Recovery time objective, or RTO, is the targeted duration of time and service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster, or disruption, in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in business continuity. RTO therefore refers to the point in time in the future at which your organization will be up and running again after a major service interruption. RTO is an extremely important metric when examining data disaster recovery services.
After a major natural calamity like hurricane Katrina, interest in disaster recovery skyrockets and companies rush to design and implement data backup and disaster recovery plans. The sad fact of the matter is that disaster recovery planning cannot be done retroactively and the newly motivated organizations will all face major business interruptions. In some cases, the break in systems continuity can significantly impair relationships with company stakeholders and lead to a damaged reputation and less profits down the road. The IT professionals who designed VMware SRM know that choosing a disaster recovery plan can be a daunting task that often gets postponed until it is too late. In response to these challenges, they offer a product with a full suite of integrated data backup and disaster recovery solutions to make the adoption of a disaster recovery plan a simpler task for enterprise management.
No matter what field of business you are in, you should always be prepared for any unfortunate events that may arise. The data that lives within an organization is crucial for success, so if anything should happen to it, it could spell out bad news for business. Loss of data can result from a number of tragedies, including a natural disaster, employee error, theft or damage to hardware, and hardware malfunction. Once data has been lost or compromised, it can take weeks to recover, if it is even able to be saved at all. That is why it is important to implement a recovery service to help you in your time of need. An excellent solution for this is VMware’s disaster recovery and backup plans.
