What happens when risk becomes reality? Can you confidently tell your customers, executives, and stakeholders how long it will take for you to bring your systems back up in the event of a disaster?
These are questions that organizations of all sizes and within all industries are asking themselves and, for many, the answer is, “I don’t know.”
It starts with knowing that you have the right technology, processes, and people in place to support your hybrid recovery IT landscape, no matter the cause of downtime and no matter where your workloads live.

1. You’ve got the right team in place
2. You’ve tiered your applications
3. You’ve designed a hybrid recovery strategy
IT landscapes span well beyond the primary data center and your recovery strategy must account for both physical and virtual environments, no matter where those distributed workloads reside. You need to have the resources and capabilities to consistently execute on your plan efficiently and effectively, regardless the level of complexity.
Sungard AS Cloud Recovery’s tiered orchestrated recovery approach reduces conflict and automates the recovery of both physical and virtual platforms based on length of time to recover the application, its impact on revenue and any interdependent applications.
4. You’re testing regularly
The ongoing platform and configuration changes in your production environment must be reflected in your recovery landscape for your DR plan to be successful. A single configuration change or additional server can impact your recovery plan significantly, putting your data and your application availability in jeopardy. Testing is the time to make mistakes and to discover how you can improve the RTO you promised to the business.
All of Sungard AS’ Cloud Recovery solutions include annual testing with options to test monthly. We provide SLA backed RTOs based on your fully recovered and validated environment — not just the infrastructure.
