Traditional Backup vs Intelligent Business Continuity

Traditional backup methods, such as tape, disk, or online only, are no longer sufficient. In fact, leading edge business owners are finding them unacceptable, due to their inability to recover data quickly and mitigate downtime. Technological innovations have established a comprehensive new standard, Intelligent Business Continuity [IBC]. Only an IBC solutions will ensure data protection, data security, instant recovery, mitigate downtime and ensure continuity.

TRADITIONAL BACKUP

Can take weeks to recover data after a disaster occurs, if the data is recoverable

High risk of failure due to heavy manual adminstration: 58% of downtime is due to human error

Difficult to test if a backup is working properly

Time consuming and expensive to make a copy of, and store, backups in multiple locations. 61% of SMBs still ship tapes to an off-site location

Backup speeds are slower

Difficult to prioritize important data, files and applications

Physical to virtual conversions can be time consuming and have a high failure rate

Data and backups are at risk when based in only one location, either local or in the cloud

Limited options for encrypting data, may not pass industry regulations [i.e., HIPAA, SOX]

Tape failure rates can exceed 50%

Potential for theft of loss of media

Perceived cost savings are deceiving-average cost of downtime is $163,674 per hour

INTELLIGENT BACKUP

Downtime after a disaster is reduced to hours, minutes, or even seconds

Fully automated backup process – very little manual management required

Automated screenshots are taken of each image-based backup, to verify a successful backup

Each image-based backup is automatically saved in multiple locations for redundancy; local appliance and secure data centers

Quick and efficient transfer of files to off-site data centers, even with low bandwidth or busy networks

Critical data can be prioritized, to be transferred offsite first 

Instant virtualization in mere seconds, due to both proprietary technology and already saved VMDKs

Avoid risk of downtime from a local disaster, as backups are stored in both local device and secure cloud

AES 256 and SSL key-based encryption ensures data issafe both at rest and in transit, to meet industry regulations [i.e. HIPAA, SOX]

Minimal risk of corrupted backups or data loss

The ability to keep your business running in the event of disaster has immeasurable value
