The Challenge With Legacy Database Backups and DR

Legacy enterprise database backups struggle with the conflicting needs of high-performance recovery and affordable, secure, long-term storage. The result is often a combination of solutions that is complex and costly.

Needs of DBAs

Database administrators are tasked with keeping the database running with maximum performance and availability.

They need immediate recovery from backup. Typically they backup to local NAS storage, resulting in siloed data that must be managed separately.

Needs of IT

IT is responsible for maintaining long term backups that affordably meet regulatory compliance requirements.

They need long term storage that is secure, affordable, and can meet the goals of the overall organization. Backups are usually done to tape or other media.

The result is multiple backups are performed with different solutions, creating an expensive, complex system that is difficult to manage, full of redundancy, and may leave the organization out of compliance.
