A Real-World Disaster Recovery Use Case Explains What You Need to Save the Day When a Real Disaster Strikes.

Companies often embark on a DR project without the guidance of real-life examples. As a result, project teams often wander far from their objectives, or the project ends up with scope creep, rework, delay or even abandonment.

A real-world DR use case can effectively help your team build stronger DR requirements and may bring to light factors you weren’t considering before.

This use case describes a DR scenario affecting a mid-size company: a disaster destroys the company’s production data center and the IT team must recover the data center within the Recovery Time Objective.

This use case is appropriate reading for CIOs, CTOs, and IT directors/managers in medium-sized organizations, as well as IT workload specialists in enterprise companies. Download it now!
