The Cost of Downtime is Substantial
Organizations’ growing reliance on data means even the shortest of downtime (unavailability of data/ IT applications) can result in business operations coming to a standstill. Even brief periods of downtime can have a substantially negative impact on business. The inability to deliver data to meet customer expectations and satisfaction can lead to a significant monetary loss. With the power and speed of social media, users can make or break perceptions of the quality of a brand in moments with a message that will instantly reach millions of other potential users.
Providing a stable and consistent user experience that is always available is pivotal to an organization’s success. This requires a plan to ensure in the event of a disaster there will be business continuity and an uninterrupted user experience. Disasters can be man-made or natural, so it’s important to build a disaster recovery and backup plan addresses both types of potential disruptions.

Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery is a Game Changer
Across the industries, cloud computing has become a mainstream platform to run an extensive list of enterprise applications and workloads. Disaster recovery in the cloud is also gaining momentum as a viable solution for disaster recovery and backup. Cloud is a flexible, faster, and cost-effective platform to build and manage disaster recovery solutions. Cloud empowers businesses to enable automated virtualization platforms to add supplementary data sharing resources to effectively handle disaster recovery. Most importantly, cloud-based disaster recovery solutions can help organizations reduce complexity of the recovery. Because virtual servers are hardware independent, applications, OS, patches and data can be quickly transferred from one data location to another without the need to reload each component of the server, allowing for a more expedient recovery and reduced impact to the business.
Cloud means business: Many IT professionals, believe that a cloud-based disaster recovery platform is more reliable when compared to a traditional on-premises solution. Cloud-based DR solutions give them added confidence that their business can recover quickly and with minimal impact in the event of an unplanned outage.
