  3. 3. How to Be Protected DR by Duplication DR by Back-up 3 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  4. 4. DR by Duplication • Focus is on protecting application – Local cluster – Duplicate hot site • High performance, but at what price? – Near Zero RTO, RPO • High cost – Duplicate infrastructure – Cost x2 4 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  5. 5. DR by Back-up • Focus is on protecting data – Tape back-up – Imaging • Poor performance – Slow RTO, RPO (days) • Cost effective, but at what price? – How do we get the data back in to a useable state? – How long to rebuild the server? 5 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
