SearchDataBackup: Disk Rules the Enterprise Backup Roost

by Tammy Batey – August 15, 2017

Capacity, scalability and ease of implementation top enterprises’ list of critical features they look for when investing in a backup hardware purchase, according to a just released TechTarget research survey.

A SearchDataBackup article by James Alan Miller explores the results of this survey. Slightly more than a quarter of the people who responded said they plan to buy disk backup over the next year.

When asked the most important features in recent disk-based backup purchases, 54 percent of respondents said capacity, 40 percent said scalability and 40 percent said ease of implementation.

The survey asked:

  • Which backup tools and technologies do you plan to buy in the next year?
  • What are the most critical features in recent disk-based backup purchases?
  • When are you planning to make your next backup hardware purchase?
  • What are the top drivers of new backup hardware purchases?
