The Disaster Recovery Challenge
Organisations rely more heavily on their data and IT assets now more than ever before. Without access to corporate data files, email, and customer information core business operations grind to a sudden halt.
Recovering failed applications & IT environments is complex, requires great human intervention, and often takes weeks to bring the environment back online if at all.
As a result the need for improved Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) processes is at the forefront of every organisations strategic goals. Continuous business operation requires effective application and data recovery that can cater for both minor and major outages and adapt to your businesses changing needs.
The challenges organisations face when going alone
Organisations trying to find a BC/DR solution often have difficulty evaluating all of the criteria associated with a successful deployment. Some of the common questions faced include:
- What sort of replication technologies are available, suitable and viable for your environment?
- How do you evaluate the success and cost of any proposed technology?
- What are the hidden costs involved. i.e. second site setup & environmental costs, IT planning and unexpected infrastructure?
- What dedicated resources will be required to deploy and manage a solution internally?
- How does an organisation plan and cater for the varying changes in its data availability and replication requirements as their BC/DR strategy develops?
These challenges often leave necessary BC/DR plans on the shelf due to limitations of internal IT resources, Budget constraints, or the inability to find a suitable solution. Due to these common hurdles most organisations existing DRP & BC strategies fall well short of meeting their optimum recovery objective.
