21st Century Disaster Recovery solutions typically enable an organisation to minimise revenue loss in the event of service interruption by recovering key applications and systems quickly. This protects businesses from both physical failure and logical data corruption, while minimizing the potential for data loss.

- Hot Standby - SAN to SAN replication from vendors such as HP 3PAR and DELL Compellent can provide a Disaster Recovery solution that is easy to verify and test on a regular basis but is typically more expensive.
- Warm Standby – Host based replication or snapshot and replicate technologies from vendors such as Double-Take, Symantec, Veeam, AppAssure and Vranger can often provide a high level of protection at an affordable price.
Test & Maintain – It is vitally important to frequently test the solution to ensure that an organisation’s Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) are met. It is important to remember that the Disaster Recovery solution needs to be updated and tested in order to reflect the changes to the production systems if the client has added any new systems or applications.
