RECOVERING YOUR DATA FROM DISASTERS
When your business depends on your applications, you need to have tools in place that allow you to recover data quickly in times that disrupt your IT systems. Many companies want to maintain a zero down time or ensure that the maximum tolerable period in which their data might be lost from an IT service is zero (i.e their recovery point objective – RPO=0)
In order to recover your data from a disaster, a series of replication software or disaster recovery solutions are available to choose from. An active Data Guard is a replication software that can help you to create and maintain one or more standby databases to protect your data from failures, disasters, errors and data corruptions. This supports zero data loss and near zero data loss. You can as well use zero data loss recovery appliance (ZDLRA). With ZDLRA, you can eliminate data loss and reduce data protection cost for all your databases. The active GoldenGate can also be used to produce a synchronized logical copy of your production database. A tape backup can be attached to DR solution in case human errors and corrupted data are recorded to your RAID disk or storage replication for data protection.
Backup disaster recovery solutions resolve issues relating to backing up heterogenous or homogenous applications, form of connectivity or infrastructure transport that will be used to transport your data to recovery site, specific hardware and software configuration and a lot more.
The Cloud – save more and worry less
Are you worried about upfront infrastructure cost that comes from power and cooling requirements? Be calm. Cloud computing solutions which come in different models could be the best way out for your company.
Depending on your pocket size, there are a range of deployment models you can go for. Private cloud enables you to own and manage your data securely. Meaning that, you operate as a single enterprise. Your workloads are moved easily across the cloud services. Through public cloud, you can as well choose to share a range of services with many companies while your data is still kept separate and secured. You can also go for an option of making the public cloud to become an extension of your private cloud, that is hybrid cloud model.
A network of remote servers hosted on the internet can help you store, manage and process your data rather than a local server.
