Evolution of Data Protection - Modernize or Fail

The goal of a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is to simplify compute, network and storage resources to applications. The problem has become that the backup process often breaks the consolidation effort at time when companies can ill afford any downtime. Think of the historical cost of downtime.

82% of companies have experienced unplanned downtime over the past three years and that unplanned downtime can cost a company as much as $260,000 an hour – according to Aberdeen Group

The thinking around data protection for HCI is in dire need of a paradigm shift

These challenges must be addressed:

Treating HCI like traditional infrastructure

Hyperconverged infrastructure are intelligent systems that have extremely efficient snapshots, clones, replications, deduplication and compression. This intelligence is one of the major reasons you invested in HCI. But traditional data protection solutions treat HCI like standard dumb disks. To truly capitalize on your investment, you need to leverage HCI’ capabilities.

Acting like VMs are black boxes

Today’s solutions are maniacally focused on VMs, without any regard to applications. Those VMs are treated as black boxes. There’s no way to know which applications are running on which VMs. Customers are given the wrong perception that generic VM-level snapshots are always enough. The truth is, they don’t work for all applications, and often, you don’t find out your backup fell short until recovery time. Oops!

Carrying over legacy complexity

Hyperconverged’s core value prop is its simplicity. But when you use today’s complex data protection systems, you can’t realize its full potential. HCI solutions can be deployed in 30 minutes, yet most current data protection solutions require multi-day professional services to deploy them. The lack of native integration between most data protection products and hyperconverged environments makes it much more difficult for administrators to rapidly get up-to-speed and become instantly productive. The ideal data protection solution should tightly integrate with the HCI systems and create a closed-loop process.

Focusing on backup, not recovery

When people think of data protection, they tend to focus on the backup. In reality, backup is a simpler task and recovery is the challenging one. What is needed for stress-free recovery? Application context, ease of use, self-service and error proof tools.
