The cloud is increasingly the platform of choice for critical applications. It provides the responsiveness, scalability, and flexibility needed to meet changing business needs. At the same time, it is essential that your cloud services are backed up and protected, so that you can quickly and easily recover in the case of a disaster.
Cloud400 DR provides automated, cloud-based disaster recovery protection for all your critical applications. It is a complete solution that includes a cloud-based backup server, comprehensive backup and recovery software, a cloud-based recovery server, and 24×7 monitoring and support services. With IBM i hosting, you can be confident that your critical applications will be quickly and easily recovered in the event of a disaster.
Cloud400 DR provides the following benefits:
- Comprehensive protection for all your critical applications
- Automated backup and recovery
- 24×7 monitoring and support
- Cloud-based recovery and billing
How it Works
In fact, the only manual requirement is to install the protection agent on a cluster member, where it will take approximately 60 seconds to complete. You can also configure a local recovery server, in which case the agent will automatically take over and assume full responsibility for backup recovery.
You can build upon your backup infrastructure quickly by adding additional protection clusters or using Recoverpoint for security. To get full visibility and assurance of the services that Cloud400 DR provides, CloudDrift’s cloud-based monitoring and alerts system continuously receives monitoring messages from the Cloud400 DR server cluster and instantly notifies you if there is an issue with your recovery process.
With Cloud400 DR, there are no limitations on the number of business units or users that can be protected—or any restrictions on the number of network locations. Customers of varying sizes have reported recovering an entire data center, with several petabytes of applications data, in less than 24 hours. The end-to-end Cloud400 DR service is fully scalable, consistent, and customizable to meet your business’s requirements.
Additional Features for Cloud400 DR:
Just imagine for a moment a highly-regulated financial services corporation where the unexpected comes about on a regular basis. Imagine losing millions of dollars, along with an undetermined number of thousands of user and asset data points (transactions, transactions data, chatroom data, etc.), when the financial institution comes under intense regulatory scrutiny for massive capital withdrawals and losses.
So how does a scenario like this get handled in most cloud application systems? Cloud400 DR handles a scenario like this by backing up data during day and night every day, and it will continue to do so until some operator-driven event completes the restoration process (user notice, the help desk gets in touch, etc.). But the whole process is powered by a high-traffic, clustered data storage platform that provides incredible backup and recovery.
