Windstream DRaaS Checklist

  1. 1. RECOVERING FROM DISASTER—WITHOUT CREATING ANOTHER PLANNING Do you have a formal written Disaster Recovery plan? Nearly 3 in 4 global companies surveyed are at risk, failing to prepare for Disaster Recovery.1 60% of global companies surveyed do not have a fully documented DR plan and another 40% admitted that the DR plan they currently have did not prove very useful when it was called on to respond to their worst Disaster Recovery event or scenario.1 1 Disaster Recovery Preparedness Benchmark Survey: The State of Global Disaster Recovery Preparedness
  2. 2. RECOVERING FROM DISASTER—WITHOUT CREATING ANOTHER TESTING Have you tested the plan? Research has found that ‘self-hosters’ test their organization’s DR capabilities an average of once every six months; DRaaS users say they are able to conduct their recovery tests monthly.2 Many organizations today still struggle with assembling the skills, time or money to adequately plan and test their DR preparedness. cc 21% do not have the skill sets to effectively perform DR tests cc 36% do not have the time to test their DR plans cc 18% say DR is too expensive to test3 2 ESG Research, “Virtualization + Cloud = BC/DR” 3 Disaster Recovery Preparedness Benchmark Survey: The State of Global Disaster Recovery Preparedness
  3. 3. RECOVERING FROM DISASTER—WITHOUT CREATING ANOTHER COMPREHENSIVENESS Are all of your critical data, servers and applications part of the plan? More than one-third (36%) of global companies surveyed lost one or more critical applications, VMs, or critical data files for hours at a time over the past year.4 Nearly one in five companies have lost one or more critical applications over a period of days.4 One in four respondents said that they had lost most or all of a datacenter for hours or even days.4 4 Disaster Recovery Preparedness Benchmark Survey: The State of Global Disaster Recovery Preparedness
  4. 4. RECOVERING FROM DISASTER—WITHOUT CREATING ANOTHER RTOs Is there a clear Recovery Time Objective for each business requirement? 76% of survey participants said that they must be operational after a disaster within 24 hours.5 74% of respondents could tolerate up to three hours of downtime before they start suffering revenue loss.6 54% of those surveyed could not tolerate even an hour of downtime.6 5 Gartner BCM Survey: January 2015 6 CIOZone, “Reducing the Cost of Disaster Recovery”
  5. 5. RECOVERING FROM DISASTER—WITHOUT CREATING ANOTHER ASSETS Can you protect physical severs? “The consequences of a physical security breach in a server room or similar IT facility can be catastrophic, with damage caused to high value equipment, operational capability and a company’s reputation – not to mention its balance sheet.” – FMWorld, “The Importance of Physical Security” “Data centers need redundant utilities so if one system fails, there is a backup. This includes water, power, telephone lines and air filtration systems. Battery backups also are essential to ensure security systems; heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC); and other essential systems continue to operate in case of an area-wide power outage. Today most companies also have redundant Internet access to different physical infrastructures and providers.” – Stephen Lawton, “A Guide to Physical Data Center Security Solutions”
  6. 6. RECOVERING FROM DISASTER—WITHOUT CREATING ANOTHER FLEXIBILITY Can you customize a solution that fits your unique business needs? “Disaster recovery (DR) causes plenty of headaches; DR systems are expensive, hard to configure, difficult to test and quickly outdated. “Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), a cloud-based method, costs less, is easier to deploy, provides the ability to test plans regularly and keeps pace with corporate changes.”7 Depending on customer requirements, if not all data requires backup, an organization can reduce costs with flexibility protection.8 7 TechTarget, “Disaster Recovery as a Service Wipes Out Traditional DR Plans” 8 Techopedia, “Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)”
  7. 7. RECOVERING FROM DISASTER—WITHOUT CREATING ANOTHER PLANNING Do you have a formal written Disaster Recovery plan? Nearly 3 in 4 global companies surveyed are at risk, failing to prepare for Disaster Recovery.1 60% of global companies surveyed do not have a fully documented DR plan and another 40% admitted that the DR plan they currently have did not prove very useful when it was called on to respond to their worst disaster recovery event or scenario.1 1 Disaster Recovery Preparedness Benchmark Survey: The State of Global Disaster Recovery Preparedness
