20 Sep Importance of BCDR
For a business to survive a data loss event, it will have to pay
attention and invest in the IT infrastructure needed to ensure not
just data survival but business continuity. This is where the BCDR
solution comes in. BCDR is designed to provide failover
environments and continuous data replication to protect data itself
and ensure a company’s ability to get back to business as quickly as
possible. It also addresses the need for secure offsite or cloud copies
for worst case scenarios.
Organizations must look at their overall data loss
tolerance — Recovery Point Objections (RPO) — and the
maximum amount of time applications can be down without causing
significant damage to the business — Recovery Time Objective (RTO)
— to prepare for a disaster. They must also have protections in place
for recovery from corruption or ransomware. This is accomplished
with a combination of an on-premise appliance and a secure
detached cloud backup.
Simply put, any so-called BCDR alternative is not competitive or
true BCDR, if it does not include both the on-premises appliance
and the additional layer of protection in the cloud. These
components work congruently to provide a company with safe
and secure data backups, fast and easy restoration of business
functionality and productivity, and a secure off-site backup in the
event of catastrophe. Missing either piece disqualifies a solution
from being anything more than just a backup.

solution or may be looking at other
ASK THESE QUESTIONS
Does the solution provide 100-percent protection against ransomware?

Is a copy of all your data in-house at all times for speedy data access, recovery, and
Is this alternative solution easily and affordably scalable as your data needs grow?
How long would it take to fully restore your data and business functions if you experienced
a catastrophic hardware failure or natural disaster?
