2. Accelerate test/dev with easier access to backup data
As your organization embraces an agile DevOps model, you want to optimize the productivity of all of your solution builders. Unfortunately, the data developers need to speed application creation and testing is often too hard to access, slowing your developers down. In an agile world, this may seem unacceptable but it’s a reality for IT teams using legacy backup with inefficient processes that involve creating multiple data copies that are costly and pose compliance issues. A modern backup solution should accelerate test/dev delivery both on-premises and across clouds by making backup data easily and instantly available. It should support the quick zero-cost cloning, customizing, and tearing down of test/dev environments on a single platform, further eliminating fragmented, expensive-to-operate infrastructure stacks dedicated to development. Above all, data should never be an impediment to the pace of innovation.
