  21. 21. The ideal cloud backup and DR service  Wednesday, July 6, 2011
  22. 22. The ideal cloud backup and DR service   • A replica of all protected systems frequently updated by incremental backups or snapshots at intervals set by the user for each system, so the user determines the settings according to recovery point and recovery time objectives.Wednesday, July 6, 2011
  23. 23. The ideal cloud backup and DR service   • A replica of all protected systems frequently updated by incremental backups or snapshots at intervals set by the user for each system, so the user determines the settings according to recovery point and recovery time objectives. • Full site, system, disk, and file recovery via a completely user-driven, self-service portal that allows the user the flexibility to choose which file disk or system they want to recover.Wednesday, July 6, 2011
  24. 24. The ideal cloud backup and DR service   • A replica of all protected systems frequently updated by incremental backups or snapshots at intervals set by the user for each system, so the user determines the settings according to recovery point and recovery time objectives. • Full site, system, disk, and file recovery via a completely user-driven, self-service portal that allows the user the flexibility to choose which file disk or system they want to recover. • Fast SLA-based data recovery. Recovery is what backup is all about, and there can be no compromise when choosing a cloud service for backup and DR. The SLA is negotiated up front, and the customer pays for the SLA required.Wednesday, July 6, 2011
