Data Loss and Downtime Costing Enterprises $1.7 Trillion a Year
Posted on December 02, 2014 By Pedro Hernandez
Hardware failure (53 percent) was the primary cause of data loss and systems downtime, followed by a power loss (39 percent) and software failure (38 percent). Data corruption (29 percent) and accidental user error (26 percent) rounded out the top five reasons.
Enterprises are losing their grip on cloud and mobile data, according to a new study published today by Vanson Bourne and EMC.
The most staggering statistic to come from the survey of 3,300 IT professionals across 24 countries is the monetary amount attributed to failed or non-existent data protection schemes. The estimated annual cost to enterprises is $1.7 trillion, which compares to nearly half of Germany's gross domestic product (GDP), split between data loss ($754 billion) and downtime ($954 billion).
The EMC Global Data Protection Index also revealed that on average, companies lost 400 percent more data over the past two years. That amounts to 2.33 TB of data, the equivalent of 24 million emails at a cost of $1.02 million per organization. A patchy disaster recovery landscape isn't helping matters either.
Fifty-one percent of the organizations polled by Vanson Bourne said that when it comes to "emerging workloads" -- hybrid cloud, big data and mobile, essentially -- they don't have a disaster recovery plan in place. Should trouble befall their storage environments, 71 percent said that they aren't fully confident in their ability to recover lost data.

Quem aqui faz backup? E dos que fazem, quem aqui já testou ou testa os backups (e os restores) regularmente? ;-)

Já testar regularmente backup, pode me colocar na categoria dos laggards.
Restore é para quem deseja comprovar na prática a Lei de Murphy.
