Enterprise-Grade Disaster Recovery Without Breaking the Bank


Published on

Until recently, enterprise-grade DR had been prohibitively expensive, leaving many companies with high risk levels and unreliable solutions. Now, many organizations are enjoying top-of- the-line disaster recovery at a fraction of the price, thanks to the rapid development of cloud technology. CloudEndure and Actual Tech Media are thrilled to present this presentation, with a cost comparison of 3 Disaster Recovery Strategies, and much more.

Enterprise-Grade Disaster Recovery Without Breaking the Bank

  2. 2. According to CloudEndure’s 2016 Disaster Recovery Survey, the biggest challenges are: Insufficient IT resources Budget limitations Lack of in-house expertise Disaster Recovery Practices & Trends Insufficient IT resources • 19% Budget Limitations • 17% Lack of In-house expertise • 16% Keeping up with the pace of change/growth • 14% Limit on our ability to prevent software bugs • 11% Cloud resource capacity •9% Limit on our ability to prevent configuration errors •8% Coping with peak demand • 7% Source: CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Survey 2016
  3. 3. But, why not? Just ask Delta Airlines - A mere 5-hour outage in August 2016 cost them over $150 million. Organizations today understand the critical need to recover fast from IT outages, application failures, malicious attacks to: • Ensure resilience • Stay competitive • Avoid regulatory risks • Keep customers happy • Maintain reputation Disaster Recovery: No Longer “Nice-to-Have”
  4. 4. So, What’s the Problem? “Why don’t all enterprises have air-tight, 100% reliable business continuity disaster recovery strategies in place?” “Can’t IT departments simply set up multiple data centers that continually replicate workloads and when a disaster strikes, just redirect to the DR site?”
  5. 5. 3 Disaster Recovery Strategies To answer these questions, let’s first examine the three main DR strategies currently used by enterprises, while focusing on the expected costs of each: On-Premise Disaster Recovery Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery
  6. 6. On-Premises Disaster Recovery Enterprises have traditionally handled IT disasters internally, but to keep an on-premise disaster recovery solution up-to-date requires a large investment: DR Infrastructure & Services: IT resiliency solution requires duplicate infrastructure to restore entire systems to previous state, incurring capital expenditures & operating expenses. Software Licenses: Duplicate third-party software licenses required, plus application or DR-specific replication software. Management Monitoring: IT staff resources necessary to manage & monitor DR software & infrastructure.
  7. 7. Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Due to high costs and the expertise needed to implement on-premise DR, many turn to third-party DRaaS providers for failover support in case of disaster: DR Infrastructure & Services: Normally more cost effective than on-premise DR, but very costly compared to the economies of scale of a cloud provider Software Licenses: May still need to duplicate licenses for applications so they’re available quickly during disaster. Management Monitoring: No need to pay additional on-premise IT staff, but must pay DRaaS provider. (Costs differ by vendor.)
  8. 8. Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery The revolution in disaster recovery began a few years ago with the advancement of cloud technology and the pay-as-you-go approach of public clouds. DR Infrastructure & Services: Keeps an organization’s data in real-time sync using lightweight compute and storage without duplicate hardware needed, until you actually need it. Software Licenses: No need to purchase duplicate software licenses for your standby DR site. Management Monitoring: Automation for DR, so fewer IT resources required to launch or maintain DR solution.

Taking a Closer Look at the Annual Costs Small Enterprise Large Enterprise # of Servers 250 750 DR Strategy On-Premise DRaaS Cloud-Based On-Premise DRaaS Cloud-Based DR Hardware $1,997,000 $378,000 $39,000 $6,818,000 $1,309,000 $118,000 DR Infrastructure, Licensing, & Services $1,284,000 $984,000 $205,000 $4,500,000 $3,237,000 $532,000 Total $3,281,000 $1,362,000 $244,000 $11,318,000 $4,546,000 $650,000 *Annual Costs
  10. 10. Is the Cheaper Option Necessarily the Better One? The Answer = It Depends Technology for cloud-based DR can vary greatly from one vendor to another Some cannot guarantee data consistency or support all of your applications Others may impact your server performance or deliver inadequate RPO or RTO The right DR technology should enable you to achieve the enterprise-grade resilience and performance of on- premise and DRaaS solutions, but with the dramatic cost reduction of the cloud.
  11. 11. Additional Benefits of Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery When using the most advanced technology, Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery provides additional benefits, including: Easy Testability -- Quickly spin up machines for your periodic DR drills without disrupting your source environment. Self-Service DR -- Configure your cloud environment, replicate your servers, and perform your DR drills whenever you want. Deployment is easy, and access to cloud resources is instantaneous. Flexibility Between Infrastructures -- Protect physical, virtual, or cloud-based machines. Use public cloud of your choice & easily move to a different cloud provider if desired.
