The case for cloud-based disaster recovery
A recent study by the Aberdeen Group indicates that, depending on the maturity of their recovery operations, organizations can experience up to 4.4 business disruptions per year, with restore times ranging from one hour to more than nine hours. The business cost of this downtime averages $138,000 per hour. The brand damage is equally significant: service disruption can harm an organization’s reputation, especially in the online marketplace and in a world where opinions are shaped by social media. Traditional disaster recovery solutions do not always meet organizations’ need for reduced recovery times and improved reliability.
