Silver Peak CTO Emphasizes Importance of Offsite Data Replication for Disaster Recovery
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Peak Systems today released the third installment in a six-part
video series that features Silver Peak founder and CTO, David Hughes (News - Alert),
looking ahead into the key information technology (IT) trends for 2013.
In this video, Hughes highlights the importance of data
replication for any size business - large or small - and the need to
ensure efficient replication as part of a disaster
"A key component of any disaster recovery strategy is off-site
replication," says Hughes. "You need to be able to take the core data
you need to run your business and move it to another location,
preferably thousands of miles away, and be able to restore that data
after a disaster as part of a disaster recovery strategy."
Hughes goes on to note that businesses today, regardless of size, have
become increasingly dependent uon IT. Since these businesses cannot
afford to lose data or customers, he says nearly every organization
needs to think about how it is replicating
data as part of its disaster recovery strategy.
Each video in the series examines areas of IT and networking that Hughes
feels will be accentuated during the coming year. The first video in the
series featured Hughes' thoughts on the hype and reality of software
defined networking (SDN) while the second video focused on how virtualization
is redefining IT.
