Rethinking Data Protection: the Leap from Tape to Cloud 

Rapid technological advances have shed light on the need for businesses to simplify their data protection environment. While more traditional archival models have reached various degrees of success, particularly concerning off-site storage, forward-thinking organisations are looking into better ways of managing long-term data retention. Thankfully,  cutting-edge solutions exist that respond to such needs. 

Along with supporting businesses in compliance, security and reliable long-term data retention, last-generation platforms are now focusing on providing clients with integrated solutions for enhanced functionality.

  • How have leading transportation companies in Victoria transformed their backup platforms to simplify their data protection environment? 
  • What areas of data retention do current storage solutions fall short of and how can cloud storage improve them?
  • Which back-up systems provide effective cost optimisation, improved time management, and increased chances for recovery?
