The Data Backup and Protection Challenge
In todays information age, where data growth and its importance to the organisation keep climbing, the cost of managing data, keeping it available and recovering it effectively continues to rise at a rapid rate.
The need to keep mission-critical business functions highly available has led to a heavy reliance on an organisations data assets. As a result, interrupted access to corporate data files, or data losses, can financially or functionally compromise an organisation and, in some cases, leave it unable to recover.
The highest risk to an organisation is the huge impact of downtime which results in lost revenue, irreparable customer and investor confidence, lost productivity and possible legal liability. As a result, CIOs and CEOs need to understand the importance of data backup and the risks of data loss.
Older data protection strategies, including legacy based tape backup systems, simply dont cater for the level of protection now required by an organisation to adequately safeguard against data loss. As a result, todays Information Managers, Business owners and Senior Executives need to find more affordable, more reliable ways to protect their organisation and ultimately themself.
DataReady™ Online Backup Cloud Service
Global Storage has vast experience and expertise in understanding the challenges of data protection. As specialists in Backup and Disaster Recovery, we understand the limitations and complexities of protecting data and the considerations required to get it right.
Our DataReady Managed Backup Service is a fully managed, online backup service that eliminates the heavy reliance on tape and tape systems. DataReady provides customers with a minimum of 3 months online data retention and allows customers to quickly and easily restore data online via our Global View user web portal.
DataReady leverages from our expertise in storage protection, remote data replication technologies and information recovery best practices to offer customers a better choice when it comes to building a suitable data protection strategy to meet todays demanding requirements.
DataReady allows customers to benefit from highly reliable remote backups more cost effectively than internal tape based systems. Advances in backup technology such as direct-to-disk and data de-duplication allow full server backups, that normally take hours to finish, to be completed in minutes. Data is automatically transferred offsite every night to our secure data storage facilities eliminating messy tape rotations and the possible human errors that are the cause of most data losses.
Customers can recover data online via the Global View user web portal. Global View enables customers to login to view their backups and restore all data sets from a single file or email to an entire server image. For customers wanting to leverage faster restores, a client-side restore appliance can be implemented to cache the most up to date backup data sets locally.
As a fully managed service, customers no longer need to allocate their own internal resources to software maintenance, hardware upgrades, tape rotations and costly reliability and support issues. DataReady provides enhanced SLA levels to customers over traditional backup strategies.
