Recent growth in stored data volumes is putting pressure on IT budgets and services delivery, and makes data protection even more of a challenge. A new white paper from Cloudian, sponsored by the Evaluator Group, offers a review and economic evaluation of Cloudian’s Hyperstore as compared to the traditional purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA).
Growth in database data can be expected as enterprises capture and analyze data from the myriad of wireless devices that are now being connected to the Internet. As a result, stored data growth will accelerate.
The challenge now will be to cope with this acceleration in stored data growth rates. In this environment, data protection systems that offer large single-image scale, backup and restore performance, and management simplicity will be needed.
Object-based storage systems, such as Cloudian Hyperstore, are now available that demonstrate these characteristics. While they have a diverse set of use cases, several vendors are now positioning them as on-premises targets for backups.
In addition, integration of object-based data protection storage with cloud storage resources is seen by these vendors as a key enabler of performance at scale, cost savings and administrative efficiency.
