Local and Offsite Data Backup
How long does it take to recover a server from your current backup Solution?
Recovering a server from traditional backup is SLOW and PAINFUL! Restoring a failed server from offsite backups only is NOT AN OPTION! It would take DAYS to download your full server data and operating system over the Internet. If your data is stored locally on a server, you need a local backup.
While there are viable backup options still available to tape or local USB disk, we recommend upgrading to a more robust and efficient.method which allows for rapid restore and return to business functionality without the need to wait for lengthy restores from disk or tape.
The solution is a Backup Disaster Recovery (BDR) unit that is located in the office, backing up your data and creating a virtual copy of your server(s). You can restore files easily, but the best part is that you can recover your whole server operation within minutes.
Local control and management of server backups
In less than 30 minutes after a disaster or data loss, the device can be configured to function as a standby server. This eliminates costly downtime due to server hardware failures. The system virtualizes servers directly from the backup image so there is no need to convert backup images to virtual hard disks.
The system also offers offsite storage that provides the option of synchronizing your backups offsite to secure collocation facilities, all through an industry standard 256-bit encrypted tunnel. You can be secure in the knowledge your backups have not been compromised during transfer.
Should your site become destroyed or compromised, you’re protected. We will ship you a replacement BDR using next day air, and you can virtualize your servers on it while you wait for your replacement hardware.
