Business leaders across the globe may think disaster recovery (DR) is too expensive, too complex or that a disaster is unlikely to impact them. Yet human error, cybercrime or a natural disaster can cause their company’s digital infrastructure to come crashing down in a split second. Then what?
The Reality of Disaster Recovery (DR)
Every year, IT teams are challenged to do more with less. The number of projects, advances and business requirements for IT grows, and it is a struggle to fit it all into the budget. One line item that is often cut is disaster recovery. People tend to think “Disasters happen to someone else. We’ll get around to it next budget cycle.” The reality is that DR is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. IT has become a fundamental piece of every business and it is critical to be always available for your internal and external users.
