In today’s digital economy, businesses are driven by experience rather than quality products – the experience we, as consumers, are given from the companies we do business with. In our data-driven world, the introduction of the digital consumer and fusion of technologies have enabled business optimization. Now that an organization’s most critical asset is its data, the IT function is the single most critical aspect to a business either meeting – or not meeting – customer demand.

Ensuring your business is always on for your customers is vital and why data protection and business continuity are critical components of any IT strategy. Unfortunately, no organization is completely immune to attacks – disaster can strike at any time, and in today’s digital economy the cost of downtime is more than just financial; it can cause irreparable damage to your brand reputation as well.

We asked 759 global IT decision makers how confident they were in their organization’s ability to recover from unplanned downtime, and only 26% of companies reported that they are extremely confident in their ability to recover. We’ve also found that only half of companies have a disaster recovery plan in place. To be frank, that’s not good enough.

In today’s modern IT infrastructure, many organizations are burdened by complex environments comprised by a wide variety of systems, applications and data with different service level agreements (SLAs) that in turn, require different levels of application availability. Mission-critical systems, such as transactional systems or those that run e-commerce sites, need to be available 24/7/365 and require continuous data protection/high availability. Other systems, such as e-mail and CRMs, are critical for business/to maintain productivity, while secondary systems might be for archival data or internal intranet sites.

With so many different tiers of systems and applications, IT pros could be juggling over a dozen discrete products and vendors when deploying a business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan. Sound familiar? If you are looking to simplify your infrastructure and to reduce the multiple points of failure in your current environment, Arcserve has the answer.
