For you, like for many IT professionals, backup is time-consuming, and very often, simply a boring task. Backup should be simple, right? Take your data and create a copy somewhere else in case you lose the original. Yet, you have to spend time and effort to find the best solution, implement it, manage and monitor it, report to your manager – and do numerous other things with backup storage, hardware and the network – all just to backup.
You think to yourself: “All of this effort just so I can restore a file or a system some day?”
Well, there is more to it than that!
So, why do you really back up?
