Who’s backing up data? One more reason for cloud disaster recovery

If you’re among the 60% of organizations that don’t have a disaster recovery plan, or among the 59% that only backup data in one location, here are 5 good reasons to shore up your plan and include the cloud as one of your endpoint backup solutions:

  1. There’s no shortage of incidents that can cause an IT disaster, and most are on the rise: Environmental, cyclones and super storms like Katrina in the United States and Niklas in Europe will likely increase with global warming. Acts of terrorism fill news reports. And the cybersecurity industry's predictions for 2017 don’t look good, either.
  2. You will likely have a disruption in the next 24 months. Almost 70% of worldwide IT practitioners polled in The IBM Global Study on the Economic Impact of IT Risk said their organizations would likely have a minor disruption within two years and 23% said it would be a substantial disruption.
  3. The disruption will cost a lot and cause major issues and disruption to your business.
  4. BYOD (bring your own device) is increasing, but most employees assume the company is backing up their devices. Employees do back up their devices, unfortunately not the way you want. According to the Forrester survey, 67% of employees back up to their own USB flash drive, CD/DVD, external hard drive or server. So much for universal access. Not surprisingly, the study found that the top two reasons for adopting an endpoint backup solution were to improve business continuity and to protect the critical data employees are storing on various endpoints.
  5. Physical backup sites may not be accessible. Even if you own your own backup site, it may be wiped out or employees won’t be able to get to it.

Cloud-based disaster recovery has gained traction over the years because of its distinct advantages:

  • Self-service restoration for employees
  • Multi-site availability
  • More frequent backups
  • Improved recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs)
  • Cost savings on both storage and administration
  • The ability to improve continuity using Opex vs. Capex dollars
