Tools designed for physical backup and retrofitted for
use with virtual machines (VMs) suffer from the “3C”
problem. Issues with capabilities, complexity and cost force
organizations to make compromises that prevent them from
realizing the full potential of their virtualization investments.
What’s needed is a solution that’s Built for Virtualization™.
The 3C problem
Minimizing downtime and data loss is essential for any business, but with data
growing at an alarming rate—approximately 30-50% annually—meeting recovery
objectives (RPOs and RTOs) is becoming increasingly difficult for legacy backup
tools. Backup and recovery take too long, and with 24x7 operations shrinking
backup windows, your VMs—and business—are at risk.
Deploying, monitoring and maintaining agents on every VM is no easy task. Plus,
workloads in virtual environments are highly dynamic and legacy backup tools
weren’t designed to keep up, so you have to constantly tune backup jobs.
Spending too much on your backups is easy to do, but it’s not good for your
bottom line. Ever-increasing storage demands put additional strain on your IT
budget, and when you consider the costs associated with backup software,
maintenance, and the manpower needed to manage it all—it quickly becomes
clear that you’re not getting what you’re paying for.
