It seems each day a new acronym is created, especially in the “IT” industry. Just in the data protection area alone, we have “HA” (high availability), “DR” (data recovery), “TR” (telecom recovery), and the list goes on.
CIO magazine talks about “CDP” in a March 4th article titled “Better Backup and Disaster Recovery with Continuous Data Protection”. An acronym for “Continuous Data Protection”, CDP “refers to backup of computer data by automatically saving a copy of every change made to that data, essentially capturing every version of the data that the user saves. It allows the user or administrator to restore data to any point in time,” according to Wikipedia.
The CIO article discusses what CDP technology is and the multiple benefits of data being protected on a continual basis and easily recoverable. Check out the article and if you see any articles you think our viewers would find interesting, please share them.
