Planning for Failure: Why to Consider Azure for Disaster Recovery as a Service
"Disaster recovery is one of those afterthoughts, typically, in organizations," says Tim Harris, vice president of strategy and solutions with Arbela Technologies. "I think it's because of the perceived complexity."
As Harris detailed in a recent webinar for the Dynamic Communities user groups, recent research suggests that just slightly more than half of organizations have a documented disaster recovery plan in place. Moreover, a similar percentage doesn't perform any of type of testing or preparation of their business continuity/disaster recovery plans. Of those that do test, only a quarter can confidently state their tests met the target recovery objectives defined by the business.
