Holistic backup management: A review and an implementation in the domain of scientific conferences

2.5 quintillion bytes of data are generated each day and the fact that you do not even know how much a quintillion is a good reason to try to understand which implications this development brings. One aspect of this development is the pressing requirement to come up with intelligent and efficient backup management systems. Such systems have a threefold aim. First, they must allow to secure the data against a possible data loss. Second, they should, if possible, reduce the amount of data that is used for frequent operations making the systems more efficient. Third, they must help to comply with manifold regulations that require archiving certain data in certain form for a certain time. Your task is to look into the available research on developing holistic backup management and to apply your knowledge in developing a backuping solution for a real world scenario with real data.
