ESG Lab evaluated the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance from Oracle with a focus on its ability to deliver reliable data protection by recovering Oracle databases to any point in time with sub-second RPO in a highly scalable scale-out solution that is easy to use and manage.
Year after year, ESG respondents consistently cite improving data backup and recovery among the top IT priorities in our annual spending intentions survey (including 2016’s iteration). Why? Because when unforeseen infrastructure failures or data corruptions occur, the ability to restore not only business-critical information but also application and end-user access to that information become paramount. Lost or prolonged inaccessibility to business-critical data and applications most often means lost revenue and productivity to the business, and possibly the inability to meet regulatory requirements.
Improving data backup and recovery continues to be a top priority among senior IT decision makers, as highlighted in a 2015 IT Spending Intentions survey conducted by ESG. Organizations plan to invest in modernizing data protection, including the cloud. Learn the key considerations when evaluating a cloud-extended data protection solution that provides security, efficiency, effectiveness, and risk mitigation.

Collaboration services, email, managed services, and backups and disaster recovery are the most common current use cases for cloud services, according to the results of a new SANS survey on cloud security. The 485 IT professionals who participated in the survey reported using a variety of cloud providers and service models, including software-as-aservice (SaaS) cloud offerings, along with a fairly even mix of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) implementations. Most respondents said they are investing in both public and private clouds as needs dictate.
In January 2016, 141 professionals — directors, CIOs and managers of large, small and mid-sized companies — were surveyed for a comprehensive disaster recovery (DR) survey. The results of this survey reveal some important truths about DR, backup, availability goals, downtime costs, and responses. For instance, did you know the top risk to system availability continues to be human error? This benchmark survey report reviews the challenges and best practices of companies using or looking to implement DR solutions. Read this report to compare your DR experiences with those of your peers.
