Top 10 Disaster Recovery Consulting/Services Companies - 2019

A backup and disaster recovery strategy isn’t just a nice thing to have—it’s essential for the survival of business. In some industries, it’s also a matter of meeting regulatory compliance standards. However, regardless of whether a company is obligated by law to have a business continuity plan, they owe it to the future of your organization to do so. While most companies have a disaster recovery (DR) plan of some type, there are still many companies who don’t have any plan at all. The sad thing about this fact is that, according to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Washington, D.C., 93 percent of companies that lost their data centre for ten or more days due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. Additionally, 60 percent of companies that lose their data shut down within six months of the disaster. With traditional DR solutions, to obtain short RPOs and fast RTOs, you had to use a SAN with synchronous replication and have dedicated wide area network (WAN) circuits between sites. In most DR designs this required you to have your own secondary data center to send the replicated data to and run your secondary servers and storage in the event of the disaster. Many DR replication solutions were designed just for specific application. When you wanted replication for another application, you had to purchase another replication solution for that app. All this semi-custom disaster recovery technology, plus the monthly bandwidth to support the movement of the data, resulting in a very high cost for a high-quality DR solution. Unfortunately, this put disaster recovery out of the financial reach for many companies. With a 48-hour RTO, the company could be down as much as two days before all applications are restored. Again, for most companies, that amount of downtime is going to be unacceptable. Another challenge associated with traditional disaster recovery solutions is that of maintaining the DR plan itself. This plan is the actual runbook, as it’s called, as to the steps that the actual administrators would take in the event of a real disaster. That runbook must include a plan for every application, its associated data, and user connectivity, and the sequential recovery steps for the application. With applications changing and moving at a constant rate in the modern data center, the task of maintaining the disaster recovery runbook has become overwhelming for most companies. These examples aren’t just the challenges of the past, they are still the disaster recovery challenges faces by most companies today.
