Disaster recovery is subset of a large process known as business continuity planning. Today you would need to ask yourself one simple question: “Can my business continue to function without my critical data, applications and operations?” A firm yes is the only answer that indicates that you do not need a viable disaster recovery plan. At some point your data will be at risk. It could be a machine error, a human error, a virus or even a natural disaster. Not having the proper precautions in place could mean losing it all. Think of your disaster recovery plan as an insurance policy for your data and business should something out of your control happen.
DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Solution) was architected to offer a simple and cost-effective DR platform. Organizations can utilize this platform to replicate their virtual machines/physical servers to a geographically diverse DR site, protecting themselves against both man-made and natural disasters. Spusht makes it easy to recover your data with minimal loss by enabling Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) from minutes and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) from one hour, each based on the complexity of the environment.
A recovery point objective (RPO) is defined by business continuity planning. It is the maximum targeted period in which data might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident. The RPO gives systems designers a limit to work to.
The recovery time objective (RTO) is the targeted duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster (or disruption) in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in business continuity.
Data protection is important, but the ability to recover applications efficiently and quickly is essential in restoring operations and business as usual. When you consider the true cost of downtime, beyond immediate lost revenue and production, it can damage the brand of the organization, reputation and commitment to client SLA’s
