Digitally Transforming Enterprises Are Managing to Higher Levels of Storage and Data Availability
This IDC Perspective reviews how storage and data availability requirements are on the rise, focusing in particular on what this has meant for availability targets set by enterprises and how well organizations are performing in meeting those targets. Survey results collected in December 2018 are used to shed light on how enterprises define and measure availability, what methods they're using to protect their applications and data, and also any location dependencies associated with defined availability tiers (noncloud, private cloud, public cloud).
"As enterprises evolve to new, more data-centric business models where data is a key strategic resource, data availability requirements are on the rise," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group. "More workloads are deemed mission-critical than in the past, and more stringent recovery point and recovery time objectives are being established to help organizations manage to the higher levels of availability required."
