I have been running a poll for a few months now that asks the question: would you back up your business data to the cloud? I have to admit that I find the results a little surprising, but they have been consistent over time, and are relatively consistent across geography. Approximately 50% of respondents have indicated that they are willing to backup up to the cloud.
With the latest release of NetWorker, EMC has introduced cloud backup as native functionality. Right out of the box, NetWorker users can clone backup data to a target in the cloud. EMC is hosting a Live Event that discusses the functionality in greater detail.
EMC NetWorker Fast Start and the new Cloud Backup option offer a secure and affordable alternative to the pain and expense of offsite tape vaulting. Attend this webcast and learn how you can:
- Reduce personnel expenses by automating offsite data protection
- Cut the hard costs associated with tape infrastructure and offsite storage facilities
- Choose a flexible “pay-as-you-go” model for offsite storage
