AI in Your DR – Should You, or Shouldn’t You?

Artificial intelligence is finding its way into many applications and systems, so why not disaster recovery? The advantages are multiple.

AI tools and techniques can automate DR procedures to make them faster than manual intervention, while keeping them reliable and intelligent – for example, by making choices according to incidents or circumstances.

They can help estimate times to complete recovery. Advanced systems can learn from past situations (machine learning) and recognise problems likely to arise in the future, which can then be mitigated or avoided before they happen.
