Defining Data Protection for Distributed & Cloud Database: A Versioned Database Future
The entire structured, relational, and schema-driven application stack is undergoing a disruptive change to now be real-time, high-volume and schema-less. Although the newer distributed databases have brought many advantages for application development, organizations must also ensure that the data stored on these distributed databases can be managed, protected and recovered. A point-in-time slice of the database is necessary for enterprises to protect their data stored on any distributed database, and until now, has been a manual and difficult problem to solve.
In this new ESG report, published in January 2016, the Enterprise Strategy Group will review:
- How and why many companies are evaluating next-generation databases
- Risks and challenges with data protection for new database platforms
- How “versioning platforms” uniquely address the needs of application owners, database administrators, and DevOps
