Increased Efficiencies in Remote Computing and Data Protection

There is nothing more basic to the DNA of IT than the drive for ever greater efficiency. Today, this is more commonly taking the form of reduced hardware requirements—with a corresponding decrease in energy consumption—through the growing trend towards virtualization.

The marriage of virtual machines, software as a service (SaaS), and cloud computing has allowed the organization to save significant amounts of hardware space, as it is now possible to run ever more powerful and space-hungry applications from virtual machines or remote third-party servers.

Advances in data protection and backup are allowing for a much more efficient backup process. Disk space requirements have been significantly reduced, while the need for tape backup systems has been eliminated altogether—a real savings in space, hardware, and energy requirements.

The process of protecting your your SQL server database has become simpler and more efficient as well. Software applications can now provide both local and remote database protection, allowing for quicker and more efficient data recovery in case of data loss or site failure.
