Data Loss Case Study - Backup and Disaster Revovery
THE IMPACT OF NETWORK AND OR SERVERDOWNTIMEPosted on 08 March 2012.A failure of a critical Microsoft Windows application can lead to two types of losses:• Loss of the application service – the impact of downtime varies with theapplication and the business. For example, for some businesses, email canbe an absolutely business-critical service that costs thousands of dollars aminute when unavailable.• Loss of data – the potential loss of data due to an outage can havesignificant legal and financial impact, again depending on the specific type ofapplication.In determining the impact of downtime, you must understand the cost to yourbusiness in downtime per minute or hour. In some cases, you can determine aquantifiable cost (orders not taken). Other, less direct costs may include loss ofreputation and customer churn.The loss of production data can also be very costly, for a variety of reasons. In themanufacturing environment, the loss of data could affect compliance with regulations,leading to wasted product, fines, and potentially hazardous situations. For example, ifa pharmaceutical company that is manufacturing drugs does not show all of therecords of its collected data from the manufacturing process, the FDA could force thecompany to throw away its entire batch of drugs. Because it is critical to know thevalue for every variable when manufacturing drugs, the company could face fines fornot complying with FDA regulations.
Publicly-traded companies may need to ensure the integrity of financial data, whilefinancial institutions must adhere to SEC regulations for maintaining and protectingdata. For monitoring and control software, data loss and downtime interrupts yourability to react to events, alarms, or changes that require immediate corrective action.The bottom line is downtime is very expensive and preventing downtime is the most importantfactor in any business operation.Mike Rafferty Senior Account Manager Microtech-Tel email@example.com "Your Path to the Cloud"—A secure way for companies to connect people & data,improve storage capabilities, and control costs.
