Protecting Data on Virtual Servers
March 25th, 2011 By: Kevin Normandeau
Server virtualization is firmly embedded in the mainstream of enterprise IT. The efficiencies and flexibility of virtualizing server operations have been demonstrated time and again in large enterprises: server virtualization makes it possible to increase server utilization, reduce power consumption, simplify IT workload, and rapidly adapt to changing business needs. Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) (often defined as businesses with up to a thousand employees) are now seeking to achieve many of the same advantages of server virtualization as large enterprises.
But there are significant challenges in planning, implementing, and managing a virtualized IT infrastructure with a smaller IT staff. Virtualized server backup and recovery in particular remain key hurdles for small and medium sized companies. In this Technology Strategy Research paper sponsored by Quest Software, you will learn about the challenges small businesses face when protecting data on virtual servers and strategies to you can take to make server virtualization easier to execute.
With the right tools, SMBs can enjoy the same benefits that server virtualization brings to enterprise organizations: increased server utilization, reduced power consumption, simplified IT workload, and flexibility to rapidly adapt to changing business needs.
