Snapshot: Users big on centralizing remote offices

Users big on centralizing remote offices

The move to centralize remote-office backups seems to be in full swing. Just shy of two-thirds (62%) of Storage readers indicate they've already brought remote backups into the main data center or are planning to do so. Compared to the results of a similar Snapshot survey conducted in 2005, a trend is emerging: The percentage of users backing up at remote locations has dropped to 47% from 54% two years ago, while the percentage of those performing centralized backups has jumped from 35% to 49%. And although 43% of those planning to make the move don't know when their project will finish, the same percentage of users plan to finish by the end of this year.
