IT Disaster Recovery

An IT disaster recovery plan is critical to business continuity - a recent Gartner Group study reports that 40 percent of businesses that lose their data in a disaster go out of business within 5 years. In the event of a disaster, your company’s survival depends on the ability to replicate your IT systems and data. When your bottom line depends on uptime, continuous data protection and application availability are absolute essentials.

Disaster Recovery in the Cloud

Disaster recovery options open up for our cloud computing clients. Our managed cloud and private cloud clients can replicate their entire environment to a disaster recovery cloud with no special configuration or programming with our comprehensive disaster recovery solution, DR Now! DR Now! delivers 4 hour recovery times. 

Benefits of Cloud-based Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery in the cloud is the latest and most reliable solution that also happens to cost less than half of the production environment. It’s considered more reliable because the entire hosted cloud (including servers, software, network configuration and security) are replicated to an offsite disaster recovery cloud.

Plus, it’s faster – recovering your servers, apps and data into a cold site environment is entirely replaced by only a few clicks to spin up the replicated servers.

Disaster recovery as a concept developed in the mid- to late 1970s as computer center managers began to recognize the dependence of their organizations on their computer systems. At that time most systems were batch-oriented mainframes which in many cases could be down for a number of days before significant damage would be done to the organization.[4]

As awareness of disaster recovery grew, an industry developed to provide backup computer centers, with Sun Information Systems (which later became Sungard Availability Systems) becoming the first major US commercial hot site vendor, established in 1978 in Philadelphia.[5]

During the 1980s and 1990s, IT disaster recovery awareness and the disaster recovery industry grew rapidly, driven by the advent of open systems and real-time processing (which increased the dependence of organizations on their IT systems). Another driving force in the growth of the industry was increasing government regulations mandating business continuity and disaster recovery plans for organizations in various sectors of the economy.

With the rapid growth of the Internet through the late 1990s and into the 2000s, organizations of all sizes became further dependent on the continuous availability of their IT systems, with many organizations setting an objective of 99.999% availability of critical systems.[6] This increasing dependence on IT systems, as well as increased awareness from large-scale disasters such as 9/11, contributed to the further growth of various disaster recovery related industries, from high-availability solutions to hot-site facilities.

In short, all solutions offered by Sholove International LLC. are "Backed Up" and is an essential directive in the decision making process. If you select a vendor for cloud and they have NO establish in-place recovery program you may as well continue your current Cloud Procrastination Program! The technology exists today, it's simply a "Change Management" issue!
