Disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity are two IT terms that garner a lot of attention. The bottom line is that businesses need to ensure they are protected in the event their applications go down, whether due to a natural disaster, planned or unplanned downtime.

With winter approaching, now is a good time to re-examine your company’s disaster recovery and business continuity strategies from both a business and an IT standpoint. On the business side, it’s important to understand what downtime is costing your company, both in money and manpower. It’s also important to understand how you can minimize costs while maximizing protection. On the IT side, it’s critical to examine how applications are protected, how you will recover them and the impact of the recovery process in both time and potential data loss. After all, the answers to these questions could determine the success or demise of your company in the event of a disaster.
