The Journey to Intelligent Data Management

Becoming a Hyper-Available Enterprise

The Journey to Intelligent Data Management

Becoming a Hyper-Available Enterprise

Key Challenges of Enterprise Data Today

Today’s modern enterprise faces challenges with managing their growing volume of critical data across multiple environments and in various formats to meet both internal and external customer requirements. From banking to shopping to healthcare and more, customers have become accustomed to easy, intuitive, super-fast transactions driven by data. Due to the increasing importance of data, enterprises need confidence that digital transactions will always work as expected. Therefore, they have the dual challenges of not only managing and mining the data they produce and use, but also ensuring that the digital experience is always-on for customers and that the chain of trust is never broken.

To solve these challenges, business leaders need a deep understanding of how enterprise data is changing and how new technologies and approaches can unleash its full value.

Hyper-Sprawl of Data

Data is generated from a wider variety of sources than ever before; managing this data and mining it for new possibilities is an increasing challenge for enterprises today.

Hyper-Criticality of Data

Data is critical in today’s enterprise to deliver improved business outcomes. And the need to ensure that data is secure, protected and in compliance is growing increasingly hyper-critical.

Hyper-Growth of Data

The sheer amount of data, and its rapid growth, is a massive challenge for enterprises.  As data rapidly grows and changes, so do the costs of managing it.

The Five Stages of Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise

In this new reality of hyper-sprawl where enterprise data is scattered across many different clouds and systems, ensuring Availability across the entire enterprise becomes much more critical and much more challenging. To achieve this, data must move to a new state of intelligence, automatically able to anticipate need and meet demand, securely, across multi-cloud infrastructures to meet the expectations of the mobile, always-on world. We call this Hyper-Availability.

To help enterprises become Hyper-Available, Veeam introduces the Five Stages of Intelligent Data Management. Veeam can uniquely help customers along this five-stage journey with innovative, scalable, reliable, easy-to-use solutions for any environment that are all part of the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform.

  • Stage One: Backup
  • Stage Two: Aggregation 
  • Stage Three: Visibility
  • Stage Four: Orchestration 
  • Stage Five: Automation

Back up all workloads and ensure they are always recoverable in the event of outages, attack, loss, or theft.

Provide for the security of data from a systemic perspective; secure, back up, and recover your data wherever it is so it can always be protected against outages, attack, loss, or theft. This stage is about making sure you can get your data back if it is lost or compromised, and that your business can survive; however, there are minimal data insights at this stage, and data is often stored in individual silos.

Ensure protection and availability of data across multi-cloud environments to drive digital services and ensure an aggregated view of service level compliance.

Aggregate data protection for physical, virtual, and cloud workloads so that you have central management across various data locations, enabling multi-cloud use cases. This stage allows instant access to any data, any app, anywhere to drive recovery, analytics, application development, and uninterrupted digital services; the ability to extract full value from your data is just beginning at this point.

Improve management of data across multi-cloud environments with clear, unified visibility and control into usage, performance issues, and operations.

Gain full operational insight into data along with the ability to glean business insights from data to drive better business decisions and outcomes. This stage provides a “single pane of glass” so that a full view of one’s environment allows data management to evolve from a reactive measure, focused on remediating issues that have already occurred, to a proactive measure, preventing any loss in data availability through advanced monitoring, resource optimization, capacity planning, and built-in intelligence. The ability to leverage the value of data is much greater in this stage; however, it is still inefficient and largely dependent on manual processes.

Seamlessly move data to the best location across multi-cloud environments to ensure business continuity, compliance, security, and optimal use of resources for business operations.

Ensure that enterprise data is always on the right infrastructure, always protected, always ready to do work. This stage delivers orchestration capabilities so that workloads can move more easily from one infrastructure to another, providing business continuity and resource optimization via automation informed by policies. Getting from here to the next stage moves us beyond policy-based mechanisms to true automation.

Data becomes self-managing by learning to back itself up, migrate to ideal locations based on business needs, secure itself during anomalous activity, and recover instantaneously.

Data becomes intelligent, location-aware, and self-managing. It learns how to make itself easier to access, back up, recover, and use; how to best interact with and optimize the infrastructure on which it resides and through which it moves to meet its obligations to the business, to security regulators, and to users of the company’s services. And how to react automatically to anomalous behavior in the system. At stage five, you achieve true Intelligent Data Management in your Hyper-Available Enterprise.

Ultimately then, to meet the challenges of enterprise data, you need three things:

  • A new data management strategy that takes a holistic approach to data across its lifecycle.
  • A new approach to data management that evolves from policy-based management to behavior-based management to make data “smarter” and self-governing.
  • A new enterprise platform—Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform—that helps businesses on their journey towards the holy grail of Intelligent Data Management by ensuring data is always protected, in compliance, and available when needed.

This new strategy and approach to data management is outlined in the journey through the Five Stages of Intelligent Data Management discussed above, and the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform delivers the most complete enterprise platform to help customers on the journey to Intelligent Data Management in a Hyper-Available Enterprise.
