Data Protection Trends 2024 Report


Reliability and consistency (of protecting IaaS and SaaS alongside datacenter servers) are key drivers for improving data protection.

Get Your Data Out of the Building

While disk-based backups within the same locale as the production data remains the most agile way to restore, there continues to be massive interest in complementing those disk repositories with tapes and/or cloud repositories in 2024:

  • 52% of production data is also backed up to tapes
  • 61% of production data is also backed up to clouds

Of the 1,200 organizations, only 4 respondents did not use tape somewhere in their data protection strategy and not one claimed to not use cloud repositories. Elsewhere in the survey, 88% were either very likely or almost certain to use a BaaS or DRaaS for at least some of their production servers.

One of the most impressive trends over the past 5 years has been the increase in BC/DR readiness, in large part due to leveraging cloud-based infrastructure in lieu of a secondary physical data center or traditional hotsite:

  • From 2020 through 2026, roughly 28% (+/- 2%) maintain secondary datacenters with DR capabilities
  • In 2020, 23% utilized cloud-hosted infrastructure as their DR site, with that expected to double to 47% by 2026

It is exciting to see that while only half (52%) of organizations had a BC/DR capability in 2020, 3/4ths (74%) will by 2026. It is notable that for many organizations, their ability to be DR or cyber prepared are not just because of an agile or more affordable cloud site, but also the expertise that comes from managed service providers.
