Business Continuity Services
Our disaster recovery solution helps keep the critical data safe, protected and available. This includes storage technology options that enables you to recover frequently used primary data almost instantly, replication capabilities that allow you to replicate data to other locations quickly and automatically, and proven backup and recovery solutions to keep all your data safe and protected. We plan, design and implement end to end DR solutions on physical DR sites and Cloud based DR solutions. For the cloud based solution we use the IBM cloud to provide our services.
Business Continuity is more than just Disaster Recovery. It is about identifying the dependencies and getting the business to keep operating. Our services provide for application uptime both for physical set-ups and for the Cloud based BC solution.
Prior to selecting a disaster recovery strategy, our disaster recovery planners first refer to the organization’s business continuity plan which should indicate the key metrics of recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) for various business processes. The metrics specified for the business processes are then mapped to the underlying IT systems and infrastructure that support those processes.
Once the RTO and RPO metrics have been mapped to IT infrastructure, our DR planners can determine the most suitable recovery strategy for each system. A cost-benefit analysis, then often dictates which disaster recovery solutions is implemented.
Some of the disaster recovery solutions which we provide include:
- Backups made to tape and sent off-site at regular intervals
- Backups made to disk on-site and automatically copied to off-site disk, or made directly to off-site disk
- Replication of data to an off-site location, which overcomes the need to restore the data.
- Hybrid Cloud solutions that replicate both on-site and to off-site data centers. These solutions provide the ability to instantly fail-over to local on-site hardware, but in the event of a physical disaster, servers can be brought up in the cloud data centers as well.
- The use of high availability systems which keep both the data and system replicated off-site, enabling continuous access to systems and data, even after a disaster.
