Zetta.net Unveils 2013 Predictions for Online Backup and Recovery
Hardware Backup Appliances Move Toward Extinction While New Generations of Cloud-Based Backup and Recovery Technologies Are More Widely Adopted
Zetta.net today unveiled five predictions for the online backup and recovery market for 2013, all pointing to the broader adoption of online backup in more industries and the extinction of hardware backup appliances. From education and government, to SMBs and large enterprises with distributed office locations, online backup will become mainstream as organizations seek hassle-free, lower cost reliable solutions.
1. Online backup will become dominant in SMB, education, and local government
The types of organizations that have the most to gain from cloud server backup and disaster recovery are small and medium businesses, large enterprises with distributed offices, education institutions, and local governments. Why?
- Better security standards are exceeding what the majority of SMBs and distributed offices of large enterprises do in-house, and secure online server backup enables governments and schools to meet compliance requirements in a way that tape can't.
- Enterprise-grade performance -- speed, security and functionality -- is available at an affordable cost, making online server backup accessible to companies like never before. A company with 300+ employees can backup 4TB of new data in less than 24 hours and make it accessible anywhere in the world.
- Online server backup is only a fraction of the cost required for backup software, storage, support and offsite services -- not including the time and resources spent managing multiple products and vendors.
