How do you spell disaster recovery success? RPO: 0. RTO: under 1 minute

  1. 1. HOW DO YOU SPELL DISASTER RECOVERY SUCCESS? RPO: 0 RTO: < 1 minute
  2. 2. Unfortunately, enterprises have made a series of missteps when it comes to data protection and disaster recovery.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. After traditional data centers made way for cloud-only options, CIOs thought, “Aha! No more unnecessary spending! We’ll save big.”
  6. 6. 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. Wrong again.
  7. 7. Enterprises have not won at DR by chasing low dollar signs alone.
  8. 8. The metric that has always mattered most still reigns, and it ultimately yields lower total costs.
  9. 9. We’re talking, of course, about recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO).
  10. 10. When disaster strikes, your data can’t wait… and it no longer has to.
  11. 11. You can realize RPO 0 and RTO less than 1 minute – and still cut your DR costs by 50 percent or more.
  12. 12. 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.
  13. 13. In the meantime, you’ll shrink your IT footprint, lowering costs while improving RTO and RPO.
  14. 14. What’s the maximum amount of time your IT resources can reasonably be offline? What window of time is allowable for recovery?
  15. 15. 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 time objectives.
