The traditional data center is dead: How to win with hybrid DR

  1. 1. THE TRADITIONAL DATACENTER IS : How to win with hybrid DR
  2. 2. In today’s market, there’s no good reason for a company to build a secondary data center for disaster recovery (DR).
  3. 3. Clouds and colocation sites enable DR strategies to adapt in a changing IT industry…
  4. 4. …rather than holding them back with physical infrastructure limits.
  5. 5. To ensure your DR plan is performing to its fullest extent, consider the following steps:
  6. 6. Diversify the carriers with which you’re working.
  7. 7. Today,“hybrid cloud” means “multicloud.” Working with multiple public cloud providers helps prevent vendor lock-in and can increase IT performance.
  8. 8. Telco carrier diversity is also critical to data center success, and should be a top priority as you evaluate colocation options.
  9. 9. Use the connectivity benefits of competing services.
  10. 10. When carriers compete for customers within colocation sites, they’re more likely to offer the latest,greatest services on the market.
  11. 11. Lay out your IT team’s top priorities for the next year – and then choose a hybrid DR approach that can help meet all of them.
  12. 12. Set up your hybrid DR strategy for success.
  13. 13. DR in the cloud isn’t perfect. Networking issues, data migration and time constraints can impede an organization’s ability to withstand a disaster.
  14. 14. Cutting latency with edge computing and using a hybrid data approach throughout your organization prepares you to overcome roadblocks and reap ROI.
  15. 15. Measure DR success with RPO and RTO.
  16. 16. Hybrid cloud DR can bring down recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) – the time required to fully recover from disaster.
  17. 17. Compared to traditional backup methods, hybrid cloud DR gets businesses up and running before serious repercussions have time to set in.
  18. 18. Upgrade your enterprise storage.
  19. 19. Core functions of IT, like storage and DR, are now available as a service. There’s no excuse for the rip-and-replace data center infrastructure cycle.
  20. 20. Before you make changes to your DR plan, evaluate your IT strategy as a whole: from immediate needs and resources to ideal goals.
  21. 21. Given the maintenance costs of a secondary data center and the potential for growth with hybrid DR, there’s no good reason to build a data center again.
  22. 22. Instead, it’s time to embrace clouds, cloud strategies and the future of IT.
