Effective business management is what allows operation to continue in situations of crises generated by technological interruptions in operation. Every business must have a technological backup in the event of an emergency.

Mauricio Solano in his article in Elfinancierocr.com details the key factors that organizations should consider:

"Types of technology:

Some companies develop a wide variety of technologies used in a data center, so it is important to take that into consideration as part of the development of strategies for continuity and disaster recovery, because this heterogeneity could lead to difficulties in the case of recovery in the event of a disaster.

Virtualization technology: This factor relates to the new virtualization technologies. "Virtualise it” seems to be the buzzword for many companies, not because it is fashionable but for the number of benefits offered.

Examples of such advantages are flexibility, in addition to agility, portability, security and the which can isolation can be established between the different environments that are virtualized on a single physical server."
