Because of the outstanding economy, flexibility, and service levels it offers, virtualization is transforming data centers at breakneck speed: by 2016, an estimated 80 percent of the world's x86 servers will be Virtual Machines (VMs). 

Nowhere is the complexity that virtualization creates for traditional IT services more apparent than in backup and recovery, which participants in a recent Symantec survey ranked among their least-successful IT initiatives.

This paper addresses five critical decisions organizations must make when building a backup and recovery plan to:

  • Maintain protection, visibility, and control of applications and data.
  • Maximize utilization of established infrastructure, processes, staff, and budget.
  • Use virtualization to improve backup and recovery processes.
  • Create an efficient, scalable, future-prepared backup and recovery environment.
