What Is Next-Generation Data Protection?

It’s no longer news that the volume of data is exploding. What’s news is that the business value of that data continues to increase and, with it, the need for rapid access.
Unfortunately, moving massive volumes of data from one place to another in traditional storage approaches is no longer viable. Backup and restore take much longer, impacting availability for applications and services. And organizations that require agility to effectively compete in the global economy cannot access data quickly enough to maintain their edge.
While previous generations of backup and storage were built on a common theme—source, process, store and restore data faster and cheaper—they no longer effectively meet today’s expectations for rapid restore and immediate access. That’s why today’s organizations are looking to next-generation data protection strategies to provide rapid data access.
