The need to preserve and protect information with backup policies has not changed over the years of technology. What has changed is the nature and especially the volume of that information (and associated data services) making it increasingly complex to perform that task (and the most challenging, as is ensuring recovery capability).
This leads us to look for new models and data protection paradigms that make the task more effective, efficient, predictable … and cheap.
Business applications evolve very fast. The functional requirements are more sophisticated and we need to manage more non-relational data (photos, documents, images, videos …)
