Latest analysis from Gartner warns that businesses are spending at least 20 per cent more than they need to on unnecessary data backup and storage. That’s a scary $10 billion wasted every year.
In Gartner’s view this is down to a number of issues, including a common failure for corporate backup policies to keep pace with a fast-changing data environment. Another is that many businesses misunderstand the purpose of backup. “Often, the problem is that companies mistake backup technology for data archiving,” says research vice-president, Dave Russell. “Backup is largely for operational recovery, not for long-term retention.”
