Introduction Businesses are becoming overwhelmed by the need to store and retrieve their data, which may live in the core data center, in the cloud, or at the edge of the network. Each location requires careful thought when it comes to data protection, data management, and performance—and the best way to do backup/restore to recover from outages. The Rethink Data report from Seagate ® shows the results of a global survey conducted by market research firm IDC. A key finding from the report is that enterprise data is growing at 42.2% annually, but only 32% of data available to enterprises was put to work in 2020–2021. That means 68% of enterprise data is not fully leveraged for business analysis and insights that could lead to better business outcomes. And edge data is not fully utilized either, with just 36% of edge data transferred to core data systems in enterprise data centers.

The role of enterprise data is expected to grow in 2022 and beyond, as companies use their data to transform their business. Because it’s so vital for business, it’s critically important to back up enterprise data—and to quickly restore enterprise data if it is erased because of human error, cyberattacks, ransomware, or natural disasters. Every organization depends on its production data for sustaining its ongoing business—and as the basis for making key executive decisions. Backup processes have an important role in ensuring data compliance, security, and data governance. The ability to analyze backup data is critically important in a highly competitive world, delivering insights to business units and ensuring data protection—an irreplaceable foundation for an organization’s IT infrastructure.
