Mission-critical data isn't getting the protection it deserves. A major reason is the failure of management to recognize the magnitude of the risks and the true ability of their organizations to respond. A lack of communication between those responsible for applications and storage allows undetected interdependencies to develop, creating disaster recovery gaps. Drawing on recent research, this webinar will examine the current state of DR preparedness and offer suggestions for providing your organization with robust protection that is aligned with your business goals.
In-House or a Service Provider for Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity?
Written by Marc Langer
While there is no denying the importance of disaster recovery/business continuity (DR/BC) planning for any enterprise that wants to minimize the impact of unplanned disruptions, it is also a given that there is no one right way to achieve an effective DR/BC strategy. An organization's specific recovery time objectives will drive the selection and allocation of technologies, personnel and facilities best suited to its own DR/BC requirements. Beyond choosing the right combination of tape-, disk- or cloud-based backup, for most organizations the overall approach to disaster recovery involves an even more fundamental decision: whether to manage and perform the entire process in-house or to outsource selected functions to a qualified service provider.
