This white paper provides an annual worldwide ranking of international confidence in backup and disaster recovery (DR) readiness, capabilities and practices in conjunction with the Ponemon Institute.
Being fit for business is imperative for all countries participating in a highly competitive global economy. For organizations around the world this means being able to continue to operate in the event of IT failure or major disaster, whether man-made or natural.
Regardless of their location, IT managers share a common challenge, keeping their business-critical digital assets safe and sound. Few businesses today can survive a major data loss without a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery (DR) strategy in place.
With the adoption of virtualization, and the ongoing shift towards the cloud, DR strategies are becoming more complex. IT managers are now expected to keep data safely backed up in a hybrid environment consisting of physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. The shift has seen companies adopting several different backup solutions at various points in time. While it's typical to have two or three different backup solutions, it's not uncommon to have as many as five or six. Evidently, a hybrid world is also a very complicated world.
