Storage developers and professionals around the globe gather at the SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) Storage Developer Conference, Santa Clara annually to discuss on latest technologies, tools and tactics that is needed in Data Storage and Management. Also, we all know staying current with the latest technology can amount to good use of our dollars and time. It is the 11th iteration of the conference and was a 4 day event this September which was attended by 480+ professionals from our industry.

According to Forbes, 70% of organizations that were in the Fortune 1,000 ten years ago have vanished.  The natural question is why did this happen?  The simple answer is business agility.  These organizations were not able to adjust to changes in the business environment and were eventually crushed by their competitors or by changing trends in the market.  

Look at Blockbuster for example.  In 1992, Blockbuster was the largest video rental leader with over 2,800 stores worldwide and by its peak in the early 2000s, Blockbuster grew to over 10,000 stores across the globe.  Then the business environment changed.   In 1997, a startup called Netflix was launched with a completely different business model.  Instead of opening brick and mortar stores that people could rent videos from, Netflix mailed DVDs...

The pace of technological change and its complexity is challenging traditional business continuity paradigms.  What was once considered a ‘Best Practice’ in Business Continuity (BC) no longer serves the new digital-world and organizations can’t rely on these outdated processes to reach their future objectives.    These ‘best practices’, and the standards/guidelines which are based on these best practices are unsuitable for the modern technologically-dependent organization because they were intended to serve a different purpose within a vastly different business environment. Some might question or be puzzled by the notion that long-standing and widely-accepted best-practices could be unreliable, however, that really shouldn’t be so disturbing. After all, ‘Blood-Letting” was once a medical ‘best practice’; one that no so long ago lead to the death of our first US President.  It is time to modernize Business Continuity and align to the genuine...

I hear it more and more from IT professionals, "our key 'X' application just can not go down."  As you can image, the "X" variable in the prior sentence usually stands for a key business service or application running in the data center.  It might be cusotmer or partner facing website such as an ordering or reservation system, or it might be a service that internal employees use on a regular basis to do their job and keep operations going.  Regardless, if the "X" is down, heavy costs are incurred and someone may be in trouble.  

If you are thinking about how to keep your business up and running, check out Symantec's new Business Continuity homepage called "Run Business Run."  If you have a business continuity or disaster recovery project on the table, you can use the information on this page to give you the key concepts to consider before you...
