Legacy Backup and Why It Should Be Left Behind

In a fast-growing digital world, service availability requirements are close to 24/7/365 and have the highest priority. Ensuring availability of services that meet SLAs is almost impossible without the proper level of data protection. More than a decade ago, in the era of real-server environments, legacy backup solutions were popular and widely used for data protection.

Some time ago, virtual and cloud platforms came to market. Almost all vendors nowadays optimize their software and hardware for using it in/with the virtual environment, and modern data centers are already completely virtualized. Many companies have come to understand that virtualization technologies mean more efficient use of resources. Even small companies realize that server resources are wasted, and fast-growing virtualization technologies can replace these physical means and help them solve the problem of limited resources.
