Backup Challenges for Enterprises
Don't know how to assess a suitable backup solution
There are various backup solutions on the market, and the factors to be considered are complex, which make it difficult to judge
Trial and error costs caused by the absence of experience
Organizational IT personnel have no professional backup knowledge and experience, which may cause setting errors and restore failures
Enormous cost and workload for backup operations
Save the total cost of backup investment and enhance data protection through backup modernization
Common Backup Myths
Only local backup, no off-site backup
It cannot be remedied when encounter a major unexpectable disaster, such as earthquakes, fires, power shortage and human error.
No consideration of the maximum amount of data loss (RPO)
It may lead to the loss of important data, and it may be necessary to spend high costs to rebuild the data.
Put internal shared data and backup data on the same device
If the hardware is damaged, all data will be lost, which is equivalent to putting eggs in the same basket.
Use off-site/cloud backup to make up for the shortcomings of pure local end
Enterprises do not need to invest in and maintain hardware, and can complete deployment in a relatively short period of time, greatly reducing construction and management costs.
Consider RTO and RPO for your business
RTO is the abbreviation of Recovery Time Objective, which refers to how long the enterprise plans to restore the service to normal after the accident occurs. RPO is the abbreviation of Recovery Point Objective, which refers to the time point of the latest backup by the enterprise at the time of the accident, that is, how much data the enterprise can tolerate loss.
Follow the 3-2-1 principle for back-up
According to the 321 principle, there must be 3 copies of files stored in 2 different forms, and 1 copy is off site. For example, if a file has two backups, one on a traditional hard disk and the other on a NAS, and the location of the NAS is different from that of the traditional hard disk, it complies with the 321 backup principle.
Local / Off-site Backup
With expertise in local/off-site backup, we can help you customize and plan the most suitable backup solution for your enterprise while assisting with the daily maintenance workload.
Assist in the construction of servers/storage devices off site to store data, connect the two networks, provide real-time operation functions, and maintain continuous service.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
DR service focuse on the recovering speed to maintain uninterrupted business, which is in line with investment benefits and truly realizes "Always-on Business".
Backup Recovery Test
Use disaster drills to verify backup availability, confirm service recovery time and system recovery sequence, and enterprises can formulate SOPs for disasters on this basis.
How to find the best backup method for your business?
Formulate according to business operation and risk control goals
- RTO/RPO: RTO (Recovery Time Objective): How long can the enterprise tolerate the downtime? ; RPO (Recovery Point Objective): how much data loss can be tolerated at most?
And classify data by importance
- Hot data vs cold data: cold data refers to the important but infrequently used data, which is not expected to be accessed within 30 days; hot data refers to the important and commonly used data, which is recently frequently accessed.
Hand it over to the Freedom Systems for one-stop backup solution
Assess the company's operating priorities and information environment, plan and deploy software and cloud configurations
Execute backup scheduling based on enterprise data aging requirements, backup targets, network architecture, etc.
Monitoring and Operation
Execute backup mechanism setting and monitoring and adjustment, and the technical maintenance team regularly manages the backup
Implement scheduled recovery drills, disaster immediate response recovery, and environmental adjustment consulting
Backup is to copy the data you want to protect, so that you have a backup file of the target data; replication is to copy the important IT system of the enterprise in different geographical locations (off-site) for backup, in case of emergency, IT systems can be switched for backup to maintain business operations and reduce the impact of disasters.
