Contain your configuration drift - Close the gap between intended and deployed states
Given the wide range of equipment, the high pace of change, and the several diverse teams involved in today’s data centers, even the best-run environments can suffer from configuration drift: discrepancies between your intended and deployed states which can remain undetected until it is too late. These configuration gaps can be mapped to five categories of sources:
- Operating system and hardware-related
- Storage and SAN-related
When undetected, a single configuration error can lead to unexpected downtime and/or data loss.
Get a finger on your data center’s pulse - Tests alone may not be enough.
Testing is a key tool in the arsenal of business continuity professionals intended to ensure the success of their business continuity plans. But tests can be disruptive. They are also effort and resource intensive and usually not conducted very frequently. When they are conducted they can fail to identify critical flaws in your environment exposing you to system downtime and data loss and compromising your ability to meet your recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO).
