Organizations need to do a better job of understanding the potential downsides that cloud computing and virtualization can have on their ability to maintain the resilience and availability of their applications and data, Vision Solutions concluded in its State of Resilience 2011 report, which it unveils today in a Webcast at 10 a.m. CST. The overall state of resilience has suffered as the result of increased level of complexity due to the different IT protection schemes put in place to cover virtualization and cloud.
For the fourth year in a row, Vision Solutions and its Information Availability Institute have published a State of Resiliency report that showcases the findings of hundreds of surveys conducted with Vision customers and prospects over the last year. Almost 6,300 people participated in this year’s survey, which represents organizations from more than 100 countries. Vision sliced and diced its findings by company size, physical machines versus virtual machines, cloud versus on-premise, and by all the most popular platforms in the server rainbow, including IBM i, AIX, Linux, HP-UX, Solaris, and Windows.CLOUD COMPUTING, DATA and ANALYTICS , Inside the Briefcase
