Data Replication is the Key to Business Continuance (Part 1)

Written by  Robert A. Collar Wednesday, 21 November 2007 00:15

Overview This article is about replication of information, not just disaster recovery, and how it can help improve business continuance for users of Information Technology. While many consider replication primarily a solution for disaster recovery, the reality is that using a robust replication scheme reduces and even eliminates outages in data availability - planned and unplanned. Reducing or eliminating planned outages means mission-critical applications go on generating revenue and improving a company’s bottom line despite interruptions. By reducing a company’s exposure to unplanned outages, the company may be able to continue generating revenue even when the worst cataclysm hits one of their data centers.
