Disaster recovery is crucial for every organisation: We make it reliable, simple and affordable!
Managed Disaster Recovery
It is not surprising that organisations are becoming increasingly concerned about the continuity of their IT environments. Company processes that are fully IT-dependent are indispensable and take up an increasingly critical role. Any incident that results in a disruption to service can be a significant cost to the company, not just financially but also in terms of public image. At the same time, the number of cyberattacks is increasing at a frightening rate, with a corresponding risk to companies.
Ransomware and power outages make up 60% of Disaster Recovery Events.
Although many organisations realise the importance of implementing a robust Disaster Recovery (DR) solution for business continuity, traditional DR solutions can be complicated, expensive and also unpredictable. Despite considerable investment and efforts, many teams are not sure if their DR plan will work when it really counts. The traditional DR model is also very inefficient. At the very least, organisations must keep a second, completely separate data centre operational. All expansions and modifications in the primary data centre must also be carried out in the DR data centre.
These challenges have led to Disaster Recovery migrating to the Cloud at a tremendous pace. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is substantially lower thanks to the efficiency of the Cloud. Through the simple function of this Cloud service, periodical testing of the DR Service is possible, which in turn also makes the outcome predictable and reliable.
This is where ITQ Managed Recovery comes into the picture. ITQ uses VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery. This SaaS service allows replication – complete or granular per application – to cheap, pay-as-you-go cloud storage. These replicated applications can be fully automatically restored to a VMware Cloud environment at the push of a button and can even be started on-demand. And as you pay according to your use in the cloud, the consumption of the VMware Cloud environment is only charged for when actually used. Compare this to the traditional model, where you are required to always keep a second data centre fully operational, and it will be immediately apparent why this cloud-based solution is so much more efficient!
On-Demand and easy to use
Quick recovery is often important for DR. A unique aspect of VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery is the ability to start VMs without having to wait for data to be fully restored from low-cost cloud storage to VMware Cloud’s high-performance storage. Because the VMs are also started in the cloud on a VMware Cloud environment, no conversion of the VMs needs to take place and they can be started immediately.
The time savings this achieves is essential, for example when quickly testing multiple restore points during ransomware recovery and forensic investigation.
The SaaS-based management console is clear and easy to use. Essential for a successful DR! DR health checks are automatically performed every 30 minutes and DR plans can be easily tested in a fully isolated test environment.
