Role of IT administrators in Business Continuity:

Consider a situation where you have migrated your business critical servers to VMware or Hyper-V environments for manageability, cost savings, or maybe, for better resource distribution. Though there is a built-in snapshot functionality, it is not a backup solution.

You need a backup solution.

You need consistent backups with recovery points for months or years. You need efficient storage management. You need intuitive UI. You need to address complex use cases with simple configurations. And this backup solution must have all these at an affordable price point.

Not too much to ask.

So, who is the one point of contact for a company to acquire a Backup Solution that will meet all their above mentioned requirements?

It’s practically impossible for an organization to try out all the vendors and choose one among them. So here comes the Sys/IT Admin. This person is responsible for the safety and security of the networks and ensures the business continuity without any err. Hence its not too much to say a SysAdmin as the Superhero of the organization. The one who identifies any possible threat and nullifies it, also ensuring it never occurs again.
