Business and IT Interruption Recovery Planning

Introduction

Business, governments and government agencies must be prepared for unexpected business interruptions of all types, from a supplier’s inability to supply, to the loss of a critical customer to a breakdown in a business process such as a temporary IT application outage or a loss of key personnel affecting the ability to execute that process. Proper proactive preparation prevents business outages of extended duration and provides the ability to quickly recover.

Unplanned Business Interruptions

Disaster Recovery Plan Consists of 2 primary inputs- Business Impact Assessment and Risk Analysis

Business Impact Analysis and Risk Assessment are both important components of BC/DR Plans. However, Business Impact Analysis should be carried out before attempting Risk Assessment. Once both these components are in place, it is easier to formulate a sound strategy and plan for Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery.

The four most important risk scenarios that affect business operations of an organization are:

  1. Production site is partly or fully destroyed or cannot be accessed
  2. Loss of data and / or other critical records
  3. Loss of IT functions due to application software errors, glitches, viruses, power outages etc.
  4. Loss of skills due to incapacitation, pandemics, death or mission-critical staff leaving for greener pastures

Unplanned System Outages

Disaster Recovery Plan Consists of 2 primary inputs- Business Impact Assessment and Risk Analysis

Are you unprepared for unpredictable and unexpected events which can expose your systems to unplanned outages? Planning for negative events strengthens your ability to respond and reduces your exposure to high losses if you are unprepared. There is an obvious parallel between the theory of unpredictable and unexpected events and the need for disaster preparedness for your critical IT assets.

How effective are your Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans???

Disaster Recovery is the process an organization uses to recover access to their software, data, hardware, and/or processes that are needed to resume the performance of normal, critical business functions after the event of either a natural disaster, or a disaster caused by humans, cyber-attacks, or an unexpected outage of a service or component of a business preventing the business from providing service to their customers as expected.

Data Center Infrastructure Management

Capacity Planning and Monitoring

(Part 3 of DCIM - NetZoomDC Enterprise Edition -Enabling and Facilitating Capacity Planning)

As reported in Computerworld May 12, 2017 by By Patrick Thibodeau, Senior Editor: “A third of virtual servers are zombies and idle virtual servers may be more costly than similarly idle physical servers.”

New research finds that 25% of all physical servers -- and 30% of all virtual servers -- are comatose. These are systems that have no activity in the last six months. 

The problem with comatose, or zombie, physical servers is well known. Past studies have routinely put the number of undead enterprise physical servers in the 20% to 30% range. But this latest research looked at virtual servers as well, and they may represent a significant cost to IT departments. That's because users may be paying licensing fees on their virtual servers, as well as on the software they support, said the researchers.

Data Center Consolidation

A data center consolidation strategy is important in order to:

  • reduce the number of devices in a single data center
  • reduce the global footprint with fewer data centers and locations to manage
  • provide a wide range of cost and efficiency improvements for the data center(s)

A DATA CENTER DCIM VALUE PROPOSITION

“NetZoom Enterprise”

 The cost of data center downtime has increased significantly for companies in the last three years, according to results of a recent study by Ponemon Institute, sponsored by Emerson Network Power. The average total cost per minute of an unplanned outage increased from $5,617 in 2010 to $7,908 in 2013 to $8,851. The average cost of a data center outage rose from $505,502 in 2010 to $690,204 in 2013 to $740,357 in the latest study.
