  10. 10. Essentials For Recovery Two components of Backup & Disaster Recovery Safeguarding your data Protecting your Servers
  11. 11. Key Steps For Continuation Backup entire server with ability to restore to nonStep 1 similar hardware quickly and easily Keep a copy of these server images off-siteStep 2 to cater for every Disaster Recovery scenario Access to both Hot Spare Servers and a Virtual ServerStep 3 Platform to restore your server images
  12. 12. Access To Your Restored Servers What would you do if this happened to your offices? We can recover your servers to our virtual server platform but what computers would your staff use to access them Office computers are likely to have been destroyed Home computers are unlikely to be loaded with the relevant applicationsAs a minimum: Keep a copy of all application software and licences off-site.We can also: Provide a ‘virtual PC’ platform preconfigured with your applications and through which you can access your recovered servers - Access to this ‘virtual PC’ platform can be from anywhere using ‘Remote Desktop’
  13. 13. Other Considerations  What are your critical IT services and applications  Draw up a list of your critical staff that need to remain productive  Make sure all bases are covered – Outside of IT what else requires consideration to keep your business both functioning and productive  Review and update your Disaster Recovery plan every year
  14. 14. How Our Solution Works?  We install a Disaster Recovery Appliance at your offices  The first Backup of your server is a complete image of the hard drives and every Backup thereafter is incremental  Incremental Backups can be taken as often every 15mins and can be consolidated into daily, weekly and monthly Backups  To reduce storage requirements Backups can be deleted when no longer required and separate retention policies can be set at each level consolidation
  15. 15. Onsite Data Backup & DR This alone provide a comprehensive onsite data Backup and Disaster Recovery facility Since all Backups are stored in a central database. It is very quick and easy to locate and restore specific files and folders in your ‘point-in-time’ images These Backups are a complete image of your servers and there are built in tools which allow you to easily restore these images to non-similar server hardware
  16. 16. Off-site Disaster Recovery  These Backups can also be encrypted and then transmitted off-site to our data centre – providing you with an up-to-date off-site image of your servers - So as not to impact on your Internet bandwidth this is normally done once a day over-night  In the event of a major disaster i.e. fire or flooding, we can use these off-site server images to completely recreate your server infrastructure - Thus catering for every Disaster Recovery eventuality
  17. 17. Server Recovery Tools • Restore and host your recovered servers Virtual Server • Caters for worst case scenarios i.e. fire and flooding • Perfect for hardware failure if you haven’t got a spare server availableHot Spare Servers • Saves time on sourcing replacement server hardware • Fast recovery serviceHeadstart Restore • For businesses which are time sensitive
