The challenge in getting optimum effect from a virtualisation solution will hinge on management and back-up.Karl Sice, general manager Pacific at the IT company Acronis, gives these tips to what to include as minimum objectives for the next phase of virtual backup and recovery:

  • Management of virtual, physical, and cloud environments must be common, all-encompassing, and highly integrated.
  • Virtualisation backup should be integrated in the design of the virtualisation plan - not as an afterthought.
