Emerging Technologies

Do not ignore emerging technologies like the public cloud.

It was not that long ago that virtualization was a new technology. Now, the vast majority of data centers are significantly virtualized. As a side effect, this opens up new options for DR planning. The same is true of other emerging technologies. The public cloud presents potentially exciting options for DR that have never existed before.

For many companies, disaster recovery (DR) is still a mystery. Many of those companies probably say, "I back up, so why do I need disaster recovery" or "That sounds complex and costly, why bother." But when it comes down to it, today's enterprises are facing an exponential growth in data and applications that must be managed and protected. Cost and complexity force many organizations to settle for backup solutions, simply ignoring the fact that what they really need is comprehensive – but accessible – disaster recovery.

The reality is, there are DR solutions that can be initiated over a lunch hour — they can be installed in 30 minutes and can begin protecting applications and data within 60 minutes. The same solutions can deliver disaster recovery at 50 to 75 percent lower total cost than any other solution available today.

So your enterprise wants to explore a disaster recovery program. Where do you start and who takes the lead? How do you sell it to the powers that be? Marc Crespi, CEO of OneCloud Software, has outlined five tips to consider when looking for the right DR plan for your business.
