Data Protection Scheme

Definition - What does Data Protection Scheme mean?

A data protection scheme refers to the collective data protection tools, policies and procedures that protect against data loss in a data storage or backup infrastructure environment. It is used in enterprise data storage and backup environments to deliver robust and reliable data protection services.

Techopedia explains Data Protection Scheme

A data protection scheme uses data protection algorithms to eliminate or minimize data loss in a storage environment. A data protection scheme generally provides a higher mean time between data loss (MTBDL) than a RAID-based data protection platform. Typically, a data protection scheme helps in quickly rebuilding a storage drive and reduces storage protection costs. It uses a higher processing capacity of processors and data protection algorithms to provide enhanced, quick and cost effective data protection.
