InterVision has compiled a list our 7 best IT disaster recovery (IT-DR) resources, in no particular order. We think they are the best starting point for building a strong IT resiliency strategy that both emphasizes data protection and fast recovery for a wide swathe of disruptions.
After engaging with InterVision, the client aligned upon Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to meet their company objectives for uptime following a disruption, as well as provide ongoing data protection.
The firm engaged InterVision to design and implement a Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution that satisfied their board that, in the event of a disaster, they would be able to bring critical systems back online. They satisfied their client audit, as well as proof for other clients, without significant budgetary investment because they leveraged InterVision's expertise and technology. In addition, the IT team was freed up to focus on 80 other competing IT projects because they outsourced disaster recovery to InterVision.
As a result, the firm established a successful DR testing strategy to ensure systems availability across multiple threats. They also gained the ability to meet regulatory requirements for their financial service clients and increased partner confidence in their firm's recovery capability. With InterVision managing the full solution, the IT team was able to focus on other priorities within the firm.
There have been huge strides in technology innovation over the past decade, making data retention faster, more reliable and effective. Two solutions that have emerged are Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Here are a few key differences to know.
Ben Miller, InterVision Senior Solutions Architect, joins Jeff Ton, SVP of Product Development and Strategic Alliances, on this episode for a bit of storytelling. They discuss some of the most...interesting situations involving DR they've been involved in and how to avoid them, even with a lean IT team.
The biggest driver in DR in the Cloud is the utility-like aspect of purchasing infrastructure, because you only pay for what you use.
By waiting to begin the recovery of an application until its preceding application has been fully validated, IT can give calculated attention to each tier for a successful recovery. Organizing and recovering applications in a step-by-step manner gives a more accurate prediction to stakeholders of when your business will fully recover and return IT systems to end users.
Backups vs. Disaster Recovery as a Service: The difference between driving away and heading back to the shop
A common misunderstanding is what Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) is compared to Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). The difference is more than just price and provider.
The value of continuous availability doesn't only extend to servicing customers. It enables employees to perform their job tasks.
