Choosing the Right Data Backup and Recovery Services for Your Business

Unique Solutions |

According to Gartner, not more than 35% of small and medium-sized businesses are confident with their backup and disaster recovery systems. Storage Servers are after all physical devices that, at the most, maybe fortified behind strong walls but cannot be made completely immune to calamities. What this means is a great chunk of companies are unsure whether they will be able to save their data in case of a natural or man-made disaster. Then there is also the ever-lurking threat of ransomware which has prompted new compliance demands around data protection.

Companies differ greatly in the level of help they’re looking for – some may require a quick review of their backup environment, some may want help in redesigning the entire backup and recovery strategy while some may be looking for augmented data center security. Whatever your level of need, we at HPE strongly believe that if you’re going to invest in an analysis of your backup processes and systems, you should do it in a way that’s tightly integrated with your core support services.
