The 5 Things That Can Go Wrong With DIY DR

Avoid the Hidden Hazards of Do-It-Yourself Disaster Recovery

Everyone knows that it's critical to have disaster recovery. Without a solid disaster recovery solution, you risk losing data due to power or equipment failure, employee error-even from a natural disaster or fire.

The perfect DR solution can be expensive, and you might be tempted to scrape together a "do-it-yourself" solution to save money. Proceed with caution, because the DIY route can be time consuming and riddled with hidden costs and other hazards. Even with a talented IT staff and support from management, it’s easy to exceed your budget and compromise on the quality of your results.

So what are the potential hazards of a DIY DR plan? Download nScaled's latest white paper, The 5 Things That Can Go Wrong With DIY Disaster Recovery, and learn how to avoid:

  • The wrong colocation choice

  • Hardware/ software drift

  • Failed testing and compromised functionality

Just How Long is Down? Why Your Company should Consider a Guaranteed Service Level Agreement for Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery is about anticipating the worst: how, and how quickly, can your company get back to work should a natural or man-made disaster strike. It starts with an honest risk assessment that focuses on the likelihood of a disaster, the industry DR regulations your company faces and the length of downtime you can tolerate. From that assessment, the action plan emerges.

Join EVault experts Aaron Wiley and Matthew Seeley, as they present ways your company can address these issues and describes a real-world example. The Situs Companies (Situs) created a systematic plan for keeping critical operations up and running in the event of a disaster, which included setting the maximum downtime with a Service Level Agreement (SLA).

In this live webcast, you will learn:

  • The importance of a guaranteed SLA for disaster recovery

  • Why Situs re-evaluated its DR situation and took action

  • What changes Situs made and the results it achieved
