Here are common issues experienced in a DR situation – which are resolved by Professional Link and Shadow Protect 4.
Tape backups are notoriously troublesome – with respected analysts reporting over 50% of them being corrupt and unusable. How does a business survive without its data?
In either case of tape or windows disk image restores, you are reliant on restoring to similar hardware. Unless you have similar hardware available, which has not been affected by the primary cause, such as malfunction, theft, flood or fire, you will have to order new equipment. How long will this take to source and what do you do in the mean time?
Data restores rely on a lengthy process. At the very best this will take hours of time - assuming technical resources are available and no technical issues are presented though out the restore process and all software and licence keys are to hand. Otherwise, we’re talking days, not hours.
You can only restore data to the point in time of when it when it was last fully backed up. When was that and what about all the work which has been created since then? By everyone!
Your DR Strategy should be determined by the amount of time you can afford to be without access to your systems and data – if at all...
