Until recently, enterprise-grade disaster recovery had been prohibitively expensive for most organizations. Thanks to the rapid development of cloud infrastructure, organizations can now attain top-of-the-line disaster recovery capabilities into Microsoft Azure at a fraction of the cost. An enterprise-grade disaster recovery (DR) solution is no longer something that is “nice to have.” Nor can it be a document approved by the Board of Directors but hasn’t been touched or tested in years. Why not? In addition to the probability of damaging your hard-earned reputation, downtime also comes with major costs. Gartner estimates the average cost of IT downtime at $5,600 per minute, which can add up quickly.
