How do you spell disaster recovery success? RPO: 0. RTO: under 1 minute
HOW DO YOU SPELL
RTO: < 1 minute
have made a series of
missteps when it comes
to data protection and
Back when secondary data centers were
supposedly the way to go, organizations
put their faith in remote locations, thinking
cheap real estate would equal cheap DR.
Sure, locations with redundancy and
resiliency across systems and utilities
cost more for rack space, but connectivity
economics – not to mention the ability to
sleep soundly at night – delivered value.
They were wrong.
After traditional data centers made way
for cloud-only options, CIOs thought,
“Aha! No more unnecessary spending!
We’ll save big.”
It costs a lot of money to copy, store
and access data in the cloud coupled
with migration challenges,
unpredictable processes and latency
timeframes for data recovery.
not won at DR
by chasing low
dollar signs alone.
The metric that has always mattered most still
reigns, and it ultimately yields lower total costs.
of course, about
and recovery time
When disaster strikes,
your data can’t wait…
and it no longer has to.
You can realize RPO 0 and RTO less
than 1 minute – and still cut your
DR costs by 50 percent or more.
How can you get these RTO/RPO SLAs?
Think beyond on-prem DR, beyond public
cloud and DRaaS to a truly hybrid approach
that makes your data accessible anywhere –
without redundant, expensive infrastructure,
software and data sitting in multiple locations.
In the meantime, you’ll shrink your IT footprint,
lowering costs while improving RTO and RPO.
What’s the maximum amount of time your
IT resources can reasonably be offline? What
window of time is allowable for recovery?
These are the questions
that should drive your DR
decisions. When Hybrid DR
is the answer, you’ll find
your costs will fall – and so
will your recovery point and
