  3. 3. 3DR is more thanjust a check box in yourBusiness Continuity Handbook
  4. 4. 4Disaster Recovery: The Challenge
  5. 5. 5DR “is” a priority for businesses Of enterprises have indicated that improving disaster recovery capabilities is a high priority*• How would losing data affect your business?• How long would it take you to recovery from a disaster?• What is the long term impact to your company’s reputation?*Jan. 25, 2010 – The State of Enterprise IT: 2009 to 2010 - Forrester
  6. 6. 6 The BC/DR Challenges• Duplicate infrastructure isn’t cost-effective or scalable• Documentation maintenance rarely happens• Requires a high level of knowledge of the environment by the service provider• Data replication solutions, outside of snapshotting, is expensive• Many replication options carry the production problem forward due to lack of “roll back”• Failback is extremely time consuming• Moving the data is only part of the need• Audit and testing difficulties
  7. 7. 7 Definitions• Disaster Recovery -- The ability to react to a business interruption and recover information technology (systems, data, applications, processes, people) according to a plan.• Business Continuity -- The discipline of maintaining the operation of a business despite interruption of its processes, in whole or in part, regardless of cause or duration.• Recovery Time Objective -- How quickly can full operation be restored?• Recovery Point Objective -- How current is the data that is being restored?

  14. 14. 14 DR Past• In the 90’s, it was your one data center, backed up to tape – maybe disk, and outsourced to a recovery provider with equipment you shared with others. You fought for test time and planned your test rather than tested your plan.• In the early 90’s DR was focused on Disaster Recovery (post event)….today it’s Business Continuance through a disaster (resiliency or surviving through an event).
  15. 15. 15 DR Now• Many more options due to virtualization and improvements in replication• New Concepts Metro DR (Not the other side of the moon), Caching example, Containers• The big four has not changed RPO, RTO, Compliance/audit regulations, and DRPG• Network and SAN are the key components and where all the contingency resides (Compute becoming more like a cell phone without a SIM card)• DR has become essential to the business from a viability perspective
  16. 16. 16 Interesting Facts• Disasters are not always the result of high winds and rain. In the past two years, 52% of businesses experienced an unforeseen interruption, and the vast majority (81%) of these interruptions caused the business to be closed for one or more days. Source: Gartner• 80 percent of companies without well-conceived data protection and recovery strategies go out of business within 2 years of a major disaster. Source: US National Archives and Records Administration• For any business, large or small, the worst thing that can happen is an unexpected event that stops you trading or drives your customers away. Some 80% of companies that suffer a major disaster and don’t have any form of contingency planning go into liquidation within 18 months. Source: Lloyds TSB
  17. 17. 17 Framework for IT DR Strategy Network Design• Internal: server name and address switchover to DR site • External: WAN design for site-to-site traffic redirection• Internal: security domain switchover to production • External: WAN optimized for data replication and• Telephony: internal telephony switchover redirected production traffic Strategy Data Location Provisioning Protection Alternatives • Vaulted tape backups• Internal • Dedicated hot standby • Data Replication• Co-location • Repurpose cold standby DB log• Commercial Hot Site • Repurpose UAT/Test/Dev Server volume• Hybrid • Shared Vendor services SAN volume• Distributed Operations • Quickship Vendor Services Storage volume Internal Co-location • ATOD Replenish  Filesystem
  18. 18. 18 Market Trends• Optimization of internal Infrastructures to support the business in performance/profit AND recoverability/resilience (i.e. repurposing QA/Test/Dev for DR)• Executive focus on BC/DR in terms of compliance, security, social media, and business relevance• Data replication & VTL solutions replacing backup to tape• BC/DR viewed in terms of IT Service Continuity & Service Resilience• Power grid concerns and impacts• Outsourcing Production and DR increasing rapidly (Why?)

  21. 21. 21Disasters Happen. Do You Need Protection? 43% of companies experiencing disasters never re-open, and 29% close within two years (McGladrey and Pullen) 93% of business that lost their data center for 10 days went bankrupt within one year (National Archives & Records Administration) 40% of all companies that experience a major disaster will go out of business if they cannot gain access to their data within 24 hours (Gartner) Top executives say 10 hours to recovery; IT managers say up to 30 hours (Harris Interactive)
