Industry Research Reveals Major Disconnect Between Data Protection Strategies Across Container-Based and Individual Applications
Non-Native Disaster Recovery and Backup Solutions Adversely Affect RTOs and RPOs for Container-Based Applications
Zerto, an industry leader for IT resilience, today announced the key findings of a co-sponsored ESG survey and eBook entitled “Data Protection Trends and Strategies for Containers.” As containers continue to rise in popularity, organizations need to understand that they are uniquely designed and consequently require a specialized data protection strategy. However, the survey reveals a major disconnect in data protection strategies across enterprises with 75% believing container-based applications can be backed up the same way as individual applications are backed up. This disconnect not only risks increasing key RTO and RPO tolerances, but it also adds to the time and resources required for container-based application development and delivery.
For example, the survey showed that the average Recovery Time Objective (RTO) tolerance rates across survey respondents is 2.87 hours* and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) tolerance rate
