Businesses 'don't realise data protection benefits of VMs'

Firms are failing to realise the benefits to data protection that virtual machines (VM) afford, it has been suggested.

Nearly two-thirds (63 per cent) of organisations experience problems every month when they attempt to recover a server, a survey by Veeam Software has revealed.

Some 500 people working in IT security jobs and other professional fields were questioned for the survey which found that, with proper tools, almost half of all full server recoveries could be eliminated with VMs.

"IT managers often cite enhanced data protection as one of the primary reasons to virtualise, but the technology holds a huge amount of potential that businesses aren’t currently tapping into," said Ratmir Timashev, president and chief executive officer of Veeam Software.

"For example, it’s well understood that virtualisation can reduce the physical server footprint in areas such as off-site disaster recovery locations. However, virtualisation can also improve traditional data protection in more profound ways that simply aren’t possible in the physical world. For example, with instant VM recovery, it’s possible to reduce recovery time from hours to minutes. "

To enhance data protection, firms are using insurance to protect them from thefts and misuse of sensitive assets.

According to a new study, entitled the Global State of Information Security Survey, carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers, CIO and CSO magazines, some 38 per cent of firms have such an insurance policy in place.
