Sustainable IT - Long-Term & Energy-Efficient Archiving of Data
Data archiving is exposed to special requirements as „long-term storage“. Compared to the usual investment periods of three years, energy consumption and maintenance take on a higher priority in the archive. IT components and providers must also withstand critical selection. We take a close look at the individual aspects and compare technologies.

Backup-to-Disk: The core element of modern data protection
Various technologies used for data backup have already been declared „dead“ several times. In addition to the perennial favorite – tape – hard disks have also been repeatedly slammed. Flash storage would replace everything, and disk backups would be a thing of the past.The reality is different: Disk backups are gaining in importance. In fact, they are helping to reduce the cost and effort of flash storage and „last line of defense“ technologies.
Fact check: When did backup become so complicated?
A backup serves to protect against data loss. If an original is lost, you still have a copy as a safeguard, as a "backup". Data protection could be as simple as that in a world without RTO and RPO, ransomware and natural disasters. But today, an IT administrator has to think much more about what a secure, reliable and affordable backup strategy looks like...
Protecting backups from ransomware
In 2020, the cost of ransomware attacks was more than $20 billion - over twice as much as just two years earlier. The average cost due to downtime is $283,000 - per victim. While ransomware attacks used to be rather broad and without a defined target, there are now much more precise attacks where the ransomware attack is sometimes even only a part of the attack. In this paper you will learn how current ransomware mutations also attack backups and what countermeasures you can take to protect against data loss.
