RTO-Based Disaster Recovery

The unexpected loss of a Teradata system could mean more than just lost revenues; business reputation, decreased customer retention, lost business intelligence, reduced employee morale, productivity issues, and legal entanglements are very real possibilities.

In a worst-case scenario, what's the business impact of losing access to business-critical data on your Teradata system? How long — weeks, days, hours — can you can operate without your critical data? Business function impact is the primary factor in determining recovery time objective (RTO) — how long you can operate without critical data — as well as the Teradata Recovery Option right for you.
