In today’s 24x7 world, companies have found data back-ups are simply not enough. This is because the potential impact of IT outages is now greater than ever. In a recent study, IDC found over 60 percent of executives believed downtime has had a significant impact on their business performance in the last 12 months.
While the cost of downtime ranges widely. On the high end, lost revenue for a brokerage is between $6-7M per hour while outage for retail services are estimated at between 70-100K per hour. In either case the point is clear – even a few hours of downtime in business critical applications has a meaningful impact on a company’s revenue growth and profitability.
Yet IT professionals today, tasked with improving disaster recovery preparedness, face significant challenges. With flat budgets, higher levels of complexity, increasingly more applications to protect and shorter recovery windows, yesterday’s technologies and practices aren't going to cut it anymore.
In this webinar, you can learn about how organizations are solving these problems by leveraging advanced technologies, new services like cloud, and embracing process improvements. Insight and real world experience combine to provide an informative and practical webinar presentation.
Speaker: Scott Harris, Vice President of Services at Egenera will present in this informative Egenera Data Center Directions webinar.
