How do you prefer to acquire a new vehicle? Your preference could help you understand your choices when it comes to your information technology infrastructure. Are you the traditional type who likes to own your vehicle? You prefer to pay your car off in full and (eventually) enjoy not having a monthly note? Of course, as your vehicle ages, you’ll usually pay more for repair and maintenance. You could also outgrow your purchase. For example, how many of you started with something small and sporty, had kids, and then realized you needed something with a bit more room and cargo capacity? Hello, minivan (or SUV). Or do you prefer to lease and acquire something new every few years? You always have a monthly note to pay, but the vehicle will always be under warranty and repair/maintenance is often included for routine checks. What does this have to do with your IT infrastructure, especially your network infrastructure and backup and recovery?
