Data backup and recovery for mobile devices

Mkellett Megan Kellett Profile: Mkellett

With an increased number of people walking around with important data on their mobile devices, the need to back up and protect this information is popping up more and more in the data storage world.

But the problem many data storage administrators face is exactly how to back up the data they store on mobile devices, and what approach is the best for their company.

I talked to W. Curtis Preston, executive editor at TechTarget and independent backup expert, about this issue, and asked him the following questions:

  • What are the concerns about mobile devices from a data backup perspective?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of cloud backup for mobile devices?
  • What are the traditional backup solutions for mobile devices?

Listen to the podcast below for his responses.
