Cutting downtime, staff overhead with outsourced DR

Rohan Pearce | April 5, 2013
When it comes to disaster recovery -- assuming they don't ignore DR altogether -- Australian businesses have a tendency to overestimate just how quickly they could retrieve their data if an incident occurs.

The solution means that the business doesn't need to find backup windows, and the staff to monitor the backup process. The appliance itself can provide a week or two of data, acting effectively as a local cache -- so a single file or folder can be made visible quickly on the local network. Two or three months' worth of data is stored offsite.

If a disk fails in the Bakers Delight data centre, a version can be mounted locally from the appliance. In the case of a fully fledged disaster, Global Storage staff can run a DR process based on the offsite data.
