Adding Fuel to the DR Fire

Click through for catalysts that are driving organizations to place great emphasis on disaster recovery initiatives, as identified by Paul Thomann, senior manager, Cloud Services Management and IT Resiliency at Datalink.

Traditionally, most disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity projects have been triggered by a recognition that natural and manmade disasters can strike at any time. Events like the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 9/11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina and numerous other high-profile disasters have highlighted the vulnerability of corporate infrastructure and data to damage or destruction, along with the need to mitigate the risk by implementing a plan for rapid restoration of critical IT systems and data.

More recently, other issues have been pushing DR planning to a higher slot on the priority list. That's reflected in the fact that 70 percent of IT executives at large U.S. companies responding to a recent IDG Research/Datalink survey indicated that they have disaster recovery initiatives on the table. Only security projects ranked higher.

In this slideshow, Paul Thomann, senior manager, Cloud Services Management and IT Resiliency at Datalink, looks at the catalysts that are reinvigorating disaster recovery initiatives.
