The construction of a well-thought-out disaster recovery plan is an essential part of business planning and more important now than ever due to high reliance on instant availability and lower tolerance of downtime. The goal with Disaster Recovery is that the business should be able to continue to operate as close as possible to normally regardless of the nature of the unfortunate event they have experienced. There are two main measurements which play a crucial role in disaster planning and these are the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and the Recovery Time Objective. In short, the RPO is the maximum age of files and documents which an organisation needs to recover to carry on with ‘business as usual’ and the RTO is the maximum amount of downtime that organisation can tolerate without serious issue.
In considering Back Up therefore, the RPO will determine the minimum frequency of back up and the RTO dictates the maximum time any ‘reset’ can take.
Ensuring Business Continuity
The Better IT Disaster Recovery solution offers true peace of mind in knowing that you can retrieve all of your data exactly as it was pre-setback. So, no matter whether it was a natural event, equipment failure or a malware or ransomware attack, you can be back on track, doing business as before without the stress or worry of losing information, time – or customer goodwill. We can recreate a failed server to any virtual or physical machine on either a local network or cloud; secure connections are provided to employees and business can get back to normal – simply and quickly!
Business continuity is ensured as a single machine or entire network can be rebooted almost instantly, even if the entire site has gone down. If malware or ransomware was to blame, the back up data will be taken from a point pre-attack to eliminate the risk of further disruption.
Fastest recovery in the industry
In the industry we speak of two main parameters in Disaster Recovery – Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). The first refers to how far back you can restore data and the second is a measurement of how quickly you can get it to a temporary recovery location. At Better IT we take both RPO and RTO to another level, preferring instead to look at the actual time it takes to not only retrieve the data but to get fully operational, configured exactly as was, in the operational environment. We refer to this measure as the Failback Time Objective – and our solution has the fastest FTO in the industry.Call us
