Backup architecture design is about meeting the business goals of the organization using the least resources possible. The point is to show that backup storage acquisition is not a one-off thing. It is undertaken to meet strategic goals which have real business benefit – and real costs if ignored. The template includes sections covering:
- Backup Architecture Acquisition Strategic Assessment
- Problem Identification
- Opportunity Assessment
- Recommended Backup Investment
- Business Plan Approval
This template will help build a backup architecture acquisition business plan for the enterprise, as well as document business justifications for purchase of a particular backup storage configuration. The resulting document is therefore intended for both initial project scoping and for reuse in future projects.
