Technology changes over time and the operational workflows for companies change as well. Data protection is one area that is a constant in that the requirements to protect data will continue. What is changing is the method for protecting information. The current workflows used by many in performing backups are unsustainable given the increase in the amount of data and the operational cost increases. New approaches using backup to disk and remote replication to create the protected data copies are more prevalent now and continue to be improved with new technologies introduced.
