Disaster Recovery…the right technology and the right plan
Among companies who lost data in a disaster, 50% never reopen and 90% fail within two years.

Many people have heard the term “Disaster Recovery” (DR) used in the data technology field but may not know exactly what it means. Basically, disaster recovery is a plan and a process for continuation of business and technology infrastructure after a natural or man-made disaster. Disaster recovery is actually a subset of an overall business continuity plan, which includes resuming the following after a disaster:
Disasters can be classified in two broad categories. The first is natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes or earthquakes. While preventing a natural disaster is virtually impossible, good planning can help reduce or avoid your losses. The second category is man-made disasters. These include infrastructure failure, hazardous or bio-terrorism. In these instances surveillance and mitigation planning are invaluable towards avoiding or reducing your losses.
As IT becomes more critical to every aspect of business, so does a potential disaster. Today, more and more companies are going digital with their most critical data such as customer records, orders, credit card numbers, and more.
A company’s data are is its most critical assets, and it’s at extreme risk in a disaster. That volume of data is increasing exponentially. According to the US Government estimates, the average cost per incident is $4.1 million or $128 per record compromised. Another major risk of compromised records is skyrocketing legal costs that result from those compromised records.
