In this profile we examine the business and technology trends that complicate and increase the cost of enterprise-wide DR planning, and we summarize the proven benefits of disk-to-disk backup and replication technologies. We then dive deeper, and explore the critical role WAN optimization plays in unlocking DR efficiencies when deployed along with these data protection solutions. WAN optimization enables the enterprise to do more with its current network capacity-more frequent and faster backups and replication, plus faster recovery- while leveraging new capacity quickly and efficiently. We conclude that a WAN optimization solution, when combined with advanced replication technologies, delivers remarkable flexibility, performance, and cost benefits for multi-datacenter enterprise disaster recovery.
