How do I determine my back up and recovery windows?
To get started, consider a Business Impact Analysis to identify recovery time objectives or when downtime affects your business' ability to operate. Once you've gained that insight and identified your backup windows, you can then develop your disaster recovery plan.
Here are some things to consider when you're thinking about data backups.
How fast you can transfer data?
What's the distance (if using a co-location)?
Where will you house your backups?
You should also consider whether to house your data via co-location or upload them into the cloud (our partner, Flexential has some helpful offerings). To understand which works best for your business, it will come down to the size of your company and the amount of data you need to transfer. We offer various solutions to help you with this aspect of your disaster recovery plan.
How do I simplify my data backup solutions?
The right backup solutions go a long way, but so does a team of experts, especially when you don't have the manpower. A few things that could help simplify your data backup solutions are:
Implementing virtual machines
Investing in data center co-locations or cloud-based backups
Eliminating VM Sprawl
You can achieve this with the right tech solution. Ask us about our backup solutions from these best in class data center partners:
Why should I invest in Data Protection?
As the business world embraces virtualization and multi-cloud environments, hackers are finding more ways to steal or ransom your important data. Additionally, they’ve been using DDoS attacks to overload your systems with malicious data traffic, which can incapacitate your data center and disrupt business operations. Data protection is more than just an out of the box solution. For effective protection, you need someone who knows the ins and outs of a data center to build a strategy. Getting started with a Business Impact Analysis can help you determine how critical your applications are to your business, how much to spend, and where to invest your budget.
Investing in your data protection strategy can help improve your business continuity, limit your chances for disruption, and provide a better user experience for your customers. This approach is cost effective and will save you countless headaches in the long haul.
