Until very recently, businesses planned for “disaster recovery,” or how to recover after a disaster or an unplanned interruption of service. But due both to new types of technology that weren’t as prevalent before—from cloud computing to virtualization and data replication—and because of an increasing reliance upon data and 24/7 uptime, that sort of disaster recovery plan is much less common today.
Today, the focus of most business plans is business continuity—keeping the business running and avoiding the impact of disasters altogether (or at least significantly).
In thinking about what your business continuity and disaster relief (BC/DR) needs might be and how Digital Realty can help, it helps to first address how BC/DR in a data center might apply to you. If you meet any of the following criteria, it may be worth talking about and implementing BC/DR:
