Disaster Recovery: A Mainframe Perspective
Source: Hitachi Data Systems
Well-planned business continuity and disaster recovery plans and capabilities are critical to organizations operating in 24x7 environments. Avoiding any disruption to operations is a priority for most enterprises when faced with planned or unplanned real or potential outages. In addition to ensuring the ability to continue business operations, recent government compliance regulations and recommendations are driving businesses to consider out-of-region replication options, enabling them to continue operations or at least recover quickly from large-scale disruptive events. Technical solutions that address regulations and requirements such as these are frequently first developed for and implemented by large enterprises.
