In today's global economy, many companies are increasingly distributed. That puts IT in a precarious position, especially when it comes to backup processes. Providing IT services to remote locations generally requires investment in local servers, storage, and networking. Even with all the equipment in place, supporting it is a whole different challenge. A new architectural approach allows IT to project virtual servers and data to the edge, providing for local access and performance while data is actually stored in centralized data centers. IT can now avoid the need to provision and maintain remote backup servers, software, and storage. By taking advantage of this new approach organizations can recover faster, reduce risk, and save money.
