Why is disaster recovery important?
Today’s business environment is heavily reliant on technology and business applications, more so than ever before. The inability to access key applications and data for a matter of days due to a crisis could put a company out of business. Our disaster recovery solution ensures that business applications and data will be safe and accessible, no matter what.
What’s the difference between CloudRecovery and a traditional backup plan?
The main benefits of CloudRecovery are based on using outside, higher functioning cloud resources for data center synchronization. Improved technology has made recovery systems more flexible, cost-effective and automatic. Convergia’s CloudRecovery helps businesses recover from a disaster in mere minutes or hours, rather than days or weeks. Convergia’s premiere disaster recovery and business continuity product ensures customer data is available in the event of a crisis, whether flood, fire, rogue employee, power outage, or anything else. This enables businesses to keep their production servers, storage and applications on-site but add off-site servers for backup and disaster recovery in secure infrastructure that we own. There are many differentiators including scalability, reliability, recovery and peace-of-mind. We have a 100% uptime guarantee and a reliable team providing 24x7x365 monitoring and support. You pay only for what you use with our pay-as-you-go plan, which can work for businesses both large and small. Our infrastructure resides in Tier 3 Class 1 data centers, which provide the highest level of availability and have multiple advantages over customer-based or lower-tier data centers. CloudRecovery provides support for multiple operating systems and uses enterprise-level NetApp for backup. Convergia’s recovery testing and de-duplication allow for the fastest RTO in the industry.
What’s the difference between CloudRecovery Back-Up and CloudRecovery Failover?
CloudRecovery Back-Up is a storage-on-demand, data storage solution that gives businesses complete control over the storage, distribution and retrieval of data from any location, anytime, using the CloudPortal. It includes features such as NetApp FAS (Fabric Attached Storage), server image backup default to 4 times daily at 6-hour increments, and snapshots held for 2 days at default. Its benefits include rapid implementation, elimination of upfront capital expenditures on hardware and ongoing maintenance, and the ability to rapidly deploy additional storage on an as-needed basis. Convergia’s Cloud Engineers work hand-in-hand with customers to ensure the correct amount of backup has been calculated, and the data will be uploaded to the NetApp’s advanced Storage Area Network (SAN) systems. The changed data will be cloned successfully and ongoing replication will take place.
CloudRecovery Failover equips customers with the necessary tools to make sure their mission critical applications are available during any type of crisis. It includes all the features of the backup solution and adds spin up virtual servers kept in shadow mode. Additionally, in the vent of a disaster, these servers are put into production and users are repointed. When initiated, CloudRecovery brings a business back up in production mode within the Convergia cloud in a matter of minutes or hours. Convergia provisions virtual servers in shadow mode in the cloud for each of the critical applications and the primary servers at the customer premises are set to replicate data to these virtual ones. The customer’s data resides in the cloud and remain accessible by the shadow servers in the event of a disaster.
