the backup window with minimal impact on IT resources.
