Have you ever experienced a complete system failure and then realized that you don’t have the correct hardware to be able to recover the failed system to? Or have you ever experienced a system failure and found yourself scrambling to get that system up and running when time was of the essence?

System failures are an unfortunate yet all too common occurrence, and they always seem to happen at the worst possible moment. To make matters worse, if a physical server hosting multiple critical virtual machines goes down, all the virtual machines go down too and the severity of downtime dramatically increases. Some of the more common reasons systems fail include hardware failures, user errors, malicious attacks, and natural disasters. Regardless of the cause of system failure, downtime and business interruption can cost your organization thousands and even millions of dollars in lost revenue and productivity if you don’t have the proper backup and recovery solution in...

Mistake #2: Installing a Backup Agent on Every Guest
As I mentioned in PART 1 of this blog article, I’m taking some time this week to talk through the common pitfalls in backing up data in virtual environments.  Installing a backup agent on every guest in the IT environment is one common strategy – and one that can result in higher costs from backup agents and unnecessary management complexity.
According to Enterprise Strategy Group, 62 percent of companies still backup virtual machines by installing a backup agent on every guest.  This has been a common strategy because of uncertainty about the ability to recover granularly, as well as the limitations imposed by virtualization vendors. 
Virtualization vendors have improved APIs to support centralized backup with...

With VMworld this week, much of the news and attention is focused on all-things-virtualization.  Virtualization is truly a game-changing technology and one that most IT pros are already neck deep in.  The benefits are obvious: increased utilization rates, increased business flexibility, lower hardware costs, better utilization of computing resources, reduced space requirements, power and cooling requirements and improved IT staff productivity.
But, like any game-changer, virtualization can also bring new challenges to IT.  This is especially true when it comes to protecting data.  So I thought this week would be a good time to explore some of the common pitfalls IT often makes when attempting to back up data in virtual environments.  I’ve identified the ten most common mistakes, but as I discuss through a series of posts this week, I would appreciate your input on anything I missed. 
Mistake #1:...
