Disaster Recovery Is Heading Into the Cloud

With relentless productivity demands, there's no time for downtime these days. Unfortunately, the vast majority of organizations spend at least an hour—if not two or more—recovering from a server failure, according to a recent survey from Quorum. Understandably, CIOs feel that the speed of backup and data recovery tools is critical, and they routinely test their data backup solutions to ensure good performance. (This is no small feat, since most organizations deploy at least three different disaster recovery solutions.) To further ensure that everything keeps running smoothly—even during times of duress—companies are looking to increase their investment in cloud-based disaster recovery. After all, with the rise of cyber-security attacks—as well as the continued threat of hardware failure, natural disasters, backup disk corruption and power outages—CIOs realize that they can't place strategy-serving operations at risk due to a lack of proven disaster recovery resources. More than 250 CIOs and other IT leaders took part in the research.
