Hyperconverged infrastructure solutions are making substantial inroads into a broader set of use cases and deployment options, but limitations exist. I& leaders should view HCI solutions as tools in the toolbox, rather than panaceas for all IT infrastructure problems.
In many ways, disaster recovery (DR) has become more complex to manage over time. The threats have multiplied, including an increase in natural disasters and the growing threat of ransomware attacks. Legacy DR requires multiple products to manage your data; a typical DR toolkit includes DR tools, backup, primary storage, and encryption tools – all handled by different solutions. That's expensive and introduces another layer of complexity. Legacy DR solutions are no longer sufficient for today's complicated and tightly integrated IT environments.
So, what can you do to better prepare for a disaster? Read the tech brief, Why Is Disaster Recovery So Hard?, to learn:
