When a disaster strikes, are you prepared? Recent storms and events remind us of the need for data backup and system redundancy. Ensuring the continued operation or rapid recovery of your systems is critical to the smooth operation of a company, and arguably the economy as a whole.
A simple backup used to be enough for peace-of-mind, but not in today’s environment. Interweave Technologies offers three options to keep your operations running smoothly in case of a man-made or natural disaster.
The optimal solution is to have a “system” that completely mirrors your operations. This “mirrored” system is synchronized real-time 24/7 so that if an outage occurs, your operations can be switched to the mirrored system, sometimes in a matter of minutes. This Disaster Recovery solution is perfect for businesses with mission-critical data or operations, such as government and medical applications.
A Virtual Server is a replica of your production server that runs in another location. The primary difference between a Virtual and a Mirrored System is that with a Virtual Server there is minimal hardware required. The Virtual Server can reside on a system at the Interweave Data Center, lowering your initial hardware costs. If your production server fails, the Virtual Server can be restored to a new server.
One of the most common solutions for Data Recovery is Off-Site Data Backup. There are many offerings for this solution, some more proven than others. With Off-Site Data Backup, there is minimal up-front cost, but more ongoing cost. You simply define your “mission critical” data and schedule – as well as any history requirements. We’ll implement your system to meet your needs.
Preparation for continuation or recovery of systems needs to be taken very seriously. The optimal solution for you is largely dependent on your business, your budget, and your data requirements. Let us work with you to develop a Disaster Recovery Solution to protect your data and your business.
