place, it's a huge weight off of our
minds at the treasury," says Raúl
Cruz Franqui, CIO, Department of
Treasury of Puerto Rico.

Any Unplanned
Outage Is Expensive
There's no denying earthquakes,
¯Ã!!È ÃÄ ÈÃ'$$ÇÄ É%à !ÇÃ
out vital systems and services.
However, in today's connected
society, natural disasters
aren't the only threats. "A
lot of disaster events
are caused by power
outages, internal and
external security breaches
or cyberattacks, and of course,
simple human error," says David
Petersen, IBM Distinguished Engineer and chief architect for GDPS.
No matter the cause, outages are
expensive:
*

*

The estimated cost of a
cyberattack is $1.1 million, with
the most impactful problems
stemming from productivity
loss and negative customer
experience (bit.ly/2vbjvLX)
The average cost of network
downtime is $5,600 per minute
(gtnr.it/2LWTvKU). For industries such as automotive assembly, downtime can cost as much
as $22,000 per minute-that's
$1.3 million per hour
(bit.ly/2J5NwVQ).
The average global cost of a
data breach is $3.86 million
(ibm.co/2O9kCHS)

The lost productivity, lost
revenue, regulatory impact and
reputation impact all add up. In an
always-on world, dependence on
technology is high and tolerance
to disruption is low. When users
encounter disruption, it doesn't
take long before they jump on social
media channels to express their
dissatisfaction.

5 Ways to Keep
Your Business on
How prepared is your team? Use
&É%ÉîÃ(ÉÃÆÉ%&Ã"$ÄÇ&ÇÉ%Ã&!ÃÉ"Ã
protect your systems and data from
serious risk:
1. Redundancy Protection
IBM Z solutions are highly resilient, but even a mainframe
can fail or need to be taken
down for maintenance.
As part of Department of Treasury
of Puerto Rico's
DR system, the team
runs two IBM Z servers
 ÃÄÃÈ'ÄI%&ÉÃÇ! ®Ã'$ÄI
tion. In the event of an incident affecting its primary data
center, staff can switch over to the
DR infrastructure (Evertec), resuming operations within hours. "For
our citizens, this means less
disruption to public services
and the ability to submit
their tax information,
while the government can return to
business-as-usual
sooner," says Cruz
Franqui.
In Petersen's view, "In
a world where everybody's
becoming more dependent on IT,
there's an expectation that everything will always be available." IBM
GDPS is a collection of offerings
that can be tailored to meet the recovery objectives for your business.
Each offering uses a combination of

services, server and storage hardware/software-based replication
and automation, and clustering
software technologies to ensure
&Ä&Ã&ÉÃ%!'&! Ã%Ä&%®ÃÉ%Ã1!'$ÃÆ'%I
ness objectives.
For example, GDPS Continuous
Availability is ideally suited for
clients needing the best possible
Ä(ÄÄÆ&1ÃcÉNNQÃ®Ã Ä ÇÄÃ!$Ä I
zations). Using GDPS Continuous
Availability, organizations can
run multiple workloads where the
active instances of the workloads
are on either site (thereby making
all sites active). Each server is then
Ç! ®Ã'$ÉÈQÃ%!ÃÉÄÇÃÄÇ&(ÉÃ%&ÉÃ%Ã
a standby site for the other. This
approach gives you full utilization
of your sites with the potential for
continuous availability between
them. If a problem occurs, all you
need to do is redirect the connections to the other site, and within
seconds, everything is running as it should be-even
over unlimited global
distances.
2. Automate
Where Possible
Automation or control
software like IBM GDPS helps
reduce outage costs by minimizing downtime and avoiding human error. If you have an incident,
people are under stress and could
make mistakes. Using control software, you can react immediately.
"Systems have gotten so reliable
that when a problem does arise,

"In a world where everybody's becoming more
dependent on IT, there's an expectation that
everything will always be available."
-David Petersen, IBM Distinguished Engineer and chief architect for GDPS
