As a data management professional or senior manager in any large enterprise or corporate body you have probably tried every system designed for Corporate Data Backup, technology and device and you are aware that hardware and software are constantly evolving. No doubt if you have not already ventured into Cloud Backup you will be forced to consider it.
However many enterprise data managers are rightly cautious about Cloud data solutions and feel they should be 100% in control of their own data or at least keep local backups. A recent report from The Ponemon Institute suggests that many IT Security professionals working in the enterprise or corporate environment feel that a breach of cloud data is more likely and more costly than ‘in house’ systems failure or corruption. If you share this concern you may want to focus on onsite backup and storage solutions.
As part of your master data management strategy you will have used multiple backup solutions and technologies including Magnetic Tape, Magnetic Disk and Optical Disk and depend on employees to create backups and store them safely. You should already know that backup procedures are often not capable of restoring the valuable data they were designed to protect. The cost of data loss can be very severe and it is important to have a robust data management strategy including a good backup and recovery plan that is tested regularly.
