Fewer than two-thirds (65%) of UK enterprises employing more than 500 people have a documented company-wide disaster recovery plan in place, even though 85% have experienced a failure or outage at some point. Nor are they testing DR systems often enough, claims secure application and data protection cloud services provider iland.
According to its new report, When Plan B Goes Wrong: Avoiding the Pitfalls of DRaaS, 57% of organisations test at best once a year, with 6% not testing at all.
The research also reveals that a comparatively small number of enterprises rely on the cloud for replication. When asked where they replicated on-premises apps and data, 59% said in a separate on-premise data centre, 30% said in Azure, 23% in AWS and 17% with a VMWare cloud service provider.
