The Evaluator Group Data Protection Software Evaluation Guide is part of a series of Evaluation Guides designed to help investigate and evaluate storage technology options. These guides are for IT professionals seeking a neutral, objective discussion of the design considerations behind new products, technologies, and trends. Evaluator Group Evaluation Guides are not vendor sponsored. They are developed based on our review of technology options and strategic analysis of how they can best be used in today’s information storage environments.
Instead of ranking product offerings, an exercise that ignores the uniqueness of each IT environment, Evaluator Group provides a wide range of data points from which to base a detailed evaluation. With this information, Evaluator Group recommends that IT professionals review their requirements, starting with this guide and the associated materials available, and use our team of experts to make selections.
This Evaluation Guide plus the associated Interactive Comparison Matrix, Product Briefs and Product Analyses are designed to assist potential buyers in understanding the options and products available and to help match requirements to the available technology choices. Specifically, this document covers Data Protection Software. We also have complementary coverage of Data Protection Systems, and an overview of core data protection technologies can be found in a separate Technical Insights document.
