Backup is not Disaster Recovery
Many organisations fail to realise that daily or weekly backups and the replication of data from one site to another are not enough to protect against an IT disaster. True business continuity is all about ensuring your critical applications can be recovered predictably to deliver the vital processes essential for the success of your business.
Data is important but applications are critical
A true disaster recovery solution should guarantee which applications and what data sets can be quickly recovered irrespective of the type of outage that impacts your organisation. The ‘Recovery Point Objective’ is the maximum tolerable period in which data might be lost from an application. The other factor is the time taken to deliver this recovery point, a measurement called the ‘Recovery Time Objective’. Put simply, these two factors – RPO and RTO determine what can be recovered and how quickly an organisation can get “back to normal” in the event of a disaster.
