Backup Without Borders

Posted by R1Soft on May 31, 2013 9:00:00 AM



Much like the world in the novel and film 1984, there was a time when computing was neatly broken into three distinct monolithic empires— Microsoft, Apple and Linux. Yes, there were distinctions among different flavors of Linux, and even some old Unix variants. There were different versions of Windows to contend with. But between the three there was not much interaction. What worked in one empire, usually did not work in the others. Backup solutions reflected this reality.

Beyond breaking into distinct OS camps, the backup market was even more fragmented. There were backup solutions for databases, backup solutions for applications, backup for just data, configuration backup and on and on. How many different backup solutions could you manage? How many did you want to manage? Let’s not, for now, even discuss the cost of all of these backup solutions.

The good news is that much like that iconic hammer in Apple’s 1984 commercial, R1Soft's server backup solutions have smashed through these monoliths, breaking down the borders and bringing freedom to backup solutions.

Backup in a Mixed Bag World

There has been quite a bit written recently about the usually static world of backup undergoing sweeping changes. The post-PC era—with the cloud, app-centric strategies, virtualization and diverse operating systems—has put more pressure and higher performance demands on backup solutions than ever before.

In a recent article in Channelnomics, Rethinking Data in a Multifaceted World, the author makes the case that the old one-to-one paradigm of backup to server is gone. Virtualization imposes not only new opportunities for backing up physical servers, but also new responsibilities for backing up virtual servers. In another article on Channelnomics, author Stefanie Hoffman makes the case for the new priorities in backup.
