Most enterprises run backup tools and processes designed for older platforms and simpler times: before hyperscale clouds, near-ubiquitous virtualized workloads, or SaaS applications. Many still use solutions that rely on tape for retaining data. These systems are inefficient, costly, and difficult to manage. They can't scale to serve exponential data growth. They don't respond well to new threats. They make it more difficult to execute on digital transformation or other strategic initiatives. Worst of all, you can't confidently rely on them during a disaster.

Fortunately, you no longer have to live with these problems. Backup technologies and best practices have improved dramatically in recent years. Now, you can transform backup from a low-level legacy IT function to a modern enabler of business continuity and value. This white paper outlines 7 practical, actionable steps you can take today. By focusing on them, you can establish disaster recovery systems that support any technology or business stratefy - and always work when you need them most.
