Disasters severely impact businesses everyday. It is not always the large headline grabbing natural disasters that can hurt your business. Something as seemingly as innocuous as a hard drive failure could cost your business tens of thousands of dollars in downtime. Our systems can not only backup your data onsite and offsite, but also provide backup systems that can be placed into service in just minutes.
Safety in NumbersIt is no longer acceptable to have just one backup on site anymore. Your data is too valuable and reducancy is too inexpensive to not have both local and cloud-based backups. These backups should be synchronized at least daily while also not hindering employee productivity due to slow Internet access speeds. It should also not be necessary for everyone to “log off because we need to backup”.
Local BackupIt is important to not rely on only a cloud backup. A local copy is important it is case it is necessary to restore a large amount of data due to a substantial loss or corruption of information. Your business could experience lengthy downtime while you wait for the data to download from the cloud.
On Demand Fail OverLotus Intelligent Business Continuity is much more than just backup. This is a backup server ready to replace a failed server instantly on-site or in the cloud if necessary.
Screenshot VerificationEveryday we mount a virtual version of each of your servers and start it up. We then take a screenshot of the successful start and save it for proof of a valid backup.
Traditional Data Backup Can’t Keep Up
|Traditional Backup||Intelligent Business Continuity|
|Recovery can take days or weeks following a disaster||Recovery is reduced to minutes and seconds|
|High risk for human error||Full automation backup process|
|Difficult to test if backup is working properly||Screenshot backup verification; easy to test backup|
|Expensive and timely to make multiple backups||Each backup is saved in local appliance and bi-coastal data centers|
|Backup speeds are slower||Backup speeds are fast; Critical data can be prioritized|
|Physical to virtual conversions can be time consuming and have a high failure rate||Incremental backups can be instantly virtualized rather than the entire backup chain|
|No redundant backup in multiple locations||Automatic redundant backup – allowing your business to run off the secure cloud in event of a disaster|
|Limited options for encryption; data may not pass industry regulations||AES 256 and SSL-based encryption ensures data is safe and meets industry regulations|
|When recovering data tape failure rate exceeds 50%||Minimal risk of corrupted backups or data loss|
|Potential for theft||Off-site backups stored in SSAE 16 data centers|
