Why knowing your data is key to disaster recovery

Why knowing your data is key to disaster recovery

There are 13 types of data crucial to your firm's infrastructure - can you list them all?

What is the most important task carried out by your company or clients' IT infrastructure? Take a second to think about it. It's a key question regardless of whether you're integrating technologies into your own firm, or attempting to plan an integration strategy for an ongoing or prospective customer. 

It's not as simple a question as you might have thought, but it's one that should be asked whenever integrating or selling any new technology. With IT outages increasingly plaguing organisations across all sectors, it has never been more important to know your systems inside and out to understand which workloads are dependent on one another, and to have a mechanism that can get you back online quickly. 

There's no 'silver bullet' for IT outages

Only with a full understanding of the system, can administrators then implement mechanisms to get their systems back online, and fast, in the face of a disaster. The best way to do this is by adopting a zero-day approach to architecture. This approach allows organisations to prioritise workloads, and minimises downtime without having to worry about lost data. 

A zero-day recovery architecture is a service that enables administrators to quickly bring work code or data into operation in the event of any outages, without having to worry about whether the workload is still compromised.
