In most companies today, the need for disaster recovery and business continuity plans (DR/BCP) that would safeguard mission-critical business processes, applications and data from catastrophic interruption events is not being addressed. Partly, this is a consequence of the assurances of hypervisor vendors, big data evangelists, and cloud service providers that their architecture delivers high availability, minimizing the need for DR/BCP. However, in most companies, data growth, combined with the introduction of new and unfamiliar technology, and the adoption, sight unseen, of cloud-based DR services are combining to deliver false confidence in the recoverability of operations following a disaster event.
In this session, DR/BCP authority Jon Toigo, will identify ten things that every business IT planner should be doing today to improve the survivability of his company in the wake of an unplanned interruption. Central to these measures is the deployment of a backup technology, preferably a Virtual Tape Library (VTL), to bolster the inter-nodal replication that may already be used in software-defined data center stacks today.
