As data centers change and grow in complexity, one of IT's greatest challenges is ensuring that post-recovery IT operations are as stable as pre-disaster IT operations. Testing this can be a costly and time-consuming process. According to research statistics published at the Gartner Data Center Conference in December 2011, annual disaster recovery testing budgets could range from $20,000 to more than $150,000.

Let’s face the facts around disaster recovery planning and testing:

- Most DR plans today fail to meet recovery time objectives
- Most DR plans are rarely up to date with changes
- Most companies run DR tests only once or twice a year
- Most DR tests fail the first time

Watch this video to learn how DR Automation solutions from FalconStor can help you match your recovery policies to your business requirements so that you can deliver a complete Service or System recovery aligned to your business goals.
