The Worst Backup Surprises
It is devastating to invest time and money into a backup solution only to have it fail when disaster strikes. Unfortunately, an organization that gets backup “mostly” correct can be at risk for a restore process that is long and painful or worse, impossible to restore at all. Do you want to insure that your backup is healthy but you are not sure where to start? I recently I sat down with Cobalt Iron storage engineer, James Kost, to talk about backup issues that sometimes “surprise” customers, but not in a good way. James shared some issues that he has seen in his 15 years of IT experience that have caused problems and strategies to avoid them.
