1 2010 Symantec Disaster Recovery Study Global Results

2 Methodology Applied Research performed survey 1,700 enterprises worldwide 5,000 employees or more Cross-industry 2

3 Key Findings Virtualization and Cloud Make DR Complex The Downtime Recovery Gap Impact of Disaster Recovery Testing Recommendations 3

4 Virtualization and Cloud Make DR Complex 4

5 Virtual Environments Protected Properly? 56% of data on virtual systems is regularly backed up Only 20% of virtual environments protected by replication or failover technologies 5

6 Lack of Tools, Decrease of Virtual Protection 58% report different tools for virtual and physical environments is a challenge Virtualization led 84% to reevaluate DR plans in % of virtualized environments not covered in DR plans 6

7 Storage and Resource Constraints an Issue 59% identified resource constraints (people, budget, and space) as the top challenge when backing up virtual machines 57% state that the lack of primary and 60% state that lack of backup storage hampers protecting mission critical data 7

8 Cloud Causes Security and Control Issues Organizations put 50% of applications in the cloud 66% say security is main concern of cloud 55% say control is biggest challenge of cloud 8

9 The Downtime Recovery Gap 9

10 Downtime Recovery Gap Expectation of downtime for outage = 2 hours Actual downtime in last 12 months = 5 hours Median of 4 incidents in past 12 months 10

11 Major Causes of Downtime 72% experience downtime from system upgrades (50.9 hours) 70% experience downtime from power outages and failures (11.3 hours) 26% conducted a power outage and failure impact assessment 63% experience cyber attacks (52.7 hours) 11

12 Impact of Disaster Recovery Testing 12

13 Improvement In Testing Frequency and Success 82% test more frequently than once a year Significant increase from 66% who reported same in % of tests fail to meet RTO/RPOs 13

14 Reasons for not testing Budget (60%) Disruption to employees (59%) Disruption to customers, sales & revenue stream (24%) Lack of people s time (26%) Cost of testing: $606,948 14

15 Symantec Recommendations 15

16 Recommendations Ensure that mission-critical data and applications are treated the same across environments (virtual, cloud, physical) in terms of DR assessments and planning Use integrated tool sets for managing physical, virtual and cloud environments to save time, training costs and help better automate processes. Embrace low-impact backup methods and deduplication to ensure that mission-critical data in virtual environments is backed up, efficiently replicated off campus Prioritize planning activities and tools that automate and perform processes which minimize downtime during system upgrades Implement solutions that detect issues, reduce downtime and recover faster to be more in line with expectations Don t cut corners on basic technologies and processes that protect in case of an outage
