Disaster recovery simulation is absolutely crucial for the survival of companies in today’s business environment. There’s really no point in backing up your data if you can’t be absolutely certain that you’ll recover quickly in the event of an emergency.

In response to the overwhelming success of their web-based Downtime Cost Calculator, Storagepipe has also published 2 new versions of their Downtime Cost Calculator app for both Android and iPhone/iPod Touch platforms.
The online version of the Downtime Cost Calculator (http://downtimecost.com) was released a few months ago, and it quickly gained a lot of attention within the media and blogosphere. As a result of this publicity, Storagepipe (http://storagepipe.com ) noticed that there was a demand for a more portable offline version of this application that could be installed on mobile computing devices and smart phones.
According to Steven Rodin, company president “Disaster recovery simulation is absolutely crucial for the survival of companies in today’s business environment. There’s really no point in backing up your data if you can’t be absolutely certain that you’ll recover quickly in the event of an emergency. It’s better to fail in a simulated test where you can correct mistakes, than to fail in real life and lose everything.”
Storagepipe recommends that their customers test their datacenter emergency recovery process at least once per year. Because IT systems are constantly changing, any new unforeseen challenges can be identified and resolved during these tests.
These new portable offline downtime simulators allows IT workers to evaluate the cost of unexpected server failure at any time or place, regardless of internet connectivity. And the app is always quickly available at the push of a button, so there’s no need to search for it online.
