Cloud backup and disaster recovery are slowly gaining traction in the data protection space, particularly as many organizations leverage the hybrid on-premises/cloud approaches vendors rolled out in 2012. Other new backup techs are on the rise, as well, like array-based snapshots and converged backup/file sharing and archiving applications. Explore this expert Storage Handbook to get the scoop on data backup applications going into the new year, and learn about cloud backup and DR, snapshots, VM backups and big data protection.
DR testing is frequently put off or overlooked entirely. However, many surveys show that IT pros are not confident in their ability to recover in a timely manner following a disaster. There are a variety of reasons why IT people lack confidence in their DR plans, but many simply lack confidence in the backup/DR technologies they rely on. Technology isn't a substitute for a good backup strategy. And testing is the only way to find holes in your strategy. This Handbook offers guidelines for disaster recovery testing today, with a look at the variety of technologies and practices in use. You will find an expert Q&A outlining technologies that can make DR testing more effective. Another piece takes a look at how one company's quarterly DR test helped prepare them for Hurricane Sandy. And finally, check out a piece on DR testing for the cloud.
