Crafting a robust business continuity plan is a long, arduous, and expensive undertaking with many people involved. Surely you’ve considered numerous intricate failure and recovery scenarios, carefully prioritizing each according to their impact. Testing, training and auditing every step along the way.
But have you thought through its hidden dependencies, three to be exact? The location, topology and supplier of your data storage.
Changes outside of your control in any one of these facets can really shake the foundation of your plan.
- Say, when the location of your disaster recovery site moves from on-premises to the cloud. How’s that supposed to work with your existing storage arrays? Probably not so well.
- Or when the topology of your SAN collapses from a 3-tier architecture to a hyperconverged system. Will your data replication strategy hold up then? What about your restore and failback processes? Throw them out the window.
- Dare we even contemplate what problems adding or changing suppliers of storage would cause? Especially if they entice you with next-gen technology and a super good deal.
