Protect Your Business from Disasters

Complete Protection for Systems, Applications, and Data

Data loss, ransomware, and compliance requirements are driving today’s disaster recovery strategies. Although the cause of an outage can vary, the solution is the same — you need to be able to recover your systems, applications, and data quickly and completely.

If you think about it, almost everything companies need to operate day to day is supported by an IT network. If key servers or storage devices go down or are held hostage, critical business operations may be shut down until remediation is complete. The impact on your business can be severe. A comprehensive backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solution should focus on the ability to restore operations to their previous level as quickly as possible with minimal loss of data.

What is backup and disaster recovery?

Backup and disaster recovery is the method businesses have to prevent loss of productivity due to service outages, hardware failure, and cyber attack. It requires regular backing up of data and computer systems with the ability to restore data and systems as quickly as possible with minimal loss of data.

What is DR as a service?

Businesses can outsource their disaster recovery (DR) to an outside vendor who provides DR as a service. With this model, backing up and restoration of data is completely managed by the outside vendor.

Backup and disaster recovery services

Local Backup

Our data protection experts work with you to define your backup, recovery, retention, archiving and disaster recovery needs. We then design and implement a customized data protection program by installing an all-in-one purpose-built physical backup appliance in your network to locally protect your data for fast recovery. Our team of backup specialists monitors your backup jobs daily to ensure ongoing protection for your business.

Cloud Backup

While local backup serves a very useful purpose if your data center is still operational, what do you do if your entire data center is taken offline by fire or some other disaster? The answer is cloud backup. The Corserva Cloud Backup service utilizes the installed local backup solution to copy your local backed up data to the highly secure and available Corserva Cloud or a public cloud of your choice. There are no limits to your data protection as our cloud storage options dynamically scale to the capacity of your local backup appliance. Your data is secure in transit and at rest with AES-256 encryption and is stored based on your custom defined retention policy designed to meet your business, compliance, and regulatory requirements.

Combine our local and cloud backup services with the ability to test and run your critical servers in the cloud in the event of a disaster or on-premise failure. Achieve 100% automated testing for continued assurance that your systems are fully recoverable and protected from downtime. Guarantee your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) with push-button fully automated disaster recovery fail-over and fail-back.

How do managed disaster recovery services work?

  1. A physical backup appliance is installed within your network for fast backups and restores.
  2. Copies of your data image and server image are encrypted and replicated to your private cloud, hosted in your provider’s offsite data center.
  3. Your provider performs ongoing testing of your backups to verify your information is fully recoverable and meets your specified Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO).
  4. A warm standby disaster recovery environment is maintained within your private cloud.
  5. When outages occur, information can be restored from the local appliance or private cloud, depending on severity.

10 Questions to Ask Before Selecting an MSP

10 Questions to Ask Before
Selecting a Managed Service Provider

What is business continuity?

Backup and archiving are the first line of defense to ensure that you have the foundation for an effective recovery and continuity program. The backup and archive information serves as the foundation for your ability to recover. Although many providers lump backup, archiving, recovery, and business continuity into the same bucket, they are actually very different aspects of a business’ ability to recover from a disaster scenario.

Backup

…is the process whereby copies of data files and images are kept onsite and offsite in order to have the latest versions of databases, applications, and permissions if disaster strikes. This data is typically available daily, weekly, and for the prior month.

Archiving

involves the off-line retention of weekly, monthly, and annual copies of the rolling backup files. Archiving can become critical for legal and compliance requirements as well as certain instances where ransomware has been dormant for an extended period of time within a backup file, whereby copies of weekly, monthly, and annual copies of the backup are kept to ensure availability.

Recovery

is the process whereby either local or cloud backup services are utilized to recover one or more files or IT devices back into full production mode. Typically, a single onsite device that has crashed can be recovered through the use of the on-site backup capability. For outages involving a large number of devices caused by a more serious facility, weather, or malware issue, the cloud backup capability must be utilized for recovery.

Business continuity

…is the set of processes and capabilities that you utilize to launch your company back into business in the face of serious IT environment issues where significant recovery effort is required. Business continuity starts with a plan to communicate the current issue to customers, employees, and vendors, and ends with the specific plan to utilize IT systems available through cloud recovery during the process of restoration. If you are working with an experienced vendor, you should receive a certificate that indicates your expected RTO and RPO (see definitions below) in the case of a disaster.

RTO (Recovery Time Objective)

…is the length of time you can operate without your primary IT systems. To determine the answer, ask your staff to determine the impact to your business if your primary IT system is down for one hour, 6 hours, or one day. Think broadly to determine the overall financial impact, including  lost revenue, lost employee productivity, impact on brand reputation, and other factors that may impact your business. This will be of significant help when you are evaluating solution cost.

RPO (Recovery Point Objective)

…is the term that describes how current your data will be at the time of recovery of your systems. Many businesses choose to perform nightly backups at the end of the day. In this case, if you have a total disk failure at 12:00 PM the following day, you would be able to recover data from  the prior day. In this case RPO would be characterized as up to one day of lost data.

What is a backup and disaster recovery plan?

A backup and disaster recovery plan is a written plan with metrics defining goals for Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO). This plan should be regularly tested against to verify that you are meeting the objectives.

Cloud Backup & Disaster Recovery

Make sure your data is always available even if your physical location is down.

Protect data without heavy infrastructure investment

Business information is ever-growing in data size and complexity. As business demands expand to include mobile and cloud-based access, companies are forced to adapt with the times. Data must be available and accessible from more than just the office. This opens up a whole new set of challenges regarding security and data protection.

Managed backup and disaster recovery

These challenges are pushing business leaders to adopt new cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions, balancing the need to maintain their current solutions with newer alternatives. Tape backups and off-site storage are labor-intensive, expensive, and unreliable. Cloud-based backup is a way for organizations to protect their data without the need for heavy infrastructure investment.

Things you should look for in a cloud-based backup solution

Daily backups are a given, but your partner in business continuity should have an emphasis on recovery of data — backups are just one piece of the puzzle. Off-site replication will protect you from natural disasters. Your MSP should have the necessary technical expertise in online storage.

What is cloud backup and disaster recovery?

Cloud-based backup and disaster recovery is a way for organizations to protect their data without the need for heavy infrastructure investment. Instead of (or in addition to) backing up to a physical appliance, data can be backed up to a private or public cloud.

Corserva’s cloud-based backup and DR

Corserva backup and archive services ensure that both local and cloud backups are performed daily, including “out of geography” replication to protect against natural disasters. Our data centers ensure your data is protected and available, even if your physical office location is down.

We provide enterprise-grade onsite and offsite backup solutions for systems, applications, and data, ensuring that we can back up any environment, however unique it may be. Utilizing our cloud-based backup service gives you access to cloud security and online storage experts, freeing up your time to focus on other business initiatives and eliminating the need to purchase costly hardware and software.

Corserva provides both recovery and business continuity solutions. Our on-site and cloud recovery programs ensure that your operations are “always up,” regardless of the challenge that you face. If you have large files and images that are being backed up, cloud recovery requires significant planning. The easy part is launching your backup files into recovery mode. The harder part is re-establishing your operating environment with the updated data from the recovery solution running in the data center. In many cases, this process will require a new physical device that is seeded with the new data at the data center, installed in your rehabilitated center, and then synced with the cloud files.

Corserva enables businesses of all sizes to build comprehensive business recovery and continuity solutions that are cost-effective while ensuring compliance with regulatory standards. We provide experienced insight and objective analysis of business continuity needs. We work closely with our clients’ own internal IT staff and management to develop solutions that ensure data is protected, in compliance with regulatory standards, and accessible when it is needed most.
