Disk backup is popular for data backup and recovery. Companies can choose from a variety of strategies such as disk-to-disk (D2D), continuous data protection (CDP), and virtual tape libraries (VTLs). But what’s more popular for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to implement in their environment – VTLs or other types of disk backup? What are the pros and cons of each? And how does data deduplication differ between VTLs and other types of disk backup?
I sat down with Jeff Boles, senior analyst of Validation services at the Taneja Group to talk about VTLs vs. disk-to-disk backup in SMBs. Listen to the podcast below and let us know your thoughts too.
