Fifth Annual Unitrends Cloud and Disaster Recovery Survey Reveals Unacceptably High Levels of Data Loss and Downtime

LONDON, UK – June 28, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nearly one-third of organisations (30%) said they had lost data as a result of a data centre outage in the past year, while more than four in ten (42%) said they had experienced a period of downtime. That’s according to a new survey conducted by Unitrends, which polled more than 400 respondents from organisations of all sizes and industries about the challenges and trends that IT departments and admins face when protecting data from downtime and disasters.

According to the survey, well over half (58%) of respondents said they had to recover at least some of their data from the cloud at least once last year, while 11% in total had to recover data from the cloud five times or more. Surprisingly, however, more than half of respondents (55%) said they tested their data recovery capabilities once a year or less.

Joe Noonan, vice president of product management, Unitrends and Spanning said: “It is concerning that most enterprises don’t really know for sure if they can recover their applications after a downtime event as they test rarely or not at all. The need to continuously test recovery tools is critical to ensuring speedy business restoration.”

More positively, the Unitrends research paints a picture of growing use of cloud in data protection strategies. The survey found 61% of small (1 – 50 employees), 58% of mid-sized (51 – 1000) and 60% of large organisations use the cloud as part of their data protection.

‘Archive/long-term retention’ topped the list of uses of cloud for data protection, with 61% of the sample referencing it, followed by ‘host disaster recovery as a service (DraaS) and business continuity’ (44%) and ‘store files short term’ (35%).

The future continues to look bright for the cloud. Of the 40% of organisations not currently using the cloud for data protection, 53% of them plan to adopt it within the next year. If these plans hold true, by 2020, 80% of all organisations, regardless of size will be using the cloud for some form of data protection.

“The survey highlights that cloud is now an active part of the data storage infrastructure of a growing number of organisations today,” added Noonan. “We are also seeing cloud-based disaster recovery-as-a-service (DraaS) becoming an increasingly widely adopted tool in data and application protection. 80% of survey respondents told us they either used the cloud for DraaS or planned to do at some point in the future.”
