Today’s business is an always-on business. Businesses today require 24/7 access to data, efficient management of exploding data, and little tolerance for downtime and data loss. Complicating matters is the need to get data safely off-site. Storing backups to tape offers one strategy but this method can be costly and does not offer the reliability of other methods.
