Typical Business Challenges • Does my disaster recovery plan adequately protect my servers data and applications from man-made and natural disasters? • How much does it cost me to have my IT environment off-line, and how quickly does my disaster recovery failover IT environment come on-line? • Does the location of my disaster recovery servers provide enough geographic diversity to protect me from a widespread disaster? • How can I squeeze the maximum amount of useful life out of may CAPEX investments with out the risk of outages? • What happens when my aging servers reach end of life and need repairs or replacements? • How can I implement an affordable disaster recovery plan without capital expenditure, and not overloading my IT staff?
