Disk-based data protection environment
ESG sees being recovery minded as a four-step process:

  1. Think in terms of "3DR," the ESG framework that defines three levels of data protection.
  2. Build a data protection ecosystem, or continuum, within the 3DR construct.
  3. Grow that ecosystem over time.
  4. Drive additional value by layering in technologies such as continuous data protection (CDP), data de-duplication and snapshots over time when it's clear they'll add value to your environment.
While much can be said about each of these four steps and how, in some cases, the steps may overlap, I'll focus on the concept of 3DR and its role in helping organizations build an adaptable--and efficient--recovery-focused data protection environment.
