DisasterPrevention & Recovery

Tom Inglis and Jennifer Quan

What is disaster recovery
What is Disaster Recovery?

  • Disaster Recovery is the process, policies and procedures of restoring operations critical to the resumption of business, including regaining access to data, communications, workspace, and other business processes after a natural or human-induced disaster

The importance of disaster recovery in business
The Importance of Disaster Recovery in Business

  • Most large companies spend between 2% and 4% of their IT budget on disaster recovery planning; this is intended to avoid larger losses. Of companies that had a major loss of computerized data, 43% never reopen, 51% close within two years.

  • Rapidly changing customer needs that are driven by data growth, regulatory issues and the growing importance to access data quickly by retaining it online.

  • An ever-shrinking time frame for backing up data, which is burdening conventional tape backup technologies and leading to an increase in disk-based backup, data mirroring and high-availability systems.

How do you choose
How do you choose?

  • RTO (Real Time Objective): How long your company can survive without IT functions

  • RPO (Real Point Objective): How much data your company can credibly lose or re-create after recovery

  • The less forgiving the RTO and the faster the RPO, the more comprehensive your site choice needs to be
