With tornadoes, floods and other natural disasters routinely making front page news, it’s little wonder that IT folks are not sleeping as soundly as they once might have.

A new study involving 2,000 online interviews conducted by Coleman Parkes Research on behalf of CA Technologies finds a lot of IT downtime is still plaguing end users; worse yet, one-third of the survey participants did not have a disaster recovery plan in place.

As more businesses expand their reliance on IT, it’s surprising to see so much tolerance for IT downtime, especially in an era of virtualization that can minimize IT downtime, if not make it unnecessary altogether.
