It is never a question of if an outage or disaster will strike your datacenter, but instead when will it occur and will you be prepared. In 2014 the Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council released their annual report on their Disaster Recovery Preparedness Benchmark Survey. This reported provided a very scary statistic that nearly 3 out of every 4 organizations that participated in the survey are at risk of failing to recover from a disaster or an outage. The study also indicated that “More than 60% of those who took the survey do not have a fully documented DR plan and another 40% admitted that the DR plan they current have did not prove very useful when it was called on to respond to their worst disaster recovery event or scenario.”
To address some of these concerns I have created a webcast video that outlines some of the possible solutions to enable organizations to meet their disaster recovery objectives. You can view this webcast on YouTube using the link below:
This webcast provides a general overview of cloud based Disaster Recovery solutions including:
- Microsoft Azure Backup

Microsoft also has a great series of videos related to Microsoft Business Continuity solutions available on the Microsoft Virtual Academy website.
