Why You Can't Afford to Ignore Disaster Recovery

Think disaster recovery isn’t a big deal? Think again.

In August 2013, Google experienced downtime for a total of five minutes which caused its Internet traffic to plummet by 40 percent. In November 2013, OTC Markets Group Inc’s network failure promoted a shutdown in over-the-counter stock trading in the U.S., while Amazon’s 49 minutes of interrupted service translated into $5 million in lost revenue.

Still think disaster recovery isn’t a big deal?

With the high cost of downtime – businesses have lost over $70 million due to an average of 7.5 hours of downtime per year – you simply can’t afford to ignore disaster recovery.  Besides exorbitant revenue loss, downtime can lead to:

  • Costly compliance fees: For heavily-regulated industries – such as healthcare, financial services and government agencies –downtime can render your data unrecoverable, leaving you vulnerable to costly lawsuits as well as compliance and regulation fees.
  • Damaged reputation: Big outages tend to get big media attention. The last thing you want is to be the butt of every joke on news media outlets.
  • Customer dissatisfaction: No one is perfect, but your customers expect you to be. They want and have come to expect 24/7 access to your services, so any interruption can cause a massive uproar.
