How much money do your customers have to spend on storage?

On our sister site, we’ve published the first of five slide show reports on storage administrators’ plans for their budget, from an extensive survey that was fielded in the fall. The survey posed storage-related questions to 700 respondents with storage purchasing authority, to gauge their plans around disk, tape, storage for virtual servers, networking, backup, the cloud and more. This first report focuses on how respondents’ budgets compare with those of prior years, how big they are, how they’re allocated, how much disk capacity they plan to buy, and which technologies they’re most likely to implement.

Check out the slide show and check back on the site for more to come.

What is your DR plan?
It was previously unavailable or of little value to the SMB market – create and test a Disaster Recovery (DR) plan and, just as importantly, create and test a Business Continuity Plan (BCP). From an information systems perspective, DR planning covers the steps from identification of a disaster, to ensuring that systems are restored to operation within the time period required by the business, the Recovery Time Objective (RTO), and with access to the data to the period required by the business, the recovery point objective (RPO). The BCP takes over after the disaster has been contained. It focuses on the steps to ensure that the people and processes can return to work, even in a temporary environment while recovering to a “permanent” state.
