Business Continuity – DR as a Service
DR as a Service
Disaster preparedness for information systems in organizations today is not an option – but necessary and more than ever.
A business continuity strategy must ensure the continued provision of critical services to the organization when an event occurs – whether it is a cessation of service, weather damage, terrorism, cyber, human error or any other case.
Studies show that most organizations that have experienced significant service disruption fail to recover within a few hours.
Analysts estimate that the direct and indirect damage caused to organizations in the business market as a result of downtime and / or loss of non-recoverable data is estimated at the global level at about $ 40 billion per year.
And what about a recovery plan?
A number of common problems in companies’ disaster recovery strategy
- There is a recovery plan in place but the project has not been implemented in practice
- The recovery plan is incorrect or not technologically applicable
- The recovery plan includes unnecessary technologies
- The program was not tested effectively (exercises)
- The plan does not meet the appropriate standard (regulation)
Implementing disaster recovery infrastructure (DR) is a challenge, the solutions are not always economical, difficult to define, difficult to maintain, difficult to test and obsolete quickly.
Using cloud technology is an excellent solution for realizing business continuity as a modern and up-to-date solution. Studies show that about a third of medium-sized organizations today use cloud solutions as part of their DR programs.
One study * shows that 89% of respondents indicated clear benefits using the cloud for this task. Moreover, 74% of IT people today who use a non-cloud-based secondary site for their business continuity – claim to consider going beyond a cloud-based solution.
