Once you add implementation and administering each new solution, it can become overwhelming. However, despite the hassle of upgrading, it’s a necessary to ensure that each part of your IT infrastructure is performing as optimally as possible.

After all, even if every other part of your architecture is current, just one piece with outdated software or hardware will bring the rest down and restrict performance. To combat this, regular upgrades are necessary, especially when it comes to protecting your corporate data.

Legacy backup solutions can’t keep up

When it comes to backup and disaster recovery (BUDR), there is no such thing as “good enough.” An outdated solution, which can no longer provide the coverage you need, will inevitably fail when the worst happens, leaving IT with lost data and in hot water with enterprise leaders, employees and clients.

Legacy backup solutions were designed with the past in mind, and with recent advances in cloud computing, there in an undeniable limit to what they can be adapted to. In addition, these BUDR solutions often feature slow recovery processes that are too long and labor intensive for today’s enterprise, which need to be back up and ready to go in minutes, not hours or days.

The fact of the matter is that enterprises cannot achieve the increased IT efficiencies that can be gained from utilizing the cloud, while still making use of legacy backup solutions.

For those enterprises already making use of Nutanix for its simplistic and easy to manage infrastructure, the natural pick for BUDR is Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV.
