Another must have feature of any modern Availability solution is self-service restore. Self-service restore is essentially a delegation, or granting the task of restoring files within the guest OS to users that have administrative rights. In many organizations, there are users who are responsible for the applications running within the VMs. These application owners are the primary administrators for the files and folders within the VM — so why would they have to go to a backup administrator to simply restore a file? Self-service restore allows these applications owners to log into a portal, search through the content of the backups for their VMs only and perform any necessary restores of those files back to their original or new locations.

Practice, sees particular interest and application in AML circles.
"There remain a good number of manual processes within financial crimes departments in financial institutions, and AI can help automate some of those rote tasks such as document review or alert triage," he says. "Due to investments in technology, there is a lower barrier of entry for midsized institutions. "And finally, there's this anxiety over the unknown - those risks they are not able to detect, that may be hidden using traditional techniques - so they're hoping that more advanced, unsupervised learning techniques can be used to identify those edge cases or behaviors that are out of norm."
