Disaster recovery guide: DR in virtualized environments
In today’s always-on, information-driven organisations, business continuity depends completely on IT infrastructures that are up and running 24/7.
In today’s always-on, information-driven organisations, business continuity depends completely on IT infrastructures that are up and running 24/7. The costs of downtime are huge and data loss can put a company out of business.
Data loss is not only caused by natural disasters, power outages, hardware failure and user errors, but more and more by software problems and cyber security related disasters. Therefore thorough security and business continuity strategies are crucial for modern businesses, minimizing data loss and downtime.
Especially now, as data centers become more and more software defined, these private, hybrid and public clouds become more vulnerable to these kinds of threats.
In this booklet, we provide insights into the challenges, needs, strategies, and available solutions for disaster recovery and business continuity, especially in modern, virtualized environments and the public cloud. We will also explain which benefits and efficiencies Zerto Virtual Replication delivers and how it compares to other BC/DR technologies. With this overview, we want to provide businesses with the right information to choose the best possible BC/DR solution for their situation.
