Cloud Disaster Recovery
Typical Business ChallengesHow much does it cost me to have my IT environmentoff-line, and how quickly does my disaster recoveryfailover IT environment come on-line?How can I implement an affordabledisaster recovery plan without capitalexpenditure, and not overloading myIT staff?Does my disaster recovery plan adequately protectmy servers data and applications from man-madeand natural disasters?Does the location of my disaster recoveryservers provide enough geographic diversity toprotect me from a widespread disaster?How can I squeeze the maximum amount ofuseful life out of may CAPEX investments without the risk of outages?What happens when my aging servers reachend of life and need repairs or replacements?
Can You afford a Disaster?Organizations have experienced application and data lossover the past year4100%Forty-three percent of companies that experience a majordata loss do not reopen143%80%Companies are out of business within two years ofexperiencing a major data loss351%Companies that do not rebound from a data loss within onemonth are likely to go out of business in the near future2Sources: 1.
