  2. Are You Ready for This?

  3. IT Problems • Shrinking Budgets • Reduced Headcount • Greater Demands DOWNTIME

  4. According to Gartner… • Two out of five enterprises that experience a disaster will go out of business within five years. • While 85% of Global 2000 enterprises have a disaster recovery plan covering core technology and infrastructure, only 15% have a full-fledged business continuity plan. • Source: “What is Crisis Management?”Gartner Research, September 2001

  5. Business Operation Average Cost per Hour … $6.5 million Brokerage Operations … $2.6 million Credit Card/Sales Authorization … Pay-per-View Television $1.1 million … Home Shopping (TV) $113.0 thousand … Home Catalog Sales $90.0 thousand … Airline Reservations $89.5 thousand Cost of Downtime

  6. The Problem Level of Executive concern for disaster recovery and business continuity IT budget allocation

  7. Rapid Technology Rationalization (RTR) Invest Higher-risk but strategic investments Innovate $ Alignment with business objectives Relatively low-risk investments needed to promote steady growth ERP applications Enhance/Maintain Competitive Edge Leverage $ RTR identified short term savings RTR Savings IT infrastructure “Keep the trains running well”

  9. After 9/11 IT Priorities Have Shifted CIO's October 2001 survey of 320 IT professionals showed that companies will increase their investment in IT contingency and disaster recovery plans 54% will increase spending on DRP 46% will keep DRP costs the same 34% will increase spending in off-site redundant systems 31% will increase spending in off-site data and application backups 25% will increase spending in backup facility for employees 24% will increase spending in replacement equipment 23% will increase spending in remote access 23% will increase spending on virus detection Source: CIO November 2001

  10. Business Continuity must cover • People • Process • Information technology • Connectivity • Supply chain • Call Centers • Facilities • It’s not just the data center!

  11. Business Continuity Life Cycle Business Impact Assessment Business Continuity Strategies Strategy Implementation And Testing Maintenance And yearly updates

  12. Begin with a Business Impact Assessment • Objective • To clearly and impartially demonstrate the bottom line impact of systems and other disruptions on specific functional areas within your enterprise • Goals • To quantify the level of Business Continuity Planning needed to ensure rapid restoration of key business processes and resumption of technology based operations in the event of a disruption. • To meet the requirements set forth by customers, suppliers and employees

  13. Why is the Business Impact Assessment Important • Which processes and functions are critical, necessary, or optional for business survival • In what order and how fast these functions need to be recovered • What the interdependencies of these functions are • What the financial exposures are • The impact on revenue, investor confidence, customer service, goodwill, competitive edge, market share, etc. if critical functions can’t be performed

  14. Specialized Products and Services

  23. Recovering Data and Restoring Access • Automatically back up or mirror localand network mission-critical dataand user identities with integratedWeb and VPN services

  24. Levels of Data Recovery Mirror failover Mirror Function Tape backup offsite Tape backup Cost/data importance

  25. Recover Data and Restore Access • Automatically back up or mirror local and network mission-critical data and user identities with integrated services to immediately restore access to that data via VPN or even the web • Novell NetWare® 6 • Supports all leading backup solutions • Offers automated and cost-effective options for backing up data locally, remotely, and in real-time • Allows instant access to data files, even if network connection becomes unavailable • Offers remote management benefits

  27. Three Areas of Storage to Protect • Data center • High availability, reduce management costs and consolidate resources • Users • Back up valuable local files and enhance productivity • Create, share,find, store,organize one Net • Branch Office • Reduce storage, connectivity and management costs

  28. SAN Architecture for Redundancy(Data Center) • Disaster recovery • High availability • 24 X 7 backup • Scalability • Native access • Simplified management Mobile access Corporate data center Disaster recovery site • Novell solutions: NetWare, Cluster Services, Native File Access, Novell Storage Services™ (NSS) File System, iFolder™ • Partner hardware/software • Professional services Windows, Mac, UNIX, and Novell clients

Based on IDC Clustering Report and Novell Research Excellent Poor

  30. Integrated Services for Recovery and Access (Users) • Novell iFolder™ “We needed a central point of storage for local files, something other than a normal ‘Home Directory’ that would be available should another disaster occur. We needed something that would ‘back up’ the user's local data automatically because they will never do it themselves. iFolder to the rescue! We have our pilot group syncing their files to a server off-site automatically. It takes no time at all seeing that iFolder only writes the delta rather than the whole darn file like some ‘other’ similar products.” Steven Beyer, Consultant PC/LAN Support Securities Industry Automation Corporation

  31. Where is your corporate data? • Gartner Group, IDC, and Meta Group state that up to 80% of a company’s business critical data resides on PCs (Desktops & Laptops) • Up to 96% of all business PCs are not being backed up (Strategic Research Corporation ) • According to IDC, the mobile work force in the U.S., Western Europe and Latin America is expected to grow from 34.7 million in 2001 to 60.8 million in 2004. • 35% of PCs sold into business organizations are laptops (IDC)

  32. What the analysts are saying • According to John Girard, a vice president and research director at Gartner, "Enterprises can realize substantial support savings and productivity gains by selecting appropriate remote backup and restore tools for their nomadic users. Avoiding just a few disasters may justify the entire value of the investment."

  33. Problems of Data Availability • Your data is everywhere and yet, frequently not where you need it • If your computer experiences a system crash or is stolen, your data is lost – no disaster recovery Office Home • Your data is difficult to access from the Internet Mobile Hotel • You don’t dare store sensitive data on the network • You don’t want to change the way you access your data Cyber Cafe PDA Air

  34. What the Organization Needs • Critical corporate data on laptops and desktops needs to be backed up to the network automatically • Local files should be safe when they are sent to the server and should remain secure on the network – encryption should be automatic • Anywhere file access that increases the productivity of all users • Ability to consolidate the storage and simplify the management associated with network “home directories”

  41. Challenges of Distributed Offices • Customers want to: • Reduce $$ to support branch offices • Consolidate servers, storage, and applications • Have directory services for central management at an affordable price when spanning the WAN • Reduce costs of backups and administration • Reduce the need for IT staff in the field • Have disaster tolerance for the rural parts of their network without breaking the bank • Reduce costs of low bandwidth private WAN links – and leverage the Internet • Improve services to users on the outskirts of the network

  42. Enabling server, storage, and application consolidation Simplifying directory services for distributed environments Securely leveraging the Internet for WAN connectivity between central offices and branch offices Eliminating the data backupchallenges in remote offices Accelerating IT service deployment and access in the branch office Automaticallyprovisioning stationary, mobile, and visiting users in the rural parts of the customer network Novell Nterprise Branch Office Nterprise Branch Office drives the cost out of branch office infrastructurein a distributed enterprise by
