Network Computing Comparison: Comprehensive Data Recovery

Comparison: Comprehensive Data Recovery

Your IT team needs to protect data in the cloud as well as on physical and virtual servers, PCs, and of course mobile devices. To that end, we asked a lot from vendors in this Buyer's Guide, from the ability to back up data from mobile devices, desktops, and physical and virtual servers to local and cloud repositories to the ability for end users and IT to restore individual files, directories, and entire devices or disk partitions on a self-service basis. It's a tall order, but the companies listed below pull it off. -- Jasmine McTigue
