Backup just means making multiple copies, right? Not any more.
Backup now incorporates disaster recovery planning, and has wider ramifications for issues such as compliance and quality certifications. Accepted best practice is for backups to be stored in a 3-2-1 configuration, meaning three copies of data, on two different media, with one off-site. So off-site backups are no longer just nice to have: they’re essential for disaster recovery planning, risk mitigation, and in many cases, compliance reasons.
Yet backup challenges you face are considerable and growing. It may be limited bandwidth, too expensive, you have burgeoning data volumes, or simply lack the resources to build or maintain a true off-site solution.
Off-site backup solutions
One way of instituting off-site backup is to mirror your live production sites, duplicating all systems. However, this approach is costly both to purchase and maintain, and requires capital expenditure that will need to be repeated at each hardware refresh.
So to help you avoid the risk of catastrophic data loss, whether you require native tape support, host-to-host replication, or a backup to a secondary site, StratoGen Backup as a Service is the right solution for you.
