For many years, organizations thought about business continuity in much the same way they thought about business insurance — yes, it was important, but rarely was it top of mind. But that’s all changed. Many organizations have, unfortunately, discovered that even a scant few minutes of service downtime can have deleterious effects on their business operations, resulting in lost revenue, diminished customer confidence and heightened compliance risk. For those and other reasons, IT executives have raised the bar on business continuity preparedness for their organizations in all ways. New technologies, business processes and partnerships, combined with a raised level of importance for testing and a full appreciation of what virtualization can and can’t do for business continuity, are essential to new thinking around avoiding the impact of an unplanned service interruption. Download this informative Whitepaper to learn more about how Veritas Netbackup 8.1.2 can help.

The Industrial Revolution 4.0 is upon us and manufacturers who want to stay competitive need to adapt or they will inevitably fall behind. However, that’s easier said than done. Updating proprietary legacy systems can be expensive, complicated, and lead to unwanted downtime that can slow production on the plant floor. How do companies accomplish such a critical change without draining budgets and upending workflow? Surprisingly, the answer doesn't always involve completely rebuilding systems from scratch. Instead, removing antiquated equipment and streamlining connectivity without creating new security risks could successfully start organizations on their path to reaping the benefits of Manufacturing 4.0.

While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. Cheaper oil, for example, may save money initially, but it requires more frequent changes and provides less protection to the equipment, which could shorten component life. For many companies, the short-term savings simply aren’t worth the longterm cost risk. “Some companies don’t realize that they may be able to reduce their overall maintenance costs significantly by spending more up front on better quality lubricants,” Saffell says. “Their equipment may last longer and they are likely to see

Regulatory compliance is more than a series of rules to adhere to, and getting it right could save you time and money. Historically, compliance has been regarded as a checklist of fixed requirements. But this reactive outlook risks being too short-sighted. It can lead to higher compliance costs, audit deficiencies, greater business downtime and an increased risk of data loss. Furthermore, it can lead to missed opportunities to achieve greater levels of operational effectiveness for your business. The only way to achieve a greater level of operational efficiency is to adopt a proactive strategy and stay ahead of the compliance curve.

The risk and downtime of server migration have locked many IT teams into platforms that are no longer ideal. Migrations are often delayed or avoided—whether it’s moving data to the cloud or back on premises, or upgrading the hardware of the database software. This results in lost opportunities, unnecessary costs, and a lack of agility that today’s IT teams can no longer afford. Carbonite Move Powered by DoubleTake quickly and easily migrates physical, virtual, and cloud workloads over any distance with minimal risk and near-zero downtime. Using efficient real-time, byte-level replication technology, Carbonite Move creates a replica of the data, application, database, or entire server being migrated and keeps it in sync with the production system. The migrated data can be validated without disrupting business operations, and downtime is limited to the seconds or minutes required for cutover to the new server.

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions. Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles. Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime.

Global DNS performance and availability are critical to user experience. According to Gartner, “DNS is mission-critical to all organizations that connect to the internet. DNS failure or poor performance leads to applications, data and content becoming unavailable, causing user frustration, lost sales and business reputation damage.” But many businesses still rely on a single, often in-house DNS solution that lacks global scale and resiliency. This white paper reviews the business advantages of implementing a high availability DNS architecture using redundant DNS services. You will learn: - The critical role DNS plays in the user experience. - The risks of relying solely on a single DNS solution. - The added performance and reliability benefits of a high availability DNS architecture with a redundant managed DNS service. - Criteria for evaluating a managed DNS service provider.

No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them. Are you prepared? Please download this eBook to find out!

Service Providers have unique networking challenges as compared to other environments. Factor, differentiating Service Provider`s network from others, is the requirement for 100% uptime. The network stability is crucial to their customers’ business and is, therefore, intolerant to disruptions or outages, which may damage the company`s reputation and market position, or even affect it irreversibly. Downtime risks can no longer be mitigated by simply over-engineering the network, but rather deploying network optimization solutions, based on the intelligent monitoring and automated response, versus manual network troubleshooting and brute force time spending.

An intelligent, searchable recording fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it? We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier 2 engineers to handle resolving the most difficult and costly network issues while using less expensive personnel to handle easier ones. But justifying a network investment on a soft, intuitive argument like this alone doesn’t usually suffice. And, depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential will vary. At the high end, in many financial and brokerage institutions, a minute of downtime can cost the company millions of dollars. So being able to shave even a single minute off network downtime with a pervasive monitoring tool represents an immediate recovery of the fabric investment.
