Importance of storage and backup

Data is the lifeblood of any modern business. Availability and access is critical for users to fulfil their roles and for applications to function. Data storage systems securely host and serve data. Different types of storage technology cater to the different needs of a business. However, all systems must be resilient and highly available.

Making a copy of the data on separate storage system is critical to protect against data loss or corruption. Retaining multiple copies of data provides the insurance and flexibility to restore to a point in time that is not affected by data corruption or malicious attacks.
