Data is the lifeblood of business. You use it to build products and interact with customers. Data is valuable which means that every company should have a disaster recovery (DR) plan to ensure continuous operations. Why? Disasters are no longer just hurricanes, tornados, and floods. Systems fail, people make mistakes, bad people do bad things, and health pandemics come out of nowhere.
The need for business continuity has never been more important than now. In a recent study on enterprise IT’s response to COVID-19, Evaluator Group found that “those IT organizations that had developed and tested worst-case disaster recovery scenarios were in the best place to manage through the pandemic.”1
So about now you’re saying “I get it. But DR is time consuming, expensive, and equivalent to buying a life insurance policy.” Generally, these are all true statements which explains why DR was reserved for mission-critical applications. But like so many other things, the cloud has disrupted the economics of DR.
