Every business has to prepare for the worst. Those that don’t may never fully recover from a disaster. But not all disasters are created equal.

Use of cloud computing by enterprise companies is growing rapidly. A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining on-premise, at the “Edge”. In this paper, we describe and critique the common physical infrastructure practices seen today, propose a method of analyzing the resiliency needed, and discuss best practices that will ensure employees remain connected to their business critical applications.
Although no prevention method is 100% fool proof, risk avoidance and taking proactive measures for preparedness are essential elements of the disaster recovery process.

Think of selling disaster recovery like selling insurance. You are trying to get a customer to give you money just in case something goes wrong. It’s just like car insurance, no one says to themselves, “I sure am glad I give hundreds of dollars a month to my insurance company!” That is until they get into an accident. Likewise your customers know it’s possible that data, applications, and systems can corrupt or fail, leaving their business partially or completely inoperative. They realize the need for disaster recovery and that everything must be protected. But how do you put the right price on disaster recovery services so that both of you are happy?
