(Natural Disasters | Equipment Failures | Cyberattacks | Human Error)
Disaster recovery planning is critical to business continuity. Many disasters that have the potential to wreak havoc on an IT organization have become more frequent in recent years: Natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires, earthquakes, equipment failures, power outages and
Cyberattacks being the most common.
Many businesses with lean IT teams simply can’t afford to take the time needed to research, implement and fully test disaster recovery plans. DRaaS takes the burden of planning for a disaster off of the organization and puts it into the hands of experts in disaster recovery. It can also be much more affordable than hosting your own disaster recovery infrastructure in a remote location with an IT staff standing by if disaster strikes. If a disaster doesn’t happen, that expensive second infrastructure and staff never get used.
THE SOLUTION – Fully Managed DRAAS
PropelCLOUD DRaaS mirrors your complete infrastructure in fail-safe mode on virtual servers, including compute, storage and networking functions. During a disaster, an organization can continue to run applications— it simply runs them from PropelCLOUD’s private disaster recovery cloud environment instead of from the disaster-affected physical servers. This means recovery time after a disaster can be much faster, or even instantaneous. Once the physical servers are recovered or replaced, the processing and data is migrated back onto them.
DRaaS is becoming the first choice of disaster recovery options for businesses thanks to significantly faster recovery times and lower costs than traditional solutions.
Key Disaster Recovery Features:
1. Continuous replication – Recovery times and recovery points measured in minutes.
2. Bandwidth optimization – Maximize performance and bandwidth by only sending small amounts of data on an ongoing basis.
3. End-to-end encryption – Maintain security & compliance with encryption in flight and at rest in our DR cloud.
4. Self-service or managed testing – Feel confident that your DRaaS solution will work when a disaster occurs.
5. Failback – Get systems and data back to the production site once the issue has been resolved.
6. Professional support – Don’t do it alone. Make sure there’s a team
of experts available.
Backup for your existing Cloud:
Already using the cloud for primary storage? Backing up a second copy with PropelCLOUD is a smart way to protect your data and ensure business continuity. Or if running an on-prem storage-area network with offsite tape backup, you can get an inexpensive third copy of your data that’s immediately accessible in case your local storage goes offline and there isn’t time to retrieve your tape backup. “Instant On" – Disaster Recovery.
