This tool is designed to help organizations that are engaged in redesigning their backup architecture to understand which solution is best suited to their business needs. It is a guideline only and recommendations should be considered alongside discussions with backup storage vendors.
This tool helps to determine the appropriateness of backup architecture solutions based on the factors that Info-Tech Research Group found to be decisively important. These factors include:
- Data criticality
- RPOs and RTOs
- Speed and performance of backup and restore
- Capacity requirements
Use this tool to gauge which solution is the best fit for your organization. The most appropriate solution is one that fits business needs at the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO).
