Ensure Business Continuity
With a modern disaster recovery approach
What's the best approach in a diverse data environment?
Data is the lifeblood of your organization. Business continuity means data will flow regardless of a disruptive event, unplanned outage or simply dramatic data growth. As a CIO, you’re facing increasingly complex data environments, with remote sites, multi-cloud infrastructures and employees’ BYOD desires, making data protection and disaster recovery far more challenging. Add to this your responsibility for business continuity and it’s evident that investigating a modern disaster recovery approach is not just a thought experiment.
Let’s, if you will, take a virtual coffee break, and think together about what constitutes a thorough disaster recovery approach that will ensure business continuity in the event of a system failure, human error, natural disaster or even malicious attack. One of the first items to map out is where your data resides. Like most enterprises, your data is stored in a number of places, including off-site tapes, on-premise storage, virtualized environments, and private, public or even hybrid cloud environments. This necessitates a recovery solution that will seamlessly connect multiple data siloes to provide employees with a smooth recovery transition so your enterprise can continue to function.
Modern disaster recovery
In developing a modern disaster recovery approach, ever-shrinking recovery time objectives (RTO) for business critical applications like email and CRM, necessitate faster backups than what’s possible with traditional methods. Before you can even get to discussions on insourcing, outsourcing, cloud and cross site recovery strategies, you need a disaster recovery solution which can meet the recovery time and point objectives of your business.
Being in charge of the operational budget, you’ll be thinking of cost control, balancing the need for a quick recovery and efficiency against a realistic spend for the size and complexity of your organization. Whether you’re a one or two-site firm, or a multi-national enterprise, with dozens of remote locations, it is possible to develop and execute a disaster recovery plan that will match your budget constraints. Advanced technology in recovery solutions makes this possible today.
