Arcserve provides three predictions for 2019 and their impact over the next 12 months:
Public cloud envy ends as sticker shock sets in
More organizations will scale back from using public clouds for disaster recovery and instead, leverage hybrid cloud strategies and cloud service providers who offer private cloud solutions with predictable cost models.
AI-powered solutions help IT teams work smarter
Organisations can expect data protection solutions to go beyond real-time insight and incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities that can predict and avert unplanned downtime from physical disasters before they happen. These solutions will automate DR processes, intelligently restoring the most frequently accessed, cross-functional or critical data first and proactively replicate it to the cloud before a downtime event occurs.
Cost concerns drive uptick of self-managed DRaaS in channel community
The “as-a-service” model is growing at lightning speed, and this trend will continue in the next 12 months. Specifically, self-managed Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) will increase in prominence as organizations seek to realize the cloud’s full value as a DR option with a lower investment than managed DRaaS.
“It’s clear that companies are getting serious about data protection and will invest a significant amount of time and money into making sure they have the rights tools, resources and services to keep their invaluable corporate data safe, However, if 2018 showed us anything, it’s that businesses still need quite a bit of education when it comes to managing their data in a cost-effective and efficient way. It’s going to be interesting to see how leaders address and rectify the challenges they previously faced as they head into 2019” said Oussama El-Hilali, VP Products at Arcserve.
