In January 2016, 141 professionals — directors, CIOs and managers of large, small and mid-sized companies — were surveyed for a comprehensive disaster recovery (DR) survey. The results of this survey reveal some important truths about DR, backup, availability goals, downtime costs, and responses. For instance, did you know the top risk to system availability continues to be human error? This benchmark survey report reviews the challenges and best practices of companies using or looking to implement DR solutions. Read this report to compare your DR experiences with those of your peers.
While a public cloud provides an easy and scalable way to manage and deploy your app or website, you also need to have a contingency plan for business continuity and disaster recovery.

This eBook provides a guide for planning and implementing a robust cross-region cloud disaster recovery (CDR) plan for business continuity and critical application uptime on AWS-based applications.
