While many of the basics remain the same, there are some things to take into consideration when thinking about data protection in converged, hyper-converged, and hybrid environments. In this essentials guide, you’ll learn about the difference between these environments, why you still need to think about data protection even though converged and hyper-converged systems are extremely resistant to hardware failure, why you need to approach protecting workloads on converged and hyper-converged infrastructure systems differently, and the top things to consider when selecting a data protection solution for your converged, hyperconverged, or hybrid environment.
