Enable rapid recovery with continuous replication to the cloud.

Recover from breach or failure in a controlled, measurable way

Disruptions are inevitable in a complex, hybrid multicloud environment. How do you recover quickly?

In a world that expects businesses to be continuously operational, every second of downtime counts. A resiliency strategy that seamlessly responds to IT complexities and interdependencies across all cloud and on-premises resources can mean the difference between quickly resuming normal operations and huge adverse impact of prolonged disruption. IBM experts will work with you to overcome challenges related to creating a business continuity plan, work area recovery, detecting and responding to disruption and cyber attacks, GDPS, disaster recovery orchestration and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Whether you’re looking for a new disaster recovery plan or fortifying the one you already have, IBM can help you improve your ability to respond and recover from disruptive events and refine your strategy for IT recovery.

Five key technologies for enabling a cyber resilience framework

Every second of downtime counts. Digital transformation and cloud adoption is breaking down the traditional safeguards between enterprises and participants in the global economy as business- enabling technologies may become gateways to risk, attack, and failure. Cyber-resilience practices can help enterprises defend against those risks and recover from breach or failure in a controlled, measurable way. IBM cyber resilience framework enables organisations to reduce risk of their cyber-resilience journey and provides strategies to modify data protection and recovery practices to better align with today's more targeted and malicious attacks.

Client case study

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) was faced with that harsh reality when a 5.8- magnitude earthquake struck in 2016. Since the company’s backup center was located near headquarters in Ulsan City, Korea, the earthquake served as a wake-up call for HHI to examine its disaster recovery systems and determine preparedness for a full range of potential disruption.

HHI chose to partner with IBM Business Resiliency Services for strategic disaster recovery operations based on the extensive experience that IBM has in regional and global disaster recovery.
