For many companies backing up and restoring data is becoming a slow complicated expensive process. The volume of data to be protected is growing 30-60 annually while the amount of time available to complete backups is staying the same or shrinking. At the same time end-users are more dependent on continuous access to data for business critical operations than ever. Failed backups - which happen in 20 of tape backups - and delayed file restores drive down productivity and directly affect the bottom line. Deduplication technology is changing the economics of data protection by enabling companies to backup and restore petabytes of data without adding capacity--making the cost of backing up to a VTL comparable to physical tape.

SaaS is trending upwards. Business owners who want to reduce cost and focus on the core competencies that drive their business are supporting it. Venture capital is showing up in force and CIOs no longer seem too concerned about issues that plagued ASPs during the early days. Unfortunately, no one possesses the crystal ball that will allow the subscriber to see into the future. It only takes one instance of a disaster in the news to cause a shift in demand. Therefore, the only way to ensure that demand for SaaS will remain healthy is to have a SaaS escrow in place as a contingency plan that responsibly addresses disaster recovery and business continuity concerns.
