“The news that MySpace has lost over 50 million songs as a result of a server migration is shocking. For any organization that is looking to move data and workloads confidently, implementing an IT resilience plan is crucial. Wherever data is moving to, owners will expect it to be transparent and fast, while allaying any risk to the data that is being moved. That’s it; that’s all you need to do.
Companies, like MySpace, need to start looking outside of traditional backup capabilities to develop an IT resilience strategy that can face the many challenges that are coming hand-in-hand with digital transformation. It’s imperative that businesses choose a modern, risk-free platform that can utilize continuous data protection. Combining this with the ability to move data and other applications freely across servers or cloud environments can help organization to deliver an always-on customer experience, even while undergoing major changes to its infrastructure, and ensure that all data is protected at all costs.” – Gijsbert Janssen van Doorn, Tech Evangelist at Zerto
