What is your disaster recovery (DR) plan? Most organizations today do not have a formalized process. When disaster strikes, IT scrambles, hoping to pluck victory from the jaws of defeat. A DR plan prioritizes recovery efforts so that personnel can focus on recovering the most critical applications and their dependencies first. DR Plans also enable anyone in IT to guide the organization through the disaster recovery process. Not only does the lack of planning puts the company’s reputation at risk, but Storage Switzerland also finds that organizations without a DR plan often spend significantly more on data protection than those with a formal strategy.
The reality though is most organizations don’t have the time to create a DR plan. Even if they do take the time to develop a plan, they don’t have the time to maintain it and ensure that it is up to date. The good news is the latest advancements in data protection solutions include orchestration and automation, which enables organizations to create, maintain and execute workflows that guide the organization to a successful recovery no matter how severe the disaster.
