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.

If your organization runs VMware vSphere-based cloud infrastructure in your on-premises data center, but you have been reluctant to migrate applications to the cloud for fear of losing some VMware vSphere-based cloud capabilities, VMware Cloud on AWS solves this problem by seamlessly integrating your familiar VMware virtualization and cloud management tools with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Many organizations believe that moving their applications to the cloud makes it necessary to introduce new tools, skills, and processes.

No one ever wants a recovery to go south—whether it’s your first or 50th time completing a data recovery operation. But your organization will experience a bit more anxiety when it goes to perform its first recovery using a new solution. If the phrase “successful recovery”, in your experience, has applied to only a few applications or a limited set of files, it’s understandable that you may be anxious the first time you test a recovery of your entire environment. Know this: you can successfully conduct a full recovery of your environment the first time as well as every time thereafter.
