2016 Trends: Enterprise Cloud Backup and Recovery Takes Hold

Zetta Maps Out Trends Putting Pressures on Disaster Recovery Solutions in 2016

Sunnyvale, CA

Enterprises are beginning to fully embrace the utility of the cloud, and offsite recovery, as the most effective means of backing up data. Also, as virtualization continues to gain dominance, enterprises are finding their legacy systems inadequate for recovering data at the speed and currency they need in order to operate a successful business. In 2016, more enterprises will transition further to cloud-based backup and recovery to support a virtual environment and provide business continuity.

Zetta, a provider of enterprise-grade cloud backup and restore and disaster recovery solutions for businesses and managed service providers, examines the trends developing in enterprise requirements for backup and recovery to support virtualization, offering the following predictions:

“We are starting to see more businesses implementing a true disaster recovery/business continuity strategy for two main reasons: first, boards and senior management are becoming more aware of the exposure of not having a DR/BC plan in place, and secondly, new technologies are bringing big-enterprise type IT DR capabilities within the budgetary constraints of smaller organizations,” says Jeff Whitehead, CTO, Zetta. “In 2016, we expect to see businesses from small to large capitalizing on direct-to-cloud backup and disaster recovery to take advantage of its inherently offsite nature, which provides more resilient business continuity.”


Zetta is an award-winning provider of high-performance cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions that are a worry-free choice for businesses and managed service providers. The Company’s direct-to-cloud approach provides businesses a fast and reliable way to protect, access and quickly recover their business-critical data and systems—both physical and virtual, without the need for costly extra hardware.
