There's no other way to put it: Most companies have severely lacking business resiliency plans – if one exists at all. The numbers are truly scary. According to the Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council, 73 percent of companies are failing in terms of disaster readiness, and 58 percent rarely or never even test their disaster recovery plans.
Yet, getting the company's applications and services back up and running after an IT failure, whether it's a small outage or a major disaster, is one of the most important tasks an IT team could ever face. So what's the problem?
In the past, disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) solutions were extremely expensive to deploy, too complex to maintain and impossible to test for most IT organizations. And that's on top of the fact that companies deploying traditional approaches generally lack confidence that they will return to normal operations in a timely manner.
Thankfully, all of this is changing. Newer Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solutions provide features and cost models that can fit the needs of almost any IT department. In this slideshow, HotLink, which just introduced HotLink Managed DRaaS, gives six reasons why IT can finally gain the business resiliency needed when the inevitable outage strikes.
