Enterprise data is now spread across physical data centers and clouds through file shares, shared storage, and even saas platforms and applications. Legacy solutions primarily designed to back up on-premises file shares and applications not only fall short in meeting the requirements of the hybrid and multi-cloud world, but cost time and resources and put their data at risk.

Improving reliability of backups emerged as a key requirement for the enterprises looking to replace their existing backup solution, shows a survey done by Veeam capturing the 2020 Data Protection trends. The second most common driver for change is economics, including both reducing software or hardware costs and improving Return On Investment (ROI)/Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The third driver is operational improvement, including both improving Recovery time Objective (RTO)/Recovery Point Objective (RPO). Service-level agreements (SLA) and reducing complexity. Beyond those three meta trends, cloud usage, as well as various form-factor/ consumption choices, round out the top drivers for change.
