Defining Continuous Data Protection – II

in October this year (2008) i had written about the way  Continuous Data Protection was being defined by some vendors to promote their portfolio of  backup and recovery solutions( https://inthepassing.wordpress.com/2008/10/18/defining-continuous-data-protection/). in the post i had stressed about evolving a more holistic definition of ‘data protection’ and developing a framework to facilitate the same rather than use the definitions and concepts forwarded by the different OEMs and solution vendors.

I recently came across a blog post from Stephanie Balaouras  from Forrester (http://blogs.forrester.com/srm/2008/12/the-numerous-me.html) which more or less agrees with my approach. the post highlights how the term “Data Protection” is being interpreted byIT Operations teams and IT Security professionals and the need to look at the term from both, security and recoverability point of view.
