Insurance – the act of insuring, or assuring, against loss or damage by a contingent event. (Webster Dictionary)
We’re all used to buying insurance: home, car, life, and the list goes on. In business, we insure our data with backups and disaster recovery against power outages, fires, hurricanes, and the employee that just happens to make a wrong click in the wrong spot. We pay insurance for the event that we hope never happens, and when you think about it, it’s basically a sunk cost until you need it – praying you never do. That brings up the question: Wouldn’t it be nice if our insurance payment was more than just another bill and had a secondary benefit?
Good news, your DR insurance payment can do more than just be a sunk cost. Net3 has developed a way for you to use your DR environment for Test/Dev. Recapturing your data set for Test/Dev purposes validates that insurance payment and puts your data to a meaningful use. By recapturing your DR data set, businesses can reduce the amount of time, effort and money required to address DR and Test/Dev independently.
Net3 and Actifio have partnered to help maximize the value of your DR data and have it packaged in a way to make it easy and cost efficient. Through PvDC’s single pane of glass Cloud Portal, companies can now capitalize on cost by allocating their DR resources to Test/Dev resources in just a few clicks.
