You Can Do Better than Disaster Recovery

polyone-logoAre you a fire fighter or do you try and prevent them before they happen? Are you proactive or reactive? Business as usual for most when it comes to disaster recovery is to have a solution to bet back up… eventually.

It is a dangerous practice that many companies are still following – relying on tape-based backups as the core of their disaster recovery plan. As most IT professionals know… this strategy will result in being down for at least a few days, possibly more.  And for most businesses, that just isn’t good enough. Research shows that 90% of companies unable to resume business operations within 5 days of a disaster are out of business within 1 year.

That’s why many leading corporations are moving to a business continuity strategy to replace their disaster recovery plan. The latest to do just that with SecureData 365 is PolyOne.

“As an IT department re-evaluating our disaster recovery strategy, it was clear that maintaining the status quo just isn’t good enough.  We have a responsibility to our customers and other stakeholders to always do better.”
-Jim Connolly, PolyOne
