We surveyed channel partners and IT pros about the state of their business continuity and disaster recovery strategies, from connectivity to security to RTO/RPO. The fact is, partners can deliver good recoverability, across all locations, for less money. But not all organizations are taking advantage, as author Eyvonne Sharp, co-founder of Network Collective, discusses in our full report, free to registered users.
“The mismatches between IT and channel professional responses is likely attributable to the fact that partners are more attuned to advances in connectivity and data-protection technology,” said Lorna Garey, editor in chief of Channel Partners. “Hopefully this data will start some conversations.”
About the survey: We ran the survey in August and September 2017. Respondents were solicited from the Channel Partners audience via email, newsletter, site ads and social promos. We received 138 responses but excluded 43 that were either not well qualified or who didn’t answer all required questions. We had 41 IT pro and 58 channel respondents. Half of the IT pros surveyed have more than 10 TB under protection.
