  • Business Continuity in the Cloud THE LANDSCAPE TODAY Business Continuity Today • Approximately 40% of organisations use tape (EMC data) • A legacy practice which will survive for some time • Tape is cheap • Tape is familiar and easy manage (for example with patching multiple environments) • AWS Glacier rumoured to use Spectralogic tape libraries to help lower costs • Large organisations/companies operate large business continuity regimes usually for regulatory reasons • UK wholesale data centre market driven by banks seeking DR • Phantom trading floors near Heathrow airport • Many companies have no DR at all • sub 1,000 employees about half have no plans in place at all (Symantec survey)
  • Business Continuity in the Cloud THE LANDSCAPE TODAY Not Just RTO and RPO • Availability is underestimated • Read the SLA to make sure it covers everything • As data sets become larger, network can be a serious bottleneck • 10TB over 10mb takes 10 days • Data centre concentration • Some data more important than others • Not always the CEO’s email • HR, university counselor, sales staff • Endpoints may need back up (BYOD) View slide
