Data protection needs are evolving rapidly. Today's enterprise infrastructure is characterised by multicloud, hybrid IT, heterogeneous infrastructure, demanding applications, multiple endpoint devices, huge volumes of data, and a changing threat landscape. To add to this, the imminent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is further toughening data compliance requirements and there is a pressing need to keep data and applications highly available and secure all the time for end users.

This calls for a modern approach to backup and data protection and use of solutions that support multiple cloud platforms and virtual infrastructures, have automated capabilities and next-generation data protection features such as faster recovery, intelligent protection and restoration, quicker insights across infrastructure, easy-to-use dashboards, and flexible purchase options.

The need for a holistic data protection solution compatible with all workloads in all environments is much more pressing as data becomes widely dispersed across multiple on-premise datacentres, multiple cloud platforms, and SaaS applications.

IDC predicts that more than 70% of European enterprises will commit to multicloud and hybrid architectures by 2018, driving up the rate and pace of change in IT organisations. This means enterprises will need to break away from using separate, siloed backup and protection solutions for each environment.

As European organisations execute on their digital transformation strategies, their storage priorities are focused on improving performance, ensuring compliance, and moving to cloud-based data protection and backup as they modernize their infrastructures.

Respondents also said protecting data repositories as separate entities on each infrastructure using separate solutions is inefficient and prone to user error and cyberattacks. It also lacks holistic visibility to ensure compliance and identify issues, forcing enterprises to evaluate backup software and services solutions over siloed appliances.

The diversity of data, applications, and infrastructure is only going to get more challenging as IoT devices go mainstream. In our opinion, European enterprises need solutions that can help them centrally manage and protect data.

Acronis Backup 12.5

Data protection and storage vendor Acronis has released Acronis Backup 12.5 (Standard and Advanced editions), aimed at helping users consolidate the management and protection of data regardless of its physical location or application deployment model.

It has added 170 new features to the latest edition with emphasis on two key areas — user experience and security. Key enhancements include instant restore capabilities for 15-second RTOs, incremental recovery of virtual machines through a feature called vmFlashback, and a customisable dashboard so backup admins can get quick insights into their backup infrastructures.

The Advanced version includes additional enterprise features such as Oracle backup and recovery, bare metal recovery automation, SAN storage snapshots, and disaster recovery capabilities across 21 infrastructures and hypervisors including key platforms such as AWS, Azure, SoftLayer, VMware, Microsoft, Red Hat, Citrix, Oracle, mobile operating systems, and hosted environments.
