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Practice’ in Business Continuity (BC) no longer serves the new digital-world and organizations can’t rely on these outdated processes to reach their future objectives.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...

The modern organization is highly dependent on information technology, simultaneously and quite unintentionally, information technology has introduced new exposures which have deceptively seeped into every layer of the financial organization.  The likelihood that an organization will experience a catastrophic loss from an IT-service interruption caused by an IT issue is far greater than an interruption coming from some disaster or ‘black swan’ event.  Still, the key to survival is allocating the appropriate amount of resources to the “right” risks; while that may include planning contingencies for a worse-case scenario, to be rational about risk more guidance regarding the investment tradeoffs that mitigate risk.

The “Big Question” is how to optimize scarce resources today, to achieve the greatest reduction in future losses.  The Big Question two components: (1) which risks are the serious ones and...

From application recovery to data protection, Symantec provides solutions to help customers keep their business on-line.  One recent event that has everyone thinking and talking about disaster recovery planning is Hurricane Sandy.  We asked a panel of disaster recovery experts from Symantec to discuss best practices and real life examples of disaster recovery strategies that they have seen first hand.  The recording of that webcast entitled "Surviving the Wrath of Sandy: Is your IT organization really ready in the event of a disaster?" is now available on Virtualization Review.  Please register and learn how your peers are approaching disaster recovery planning.

Difficult economic conditions lead to fiscal belt tightening, however, the ever-increasing demand for data continues; accelerating the requirement for hardware to manage the data.  Big data and its appetite for hardware become prominent line items which appear like ripe, low hanging fruit to many cost-cutters.  Buying low priced, ‘good enough’ or mediocre equipment starts to emerge as an opportunity to reduce a burgeoning budgetary item.  Price of the hardware however, is only one part of the total cost equation.

Low-cost gear costs less not just because of limited functionality; it is lower cost because a number of engineering short cuts are taken during manufacturing.  For example, using lower-tolerance components that have higher failure-rates or removing redundant components are common ways to reduce production cost.   These short-cuts, however, negatively impact overall reliability and increase the failure rate....
