By any measure, Office 365 is a success as millions of Microsoft seats transition from on-premises Exchange to a cloud-based email service as part of Office 365. While Microsoft has been offering hosted email solutions for more than 20 years, they have hit their stride with Office 365, the third major iteration of the company’s foray into hosted/cloud-based email and collaboration.
This white paper discusses the key issues that decision makers need to consider as they evaluate the email, security, and resilience capabilities of Office 365. After reading this analyst perspective completed by Michael Osterman of Osterman Research, we believe you will better understand:
Special considerations related to hybrid Exchange and Office 365 email deployments
The importance of programmatic security efficacy rather than simple functionality
How to ensure business messaging continuity in the context of Office 365 outages

At no other time has data played such a crucial role in the success of our commercial sector, and no more so than in financial services. We can see this powerfully illustrated when we pause to consider the growth of data driven ‘technologies’ such as Artificial Intelligence and their prevalence in driving innovation in areas such as risk management, multi-channel customer experience and fraud detection.
So keen is the sector to use data to deliver advantage, that PwC says startups with a strong AI-based offer attract some of the most lucrative funding – to the tune of $1 billion over the past two years.1
With this as our landscape, and the continued drive to deliver data-driven innovation the prospect of disruption and downtime is something that cannot be countenanced. This being the main reason why the senior management of most organisations continue to buy into tried-and-tested Disaster Recovery (DR) strategies.

In today’s environment, business continuity is a necessity. As organizations embrace digital transformation and turn to IT for almost all most critical operations, downtime can be crippling. Those that are able to tolerate technology failures transparently—so the business remains up and running— can drive dramatic gains in competitive advantage, customer engagement and business innovation.
However, achieving the highest levels of business continuity, with zero recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs), has been possible only for the largest companies and their most business-critical applications. The associated costs and complexity have simply been too much for most organizations to achieve those levels.
That is no longer the case.
This white paper discusses a new active/active stretched cluster technology that allows companies of all sizes to achieve the highest levels of business continuity without the costs and complexities that have typically marked thi
Oggi la continuità operativa è fondamentale per qualsiasi azienda. Le imprese sono coinvolte in una trasformazione digitale profonda e si rivolgono all’IT per tutte le attività più mission-critical. I tempi di fermo possono arrivare a paralizzare l’intera organizzazione: le aziende più resilienti sono in grado di gestire i guasti tecnologici e fare in modo che l’azienda resti sempre operativa e funzionante. Garantire la business continuity, infatti, significa garantire maggiore vantaggio competitivo, maggiore coinvolgimento dei clienti e maggiore innovazione.
Tuttavia, il raggiungimento di una business continuity di alto livello, con Recovery Point Objective (RPO) e Recovery Time Objective (RTO) pari a zero, è tipica delle imprese di grandi dimensioni che, proprio perché grandi, possono sostenere gli investimenti necessari e gestire la complessità associata. Per la maggior parte delle aziende, i costi di una business continuity di alto livello sono sempre risultati eccessivi.

Continuous data availability is a key business continuity requirement for storage systems. It ensures protection against downtime in case of serious incidents or disasters and enables recovery to an operational state within a reasonably short period. To ensure continuous availability, storage solutions need to meet resiliency, recovery, and contingency requirements outlined by the organization.

To support business continuity, many
organizations eagerly avoid putting all their
eggs in one basket.
Understanding the critical role of last-mile
connectivity and always-available Internet
access, savvy firms utilize redundant wide
area network (WAN) and Internet connections
from multiple service providers to ensure
network availability in addition to load
balancing. Despite the good intentions,
their Internet connectivity risks may still be
in a single basket. That is because internet
service providers (ISPs) and competitive local
exchange carriers (CLECs) may operate using
leased network infrastructure from the same
incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC).

The importance of emergency preparedness and business continuity

For many years, organizations thought about business continuity in much the same way they thought about business insurance — yes, it was important, but rarely was it top of mind. But that’s all changed. Many organizations have, unfortunately, discovered that even a scant few minutes of service downtime can have deleterious effects on their business operations, resulting in lost revenue, diminished customer confidence and heightened compliance risk.
For those and other reasons, IT executives have raised the bar on business continuity preparedness for their organizations in all ways. New technologies, business processes and partnerships, combined with a raised level of importance for testing and a full appreciation of what virtualization can and can’t do for business continuity, are essential to new thinking around avoiding the impact
of an unplanned service interruption.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary
storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on
a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and
take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become
automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible
Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount
of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem
secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure
costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information
governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data
retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability
and complete protection of the

Maintaining business continuity is your highest priority.
In today’s commercial landscape, business continuity depends on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data across the organization – from operations to sales to fulfillment. Even a brief lapse in workload continuity can mean thousands of lost sales opportunities, disruption to production, and compromised customer trust.
The causes of those lapses can range from natural disasters to mechanical failure or human error. You need a data platform and a proactive disaster recovery (DR) strategy that will help you stay up and running in the event that your physical infrastructure is unavailable for any length of time.
Fulfilling orders, providing a high level of customer service, and keeping consumers engaged all depend on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data throughout your organization.
Above all, protecting customer data—especially personally identifiable information (PII) —is critical

Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.
