StorageShort: Is Your DR Site A Single Point of Failure?

One of the most overlooked aspects of a disaster recovery strategy is making sure that data is being protected while you are at the DR site. In a classic primary to DR site replication strategy, a primary data center failure means that all operations are running at that DR site. The problem is that the DR site is a singular not a plural. That means that in the event of a disaster that DR site becomes a single point of failure.

Watch the StorageShort below as Storage Switzerland Founder George Crump and Hedvig’s Rob Whiteley discuss how a single point of disaster recovery can cause exposure and how the cloud may not provide you with the protection your organization needs. The answer may be distributed storage.

If you want more information, check out our on demand webinar. George and Rob cover all the challenges of single point disaster recovery and how to overcome them.

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
