Disaster Recovery Download: Doing DR Right

blue-binary-codeDon’t Get DR Wrong

We cover a lot of news stories on our social media outlets every week, and every now and then something sticks out as been right on target. (If you’re not already following us, I ask that you start today!) This week our friends over at Tech Target’s Search Disaster Recovery site featured a story from Jon Toigo titled 10 mistakes to avoid in your disaster recovery planning process that I highly recommend to our readers.  In his article Jon offers some great advice on how to avoid making DR plans more complex than they need to be, or by trying to save money where you really shouldn’t.  With all the vendor hype today around availability and services, it can be easy to overlook critical pieces of a solid disaster recovery plan.  Some of these suggestions are common sense but they’re also really easy to forget. Disaster recovery is an investment of both time and money, both of which need to be managed wisely. Be smart and heed these suggestions from the experts. DR planning may not be attractive now, but there is a huge hero factor when you can prove that you got it right. Jump on over and read 10 mistakes to avoid in your disaster recovery planning process today.

VMware Partner Exchange

Also this week was the VMware Partner Exchange conference in San Francisco, where Neverfail had the opportunity to get in front of many solution providers who focus on VMware and vSphere environments.  The feedback from our booth was that although traffic was down the overall the quality of potential partnership leads increased, particularly with the MSPs interested in both Architect and Engine. Both of our IT Continuity software offerings have a deep integration with the vSphere environment and add tremendous value for our partners’ customers. One area that VMware was pushing hard at the conference is their Virtual Data Protection solution (VDPA), which is just one of the technologies included in the protection assessments that IT Continuity Architect performs. Our Architect product automatically maps out your complete infrastructure, determines recovery capabilities, and helps align business services with recovery objectives.  The IT Continuity Engine helps fill the gaps in protection for tier-1 critical application. Our partners agree, Neverfail is the perfect BCDR compliment to their vSphere deployments.

That’s all for this week.  Stay tuned on our social media channels for more great information all week long!
