– Daniel Kuperman, Director of Product Marketing for Axcient, says:
It’s estimated that businesses lose billions of dollars due to application downtime and data loss. Unscheduled downtime and outages are detrimental to businesses of any size. With increasingly complex and critical IT environments, organizations are seeking ways to implement backup and recovery solutions to protect their business. Yet most businesses don’t have adequate recovery technologies in place.
To combat these challenges, the cloud has emerged as a viable alternative to traditional backup and disaster recovery. Eighty-nine percent of companies see value in a cloud-based solution for business protection and IT recovery.
Companies that have switched to a cloud-based recovery solution cite benefits such as faster recovery time after a disaster (53 percent), less IT time spent on backup and recovery tasks (50 percent), immediate access to applications and data in the event of a disaster (45 percent), ability to fully recover (44 percent), and overall cost reduction (36 percent). Additionally, more than half of companies are more confident using cloud-based recovery solutions in the case of system failure for recovering all operations in two hours or less.
Unscheduled downtime and outrages often have dramatic impacts on business results.
With increasingly complex and critical IT environments, companies are looking for ways to fully protect their business, while at the same time providing easier and faster recovery times. With the demand for reliable backup and recovery significantly rising, a new approach is required. Fortunately, the cloud has emerged as a viable alternative to traditional backup and disaster recovery.
