Typical Business Challenges How much does it cost me to have my IT environment off-line, and how quickly does my disaster recovery failover IT environment come on-line? How can I implement an affordable disaster recovery plan without capital expenditure, and not overloading my IT staff? Does my disaster recovery plan adequately protect my servers data and applications from man-made and natural disasters? Does the location of my disaster recovery servers provide enough geographic diversity to protect me from a widespread disaster? How can I squeeze the maximum amount of useful life out of may CAPEX investments with out the risk of outages? What happens when my aging servers reach end of life and need repairs or replacements?
Can You afford a Disaster? Organizations have experienced application and data loss over the past year 4 100% Forty-three percent of companies that experience a major data loss do not reopen 1 43% 80% Companies are out of business within two years of experiencing a major data loss 3 51% Companies that do not rebound from a data loss within one month are likely to go out of business in the near future 2 Sources: 1.

CA Technologies survey 12/2011 Cause of lost data was IT systems failure 4 78%
Super Storm Sandy had Widespread Impact 650,000 houses destroyed or damaged 8.5 million without power for weeks Severe damage to businesses in NJ 19,000 NJ businesses sustained damage of $250K or more Total business losses at $8.3 billion Disasters Strike without Warning Source: Tropical Cyclone Report Hurricane Sandy (AL182012)
More Frequent Extreme Hurricane surges in the future 1 Frequency to increase 10 times in coming decades Chance of Katrina magnitude hurricanes have doubled 1: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: 3/18/13 2013 forecast: 18 Tropical Storms – 9 will become Hurricanes Typical year has 12 Tropical Storms, 7 are Hurricanes 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season 2 2: Colorado State University – Tropical Meteorology Project, April 2013
Operational Outages a Greater Threat A regional disasters is only one type of event that impacts downtime IDC Business Continuity Study The greatest threats came from power outages, security, and telecommunications failures Near majority had to initiate an application or data recovery in past 12 months Only 10% had to activate a data center recovery Only 6% experienced a facility loss.
