As the need for uninterrupted availability of enterprise data is growing, more businesses are striving for 24x7 system availability and can’t afford any downtime. In this era of continuous information availability, the complete and rapid recovery from a disaster is not just nice to have; it is a necessity.
Whether you're a business, a government agency, a healthcare organization, or an educational institution, you must ensure that you're prepared for when, not if, disaster strikes. A protracted interruption in your organization's ability to access data will disrupt business operations. This can lead to the loss of customers and revenue, a drop in share price, or possible noncompliance fines for failing to protect and/or provide information promptly when required.
A well-planned, rehearsed, and tested disaster recovery solution can save time and money for your organization by offering small recovery windows with no or acceptable data loss. IBM System Storage N series offers an array of proven, low-cost, and simplified data protection and disaster recovery solutions for your organization’s data.
