One of the coolest projects that I have done so far at Veeam has been to write a small Dummies book on the three languages of Data Protection:
- Technical = RTO & RPO
- Operational = SLA’s based on BIA & RA
- Financial = TCO & ROI
This (little) book was meant to be a Rosetta Stone to help you translate between the three languages. There is a chapter for each of the above perspectives, along with two other chapters:
- How to calculate the cost of downtime, using a formula and methodology that I have used with clients for over a decade (across three companies).
- Ten Tips for better Data Protection
Disclaimer: Veeam encouraged me to write this and then licensed its usage for customers and partners, but the only Veeam-speak is the sponsored logo on the front and back covers. So, I hope that you find it useful.
