State of Disaster Recovery #Infographic #Disaster #Technology

Have you ever wondered what happens to critical data for banks, apps, hospitals, schools or any other business when their physical servers are affected by natural disasters, fire, or hackers?

There is a whole industry dedicated to saving the world’s data from destruction. It is called Disaster Recovery. Using the cloud and other digital media storage, disaster recovery professionals create plans for what to do when the inevitable happens: their company’s sensitive data is threatened.

Get a sneak peek into the lives of Disaster Recovery (DR) professionals with this infographic. Almost 400 industry professionals were surveyed about the role of DR technology in their company. Two-thirds of these professionals say that just having their data center down for 8 hours would cost them more than $20,000 a day. 75% of those surveyed have experienced a power outage that cost their company money.

In a world of sensitive data that needs immediate availability, disaster recovery is one of the fastest changing and most in-demand skillsets in all of IT.
