The industry is adding, not “just” changing

This week, we’re looking at a very important shift in how IT is choosing its production platforms.

Historically, we saw each production platform (mainframe, midrange, NetWare, Windows, virtual) usurp the one before it – but that isn’t true this time.

For most organizations that are investigating cloud services (plural), there isn’t as clear a sentiment that they are “turning off” their existing datacenters, as much as extending them within a multi-cloud strategy. Consequently, it is critical that as workloads evolve from on-premise platforms (e.g. Exchange) to cloud services (e.g. Office 365), you should not devolve from “well-protected” to “non-protected.”

Said another way, moving from servers to services doesn’t absolve you of the long-term retention and multi-version operational recovery mandates that IT has always been governed by, but it can complicate your strategy if you aren’t mindful of the different mechanisms and processes necessary to protect these newer platforms. To ignore that reality is to put your data, and your organization, in peril.

Navigate the series:

  1. When you modernize production, you must modernize protection
  2. The race to zero downtime and data loss
  3. Ya gotta know what ya got
  4. The head and the heart have to agree
  5. The industry is adding, not “just” changing
  6. The hype of copy data management and secondary storage
