A business is only as good as its back up solution.
As part of our setup and quoting process, we provide recommendations on suitable backup processes. We advocate keeping multiple backups of operating infrastructure.
We offer a variety of backup solutions, each designed to cater for budget limitations while allowing for easy restoration in the event of a data loss or corruption scenario.
Designing solutions for RTO & RPO.
When disaster strikes, the two most important numbers to consider often relate to RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective). We can design and implement strategies to optimise both.
Usually, the first two questions a CEO will ask the IT department are:
- How long before we can get back online? (RTO)
- How much data have we lost, and how far back do we have to go to recover? (RPO)
In the data retention game, having an RTO and RPO for varying levels of faults is not uncommon. Most businesses with a heavy investment in their IT infrastructure will have a matrix of Impact, Risk and Resolution pathways.
Where Impact is considered high, an RTO is usually the main focus: getting back online within minutes in the event of an unlikely, catastrophic failure. Under most fault conditions, we aim to provide Recovery Time Objectives of single-digit minutes.
Whether Impact is considered high or not, if there is a high risk of data corruption or disaster, an RPO is often considered more important. While getting infrastructure running is a priority, it is often more important that businesses guard against loss of data when restoring from a backup or waiting for recovery.
