Why Read This Report

Advancements in virtualization, hardware performance, and efficiency have given infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders a wealth of options for delivering great services faster and more cheaply — and for surviving the plunge in global economic growth. But what about enterprise disaster recovery (DR) preparedness? This report outlines five trends in how enterprises are architecting their DR solutions today, including: secondary site configuration and separation, cloud recovery, tiers of applications, and causes of disasters. For I&O pros looking to improve their DR programs, the key is in process improvement. Rather than investing in the latest and greatest technology, focus on putting a solid framework in place of DR processes, and preparing for the most likely causes of downtime.
