Is Backup Dead? – The On-Premise IT Roundtable

The Premise: Is Backup Dead? 

Data protection used to be pretty straightforward. In recent years, there have been a number of changes in enterprise backup. It’s not necessarily that backup has changed, but systems and people have changed. In fact, many small and medium-sized businesses don’t even have servers anymore. Now, we have different applications and different infrastructure, and we have to adjust our processes to accommodate new systems. In this episode, we’re talking about backup… specifically, the death of backup. If backup has no business value, is out of touch with the times, or doesn’t exist anymore altogether, then what does data protection and recovery look like today? The question we tackle in this On-Premise IT Roundtable is: Is backup dead?
