Affordable and efficient cloud-based disaster recovery
It wasn’t that long ago when most people were priced out of disaster recovery. Protecting your environment came down to two choices one double up on existing hardware and just leave it on standby until needed or to restore from old, slow and unreliable backup media.
Fast forward to the cloud infrastructures of today though and things have changed. First your recovery site is virtual not physical, so there are no hardware costs or compatibility requirements, instead you get your own ring-fence resources in an ultra-secure data centers. Second, resources are hosted on a secure infrastructure platform that are also flexible. You can switch them on or off or scale them up or down whenever you need.
In a few clicks you can spin up anything from a single virtual machine to an entire data center to test how things would run in an actual disaster. This not only consumes fewer resources over time than traditional disaster recovery, it uses those resources more efficiently – meaning you can provision less over time and receive a better more cost-effective service.
Whether it’s failing hardware, floods, fires or something else, downtime is about more than just technology. It could cost the whole business more than anticipated in unexpected ways. That’s why speed of recovery is so important.
