BACKUP & RECOVERY
Backup & Recovery
It’s not uncommon for IT organizations to report data growth of 40-60 percent per year. To keep up, you need backups that run as fast as possible without disrupting production activity.
At Virtech, we have extensive experience with Backup & Recovery technologies which enable us to deliver comprehensive data protection solutions. We provide end-to-end solutions, starting from design, architecture, and implementations.
Information is the most valuable asset a business owns, yet many organizations do not ensure that their data is secure, fully protected and available at all times.
With today’s average data growth between 25 to 40%, organizations face ever-growing challenges managing their data backups and recovering data within ever-reducing recovery time frames. Legacy backup and recovery technologies are prone to failure and may be too slow for data backup and recovery.
✓ Long Backup Windows –The traditional model of full and incremental backups becomes unmanageable as data sizes grow and full backup windows extend beyond SLA requirements.
✓ Long Recovery Times –While backup windows are important, it is recovery that really matters. If you cannot recover your data then why have the backup in the first place?
✓ DR Challenges –Data is even more critical than ever to today’s businesses and so users have to plan for both local backup and recovery and disaster recovery. Traditional backup and recovery methodologies create significant DR challenges due to restoration complexity and windows. As a result, many companies limit their focus on DR and if they do focus on it, tests are run infrequently. This leads to unreliable DR plans and processes and a significant risk that business will not be able to recover from a DR event if one were to occur.
✓ Multiple RPOs –Different applications mandate different recovery point objectives which typically results in multiple different protection tools. As a result, users struggle with many point solutions adding in cost in management and reduction in reliability.
✓ Tape Challenges –Low confidence in tape backup for long-term data retention and data access.
