Essentially, a disaster recovery strategy enables the restoration of operations as quickly and efficiently as possible following an IT failure or other disaster.
A complete hardware failure or other type of disaster is not as uncommon as many people think, common causes include: viruses, security breaches, software issues, hardware failure, data corruption, fire, flood, power outages, sabotage or theft. Mitigating against these threats is an obvious starting point, but to be 100% certain that you are doing everything to protect the business a DR plan is needed.
DR solutions make excellent use of virtualisation technology. Virtualised environments enable you to run multiple virtual systems on one physical system. Consequently, you can take copies of your environment, back-up your data and then replicate this to a different location to protect your business.
At Innov8 we implement a range of DR solutions tailored to specific business requirements. Each business is unique and operates in a different way and any disaster recovery solution therefore must reflect this.
