Disasters happen.  In fact, according to the Munchener Ruckversicherungs-Gesellschaft, Geo Risks Research, 355 events, from floods to tornados to tsunamis and earthquakes occurred in 2011.  IT organizations need protection from such horrific events, but also those that are more common place, for instance power outages and equipment failures.  

Here are a few interesting statistics from the latest Symantec State of the Data Center report (available later this year):

  • 70% of organizations experience downtime from power failure (11.3 hours per outage)
  • 63% experience cyber attacks (52.7 hours per outage)
  • 26% conducted a power outage and failure impact assessment
  • Median downtime per outage in the last 12 months was 5 hours
  • Organizations experienced an average of 4 downtime incidents in the past 12 months

When most people hear the term "Disaster Recovery", they immediately think of data...

A big Thank You to all for taking time to attend the Customer Forum event.

In the "Best practices in DR using VCS & VVR" session, we discussed the following:

  1. How VCS can be configured to achieve an effective and efficient DR solution.
  2. What are the best practices being followed in DR configurations.
  3. How VVR can be effectively configured in DR configurations.
  4. How VVR can help prevent data loss using Bunker configurations.
  5. What are the recommendations from Symantec with respect to DR configurations.

All this is summed up in the presentation attached to this blog post.

Please feel free to comment and ask questions if anything is unclear or you need more information.

 

Thanks again for making the event a great success!

On a stable 3.5TB VVR replica after some problems the primary rlink went in DETACHED STALE and the data on secondary become inconsistent, so we decided to procede with a difference-based synchronization:

Many organizations believe that they have a solid and ready to execute business continuity plan in case of a disaster.  However, according to a 2010 Forrester survey*, “many organizations have lulled themselves into a false sense of security” when it comes to how they value their preparedness.  The survey also revealed that proper plans of planning, testing, and maintenance are not actively tested as often as they should be.  This lack of preparedness is a costly strategy in terms of revenue, employee productivity, reputation, among  other factors.  Specifically, the survey found that an average recovery took 18.5 hours with 4.8 hours of data loss.  In addition, according to a StorageCraft blog, in 2011, disasters cost $52B versus $10B in 2010.  These numbers clearly indicate that organizations must evaluate their...
