You know the saying: Fortune favors the prepared mind. Yet many organizations don’t really learn this until it’s too late. Only when disaster has hit, and they’re deep in chaos and panic, do they realize the preparation that could have made their IT event into a non-event.

The cloud has never been one size fits all, which is one reason the hybrid cloud is so popular. You can mix private and public cloud infrastructures in the combination that works best for you - whatever delivers higher performance, stronger security and greater cost value. For instance, you might put your less sensitive operations on the cost-effective public cloud and save your more critical needs for the private cloud. If you're bridging the gap between old and new systems, instead of doing a rip and replace of your legacy infrastructure, you can design a BDR strategy that ushers in a new era of stronger security, efficiency and cost savings.

What's your biggest fear? A breach that steals customer and employee data and makes you the latest victim headline? Ransomware that demands a massive payout, potentially shutting your doors? Or is it... nature?

Every cyberattack has a sinister quality. There's just something inherently creepy about knowing an outside malefactor has invaded your system with the intention to harm you – and has been lurking in your network without you realizing it.

Once upon a time there was an outage… Wait, start over. Once upon a time it was the holidays…

It’s the end of the year and you know what that brings: lots of predictions and reports about IT trends, usually with some data thrown in. How are CSOs stopping cyberattacks? How are teams dealing with Shadow IT challenges? You know the drill.
Our opinion at Quorum: there isn’t always a whole lot of useful information about backup and data recovery solutions in these reports. So we decided to do our part and conduct up a thorough survey at the real struggles and solutions happening today. The result: our State of Disaster Recovery Report 2016.

When we think of the cloud, we often think of speed. We think of fast recovery; faster time to value; faster data performance. That’s why the cloud is so attractive, after all, along with stability, cost savings and other reasons.
But when it comes to the actual migration, speed is not your friend. Not right away, at least, especially if you’re moving away from legacy hardware and systems. The wave of organizations transitioning to a DRaaS solution for backup and disaster recovery are often eager to jump in feet first. But to ensure a safe and effective migration, you’ll need to address security issues before getting started. That means sorting out considerations like…

You can always tell how lucky someone’s been by asking them about outages or data loss. If they say it’s not an issue for them, or treat data loss as a pesky inconvenience, and say their incident response plan is something they’re getting around to – then you know you’re talking to someone who’s been very lucky indeed.

Technology: it moves at the speed of light. Well, some areas do. Others lag behind which creates a mishmash of solutions in your tech stack. Some are advanced, moving fast, integrating seamlessly and delivering the highest benefits of recent innovation. Others plod along delivering the same benefits that were impressive a decade ago but today ... not so much.
