Tips for a Tighter Backup, Recovery and Archiving (BURA) Strategy

TS_Guest on ‎02-04-2014 05:06 PM

To understand why backup, recovery and archiving (BURA) has shot to the top of many IT organizations' agendas, you don't need to look much further than the tremendous growth of storage requirements in enterprises of all sizes. It's an ongoing headache for IT decision-makers -- about one-third of the respondents in a recent Frost & Sullivan survey cited it as one of their top concerns. BURA strategists face a range of other challenges, including shrinking backup windows, data duplication, and the proliferation of storage devices, Frost & Sullivan note.


HP storage expert Romuald Boutault was at HP Discover 2013 in Barcelona in December talking with IT leaders about the challenges they face and best practices for tackling them. Watch Romuald's video, below, for his take on the key success factors for a BURA program that meets the needs of the business, and the three types of KPIs that can help you document your strategy's success.



For a deeper dive into the whole realm of KPIs for BURA, you can download (pdf) Romuald's slides from his Discover presentation titled Best practices for defining and managing your KPIs for backup, recovery and archiving, below:
