Michael Simmons, President of Spartan Networks, explains automated testing and quarterly builds.

Transcript:

One of the tag that lines I use is ‘Backup is great but recovery is what really matters.‘ and before you can recover you have to test to make sure you can recover.

Quarterly testing is where I can contact Global Data Vault every quarter, once a quarter and do a free test disaster recovery. And the nice thing about Global Data Vault’s recovery process is that they do a complete build out of my infrastructure in their data center so I don’t have to spin the VM’s (virtual machines) up myself, they do that for me. I don’t have to prepare the network, they do that for me. In a disaster recovery scenario, a lot of the legwork that some providers would require guys like me to do, that’s done by GDV so that when a disaster does strike you know you are ready for it.

Especially in today’s environemnt with all the security threats that are there both internally and externally, if you don’t have a full disaster recovery solution in place, you are really cheating your customer.
