Executive Summary

The modern enterprise faces a dizzying array of business and IT challenges. But none looms larger than managing data and ensuring that it is secure and available in the event of human error or natural disaster. Consequently, business continuity (BC) has emerged as an essential component in any business strategy. The ability to keep operations intact and data available when confronted with a system, human or natural disruption is paramount.

Cornerstones to a successful plan are backup, disaster recovery (DR) and archiving. While focused more on day-to-day anomalies, backup includes making copies of originals for restoration purposes when needed. Disaster recovery - or high availability - is the replication of entire systems to offsite locations to enable failover in the event of disruption. And archiving is the systematic approach to providing structure to unstructured data while serving as the foundation for e-discovery.

Fortunately, lower-priced products and enhanced technologies are making backup and recovery processes more affordable, effective and efficient. This includes robust hardware and software from leading manufacturers that's more accessible and easier to implement than at any point in the past.
