A perfect storm for Backup-and-Restore-as-a-Service demand

We welcome Steve Brothers, VP, Operations and Technology, Ajubeo, as a guest blogger on Around the Storage Block.


HPN23645_BackUp-Service_micrographic_2.jpgThese days, IT organizations like yours are making difficult adjustments related to shrinking budgets, staff reductions—not to mention the need to restore and recover data more and more quickly. In the meantime, many executives view backup as an important but inefficient process that their companies have traditionally had to manage internally.  


If you view all of these factors together, it’s a perfect storm for Backup-and-Restore-as-a-Service (BRaaS) demand. Businesses are increasingly looking to outsource backup processes whenever it makes sense. In particular, these processes must be both efficient and cost-effective while maintaining best practices for risk management. This is not only a challenge but also a significant opportunity for service providers. Here's why.

Mapping the Cape 2 Cape Challenge

CarTeaserJ.jpgWhile visiting HP Discover in Barcelona last month, I was able to meet up with intrepid adventurer, Rainer Zietlow,
and the VW Touareg that was central to the latest “Extreme Testing” project for HP Storage Media.
In September 2014, Rainer and his team were attempting a new world record for long distance driving: from Nordkapp in Norway to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of Africa, in the shortest possible time. The route took them through 19 countries: Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Let’s travel along!
