  2. ? HOW CONFIDENT ARE YOU ABOUT YOUR SYSTEM TESTING? CONFIDENT ENOUGH TO ERASE YOUR HARD DISK RIGHT NOW AND RESTORE FROM YOUR DATA BACKUP? COLD FEET? Then it’s time you commit to “Always Be Testing”

  3. Why “Always Be Testing”?

  4. Hard Facts 1 $ • Most small to mid-sized businesses experience at least one system • downtimea year. • One hour of downtime costs a mid-sized business $74,000 on an average . • It takes 30 hours on an average for data disaster recovery . 2 1 1 Aberdeen Group 2 Harris Interactive Survey

  5. Hard Facts 2 • System • downtime is • unavoidable. • Disaster Recovery (DR) is likely to fail without the right procedure. • Testing quarterly or even monthly is not enough. • Tape, disk or cloud backup alone is not foolproof.

  6. Yet, most organizations believe that Disaster Recovery Testing is more trouble than it’s worth. DO YOU? Only 28% of small to mid-sized businesses have tested their backup at all*. Most resort to WORKAROUNDS to save TIME & COST… …but it really doesn’t! *2011 Survey

  7. Do you believe that without DRTesting your data and applications could be recovered successfully? Unlikely, if you haven’t chosen your Disaster Recovery Solution correctly.

  8. Choose your Disaster Recovery Solution correctly with daily real-world tests that are: Time-consuming Costly Complex A drain on resources NOT • Advantages of DR Testing • Assured recovery in minutes • Known, successful recovery of applications and systems [not offered • by traditional solutions] • No complicated planning & execution

  9. Constant Change • Remember, your hardware, software and systems are constantly changing: • Your data backup/data recovery must take • these changes into account. • Your disaster recovery solution has to be • updated to-the-minute. • Shortcuts, or traditional testing methods, • don’t work. • Without daily DR Testing, your data, servers • and applications may be in danger. For example, overlapping daily & weekly updates from Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Defender Definitions, SAP Security, Microsoft’s Patch Tuesdays/Extraordinary Patch Tuesdays, Adobe Flash etc. are altering your system environment constantly.

  10. Even the tiniest change in your IT system can increase the odds of a future glitch in your data recovery. • Ask yourself • Is there a chance that your rebuild from a backup will fail? • Could incompatibilitiesof hardware and software prevent a server from booting up?

  11. Vulnerability • Did you know there are many reasons • for failed recoveries? • Corrupted backup media (disk or tape based). • Tape drive failure – not writing/reading accurately. • Missing tape(s) in a series of tapes to restore. • New replacement of tape drive that can’t read older tape formats. • Human error.

  12. Are you sure your existing Disaster Recovery Testing is safeguarding your company's revenue and reputation?
