Join this informative web event to hear from experts at Forrester Research and HP discuss the top ten challenges for effective disaster recovery planning, how to quantify the cost of downtime as well as tips on selecting and implementing disaster recovery solutions.
When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow.
Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.
No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them.

It’s a fact: nearly 48 percent of first-time Disaster Recovery (DR) plan implementations fail due to inaccurate estimates of necessary resources. Due in large part to faulty methods of estimating resource requirements, such as analyzing logs generated by tape backup software, organizations come to conclusions that are drastically wrong.
Disaster recovery involves continuous data availability and much more. Companies that understand the key steps to ensuring smooth recovery from a disaster can choose solutions that meet today’s need and tomorrow’s.

The terms disaster recovery and business continuity planning are often used interchangeably but, when you think about it, one is much preferable to the other. While disaster recovery makes clear that the organization will rise again, it does not let the world (and your patient population) know that the business of care will go on during the recovery process.
