Disaster recovery planning is an essential part of business competitiveness today. Most enterprises have experienced an IT or technology outage at some point, from power outages to system hardware or software failure. A 2016 Forrester study reports that more than 50 of companies are not prepared for outages caused by natural disasters, fiber cuts or failed software and firmware upgrades. The study also shows that while more than 85 percent of IT professionals have engaged in business continuity planning, there is a strong disconnect between BCDR, operational execution and business recovery.
One key to disaster recovery planning is network diversity. That’s where superior cloud solutions can help. From geographically diverse data centers to managed or hosted services and remote access, enterprises can adopt a variety of enterprise cloud capabilities to ensure uninterrupted availability, increase network performance, and improve the customer experience while freeing up IT for other key priorities.
