Although Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) planning have been viewed for years as activities that would be used in a limited number of sectors across businesses, the increasing reliance on computing resources has forced organizations of all sizes to adopt new measures to protect their data and reduce the risk of going offline for long periods of time. With the trend toward virtualization and cloud computing, risk/disaster management has had to adopt new concepts with the challenge of achieving the best protection and recovery results, while keeping the solution simple and cost effective. Veeam® presents a full set of tools and technologies that help in complying with the difficult-to achieve requirements of today’s IT operations DR and BC standards for both VMware and Hyper-V environments. This white paper emphasizes the different ways Veeam Backup & Replication™ assists in planning and implementing a DR and BC strategy.
