    54% said they depend upon native database replication to protect against data loss within their next-generation database, and 42% take node-by-node snapshots.
 

The majority of organizations predict that their deployment of next-generation database tech will outpace traditional database deployment within the next two years, according to a recent survey from Datos IO. The resulting report, titled "Data Protection for Next-Gen Databases," defines next-generation databases as distributed or scale-out databases or cloud databases, including NoSQL databases. Clearly, interest in these databases is on the rise, with organizations now deploying at least 10 nodes for them—if not 50 or more. Subsequently, they benefit from greater scalability and performance, with lower cost of ownership. However, many still struggle with performance, availability and data protection issues. "IT application and database professionals clearly understand that for organizations to ride this unprecedented tide of data agility, they also need to innovate data storage, specifically for distributed backup and recovery," said Tarun Thakur, co-founder and CEO of Datos IO. "To deploy and scale next-generation applications, enterprises must be sure that data can be managed and recovered over its lifecycle at scale. To unlock the full potential of data, it is imperative that businesses fill data protection gaps now." More than 200 IT professionals responsible for app and database deployment, operation, management and architecture took part in the research.
