          Protect What Matters

          You need to protect your information systems, so your organization can continue operations in the event of disaster. However, planning for business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) can be a real challenge. Although hardware has become more resilient and virtualization has increased service and application portability, most organizations’ BC/DR plans still fail to deliver adequate protection.

          IT departments are tasked with creating BC/DR solutions and implementing the protection systems to support them. But without expert guidance and regular procedure testing, these plans frequently become a budget-consuming albatross and ultimately provide no value and no peace of mind. With today's heavy reliance on data and technology, most organizations that suffer a major extended IT outage will never fully recover.

          Key Ingredients in a Successful BC/DR Approach

          Disaster recovery is not just an array and a piece of software. It is a process, a methodology, and a system of governance. Sound approaches utilize technology coupled with process, ongoing testing, and adjustments to process and technology to respond to changes over time.

          Data protection and disaster recovery have converged in the modern approach. A data protection strategy is necessary component of any disaster recovery strategy. A disaster recovery strategy is a necessary component of an overall business continuity strategy. Organizations can no longer really separate these pieces. Sophisticated approaches to business continuity and disaster recovery combine data protection and disaster recovery into a single process.
