Disaster recovery in more detail

Disaster recovery enables a business to continue running or quickly restore mission critical systems following a disaster.

A disaster can result from a range of causes - from cyberattack, to hardware failure, or natural disaster, such as fire or flood.

When creating a disaster recovery plan, two major objectives must be defined

Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

The time measured from the moment of the disaster to production operations being back up online.

If a business has an RTO of four hours, the downtime cannot be longer than four hours.

Recovery Point Objective (RPO)

The amount of data the business can allow itself to lose, defined as the length of time between the most recent disaster recovery activity (such as backup) and the moment the critical incident occurs.

As an example, it’s the age of the files of data in storage required to restart normal operations following a system or network failure.

If the RPO is defined as three hours, then the business has sanctioned that up to three hours’ data can be lost - and therefore, data backup must be carried out every three hours.

Looking at the options for backup and recovery

There’s no question about whether your business needs a backup and recovery solution. It does. The only real question is, which solution is right for your business.

Consider the following factors when deciding on a solution:

Storage

How much capacity do you need? Are you backing up one server and a few laptops, or do you have multiple servers in multiple locations, as well as desktop systems and laptops in the field?

Scalability

Whatever size your business, it’s likely your data will continue to grow. You, therefore, need a service that offers scalability and agility, so your backup can grow as your needs grow.

Uptime

The reason for backup and recovery is to ensure your data is available whenever you need it. This is where your RPOs and RTOs come in.

Frequency

Your RPOs will define the frequency backups are taken.

Security

Make sure data is encrypted not only when stored but also while in transit to and from the server. A cybercriminal may be able to see data in transit that is not encrypted.

Compliance

Privacy of customer and employee data is important. A backup solution should comply with regulations such as GDPR. It should also be able to comply with specific industry regulations.

Support

With any backup solution, it is vital that your vendor offers support in the event of a problem - such as XcellHost’s 24*7 support.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Everything! For reliable disaster recovery, you need to look beyond simply copying all your databases and files. Your entire infrastructure—servers, PCs, NAS, SAN—contains vital production data. You need to capture application settings, operating system configurations, bookmarks, and registry data for a full recovery. Don’t forget to back up your hypervisors and end-points—your CEO’s laptop may have more important data than most of your servers!

Acronis’ patented disk imaging technology takes care of everything automatically. Our backups capture everything on your disks (except for extraneous items like free space and paging files).

The choice of storage depends on a multitude of factors: production cycles, compliance, corporate policies, and more. As disaster recovery experts, we strongly recommend following the 3-2-1 rule: maintain 3 copies of your data stored on at least 2 types of storage media with at least 1 copy stored offsite.

For example, back up all your Windows servers (location 1) to a central, disk-based NAS (location 2) and then send additional copies offsite to the cloud.

All Acronis backup products support the 3-2-1 rule. In addition to being able to create and send multiple copies to multiple storage destinations, our products include seamless integration with the ultra-secure Acronis cloud. This allows you to send/maintain full system backups offsite without any extra steps!

Although frequent backup ensures that you lose less data, this practice does require more storage. Infrequent backup saves on storage, but you will lose any data created between the last backup and the moment disaster strikes.

This period of uncertainty is called RPO (Recovery Point Objective). You need to weigh your options and find a balance between lower costs vs. shorter RPO. Normal business practice RPO for small to medium-sized businesses is 24 hours (daily backup). Business-critical applications that change more often are usually backed up every few hours.

Acronis Backup products include some smart backup features to help negotiate this balance. We offer incremental backup that captures only what has changed since your last backup, reducing storage requirements. We also provide built-in deduplication and compression tools to maximize your storage/network usage without compromising your disaster recovery needs.

Absolutely! The success of your disaster recovery plan depends on the preparedness of people and processes as much as the backup tools used. Ideally, you should test your disaster recovery procedures every 3 months (but no less than once a year). Do not forget to amend and extend your disaster recovery plan during and after these exercises.

Acronis can help you master these processes. In addition to being exceptionally easy to use, many of our products include easy step-by-step disaster recovery instructions that are automatically emailed to employees after every backup.

Disaster recovery processes take time—from the moment disaster strikes to a full recovery of operations. This period is called RTO (Recovery Time Objective). Normal business practice for a single server ranges from 2 to 24 hours. A larger data center can require 24-72 hours. Restoring a whole company to regular operations could take even longer.

Acronis products can help you save significant time. Because our patented disk imaging captures your entire setup, you won’t need to reinstall operating systems, reconfigure applications, or even restore data separately. We will do all of this for you using one backup. We also offer some great disaster recovery services that can move large amounts of backup data from the Acronis cloud to your doorstep without clogging up your network.

No, you don’t! When disaster strikes, you may not be able to locate/afford replacement hardware that is exactly the same as your current setup.

All Acronis Backup products include the Universal Restore feature. This advanced recovery technology allows you to restore an entire system to hardware of a completely different make/model—without the usual complexities. You can even restore a physical server to a virtual machine!
