Auditing & Assurance

  • Virtualization Disaster RecoveryOne of the benefits of virtualization is that it can eliminate the need to recreate a physical server when something goes wrong. Placing a virtual server on reserve capacity or the cloud are very real possibilities, making achieving your organizations recovery time objectives (RTOs) trivially easy in some circumstances.Take stock of the virtualization platforms (VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Oracle VM, Citrix XenServer, etc.) used in your environment, along with the backup and recovery tools used by each, and draw up a plan to get virtual workloads up and running again.
  • Network Disaster RecoveryServers aren’t the only part of an organization’s IT infrastructure that may be affected by a disaster. Networks can also meet an untimely demise, which in turn can lead to failures in business applications and services that depend on reliable network connectivity.A network disaster recovery plan often includes procedures on contacting the proper IT personnel, acquiring replacement networking equipment from vendors and other actions required to restore connectivity.
  • Cloud-based Disaster RecoveryOne of the most compelling reasons to include the cloud in your disaster recovery planning is the ability to use a cloud provider’s data center as a recovery site without investing in additional facilities, systems and personnel. It also grants users access to cutting-edge IT capabilities, a consequence of a competitive cloud market in which AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and others attempt to one-up each other.There are several factors to consider before making the jump to disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), including bandwidth, cloud storage costs, security and regulatory compliance, to name a few. As with any IT endeavor, identify the backup and recovery challenges that a third-party cloud provider may help solve along with the impact on your IT processes and budget before incorporating the cloud into your disaster recovery plan.
