The new data centers have evolved to support a growing business, a dynamic workforce, and constantly changing business demands. IT and data center administrators are constantly tasked with creating a more resilient ecosystem capable of constant uptime and availability, especially for the mission critical data center.But it′s not quite as simple as that. New demands dictate that we′re far beyond just creating disaster recovery plans. We′re being tasked with delivering complete resiliency for our most critical environments.Fulfilling this mandate has typically involved the management of multiple, separate systems for disaster recovery, resiliency, uptime, security and more. However, as threats rise and systems grow more complex, there is an opportunityperhaps even a requirementto rethink the whole subject.
Increasingly, IT managers are starting to think about IT systems resiliency as the overall goal rather than focusing on discreet spheres of disaster recovery, backup, security and so forth.
