blog-2014-03-14-fi-300x200There’s a certain peace of mind that comes with knowing your company is protected, especially when we’re talking about massive amounts of data. Sometimes, however, we forfeit peace of mind because of cost.


The same rationale behind “No, I don’t need comprehensive insurance on my new car because I’m going to take really good care of it” often also applies to SAP solutions. You need protection, but you also need your budget to last all of 2014. And that’s where cloud services come in.


With its more affordable infrastructure options and faster recovery times, the cloud makes high availability/disaster recovery (HA/DR) plans that can better fit into your pocketbook. If your organization was previously priced out of the market, you may now find HA/DR to be a more realistic option.


As the Chief Technology Officer at Symmetry Corporation, I’ll be speaking about this topic at the Basis & SAP Administration Conference in Orlando, FL on March 26th.


If you’re there, stop by at 3:15 pm and learn more, including ways cloud technology is blurring the lines between high availability and hot disaster recovery.


I’ll also touch on how to warm up a cold DR solution with a cloud environment specifically architected for fast recovery. You’ll get a better idea of how to understand new recovery point objectives and recovery times objectives that are achievable in a cloud-based HA/DR solution—and how it can impact options to safeguard your IT operations.
