Is your Disaster Recovery strategy ready for the unpredictable?

How much can your business tolerate if you need to restore your system: half a day, a few hours? Is your DR strategy up to speed with handling these typical backup and disaster recovery challenges?

Unplanned downtime tarnishing your organisation’s reputation, finances, and productivity

Rising costs of maintaining secondary sites and infrastructure

Managing complex environments while meeting RPO and RTO standards

Ensuring compliance with regulatory demands for data retention and protection in your industry

Scaling protection beyond mission-critical apps and data

With sophisticated cyber threats, unexpected power outages, human errors, and natural disasters, you must protect your business data to avoid being caught off guard when disruptive or catastrophic events occur, potentially interrupting your business continuity.

Protect your critical data and apps with Microsoft Azure

Backup and restore your most important information when the unexpected happens while keeping your storage costs low. As ransomware attacks increase, built-in protection from Azure keeps your data safe. Organisations leverage Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery for their core backup and recovery operations because of these benefits: (IDC 2022 study)

Reduced planned and unplanned downtime, increasing end-user productivity and lowering business risk

Optimised overall performance, speed, and reliability of backup and data recovery (BDR) operations

The provision of a more cost-effective structure for backup and data recovery hardware and software and staff operations

Improved productivity of IT infrastructure, backup and data recovery, and application development teams

Azure Backup

Azure Backup is Microsoft's scalable, highly available, secure, and cost-effective cloud-based backup solution. It offers a simple solution for backing up your on-premises resources, client, and VMs to the cloud. With Azure Backup, you can:

  • Protect your data with Azure no matter where it resides: in the cloud or on-premises.
  • Scale protection to just a few files and folders or multiple VMs in a few clicks.
  • Eliminate the need to provision storage for your backup solution.
  • View your backups from Azure and on-premises in one centralised location.
  • Export Power BI reports to understand information about your backups.
  • Ensure you are meeting your industry’s unique compliance requirements.
  • Receive instant notifications of suspicious backup activities, so you can take action.

Azure Site Recovery

Azure Site Recovery is a cloud solution that can natively protect on-premises workloads and allow Azure-to-Azure cloud recovery. It enables you to replicate on-premises VMs to Azure from a primary site to a secondary location for getting back online quickly in the event of outages. With Azure Site Recovery, you can:

  • Keep recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) within organisational limits.
  • Set up Azure VMs disaster recovery from a primary region to a secondary region.
  • Replicate on-premises VMs and physical servers to Azure or a secondary on-premises data centre.
  • Replicate any workload running on supported Azure VMs, on-premises Hyper-V and VMware VMs, and Windows/Linux physical servers.
  • Set up and manage replication, failover, and failback from a single location in the Azure portal.
  • Run disaster recovery drills without affecting ongoing replication.
  • Orchestrate data replication without intercepting application data.
