The Evolution of Data Protection


The last ~25 years have seen a significant evolution of IT applications driven by new socio-economic trends, evolving business requirements and next-gen technology innovations. The client-server era of the 1990’s was marked by the rise of enterprise applications that increased workforce productivity. The virtualization era of 2000’s was driven by improvements in hardware utilization and interactive web applications. Finally, the current big data era is rooted in improving operational efficiency through automation and real-time data-driven business insights.

As enterprise applications have evolved, so, too, has the infrastructure stack (databases, storage, data management, et al) on which they are deployed and run. Specifically, data protection has kept pace with the IT application requirements and new data protection technologies have emerged. This cycle has also witnessed the rise and fall of several enterprise software and hardware vendors. Many start-ups have prospered by disrupting the traditional notions of storing, managing and leveraging data. This white paper characterizes the last ~25 years into three eras and details the changes in next-gen applications and related data protection technologies.
