Five Tips for Effective Backup and Recovery in Virtual Environments

Virtualization is being rapidly adopted, particularly in small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) where time and money are always at a premium. It brings significant time, money and labor savings in a variety of areas, including procurement, administration, deployment, operation, reliability and recoverability. Virtualization can radically simplify management of the entire environment and enable the SMB administrator to do more with less. Moreover, disaster recovery becomes significantly easier once a business has virtualized, provided the administrator adopts newer, more efficient technologies that are designed to work with the virtual infrastructure. However, like any technology, virtualization brings challenges that can erode its cost benefits and leave the infrastructure less protected than before. In this paper, Quest’s data protection experts offer five tips for effective backup and recovery to help you avoid the challenges that might keep you from fully protecting your virtual assets and infrastructure. You will discover how simple and affordable effective virtual data protection can be, and maximize your investment in your virtualized infrastructure.
