Every so often, an architecture emerges that forces providers to change how they must design and deliver their products going forward. Its impact becomes even more pronounced when it stands to shorten product life cycles and hasten customer adoption.

Every now and then a phrase shows up in the tech industry that may hurt more than it helps. ‘Instant restore’ represents one of those terms. In my mind, the word ‘instant’ implies ‘occurs in a moment.’ In practical terms, from a technical perspective, that translates into a few seconds or perhaps up to a minute or two.

Unfortunately, the use of this term may leave organizations with the impression these products instantly restore more swiftly and robustly than they do.

Its IaaS offering, Microsoft Azure, now represents one of the top three general-purpose clouds while Microsoft 365 may well be the #1 SaaS offering used by organizations worldwide. Yet as enterprises utilize these cloud offerings, they still must protect the applications and/or data they host in these Microsoft clouds.
The data environments of many businesses have become so large and complex that their backup infrastructures can no longer protect all their data or meet their recovery time requirements. Achieving data resilience at scale requires a new approach.

This week I had the privilege of attending SC22, the supercomputing conference, in Dallas, TX. Supercomputing centers are early adopters of technologies that will soon be common in most data centers. Thus, the sessions I attended, the attendees I spoke with, and the solutions on display in the exhibit hall provided me with an eye-opening glimpse into tomorrow’s data center.
