13TB solid-state drive will alter backup models

January 14th, 2016

A 13TB solid-state drive is now available for $13,000.  Most SSDs today have no more than 6TB of storage, and the 13TB drive more than doubles that capacity.

As the price for this drops, disaster recovery and business continuity plans will have to be updated to reflect this new cost effective technology.

Question that need to be answered are:

  • Is our data safe in transit and at rest?
  • What prevents hackers from gaining access to our data?
  • Is our data properly handled, stored, and deleted?
  • Who can access our data?
  • What are the benchmark measurements?
  • Is our data backup strategy compliant?
  • Will our recovery be successful?

Protecting your data is vital to the survival and growth of your business. You must keep your systems and employees up and running - and productive - even as fast backup and restore processes are being completed. And, should a "worst-case scenario" occur, being prepared with an appropriate disaster recovery plan is essential.


The Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) can be used as a Disaster Planning template for any size of enterprise. The Disaster Recovery template and supporting material have been updated to be Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA compliant.
