Data is the lifeblood of an organization. From accounting data to customer preferences, rotary wing specifications to medical history, the loss of a companies data can be both crippling and expensive. In some cases, it can even cause significant legal issues. Unfortunately, data backup and integrity is something that many organizations – big and small – take for granted. If you are not 100% sure of the reliability of your backup and data recovery procedures, the time to act is now.
Data loss can be caused by hardware failure (56%), human error (26%), software corruption (9%), virus/spyware (4%), or natural disasters (2%). What’s more is that 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within six months of the disaster.
Let Interweave Technologies help your company prevent data loss and expensive down time. We will provide a comprehensive review of your data backup procedures and, if needed, design and implement a fail-safe solution to meet your requirements and your budget.
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.
