continuous data protection-01Since data is the lifeblood of every business, companies are constantly figuring out how to best back up their data. Backups are a company’s insurance policy for data loss. But when it comes to recovery, traditional backups can pose an issue: data gaps.

Data is a fast, ever changing business component. Traditional backups, though useful, cannot capture every detail of every change with their snapshot technology. When a business recovers from data loss, data gaps can still leave some paralysis when trying to come back online.

Gijsbert Janssen van Doorn from Zerto frames recovery from backups quite well:

“You can’t tell a fast-paced, constantly changing story with a series of still pictures - you’ll definitely miss something important. You need a streaming video story that shows every moment and captures all the details.”

When it comes to recovery, this “streaming video story” can be achieved. With Zerto, data is recorded in a continuous fashion – in real time. You can rewind and recover from any point in time with recovery points in single digit seconds. You can come back online rapidly as well – in single digit minutes. Your business does not have to be paralyzed during, or after, a DR event.

Now this continuous data protection strategy doesn’t eliminate the need for backups. Backups definitely serve a valuable purpose. The value of Zerto is when it’s used for critical applications that could cripple the business if a data loss event occurs.
