John was a worried man, it was the third time his systems had failed in a month and the downtime that ensued led to loss of data, customers and business. The losses were too high, John had to come up with a business continuity plan to run business as usual.
Every company has to deal with the possibility of disasters, be it figurative or physical. When companies encounter major interruptions such as a computer virus, network outage, or even a fire or flood, business can be stalled for days, weeks, or even months at a time.
Data loss is an inevitable event – tomorrow, next week, six months, next year – it can happen to any enterprise.
- 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster
- 20% of small to medium businesses suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every 5 years.
- About 70% of business people have experienced (or will experience) data loss due to accidental deletion, disk or system failure, viruses, fire or some other disaster
We all know the statistics. We’ve all heard the horror stories. The bottom line is that at some point down the road, enterprise data is going to be in danger.
John knew he had to react to the situation and so he did his research and decided that his Business Continuity Plan needs to have disaster recovery on Cloud. Many of John’s peers advised him against Cloud but he countered them saying Disaster Recovery (DR) on Cloud is the best possible solution as it gave him the following benefits:
- Pay-As-You-Use Model
- No Upfront Hardware and Secondary Data Center Maintenance Costs
- Highly Flexible and Scalable
- On Demand DR Testing
John was able to confidently answer all the questions that his peers threw at him, he was so confident that he actually wanted to write in his DR plan “Disaster, so what!!!”
