Meeting the organization’s high recovery point and recovery time expectations is no longer enough. Now organizations are beginning to pay attention to the performance of an application in its recovered state. Backup and replication applications enable secondary storage or the cloud to “stand-in” for primary storage in the event of a failure, allowing for a significant reduction in recovery time objectives (RTO). But IT planners need to communicate the recovered performance expectation (RPE) of the application while the secondary storage or cloud is standing in for the production environment.
In this ChalkTalk Video, W. Curtis Preston explains what recovery expectations are, why it is so critical for IT professionals to establish them and he provides some tips on how to meet those expectations.
Setting Service Level Objectives (SLOs) is a critical first step in meeting the demands of the always on data center. In our webinar, “The Always-on Enterprise Requires New Service Level Objectives“, you’ll see how SLOs need to change and why they require the establishment of new SLOs, like RPE, to make your data center “always-on”.
