    Small Business Backup & Disaster Recovery Small Business Backup & Disaster Recovery Presentation Transcript

    • BACKUP & DISASTER RECOVERY WEBINAR
      Presented By: Daniel J. Haurey, Tel. (973) 770-0500
    • ASSUMPTIONS
      You have at least one server running a Windows network operating system
      You're either interested in or participate in the ongoing safeguarding and protection of your organization’s data
    • TWO GOALS FOR TODAY
      To educate the attendees on technology and industry trends that are allowing us to take advantage of robust backup and business continuity options that were formerly out of reach for most organizations
      To inform you that you have a choice over traditional tape that offers rapid recovery time and continuance of operations during a failure
      WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO STOP RELYING EXCLUSIVELY ON TAPE FOR YOUR BACKUP NEEDS
    • AGENDA
      DEFINE THE JARGON
      TWO CRITICAL PIECES OF THE RECOVERY PROCESS
      CONFRONTING YOUR INDIVIDUAL RISK TOLERANCE
      INTRODUCTION TO DISK BASED BACKUP TECHNOLOGY
      INTRODUCTION TO VIRTUALIZATION AND CONTINUITY
      PREVENT, MANAGED BACKUP & DISASTER RECOVERY
      QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
    • IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING OUR DIGITAL ASSETS
      A recent study discovered that, of companies experiencing a “major loss” of computer records, 43 percent never reopened, 51 percent closed within two years of the loss, and a mere 6 percent survived over the long-term•
      •Cummings, Maeve; Haag, Stephen; and McCubbrey, Donald. 2003. Management information systems for the information age.
    • IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING OUR DIGITAL ASSETS
      “Numerous surveys reveal that second to mis-configuration of the backup software, the leading cause of backup failure is human error”“As a monotonous, thankless job, the shuttling of tapes in and out of a backup tape drive is frequently delegated to employees without the benefit of professional training, who perform the task as their lowest priority on the way out the door”
    • WHAT IS BUSINESS CONTINUITY?WHAT IS DISASTER RECOVERY?
      STRATEGIC
      • Business Continuity encompasses Disaster Recovery, Backups and even business succession planning. It provides the strategy and process involved to make sure your company survives the loss of key individuals, data, equipment, or facilities. How do we continue operations if happens?
      • Disaster Recovery typically refers how companies respond or recover from actual disasters, like a flood, fire, earthquake, theft, etc.
      TACTICAL
    • INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
      TWO COMPONENTS OF BACKUP & DISASTER RECOVERY
      SAFEGUARD THE ACTUAL DATA
      PROVIDE FOR CONTINUITY OF IT SERVICES
    • SAFEGUARD THE DATA
      BACK IT UP! (make copies of the data)
      Most common backup destinations:
      Tape
      External hard disks
      Network Attached Storage
      Offsite services that backup over Internet to a remote datacenter
    • PROVIDE FOR CONTINUITY
      Allow for continuance of IT services:
      during failure
      during recovery process
      Allow email to continue to flow
      Allow access to documents
      Allow access to software
      Allow BUSINESS and IT to CONTINUE
      THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE BACKING UP (COPYING DATA)BUT NOT PROVIDING FOR CONTINUITY
    • HOW DO I PROVIDE CONTINUITY?
      UP UNTIL RECENTLY…
      • NOT VERY EASILY!
      • NOT COST-EFFECTIVELY
      • CLUSTERING?
      • SPARE SERVERS?
      • EXPENSIVE AND COMPLEX DATA REPLICATION
    • WHAT IS OUR TOLERANCE FOR DOWNTIME
      Most people claim that they can be “down” anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days
      REALITY
      “after a moderate to major failure, most people with tape backup, or, data, copied to tape, are looking at anywhere from two days to two weeks, depending on parts availability or delivery”
    • ADVANCES IN TECHNOLOGY AND OTHER TRENDS MAKE BUSINESS CONTINUITY POSSIBLE AND AFFORDABLE
      ENTER DISK-BASED BACKUP
      ENTER VIRTUALIZATION
    • WHAT IS DISK BASED BACKUP?
      Utilize fast, inexpensive hard drives, rather than tape for your backup operations
    • DISK BASED BACKUP?(IN LIEU OF TAPE)
      WHY NOW?
      WHY DIDN’T WE USE DISK EARLIER?
    • STORAGE PRICES HAVE PLUMMETED
    • STORAGE PRICES HAVE PLUMMETEDmassive storage / minimal cost
    • MASSIVE CAPACITYVERY LOW COST
      HARD DISK
      COSTS
    • Organizations need to look beyond just copying data to tape
      The simple copying of data to tape is not a strategy. Rather, when it works flawlessly, it merely safeguards your data and is one piece of a two-part process
      Providing Business Continuity, or the ability to keep working in the face of a failure is critical
      Most companies have a very false sense of security in tape or a distorted view of the recovery process and actual time needed to fully recover from a failure or disaster
      Industry pricing trends and technological advances have allowed for smaller organizations and those with a tighter IT budgets to move from tape alone, to robust disaster recovery which provides for business continuity
      Make no mistake about it, using tape alone leaves you and your organization vulnerable to considerable downtime
      SUMMARY
    • TAPE VS. DISK
    • COMPONENTS OF AN IRONCLAD BACKUP AND DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN
      • FREQUENT BACKUPS (MORE THAN EVERY 24 HOURS)
      • HEALTH AND INTEGRITY OF BACKUPS MONITORED
      • BLOCK LEVEL BACKUP, VERSUS FILE LEVEL BACKUP
      • BACKUP IS ENCRYPTED FOR SECURITY REASONS
      • FAILOVER AND BARE METAL RESTORE CAPABILITIES
      • OFFSITE STORAGE CAPABILITY
    • THE ANSWER
      PREVENT™ | Managed Backup & Disaster Recovery
      • Frequent backups (as frequent as every 15 minutes)
      • Failover capability through virtualization of servers
      • Backups are monitored 24 hours per day, 7 days per week
      • Security (256 AES encryption on and off-site)
      • Bare Metal Restores to dissimilar hardware
      • Optional backup of your backup to an offsite datacenter
    • HOW DOES IT WORK?
