Why backup with Taurus?
The growing demand for consistent and reliable access to corporate data and applications requires a robust infrastructure. In the event of a failure, a clear, appropriate backup & disaster recovery strategy needs to be in place to ensure downtime and disruption is kept to a minimum.
Over the years, organisations have become increasingly reliant on access to applications and data to provide services to clients and staff. Any downtime from system failure or disaster can result in unwanted costs for staff unable to work, lost business and missed deadlines. In addition to this, many organisations have an obligatory requirement to maintain an archive of historical data.
In order to establish the backup and disaster recovery requirements of an organisation, first you must consider the impact and cost of any extended downtime. This will create a clear understanding of the objectives for the strategy required.
Two metrics can be measured to help scope an appropriate Backup & disaster recovery solution:
Recovery Time Objective (RTO) = this is the length of time you can withstand downtime of this particular system in hours
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) = this is the length of time you have to go back in the event of a recovery / the required frequency of the backups
These objectives can vary considerably depending on the nature of the downtime.
There are a number of backup options available including hosted backups, manual data rotation and fully managed, multi-tier backup services.
