Data RecoveryThe solutions used in data backup and recovery are outdated, and it is time to consider new trends.

FREMONT, CA: Data is every company's most valuable asset. It is not surprising that companies allocate substantial budgets to protect and preserve it. Companies are looking for new data storage concepts with growing data volumes—not only storage but also the ability to access it more quickly when they need it. In fact, multiple alternatives should be offered at a reasonable price. Such demands push the vendors of recovery and backup solutions to innovate and scale. Here are a few trends in backup and recovery that can best meet the needs of any organization.

Hybrid Cloud

For several reasons, the hybrid cloud has gained popularity as a perfect solution for disaster recovery. While the public cloud can help companies as a budget-friendly solution, compliance and security issues preclude sensitive data and other confidential business records from being stored in the public cloud. The private cloud, on the other hand, is costly and may not be practical for low-budget businesses. In such situations, a hybrid cloud maintains balance by integrating the privileges of the public, private and on-premise solutions.


No doubt, most companies have automated some of their backups and storage processes. Addressing the growing security breaches is not sufficient but also automating any vital backup process. But device-based cloud storage backup ensures automatic backup takes place, for example, the cloud data are immediately backed up so that they can be retrieved regardless of the details uploaded. Companies can, therefore, take control of their crucial business data while preventing data loss and achieving scalability and efficiency.

Artificial Intelligence

In designing and data centers' ongoing management and products there, Artificial Intelligence plays a vital role. Mainly, AI helps reduce database shortfalls in server usage by dividing workloads across servers. This enhances security by tracking the systems and shielding devices from threats 24/7. Ai can also reduce power consumption by spinning discs if necessary without affecting performance.

With the emerging threats, enterprises' demands are rising, and vendors will continually innovate their data backup and disaster recovery solutions to meet customer needs.
