The reason why intelligent disaster recovery is so important

Rethinking intelligent disaster recovery

The risks to data are countless. That said, intelligent disaster recovery is an important portion of cybersecurity and IT infrastructure for businesses.

IT Pro Portal reports that infrastructure for disaster recovery is expensive. The article notes that costs associated with these systems are prohibitive for many companies. Therefore, only larger and more established companies have been able to afford these systems. However, things are changing. The emergence of cloud technology and disaster recovery services have brought cost down and increased accessibility to more companies.

There’s a new approach to facilitate intelligent disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) growth. DRaaS has become more affordable with market development and growing popularity of cloud computing. For example, by using a service provider, companies can avoid maintenance of secondary sites and infrastructure. In addition, companies can utilize financial and staff resources for other areas, rather than keeping a self-maintained disaster recovery system. Furthermore, service providers implement processes that are in line with regulatory compliance requirements that are present in many industries.

Businesses need intelligent disaster recovery plans.

A survey on business continuity released by Gartner in 2015 indicates that 72 percent of respondent companies had utilized their respective IT disaster recovery plans. Another survey, released by Sigma, noted that natural and man-made disasters accounted for $110 billion in economic losses on a global scale throughout 2014.
