  1. 1. DisasterPrevention and Recovery
  2. 2. C-Level Initiatives
  3. 3. Potential Solution? Proactive Reactive Real Time BackupNetwork Monitoring and Disaster Recovery Real Solutions for Real Needs!
  4. 4. What’ the Cost? s (Gartner research)•Most Businesses that experience a major loss of data go out of business. –43% never reopen –51 % fail within 24 months.•What defines a “Major Loss” –E-Mail -- Compliance Data –Loss of accounting data -- Employee Records –Client Files -- Contracts
  5. 5. E-Mail vulnerability (Dell research)•75% of all companies are expected to have a major e-mail outage•14% of all companies will experience an unplanned outage•More than 55% of all unplanned outages will last 6 hours or more – When will it happen?•41% of all companies experience monthly e-mail outages lasting at least 30 minutes
  6. 6. Consequences of loss range greatly (Dell research)•Health Care Provider lost $3 Million during an 8 hour outage•Law Firm confirmed losing $100,000 per hour for a 4 hour outage•5 Financial Firms were fined a total of $8.25 Million for e-mail failures
  7. 7. BusinessContinuitySolutions
  8. 8. Causes of Catastrophic Data LossNatural Disaster• Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Micro-bursts• Floods & Infrastructure Failures Are You• Fires• Lightning• Power Surges Ready?Man-made Disaster• Viruses, Mal-Spyware• Theft, external & internal• Hardware damaged• Software corrupted• Human error
  9. 9. Causes of Catastrophic Data Loss1. Cost of IT System failure far exceeds the cost of repair & recovery a) Lost receivables b) Employee time to re-enter data c) Financial performance penalties levied by regulatory agencies or contract SLAs d) $20 Million annual revenue equates to $10,000 per hour of lost productivity – without penalties!*It is not IF the system breaks, but WHEN
  10. 10. A 1,000 Foot View Network Operations Center Secondary Data Center Primary Data Center
  11. 11. Solution Details1. A Microsoft Windows Server only - no desktops a) Set up network shares for critical desktop info2. A NAS is required at each end-client location3. Block Level Backups vs. File-level a) Eliminates costly backup software and agents.4. Incremental Forever Methodology-near real-time backup (every 15 minutes).5. Security -256 AES Encryption on NAS and off-site
  12. 12. Restoration1. Restoration a) Include all servers with critical data or used for remote access2. Data available for restoration a) Applications b) File folders c) Data files d) SQL Database e) Exchange Database f) Individual e-mail messages
  13. 13. Virtualization1. Bare metal virtualization on dissimilar hardware2. No need to keep array of different format tape drives for restoration of archived data3. Conversion from backup to virtual server in 20 minutes4. In the event of catastrophe, data is accessible via virtual machine until a new network is made available. Data can be restored by imaging the BDR at the data center and shipped overnight to your location5. For security purposes, your data will never be hosted, only stored at the co-location facility. Encryption without the key, is not accessible
  14. 14. Data Tape Issues1. Costly backup software2. Loss of Data a) Tapes not taken off-site b) Lost Tapes c) System not checked to see if backups are working d) Will not backup open files3. Lengthy data restores4. Tape incompatibility with archived data –Legacy equipment5. Disk is cheap –Tape Systems are not a) Modern server disk capacity has outgrown tape capabilities
