Traditional Backup vs. Intelligent Business Contiunity

Traditional backup methods such as tape, disk, and strict NAS devices are no longer sufficient. In fact, leading edge business owners are finding them unacceptable. Technological innovations have set new solution standard: Intelligent Business Continuity, going beyond data protection; delivering automated assurance, continuous protection, secured storage, and instant recovery.  

 

TRADITIONAL BACKUP

 

 

 

INTELLIGENT BUSINESS CONTINUITY

 

Can take weeks to recover data after a disaster occurs

 

 

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

High risk for human error due to heavy manual administration: 60% of on-site disasters are due to human error1 

 

 

Full automation backup process—very little manual management required

Difficult to test if a backup is working properly

 

Automated screenshots are taken and reported to ensure each backup was successful and can be booted at any time

 

Time consuming and expensive to make copies of backups or to store backups in multiple locations

 

 

Each backup is saved in multiple locations: local appliance and bi-coastal data centers

 

Backup speeds are slower

 

Quick and efficient transfer of files to off-site data centers, even with low bandwidth or busy network environments. Critical data can be prioritized to be transferred off-site first

 

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

 

Incremental backups (rather than the entire backup chain) can be instantly virtualized

 

No redundant backups in multiple locations, leaving high risk for original backup systems to be destroyed

 

Eliminates downtime in the event of a disaster by allowing your business to run off the secure cloud

 

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

 

AES 256 and SSL key-based encryption ensures data is safe and meets industry regulations (i.e., HIPAA, SOX)

 

When recovering data, tape failure rates exceed 50%

 

 

Minimal risk of corrupted backups or data loss

 

Potential for theft of loss of media

 

Off-site backups stored in SSAE 16 data centers
