Business Continuity

Business Continuity

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery measures are very different from lifebelt IT supportpure backup and recovery. As IT systems have become increasingly critical to the smooth operation of a company, the importance of ensuring the continued operation of those systems, or the rapid recovery of the systems, has increased.

It is estimated that most large companies spend between 2% and 4% of their IT budget on Disaster Recovery planning, with the aim of avoiding larger losses in the event that the business cannot continue to function due to loss of IT infrastructure and data. Of companies that had a major loss of business data, 43% never reopen, 51% close within two years, and only 6% will survive long-term.

Prior to selecting a Business Continuity strategy, an organisation should first identify the key metrics of Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for the principal business processes underpinned by IT such as ERP, CRM, Email etc. These metrics then form the basis for designing a disaster recovery solution that delivers a recovery strategy suitable for the organisation.

The solution must be affordable and fit within a practical budget. Whilst most organisation executives would like zero data loss and zero time loss, the cost associated with that level of protection may make the desired high availability solution impractical.
