DATA AVAILABILITY has become paramount to the success of an organisation. Reliability as well as performance and manageability are critical to ensuring as much data up-time as possible.
The first step in maximising your data availability is to have a good backup in place that takes into account your whole infrastructure, Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). Think you’re protected with just one backup however?
Legacy approaches to data backup and recovery are simply outdated and ineffective. Gone are the days where a single on-premise backup would tick any compliance boxes. To ensure the security and availability of data, backing up to an offsite location as well as the first on-premise should be considered. This can be achieved through a replication job. This has two major benefits:
a) Helps work towards a disaster recovery scenario. Should the initial site be affected by a hardware failure, or complete site failure, the backup offsite will not be affected and could be restored to another location ensuring business continuity.
b) Should data be compromised (accidentally or maliciously, the offsite backup copy would ensure some security and not be affected. A restore could occur, giving peace of mind that a second unaffected copy is available to fall back on.
