6 Battle-Tested Practices to Avoid Data Loss by Greg Shields, Microsoft MVP and VMware vExpert

Don′t take chances with your data! Read this whitepaper, Six Battle-Tested Practices to Avoid Data Loss, and learn strategies to help you avoid data loss, including: 

  • A different look at the state of data protection in virtual environments today
  • The most effective ways that businesses are protecting data
  • New methods to ensure the lowest risk of failure when recovery is necessary

The need for data protection has existed since the first IT department began delivering business services. This need will never change.


What are the strategies you use to protect your data? That shift in strategies has grown even more important with the widespread embrace of server virtualization. Backup and restore solutions that worked with reasonable efficacy in physical environments are in many cases, ill-suited to accommodate the unique aspects of this new “virtual world”.

Avoiding the pitfalls of using the wrong backup solution for your data protection needs requires a two-fold approach. First, data protection policies and procedures must be put into place and need to align with today’s more-stringent business requirements. Second, your selected backup approach — also known as the chosen “solution” — must be designed for the virtual environment you have today, but must also support the changing environment you will continue to have. That same approach and solution must further support the changing environment you will have into the medium-term future.

What follows are a series of suggestions — a CIO’s Guide if you will — to mapping your business requirements to the strategies in data protection now seen in the IT marketplace.
