Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructures, both on-premises and in the cloud, deliver storage, networking and compute resources in a single appliance; however, they do not ensure data recovery for enterprise workloads.
If you’re wondering what threatens your data in Nutanix infrastructure or any infrastructure, then you should give this article a read. It sheds light on the major causes of data loss for businesses.
Without reliable means to recover enterprise workloads, even with enterprise-level infrastructures like Nutanix; the important data of the enterprise will always be at risk. Let’s explore the risks that businesses take by not setting up reliable means to recover their data.
The risks Businesses take by not setting up Reliable Backup and Disaster Recovery Solutions
Violation of Industry Regulations – Most industry regulations, if not all, require enterprises to implement reliable means of ensuring data recoverability. Even enterprises with Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure have to setup backup and disaster recovery solutions to complement their storage environments.
In the events of data loss, these businesses don’t just end up dealing with the lost data but also the financial repercussions of violating industry regulations.
Disruption/Outage/Discontinuity – Without having reliable means of recovering data; even the simplest accident can result in an outage. A single misplaced coffee spill can result in hardware failure, which in turn can result in the complete loss of data from that hardware. This translates to
An outage means discontinued operations which result in financial losses, dissatisfied customers and brand reputation damage.
Higher Probability of Data Corruption – The lack of a reliable backup and disaster recovery solution makes IT environments a lot more vulnerable to data corruption. A single accident or malicious action or an IT management mistake means data corruption or data loss; it can also be a network failure or power failure that results in data corruption.
Software malfunctions or product patches can also lead to data corruption. Malware and ransomware are a major threat for all infrastructures and without reliable backup and disaster recovery; businesses are making their data vulnerable to them.
Disasters (Natural and Artificial) – Natural disasters can dismantle an entire office building. An IT environment is highly unlikely to survive something as devastating as natural disasters (tornadoes, earthquakes etc.). Without having means to recover from such devastation and without setting up reliable backup and disaster recovery solutions, businesses risk everything.
This risk isn’t just limited to natural disasters. It also includes man-made disasters like power failures, fires, malicious deletion, accidental or malicious damage to infrastructure etc.
Simply put, businesses without backup and disaster recovery solutions are risking their enterprise workloads even with enterprise-level infrastructures like Nutanix.
