Gartner Report: Backup and Disaster Recovery Modernization is No Longer a Luxury but a Business Necessity

Posted by Cynthia Hart
 

Once considered an afterthought or a very expensive insurance policy for a low-probability event, IT disaster recovery management is increasingly becoming an important data center initiative and an ongoing optimization priority for many client organizations.

This complimentary Gartner report provides a thorough analysis of Gartner's findings from their 2011 CIO survey and Gartner's business recommendations which include:

  • Invest in IT disaster recovery management (IT DRM) modernization to meet increasingly stringent business resilience requirements.
  • Invest in classifying applications and services based on mission-critical requirements to develop appropriate recovery tiers that balance risk mitigation with affordability.
  • Charter a backup modernization initiative to assess current recovery capabilities, scope present and future recovery requirements, and prepare enhancement service options to be addressed.
  • Look to deploy, or more fully deploy, recent proven backup products, such as incremental forever or synthetic full processing, deduplication, server virtualization improvements, and snapshot and replication integration.

Check out the full report to find out which backup and recovery modernization action items enterprises and managed service providers alike should begin implementing.
