Executive Summary

Symantec conducted a survey on IT disaster recovery and high availability and customer responses revealed the following key aspects:

   - Business Continuity market opportunity exists for a distinct product that focuses on Disaster Recovery (DR) across multiple data center sites

   - Many customers have multivendor environments and there is a market need for standardized virtualization agnostic solutions (20% of respondents)

   - Per Virtual Machine and Per CPU licensing models constitute 90% of current DR product licensing schemes

 

Introduction

When a disaster, natural or otherwise impacts normal operations of a business, Disaster Recovery (DR) processes kick in to ensure that services remain available. The effectiveness of a plan is measured by how long it takes the business to recover the critical services (Recovery Time Objective or RTO) and how much data is lost in the...

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.

Few would argue against the importance of robust disaster recovery plans for your applications and services. Events over the last year or so have reminded us how easily service outages can impact an organization's revenue and undermine consumer confidence. At a basic level, the efficient recovery of services is dependent on the availability of the data, and one of the most common ways to achieve this is through data replication to a remote site.

Veritas Volume Replicator (VVR) from Symantec is a replication solution over IP that maintains a consistent copy of your application data at remote sites. Synchronous and asynchronous modes of replication are supported and a bunker option provides a zero recovery point objective for asynchronous configurations. As a host based replication solution, VVR is independent of both application and storage and supports up to 32 remote locations (at any distance) making it a truly flexible and scalable solution.

VVR is an extension...

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...

For some organizations, the idea of virtualizing their mission critical applications is perceived to be more riskier and its advantages are not yet compelling to make the switch.  In fact, according to Symantec's latest Virtualization and Evolution to the Cloud Survey, 40% of CEOs and 42% of CFOs are reluctant to make the leap to virtualization.  Some of the cited reservations are around downtime and the lack of visibility into virtualized environments.  However, IT users can get around these challenges by making sure that they deploy virtualization tools that are suited for their particular needs. A foolproof virtualization plan can deliver cost savings, efficiency, increased productivity, high availability, disaster recovery, etc.  Recently, Dan Lamorena, Product Marketing Director within Symantec's Storage and Availability Management Group authored an article in the ...

The sixth annual Symantec Disaster Recovery Study demonstrates the challenges that data center managers have in managing disparate virtual, physical and cloud resources. These ever-changing resources add complexity for organizations protecting and recovering mission-critical applications and data. In fact, the data found virtual machines are not properly protected due to resource and other storage constraints that hamper backups.

Check out the 2010 Symantec Disaster Recovery Study.
