Business Continuity, what does it really mean? Frankly, the term has been around forever, since the days the first PC landed and became essential to the health and performance of business. In recent years, it has meant how companies ensure IT systems remain available and are often linked with Disaster Recovery — creating the acronym BCDR — something all IT pros will undoubtedly know and probably have some experience with over their career. However, in recent years, new terms have outshined good ole BCDR: High Availability, Always-on, Always-Available, Modern Data Protection, and Cloud Data Management, to name a few. While all these terms have different focuses and value propositions, they all pay homage to the OG, Business Continuity.
