Loss of access to data and systems may quickly bring the value of a company down to nothing. Significant parts of a company’s value depends on its technology and data systems, so in case of failure, small changes in configuration may cost or save the company millions.
Systems and data recovery is facilitated by a synergy of backups, Disaster Recovery solutions, and local redundancy systems, or HA. These solutions comprise the capacity for reinstatement of complete IT operations at a specified recovery time objective (RTO) or specified recovery point objective (RPO). Shorter RTO means quicker recovery while lower RPO means less lost transactions and information during unplanned shutdown.
