Hidden Costs of Virtualization Backup Solutions, Revealed

Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach. Highlights of this paper include:

  • Rising Hardware and Network Requirements
  • Integrated Database Surprises
  • Slowing Efficiency at Scale
  • The “Double Cost” of Multiple
  • The High Cost of Vendor Lock-In Without Workload Portability
