Minimize the backup failures in data centers

According to different analysts, “5% to 25% of the backup jobs are failing across various tiers of data centers”. This impacts data centers heavily in revenue loss and SLA-based penalties. Further loss of essential data deteriorates customer experience. Hence, data centers must identify the root cause and reduce backup failures. The top reasons behind backup failures in data centers are the lack of storage space, database permission issues, and linear processing of high-volume backup jobs. Data centers should leverage a unique solution strategy to eliminate these problems and create successful backups.
