1 The Business Case for Cloud Backup

2 Introduc on In this era of skyrocke ng data growth and increasing regulatory scru ny, data protec on and disaster recovery are more important than ever before, especially for small to midsized businesses (SMBs i ). SMBs are also more reliant than ever on access to their data and applica ons. Even a few hours of down me can significantly impact produc vity, sales, customer confidence and reputa on. With natural disasters, cybercrime and other data threats on the rise and in the news, more and more SMBs are recognizing that comprehensive data protec on is not op onal it is a necessity. Data loss and down me are not just costly, but can threaten an SMB s ability to maintain opera ons. This VaultLogix eguide discusses SMB requirements and business drivers for data protec on, and explains the advantages of outsourcing data backup/recovery to a cloud backup provider. SMB Data Protec on Essen als Every SMB needs a data protec on plan that supports both backup/recovery and disaster recovery, while balancing risk and cost. Different businesses have different data protec on needs, and data itself also varies in terms of its cri cality to business opera ons, regulatory compliance and legal electronic discovery mandates. However, every SMB s data protec on plan should address these fundamental requirements: Minimiza on of down me, whatever the cause (natural disaster, equipment failure, human error, security breach, etc.) Access to cri cal data in an emergency Quick access to backed-up files Ability to recover files from any loca on over the Internet Acceptable recovery me for data stored both locally and offsite, not only for individual files but also for databases and even en re servers and desktops Especially given projected data growth rates ii, many SMBs do not have adequate data protec on today. According to Symantec, 74% of SMBs currently have no disaster recovery plan, and only 21% are extremely confident they can restore backed-up data iii. Half of SMBs backup less than 60% of their data iv, leaving the rest vulnerable to irretrievable loss. 2

3 Internal data policies likewise may not have evolved alongside changes in the volume and variety of data now requiring backup. Unfortunately, many SMBs don t know what data they re not protec ng un l it s too late. Data loss is inevitable, and a costly event is frequently what compels an organiza- on to evaluate new backup/restore op ons. The Business Case for Outsourcing Data Protec on The major hurdles to SMB data protec on are the technical difficulty and expense of performing backup/recovery in-house. Unlike their enterprise counterparts, SMBs must make do with minimal IT resources. SMBs may also lack exper se around the legal and regulatory implica ons of data reten- on and backup/recovery; a case in point being key changes in the new HIPAA rules, which went into effect in March 2013 v. But while the compara vely low cost of local storage can provide a false sense of security, tradi onal backup technologies are error-prone and frequently hamper data recovery and applica on up me. Tape libraries, for instance, are notorious for the storage and retrieval problems they create, as well as for reliability issues. Tape backup is also frequently labor-intensive, and results in unacceptably long backup windows. Fixed disk systems are faster and more reliable, but are s ll vulnerable to catastrophic breakdowns or simple human error. The more moving parts a system has, the more points of poten al failure. Hardware failure is the most frequent cause of data loss (40%), followed by human error (29%) and so ware corrup on (13%) vi. Natural disasters cause about 10% of data loss and system down me. Viruses, cybercrime and the the of laptops and other equipment are growing in frequency and significance as causes of data loss and damaging security breaches. Why Cloud Backup is the Best Op on for Many SMBs Thanks to faster Internet speeds combined with advances in data compression and deduplica on, cloud backup op ons are o en the most affordable, reliable and efficient data protec on solu on for SMBs. According to a recent Analyst Insight from Aberdeen Group, 39% of businesses are already using cloud backup more than for any other cloud technology other than So ware-as-a-service (SaaS) vii. At least 30% of SMBs are already using cloud backup, with about 14% more planning to adopt it within one year viii. Cloud backup eliminates the need to purchase and maintain data storage devices and the servers and so ware to run them, and also reduces demands on scarce IT resources. O en a cloud backup service is available at a fixed, predictable monthly cost. With cloud backup services, data to be backed up is automa cally transferred to an offsite data center via the Internet, elimina ng the need to physically transport media (such as in an employee s personal car). Organiza ons define a backup schedule, which the service automa cally executes without human interven on. Backups can encompass file servers, web servers, branch offices, and even mobile employees laptops. Deduplica on and compression tools reduce storage volumes and backup mes. End-toend encryp on op ons improve security for health records, financial and personal data and other regulated data types. Access to backed-up files in the cloud also takes place online, quickly and easily. Most cloud backup services offer the capability to restore servers, desktops and laptops, databases and individual files from any loca on via the web. 3 Cloud Backup Drivers for SMBs For organiza ons that must frequently upgrade their storage capacity, need to mi gate the risk of business interrup ons, and/or are not confident about their ability to restore lost data, cloud backup

4 can address these concerns quickly and with minimal upfront investment. Common business needs that cloud backup helps SMBs meet include: Cu ng IT infrastructure costs without sacrificing efficiency Managing and reducing IT complexity Suppor ng business con nuity and disaster recovery strategies Enabling file sharing with tablets/mobile devices Suppor ng business growth and addi onal users Accelera ng data recovery and reducing the down me associated with data loss Among the biggest advantages of cloud backup is that data is stored offsite, and in many cases is also replicated across mul ple data centers for even greater redundancy and availability. Offsite storage is a cornerstone of business con nuity planning because it enables opera ons to recover faster in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. Considera ons for Choosing a Cloud Backup Provider What factors are most important in choosing a cloud backup vendor? Reliability and cost are certainly key. Many SMBs also look for solu ons that support a mix of onsite and offsite backup. Other factors to consider include: data transfer rate, security/encryp on op ons, use of redundant data centers, specifics of repor ng and SLAs (including service levels for data recovery), and the quality and availability of the vendor s customer support. Con nuous data protec on (CDP or near-cdp, also called real- me backup) is also important to SMBs that want to maximize data protec on for their most recent data.
