    DRP Made Simple

    Bakup PolicyCIOs and IT Managers need to consider mandated backup compliance requirements

    Data now lives in more places than ever before and is constantly at risk from not just cybercriminals but clumsy employees too.

    Simply backing up your data is no longer enough to meet today’s complex data protection requirements.

    IT pros need a multipronged approach - a unified business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solution that can protect all workloads and add immutability safeguards against cybercrimes and human errors.

    IT Infrastructure Architecture

    IT Infrastructure Policies and Procedures

    Business leaders now understand that digital is central to their business and success.  They are grasping that fact that their customers, products, and competitors are now fundamentally digital.   Their operations and insights are digital.   Digital business promises to usher in an unprecedented convergence of people, business, and things that disrupts existing business models.   While 74% of business executives say their company has a digital strategy, only 15% believe that their company has the skills and capabilities to execute on that strategy. A piecemeal strategy of bolting on digital channels or methods is no longer sufficient.

    Top 10 Best DR/BC best Practices

    Most CIOs and management executives all say they have disaster recovery and business continuity under control

    Janco has found that successful organization typically follow or have implemented these 10 best practices.

    1. Have management communicate that disaster recovery is not as a tactical IT project but as a strategic IT asset.
    2. Create a disaster recovery and business continuity process that is integrated into the organization
    3. Allocate costs associated with the disaster recovery business continuity plan as part of the base overhead so that costs are distributed across the entire organization
    4. Treat disaster recovery and business continuity as "mission critical" for cost and staff allocations
    5. Establish metrics for the process and timing of recovery events
    6. Test the plans at least once every six months or whenever there is major enhancement to the enterprise's computing or operational infrastructure
    7. Monitor how other enterprises and your competitors are faring after and event occurs
    8. Quarterly review you media communication protocol for who says what when to whom when an event occurs
    9. Pool your assets and personnel to provide resilience capabilities for interconnected systems or collaborative technologies such as payments or check processing.
    10. Test the back-ups (at least quarterly) so that what is taken is what is needed for recovery and that it meets your recovery performance metrics.

    Disaster Recovery with the Cloud

    How to do Disaster Recovery with the Cloud

    Disaster REcovery with the CloudWith the rise of hybrid and multi-cloud servers, you need a strategic and proactive approach to address the complexity, scale, and dynamic nature of modern hybrid environments.

    When disaster strikes, some CIO and IT Departments find their disaster recovery techniques and hardware configuration have not kept pace with a changed production environment.,They falsely believe the improved day-to-day resilience of their cloud environment lessens their need for disaster recovery (DR) planning. In fact, the opposite is true: Catastrophic hardware failures in the cloud environments bring down many more applications than in non-virtualized environments, making DR planning and implementation more critical, not less.
