What Questions Should You Ask When Choosing Disaster Recovery?

November 7, 2015 / Evolve IP

Every year, one out of 500 data centers will experience disaster so severe that 43% will be unable to recover, and another 29% will be forced to close within two years. – McGladrey and Pullen. Here are 10 key questions you should ask when choosing a DR solution:

1. Is it ‘virtually ready’?
2. Can it support your mission critical needs?
3. Is it vendor agnostic?
4. Can it provide mobility and migration?
5. Is it application aware?
6. Does it add or remove control points?
7. What’s the learning curve?
8. How scalable is the solution?
9. What’s the performance impact?
10. Is it cloud-ready?

We published a revealing survey of 2,084 IT professional and executives about Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity latest practices, trends and challenges. The results clearly illustrate the need to move disaster recovery planning from “nice to have” to “need to have.”

The survey found that 34 percent of organization have suffered a major incident that has required disaster recovery procedures. The report also shows that of those experiencing a major incident, 11 percent experienced permanent IT losses.
