On Premise Disaster Recovery
On premise disaster recovery systems continue to evolve.
If on premise is your go forward plan, we’ve got you covered with experienced DR architects who will help you design, implement and test your DR plan.
But a lot of customers are looking to the future as cloud based services, many of which are not backed up, inevitably make their way into the over all environment. Our DR architects will help you evolve your existing backup system with an eye to the long term plan.
Cloud Disaster Recovery
At day’s end the “Cloud” is just one or more physical data centres you consume resources from.
They’re as susceptible to disaster as any other. Disaster recovery for your cloud services could include data replication to another region within the same cloud provider, or a completely different one. Regardless of your strategy, design, implementation and testing are critical. Our experienced DR architects will help you choose the right tools and build a system designed for your business critical needs.
Hybrid Disaster Recovery
Reality is that most customers will not have “on premise” or “cloud”. They’re going to have a mixture.
On prem might be both your own data centre and some co-location for example. In the cloud, diversity reigns. SaaS, IaaS, PaaS… the list goes on and it changes every day.
DR solutions have to take into account recovery for some services that may well be best served by point solutions, while still trying to construct a plan with as few tools as possible in order that the DR plan not become so complex that it cannot be executed. IT Blueprint has experienced DR architects who can assist in building a DR plan for what you have, and help you evolve it as your footprint changes.
Disaster Recovery To the Cloud
For customers maintaining a second data centre for disaster recovery purposes, the Cloud is a viable option that should be considered.
That second data centre needs servers, power, cooling, production class storage and regular maintenance for something you hope you will never have to use.
In the cloud, all those resources can be spun up on demand. If you never use them, you never pay for them. All you need is a copy of your data. With multiple classes of storage in the Cloud to choose from, you can be up and running anywhere from hours to minutes.
With one click fail over (and back) and RPO (Recovery Point Objectives) under a second easily achievable, DR to the cloud is well worth consideration.
