Cloud Backups & Replication

We recommend having both Cloud Replication and a Cloud Backup system in place; it will significantly decrease the chance of interruptions in business operations and allows you to restore data from a point-in-time backup.

CompuCorp offers both Cloud Replication and Cloud Backup for clients.

 

 

Cloud Replication technology safeguards data in the face of a catastrophic event by replicating or reproducing the servers and storage to an entirely different geographical area, allowing the systems to fail over and replicate at the new location within minutes. This technology ensures business continuity and diminishes or eliminates the need for an active-active configuration–and it costs significantly less.

Cloud Backup can provide two general solutions:

Backup/recovery of  your local systems to a cloud-based system, or backup/recovery of  your cloud-based systems to a cloud-based backup. Backup/recovery systems use point-in-time data, so there is a limit on how many backups can be stored and how long they can be stored for (e.g., 1 backup once a week for 4 backups a month, with a limit of 50 backups saved). This dictates the amount of backed-up data that can be restored. Most backup and recovery systems also utilize compression technologies that significantly decrease the amount of data stored, which might allow for more backups.

As an example of data backup/recovery of a local system to a cloud-based system

A business might have several locations where each location has local production servers and on-site storage, making them susceptible to a disaster at any location. However, these locations could use cloud backup to safeguard their servers and storage from any type of disaster.

 

Each location would have their own data/records retention policy (an organization’s standard procedure/process for retaining data and information for compliance or business reasons) and would backup/restore independently from the other locations. In the event of a catastrophe, that location (or any location affected) could restore their data from the cloud.
