Choose the right partner for your resiliency and recovery needs

By: Joachim Mayer -Global Product Marketing Manager / Continuity Services


Today, most organizations realize the criticality of improving their disaster recovery capabilities. However questions of budget, expertise and time pose as barriers even today for organisations to improve their resiliency. The quick and easy way to do this is to outsource disaster recovery services when they do not have capabilities internally. The trend we also see increasingly today is that cloud-based resiliency is making its way onto the recovery and resiliency agenda. While DR-as-a-service

(DRaaS) holds great promise, realistically it won’t be a fit for every company and every workload,

especially at large organizations. According to the report, the common model that is emerging for the large enterprise is a hybrid sourcing model.


The demand for cloud-based recovery, based out of challenges faced by climageients in working with service providers, is forcing the traditional providers to rethink their approach to customer service. The report points to how Service providers have changed their approach to pricing and packaging so customers understand exactly what they are purchasing and how the costs break out.


Forrester Research has published “The Forrester WAVE™ : Traditional Disaster Recovery Service Providers Q1 2014” by Rachel Dines, January 17, 2014 where HP is positioned as a “Leader.” In addition, “The Forrester WAVE™: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service Providers, Q1 2014” by Rachel Dines, January 17, 2014, has been published and HP is positioned as a “Strong Performer.” The reports include detailed excel spreadsheets on the scoring with commentary. For the Traditional Disaster Recovery WAVE, HP has one of the highest scores for the “Current Offering.”
