Zetta.net, a leading enterprise-grade cloud backup and disaster recovery (DR) solutions provider, recently announced a backup and restore planning guide that identifies four primary restore requirements to keep in mind when evaluating backup and restore solutions. The guidelines provide recovery best practices for managed service providers (MSPs) to help businesses handle the everyday mishaps of data loss caused by human error and hardware failure to the least likely, worst case disaster.
"Headline-grabbing events like a hurricane is what gets companies on the war path to address disaster recovery," said Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer, Zetta.net. "But it's the everyday human errors -- mistakes such as wiping out a file system or accidentally deleting a critical file -- that are the primary culprits of lost data."
Rather than adopt a solution that only addresses one particular area of recovery, successful MSPs are increasingly aligning with offerings that cover a range of restore requirements. Zetta.net has identified four primary restore use cases and solutions.
