This Week in Disaster Recovery – Volume 1

Welcome to a new, soon-to-be-regular post from Zerto, “This Week in Disaster Recovery”.  We hope to bring you some of the top news in DR, particularly as it relates to DR of Virtualized and Cloud environments. Up this week:

The article mentions an interesting example:  “…Who owns data which is no longer handled  in situ?  When a company processes data in the UK, stores it on a server in Ireland but sends it via France — as it may have a subsidiary there — it is not yet clear which country’s law would prevail in a legal dispute.”   (I’ve finally found a reason to use the term “in situ” in a blog post.  Yay!  Up next week: “mens rea“).

– More than half (54%) are considering moving Disaster Recovery to the Cloud.
— Only two thirds (64%) have tested their continuity plan in the last 12 months. (Yikes.)
— Eighty percent said the complexity of network infrastructure is increasing.

  • DR to the Cloud Explained — This is a great explanation of DR to the Cloud, including things like SLAs (Service Level Agreements) and CDP (Continuous Data Protection).  It’s a post by Jacob Gsoedl on TechTarget’s site. One good quote, “The challenging aspect of using cloud-based backups for disaster recovery is the recovery”.  Yep, we’d agree.  Jacob doesn’t mention Zerto in the post, but it’s still a worthwhile read!
