IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/11/12 -- Vision Solutions, Inc., the world's leading provider of information availability software and services for the Windows, Linux, IBM Power Systems and Cloud computing markets, has released its "State of Resilience" report for 2012 based on surveys of over 530 IT professionals worldwide representing more than 30 countries. The most important result was that 47% of respondents plan to use a hybrid strategy based on combining storage, software and cloud based technologies to protect their critical IT infrastructures and applications, compared to around 13% each that said they would use one of those technologies alone for their recovery and continuity.
Alongside this, the report findings include an overview of the increasing pressure to deliver 24/7 access and the acceptance of virtualization as a core component of resilience in the IT environment.
- Use of Cloud for Data Protection is increasing. The number of respondents choosing only cloud for their data protection strategy was equal to the number choosing only hardware and only software solutions for future data protection plans.
- Increase in adoption of agile data protection technologies alongside traditional tape option. Although tape still dominates disaster recovery planning overall, there was a slight decrease of 4% on last year's figures when it comes to use of tape technologies. There has been an increase in use of storage-based replication, software or logical replication plus failover, and clustering. The largest percentage increase was in the use of software or logical replication and failover, in comparison to last year.
- Server virtualization has continued to grow with high rates of deployment across all sizes of company demonstrating a maturity and acceptance of virtual servers. 87% of respondents have deployed virtual servers compared to 80% in the 2011 report. The take-up of virtualization remains lowest in the SMB category, yet virtualization has still been deployed by 80% of organizations with 1-10 employees according to the survey.
- Maturity of virtualization further reinforced by high reported use of virtual servers as part of High Availability/Disaster Recovery strategy. Of those respondents that have virtualized, 70% use virtual servers as recovery systems within their High Availability/Disaster Recovery configuration.
- High availability is key to delivering on 24/7 access requirements. The majority of respondents have business directives to enable 24/7 data and application access to users. IT professionals therefore see High Availability solutions as critical to delivering on this business requirement. The need for real-time protection of company data is being driven by this approach.
The fifth annual "State of Resilience" provides analysis of new and existing technologies that IT professionals are employing to protect their critical information and ensure business continuity. This year's report addresses the role that cloud has in data protection strategies, future plans for business continuity and the increasing importance of high availability solutions.
Alan Arnold, Chief Technology Officer, Vision Solutions:
"Against a backdrop of natural disasters that had serious personal and business ramifications, as well as a range of high profile IT failures, the theme of resilience has been in the public eye more than usual. While the majority of companies have a disaster recovery strategy for IT, this year's report emphasizes that for most organizations, a traditional strategy is no longer adequate. Business demand for 24/7 access to data and applications drives the need for high availability and disaster recovery solutions and we expect this trend to continue as globalization and around-the-clock access pervade. As each and every IT transaction becomes critical, the need for real-time protection increases, regardless of the platform on which the application itself is running."
Joint State of Resilience Webinar with IBM Corporation
The findings of the fifth annual State of Resilience Report 2012 will be discussed in a webinar presented by Vision Solutions and IBM. Speakers on the webinar will be Jacqueline Woods, Global Vice President of Systems Software and Growth Solutions at IBM, and Kim Kaminski, Vice President of Marketing at Vision Solutions.
Time: 10:00am USA CST / 3:00pm GMT / 4:00pm EU Standard Time

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
