Protecting your company’s critical applications and data, and ensuring it can recover from unforeseen events, is more important than ever in the digital economy. The Business Continuity Institute estimates that in the wake of a disaster, almost a quarter of businesses never re-open. 80% of those that can’t recover within a month are much more likely to go out of business, and 75% without strong Business Continuity plans usually fail within three years.
So how confident are you that your IT infrastructure is as robust as you need? Do you have the ability to flex your compute and storage easily as your needs change? Do you know where all of your key data is stored? In a serious situation, how quickly could your core infrastructure and applications be restored, and run from a different location?
The good news is Colt, VMware and Zerto are making the process of safe-guarding your business’s IT simpler and less costly – with a new breed of cloud-enabled Back-up and Disaster Recovery services that prove this long-standing dilemma can be solved intelligently and cost-effectively, all whilst building on existing VMware competencies.
I’m Sales Director of IT Services here at Colt, and I recently delivered a very focused 45 minute webinar on this topic to a community of IT Pros on the Spiceworks network, and it is clear to me that the IT community and business alike are embracing DRaaS technology.
