Conquer the unique challenges of remote and mobile backups
Today's workforce is obviously increasingly mobile and dispersed. Data is created and stored at remote offices, home offices and on laptops and mobile devices. Protecting that data presents a variety of challenges to IT staffs.
There are many options available for protecting remote offices. Many shops today are moving away from on-site tape or disk and instead opting for acentralized backup approach -- copying data over a WAN to the home data center. However, this can be expensive, so others are sending these backups to the cloud.
Laptop and mobile backups come with unique challenges. The biggest may be that they are not always connected to an organization's network. And when they do connect, bandwidth can be an issue. Mobile device operating systems also present a challenge but there are products available that can perform backups of these devices.
This Essential Guide offers information on laptop and mobile backups, including remote office, cloud and endpoint backup challenges, and the technologies available to address them.
