You ensure the DRP of your critical applications thanks to a second computer room or a backup contract with a specialized provider. You’ve experienced the extreme difficulty of keeping up-to-date this DRP in order to make it operational whennecessary and respectful of the RTO and RPO objectives the executives have assigned to you.
You are fully aware of the costs of these duplicate investments (servers, discs, softs but also heavy infrastructural costs such as rooms, electricity, air conditioning…) for an hypothetical need.. In an ideal world your management would prefer limited ongoing operating costs even if it means significant activation costs if something exceptional occurs.
Finally, you are painfully aware of the inherent rigidity of these solutions and how difficult it is to adjust them to the evolution of your business. Rooms can’t easily be resized. The lengths of commitment, of leases or of amortizations can’t easily be revised. The implementation or decommissioning periods are difficult to reduce.
Faced with these challenges, the Cloud has the perfect features for the DRP and Gekko helps you use them.
