Embracing digital transformation to become Always-On
Warren Olivier, regional manager for Southern Africa at Veeam, examines why it is important for organisations to consider digital transformation in the age of the Always-On business.
Availability – what does it mean for your business?
Always-On availability in the modern data centre has become a business imperative. Companies can ill afford not to have access to their data whether it is in the office or out in the field using a mobile device. But how does one go about creating such an environment in a cost-effective way? Warren Olivier, regional manager of Veeam Southern Africa takes a look.
Cloud-based backup strategy can be implemented in just 15 minutes, says Veeam
Cloud-based backup services are an easy way for IT service providers to help clients achieve availability of their data, says Warren Olivier, Southern Africa Regional Manager at Veeam Software -- as well as an excellent first step into becoming a cloud provider. “In the past two years the pace of cloud adoption has accelerated, as more businesses have embraced the promise of increased agility, combined with lower costs and less complexity,” says Olivier.
Is scheduled downtime ever acceptable?
In the age of the always-on business, downtime is increasingly unacceptable -- even when it’s planned and announced in advance, says Veeam Regional Manager for Southern African Warren Olivier.
“In 2015 any business that has any kind of online component must accept that its customers, employees and suppliers demand constant, uninterrupted availability,” says Olivier.
Fast restore the key to high availability in the modern data centre
By Aptronics Business Development Director Mark Perry
The key to maintaining availability for the modern data centre is not whether you've protected your data by backing up - it's how well you can recover.
Everyone loses data, all the time. The MD unthinkingly deletes an important email, or a system administrator accidentally trashes an entire server in the middle of a long night shift, or a hard drive fails. What matters then is not just whether you're backed up, but whether you can restore the lost data.
Building the modern data centre: Plan for availability
by Warren Olivier, Southern Africa regional manager, Veeam Software
The always-on era is becoming a reality for every business: Globalisation is allowing companies to spread their operations across multiple time zones just as users are abandoning the old nine-to-five working day and want access to their email and data anytime, anywhere. Globally, according to Veeam’s most recent Availability Survey, enterprises have unplanned downtime an average of 13 times a year, for up to 51 hours of downtime, which can add up to between $1.4m and $2.2m in lost revenue, decreased productivity and missed opportunities.
Business continuity planning essential and affordable for most businesses, says Veeam
Business continuity planning -- how to carry on operating even after a disaster -- is still often thought of an expensive exercise that only large corporates can afford, says Warren Olivier of Veeam; “but it’s now easier than ever before, and affordable for most companies. In the era of the always-on business, failing to do this planning is irresponsible.”
IT downtime could be shaving up to 2% off your profits
Unplanned IT system downtime could be costing businesses as much as 2% of their annual profits, says Veeam Regional Manager for Southern Africa Warren Olivier, highlighting the urgent need to reduce re
covery time and recovery point objectives.
Reliability, availability the key to data centre success
The modern data centre exists for only one purpose, says Veeam Software Regional Manager for Southern Africa Warren Olivier: To give business users the applications and data they need to do their jobs.
Training, deal registration most valuable benefits for partners
