THE COSTS OF DOWNTIME HAVE
INCREASED AT AN EXTREMELY ALARMING RATE. The loss of revenue, production capability and customer care has become the focus for many executives
and system administrators. The addition of more high availability environments & business operations that depend on 24x7 continuous operations to meet the demands of their business users have made it
apparent that business must continue in the event of an internal or external failure.
All companies that rely on information technology must be prepared for any type of loss of service, from brief power outages and software crashes
to Telco failures or full-scale disasters that interrupt business from days to weeks. What used to be just a switch back to a paper system, i.e.: taking orders and then updating the system when service
returns, can now cost a company significent revenues, the inability to meet commitments or even it's life. Many companies never recover.

or Fortune 500
company. Recovery windows are now measured in seconds instead of hours. The days of system administrators doing daily backups, and then being able to easily restore if there was a problem, have gone by the wayside.
new paradigm has been put into play.
The traditional causes of outages have now grown to include: linked sites crashing, security incidents, and even total loss of system assets. Recovery Time Objective (RTO) has become a major focal point for many who rely on real-time applications.
