Business continuity solutions designed to prevent downtime provide high availability to maintain operations in the event of a local system or component failure (e.g., servers or clusters) and disaster recovery to failover to a secondary site should the entire primary site go down. Until recently, however, the cost, complexity and operational intensity of business continuity solutions meant that organizations were forced to strictly prioritize which IT assets they could protect - if any.
