Carbonite Data Protection & Cyber Resilience e-book. All the tools necessary to protect any type of data

Download this e-book to find out how Carbonite helps businesses align protection with the type of data being protected.


Data Protection

Data protection is a balancing act between the need to protect data and the need to protect access to data. The trick lies with deploying the right protection across the different systems and types of data. IT pros need confidence that the protection they deploy can:

  • Restore business data quickly and reliably
  • Store and transmit data securely
  • Extend protection as environments change
  • Provide long-term survivability of historical data

This ability to protect data and preserve access to it during adverse events is called cyber resilience. Carbonite backup, disaster recovery and high availability solutions help businesses of all sizes and in every industry improve the resilience of their systems. From simple, secure cloud backup and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) to high availability and non-disruptive migration,

Carbonite offers all the tools necessary to deploy a comprehensive data resiliency strategy for any type of data,on any system, across any distance.

Destination resilience

With the rapid pace of technology innovation today, it’s common for data to be spread across a range of physical, virtual and cloud platforms, and across wider geographic distances. This heightens the need for aligning protection with urgency. By aligning data protection with urgency, businesses can ensure predetermined service levels for all types of data, eliminate unnecessary demands on internal resources, and maintain business agility, all at a lower total cost of ownership than with traditional solutions.

Determining factors

Several factors will determine the appropriate type of protection, including the nature of the system, the purpose of protection, and the procedures and technology available to achieve desired outcomes.

The nature of the source is a strong indicator for the type of protection it requires. A system that acts as a repository will require a lower level of protection than, say, a server hosting active, critical applications and data.

When determining protection, the ultimate decision comes down to outcomes. Starting with outcomes, IT decision makers can easily eliminate solutions lacking the minimum feature set.

Specific outcomes businesses seek to control include:

  • System uptime
  • Recovery speed
  • Data survivability
  • Document retention
  • Discoverability
  • Non-disruptive migration

Procedures and technology are additional factors. Rate of change and bandwidth will determine the need for periodic or real-time replication, or a blended approach that analysts now recommend.1 Geographic distribution of networks—combined with mixed physical, virtual and cloud deployments— also serve to increase complexity and demand for resources.

Read this e-book to find out how Carbonite helps businesses align protection with the type of data being protected.

Topics covered include:

  • Determining the desired outcomes for different types of data
  • Local, cloud and hybrid backup and what it means for recovery
  • Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) options for critical workloads

Deploying the right protection for each different type of data can help you achieve recovery objectives more reliably. It can also reduce the cost of protection by ensuring more efficient utilization of backup and storage resources.
