Backing up data at the edge is fraught with challenges concerning the importance of the data and the limitations of the hardware at your disposal. In this episode of the On-Premise IT Podcast, Jody Lemoine, Ben Young, and Bart Heungens discuss how edge backup differs from traditional enterprise disaster recovery. They highlight the need to identify data retention requirements for edge systems as well as the pitfalls of using cloud solutions versus local options for disconnected devices or lackluster connectivity situations. The discussion wraps up with questions that operations teams should be asking to get in front of these challenges before disaster strikes.
