DR/BC Survey Results


Evolve IP’s recent survey of 2,084 IT professional and executives about the latest practices, trends and challenges for organizations regarding disaster recovery, business continuity planning, and other related topics resulted in several notable statistics. For example:

  • Fifty-one percent of those surveyed believe they are only “somewhat prepared” to recover their IT and related assets in the event of a disaster or other incident and another 5 percent claim they are not prepared.
  • Forty-five percent are still relying on the antiquated, unreliable method of backup tapes as a method of DR.
  • The leading cause (47 percent) of incidents and outages is: hardware failure / server room issues.
  • More than one-third (34 percent) have experienced an incident that required disaster recovery.
