When it comes to disaster recovery however, many IT teams have yet to unlock the full value of pairing their Nutanix environment with public cloud infrastructure. Organizations have yet to tap into the cloud’s cost-savings, efficiency, and resiliency for disaster recovery compare to secondary on-prem sites.

We live in age of extreme weather fueled by climate change and rampant cyberattacks, on top of all the mundane occurrences of equipment failure and power outages.

Disasters are more common and their impacts more costly to businesses today.
The Uptime Institute found that 60% of outages resulted in downtime that cost over $100,000 in losses to the business, while 15% of the time that cost is over $1,000,000. That’s a big, unexpected cost. The worst part, however, is the Uptime Institute’s research found that it’s also a common occurrence: 80% of datacenter managers and operators have experienced an outage in the last three years.
