International Data Corporation (IDC) research indicates that 69.7% of x86 systems were virtualized in 2014 and projected to hit 71.1% by 2018. This speaks volumes to the importance of having a solution that is optimized specifically for virtual machines. Furthermore, IDC research has found that application downtime costs exceed $100,000 per hour on average, and for others can be substantially higher.
In this IDC report, in which 1,244 Veeam customers were analyzed and surveyed, they found that IT managers place a premium on the following areas during the decision-making process related to virtual machine management and application availability:
- Simpler operations
- The ability to meet or exceed organizational service – level agreements for application availability
- Close alignment between virtual infrastructure capabilities and data protection product capabilities
