Backup and Disaster Recovery Made Easy with the StoneFly DR365 Appliance

It is of paramount importance that users completely understand the storage options so as to strategize around maximum flexibility and control.

What are Data Protection and Disaster Recovery?

Data Protection

Data protection or referred to as backup and restore, is the process of protecting data from loss, corruption or accidental deletion. Data protection comes into play in many cases like: a user who accidentally deletes an important directory or file, hardware failures that result in data losses, coding errors that cause a database table to become unreadable.

There are various risks attached to such losses. An organization can lose valuable data which may result in great losses.

Organizations might not be able to meet the legal requirements due to the loss of data, as there will be no archiving of data. This will result in law suits and eventual losses.

Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery is the process of restoring a failed service, application or the operations of an entire datacenter to full operational status following a disaster. The disasters can be natural or man-made; the nature of the disasters becomes irrelevant; the extent of the loss caused by the disasters is important. A disaster recovery setup is essential for ensuring business continuity.

Disasters can range from power outages to natural disasters like hurricanes and storms. The risks attached to these disasters are those of data loss. Valuable data can be lost resulting in problems of legal compliance or business continuity.

Disaster Recovery and Data Protection, StoneFly Always Takes Action

With the turn of the century, businesses have prioritized data backup and disaster recovery. The StoneFly DR365 appliance provides customers with backup and replication with the use of many of its features.

  • Virtual Server Protection: Customers can easily mitigate risks by backing up and recovering their virtual machines and hosts on any of the six supported hypervisors – VMware, vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Red Hat Virtualization, Linux KVM and Oracle VM Server.
  • Quick Restore: The DR365 appliance allows to achieve RTOs of 15 seconds or less by starting backup directly from storage as a VMware or Hyper-V VM; no data movement required.
  • SAN Storage Snapshots: Impact of backup processes is reduced on the customers’ infrastructure by offloading VMware VM backup snapshots to NetApp SAN storage.
  • Remote and Automated Recovery: DR365 allows customers to reduce RTOs of remote sites and systems by accessing bootable media and restoring bare-metal servers remotely via wide-area networks (WAN). Automate and orchestrate the recovery by customizing the bootable media with scripting.
  • Backup Blockchains: Customers are at ease to improve regulatory compliance, establish validity of recovery and ensure the authenticity and integrity of backups with blockchain.
  • Active Protection from Ransomware: The DR365 appliance helps to proactively prevent the need to recover and protect data and systems from ransomware attacks by detecting, blocking and reversing suspicious changes to data, backup files and backup agent.

Furthermore, business continuity is enhanced as StoneFly has partnered up with the likes of Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. The partnership has allowed for further options for organizations as they are provided with secure off-site backup and replication with the AWS platforms.
