IBM Disaster Recovery

The International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) disaster recovery has to do with processes and policies that ensure that businesses continue to operate in the event that a natural or man-made disaster occurs. IBM basically offers disaster recovery solutions which ensure that the technological infrastructure of your business continues in the event of a disaster. It is a fact that the technological aspect of most businesses is connected to most if not all components of the business. Therefore, if there happens to be an event that causes you to lose relevant data, that could have a serious impact on the overall success of the business.

Natural disasters come in many forms; examples include hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and earthquakes. There are also disasters that are man-made, which means that human intervention is involved. Examples of disasters that are man-made include infrastructural or power failure, acts of terrorism, dangerous chemical spills and virus attacks. Because these things can happen anytime and anywhere, it is always a good idea to be prepared ahead of time so that when disaster strikes, you can recover vital data.

IBM offers data recovery services that allow you to store data and applications externally or outside your data center. So even if you experience a fire or some other natural disaster your important data will be protected in the cloud. IBM developed the Cloud Virtualized Server Recovery (VSR) and its purpose is to maintain virtualized instances of vital data as well as applications in the SoftLayer cloud. This will happen whether your services are run in a private cloud or in your data center or mainly in SoftLayer.

Although these services are intended for SoftLayer customers, even if you are not that customer, you can also benefit. This is because IBM also offers other cloud recovery services such as Cloud Data Virtualization, Cloud Virtualized Server Recovery, Cloud Managed Backup and Cloud Application Resiliency. They also offer consulting services such as Resiliency Consulting Services for SoftLayer customers. Such services provide clients with things such as management, planning and assessment of disaster recovery procedures.

Although there are many benefits associated with the cloud for instance keeping your business running after a disaster, there are some people who have concerns about the cloud. This is mainly due to the fact that they have no control over the cloud data center. That is why IBM came up with new security tools. With these security tools IT professionals can get the data which they have become accustomed to receiving inside their data centers. This information includes incident tracking and threat identification.

At the end of the day, IBM disaster recovery solutions are necessary in order to ensure that you do not lose important data in the event that a disaster strikes. Just as you pay your insurance premiums so that you will be covered if the unexpected happens, you should also take measures to ensure that even if disaster strikes, your technological infrastructure will be recoverable. You must do everything you can to avoid anything that might have a devastating impact on your business.
