Majority of Firms Look to Virtualization to Help Minimize Downtime and Increase Availability
New York, NY, June 26, 2012 — /BackupReview.info/ — BUMI (Backup My Info!), the premium provider of managed online backup and recovery solutions for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced the findings of its annual industry survey, which analyzed current approaches to data backup and recovery. The survey, which polled CEOs, business owners and IT professionals at small- to mid-sized firms, found that 98 percent of respondents felt that more than one day to restore data after an incident was unacceptable even though almost a quarter of respondents did not regularly check the restore process of their data backup operations.
“Backing up your data is only the first step in protecting your organization. What really counts is how quickly and effectively you can recover your information,” said BUMI CEO, Jennifer Walzer. “A common misconception is that once backups are put into place, you’re all set. Unfortunately, data backup is not a flawless process. Glitches occur and hardware fails. It’s important to routinely test backups so that you can catch problems before they become disasters, but most organizations just don’t have the time or resources.”
“As hardware and software evolve, organizations have become less and less tolerant of downtime, and many are embracing virtualization as a solution,” added Ms. Walzer. “What’s great about virtualization is that you can create a redundant disaster recovery environment much more cost-effectively by reducing hardware and data center costs. For example, ten physical servers in a production environment can be reduced to two in a disaster recovery site.”
The survey was conducted from May to June 2012 and is based on responses from 104 CEOs, business owners and IT professionals across a variety of industries, including financial, accounting, legal, real estate and not-for-profit – some of whom are BUMI clients and/or part of BUMI’s IT consultant program.
