The need for protecting data is universal – whether a small to mid-size business, the largest enterprise data center, or an individual. The recognition of the value of information and the impact of data loss has reached the point where repeating it is no longer required. The issue now has turned to how to protect the data.
This white paper covers the need for backup and the unique challenges faced by small and medium sized businesses when addressing storage needs. He then highlights different backup options and selection criteria for choosing the best backup solution.

Most companies continue to turn their backs on backup encryption because they think it will lead to new costs, performance problems, and recovery headaches. Read why ESG believes things are about to change to radically upset the backup encryption status quo and why Spectra Logic's recent entry into backup encryption is worth noting.
Traditional backup systems provide a critical layer of insurance, but they represent all-or-nothing strategies that do not cover the minute by minute daily data writes to the disk. Continuous data protection fills in this gap by capturing changes to data while users are working. In the event of a data interruption, administrators can automatically reconstitute the data in reverse order to a point before it was corrupted or lost.
The amount of data on business computers has grown astronomically over the past few decades. If a company loses this data, business grinds to a halt. The following tips can help you select the hardware and software you need to safeguard the integrity of your data, guarantee accurate restores, and manage backups without placing an undue burden on IT personnel.
By utilizing the speed and reliability of the EMC CLARiiON® AX150 networked storage system and the convenience of EMC Retrospect® 7.5 for Windows backup and recovery software, SMBs can implement fast, effective, reliable data protection that is easy to set up and manage without placing undue strain on IT resources.

Well-publicized disasters highlight the need for an effective and timely data recovery solution.
