Modern businesses cannot afford to lose data. Whatever the cause – natural disaster, human error, or cyber-attack – data loss is costly and extremely risky to the life of a business.
The need for a disaster recovery strategy to ensure uptime, minimize data loss, and maximize productivity in the midst of any compromising situation is a necessary digital assurance policy for any company. The question becomes when a disaster will strike, not if it will.
Expanding your current data center operation to create a disaster recovery site is expensive, not only in the cost of hardware and software but in time and resources. The cloud has changed the rules for backup and disaster recovery. In fact, the cloud as a DR solution is a smart choice, since the cloud is more flexible and usually less expensive than implementing a self-owned DR site.
In addition, cloud infrastructure inherently enables easy and frequent data replication between sites and systems – another key component to maintaining data integrity and reducing RTO and RPO times. Because the cloud resources are pooled, the costs to deliver cloud recovery solutions to businesses are a fraction of the cost normally associated with a DR environment.
Every business is unique and has its own needs when it comes to Disaster Recovery. There’s no such thing as a one size fits all DR plan. That’s why it’s important to determine what’s critical to your business and your customers to make sure you deliver on your commitments no matter what. Then tailor a solution to help you meet those objectives.
