Don't let important data fall through the cracks
Businesses today cannot afford unprotected data. Losing key business information hampers productivity; creates application outages, delays projects, diverts resources and calls to the help desk, and harms businesses’ reputations with customers. And governments are increasingly requiring businesses to formally deploy data protection.
Often times the most valuable files are what users are working on right now. Being able to roll back to a specific point in time is necessary, rather than just going back to last night’s backup. Companies need sophisticated policy-based data management that enables them to focus on the data with the highest business value as well.
Although most companies have implemented solutions for protecting the enterprise data, data residing in workstations, laptops and file servers is notoriously under-protected – even though it amounts to 60 to 70 percent of all corporate data, according to some industry experts.
IBM Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files provides a real-time, continuous data protection solution for file servers and users-endpoints. Instead of waiting for a scheduled interval, Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files backs up your most important files the moment they are saved, in real time. What's more, it does this effortlessly and transparently, in some cases eliminating the backup window. You can specify as many as three target backup/replication areas for high-priority files to help you capture every save of a file when it occurs to help protect against corruption, file loss or system loss.
