Disaster Recovery Plan Roadmap
Learn how automatic backup delivers guaranteed business data
protection and recovery—no matter the threat.
When ransomware hits, the average small business experiences two full days of downtime. One-third of businesses lose revenue and all experience brand and loyalty damage that’s harder to quantify. To stop the bleeding, most small businesses end up paying at least $2,500 to get their data back. But paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee anything. Plenty of businesses have fully complied with the ransom demands, only to have the ransomer increase the ransom request—or simply take off with the ransom and the data.
This white paper provides a basic understanding of the building blocks of IT and business continuity—from understanding the concepts of disaster recovery and information availability to calculating the business impact of downtime and selecting the right software solution.
This paper presents an overview of iSeries high availability to companies that are beginning to explore this powerful business continuity technology. The critical components of high availability solutions are detailed in this paper, including data replication engines, system monitors, role swap capabilities, and the importance of autonomic processes.

Traditionally, rollout of a new software version has been a critical and painful process. In the past, new versions were implemented along with a maintenance period (i.e., service downtime),
resulting in loss of business for that period. This downtime was generally acceptable when there were only a few releases a year. But now—in a more fast-paced world of hosted software-as-aservice (SaaS) solutions, increased responsiveness and daily or even more frequent releases—down times are no longer acceptable or a?ordable.
Continuous Delivery is a practice used in the software industry to automate and improve the process of software delivery. It is all about adopting practices to release high-quality software fast through automation of the build, test and deployment processes.

Your business is complex. Big data promises to manage this complexity to make better decisions. But the technology services that run your business are also complex. Many are too complex to manage easily, fueling more complexity, delays, and downtime. Forrester predicts this will inevitably get worse. To combat this onslaught, you can no longer just accelerate current practices or rely on human intelligence. You need machines to analyze conditions to invoke the appropriate actions. These actions themselves can be automated. To perform adaptive, full-service automation, you need IT analytics, a disruption to your
existing monitoring and management strategy.
To accomplish this mission, you need an infrastructure platform that can be highly optimized for today’s and tomorrow’s virtualized workloads to provide operational simplicity that allows you to move at the speed of business.
Unfortunately, a traditional infrastructure won’t get you there. A siloed environment requires too many tools and manual processes, which creates unnecessary complexity. That complexity, in turn, causes downtime, slows service delivery, and drains your IT staff productivity.

Learn how much money your business can save.
In an objective study commissioned by Microsoft, Forrester Consulting investigated the Total Economic Impact™ for small to medium sized businesses, with 1 to 250 employees, using Office 365. The study revealed a sizeable return on investment.
One business founder had this to say, “The productivity gain is the main thing for me with Office 365. It’s allowed everybody to be more productive, and if there is any element of downtime on hardware, it’s just a case of moving into another location, whether it’d be the next desk, office, or Starbucks.”

Disruption to your production environment is costly, and any loss of information can be disastrous. Consequences may include loss of revenue and company reputation, lower shareholder confidence, potential exposure to business continuity risk, or sanctions and fines for noncompliance with regulatory requirements. Organizations need an effective and reliable way to safeguard corporate information in the wake of an unforeseen downtime event.
Is a lack of availability costing your business thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars? Assessing the true financial impact of unplanned downtime may surprise you. Placing a dollar amount on this issue is often the first step and biggest motivator to meeting your ongoing availability requirements.
Imagine you had a friend that turned up right before something bad was going to happen and told you how to avoid it. Like if you don't attend to that looping job silently going about its business, the system in India will fall over and the downtime will cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars in idle work hours. Yes, a friendly forewarning wouldn't be bad. We would suggest employing a job monitor – it's your friend on the inside.
One of the greatest challenges to any advanced wireless operation is the maintenance of continuous and economical service. Today’s networks have evolved into business-critical services that organizations rely upon every day. However, unplanned remote site downtime due to equipment and power failure, and adverse environmental conditions can severely impair network service.
The cost of downtime and/or lost data can be devastating. For this reason, business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) is becoming a critical mandate. Virtualization can keep your business running through many types of planned and unplanned IT outages. Download this white paper to learn more.
How long did it take to get a permanent fix for your last network problem? Too long? Even worse, did you fall short of actually getting one? If so, it's not surprising. But because
of network visibility problems, chances are good that your organization is leaking real money in network and business downtime.
With this white paper you will learn valuable information on how to have this problem fixed sooner and maintain better performance from your Network.

Hear from leading industry analysts as they share top resiliency trends and top practices. Also see how Power Systems can build a highly stable infrastructure
Many manufacturers are pursuing the immense business benefits available from digitizing and connecting their factories. Major gains in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), reduced downtime, and manufacturing flexibility can be achieved with a factory that is digitized and connected.
Businesses need to plan for unforeseen events that can disrupt productivity, impair the customer experience, and possibly even threaten a business’s existence. A disruption every business needs to plan for is any event that destroys valuable data, inhibits access to data, or causes downtime of core applications.
Consider the staggering amount of information your company stores electronically. What if an unforeseen event destroyed all financial records, client contacts, and application data? You wouldn’t be able to send customers accurate invoices. Your marketing efforts might be undermined. You would lack key metrics for measuring quality, profitability, and more. The losses could be staggering.
In every aspect of life, it’s smart to plan for unexpected events. That’s especially true for two plans every business must have: a disaster recovery plan and a business continuity plan.
