Re: changes on the way?
We are starting to see different approaches to solve the problem. For example Exagrid is solving the problem by having a non-optimized staging area. This should work fine for many data centers. All they would have to do is replace that staging area with flash storage and they would essentially have the problem solved. In addition both Drobo and Nexsan cover this capability by providing a cost effective but non-deduplicated storage device. We go over this in some detail in this on-demand webinar:

Depends on your environment
The benefits of getting a VM up from backup quickly is very important but I think it depends on your environment if it is critcal or not. We have our VMs on a cluster and can move them from one host to another with the users not even knowing about it.

changes on the way?
George, do you see much industry movement towards making the changes you say need to happen with disk backup appliances?

2014 State of Unified Communications
If you thought consumerization killed UC, think again: 70% of our 488 respondents have or plan to put systems in place. Of those, 34% will roll UC out to 76% or more of their user base. And there’s some good news for UCaaS providers.
