Information technology (IT) media company TechTarget, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTGT) today announced the launch of SearchDisasterRecovery.com™ to support the specialized information requirements of IT professionals managing and deploying disaster recovery and business continuity initiatives, and who are researching which solutions to purchase.
In a recent SearchStorage.com/Storage magazine survey conducted by TechTarget, 54% of the respondents cited disaster recovery as the primary reason for building new data centers or renovating existing facilities. In the same survey, 47% of respondents indicated they would increase their disaster recovery spending in 2008, while 38% said they would maintain 2007 spending levels.
SearchDisasterRecovery.com will provide a single, comprehensive, online point of contact for IT managers seeking information about disaster recovery and business continuity-related products, technologies, best practices and business strategies that can lead to more efficient and reliable disaster recovery and business continuity policy and practice. Because disaster recovery and business continuity encompass all aspects of IT, the site will examine how both disciplines impact IT overall, including networking, data center management and data security, as well as personnel issues, facilities management, risk assessment, and disaster recovery outsourcing. Topic categories will include disaster recovery planning; business continuity planning; continuous data protection; disk backup; tape backup; backup software; data replication; data security; recovery site management; failover/failback operations; electronic vaulting and disaster recovery testing.
SearchDisasterRecovery.com will also offer unbiased news analysis, an essential tips library, learning guides, and white papers to provide the tools and tactics needed to make optimal technology decisions. And, because disaster recovery involves more than just storage, SearchDisasterRecovery.com will include the most relevant networking, data center and security content from other TechTarget sites.
“SearchDisasterRecovery.com expands TechTarget’s portfolio of dedicated information resources for IT professionals responsible for disaster recovery and business continuity operations,” said Greg Strakosch, CEO of TechTarget. “It also further strengthens the company’s role as a leading provider of targeted content for IT professionals, and affirms TechTarget’s commitment to continually delivering ROI for IT advertisers through the development of innovative, targeted online marketing vehicles.”
