With ransomware attacks on the rise and facing the constant risk of operational failures and natural disasters, backup and recovery are a must.
However, long gone are the days of just making copies of your data that you put on the shelf just in case you need to use it in the future. Today's enterprises need fast, self-service access to data that is always available to keep pace with their business.
Modern data protection presents an opportunity to get more value from your data, ensuring availability and facilitating self-service access, which has historically been cumbersome to provide.
DBTA held a webinar with Julian Zgoda, solutions architect, Rubrik, who discussed how modern data protection can help businesses maximize the value of their data.
Modernizing backup and recovery is mission critical, Zgoda explained. IT teams waste valuable time managing backup jobs for 100s of apps. Unstructured data is difficult to index and lifecycle manage. Too many applications go unprotected and recovery success is uncertain and restore times are too long.
Zgoda suggested organizations materialize backups across the protection layer for secondary users. Materialize a single set of data or multiple sets of data, multiple times. Source data is never to be touched or altered in any way.
Cloning/duplicating restores databases to any compatible alternate machine, he said. Rubrik offers all these things and more.
Rubrik Cloud Data Management offers a single software fabric for complete data management across data center and cloud.
It can keep data available and accessible, simplifies advanced recoveries and powers secondary data user workflows, and helps users get more out of their database backups.
