Disaster recovery center: do-it-yourself is more popular

There is a growing trend in our prospects and customer base;  do-it-yourself disaster recovery center.  This DIY approach comes from a number of factors:

  • Companies are tired of paying for expensive all-encompassing contracts that don’t match up well with their specific needs.
  • Replication, load balancing and failover technologies have become more prevalent and less expensive.
  • Telecommunications circuit pricing is lower, especially in carrier neutral data center.
  • Affordable colocation is easier to find

Disaster recovery has long been on the CIO strategy list.  Disaster recovery colocation and business continuity centers are critical pieces of the long-term strategy.  If you like the idea of right-sizing your disaster recovery center, talk to Lifeline.
