Data Centre specialists, Node4 believe that a disaster recovery plan should not just be for the large organisations; their new complete solution puts protection and recovery within reach for any size of business.
‘Disasters’ in the business are becoming increasingly common with the growing number of security breaches, software issues and hardware failures, yet less than 50% of organisations in the UK have an active business continuity plan. Each and every company is becoming more and more reliant on IT in the everyday running of their business, so a simple plan for recovery after an unforeseen event is crucial for everyone.
The N4DRS uses Platespin ForgeTM technology protecting 10 or 25 servers, either physical or virtual, across several sites, with the ability for multiple applications to be deployed for larger implementations. The business servers are backed up onto the appliance regularly so that in the event of a server outage or disaster the business will continue to run as normal on the appliance until the normal environment is restored.
Any DR Solution is most effective when it is hosted at a separate location to your main business servers. N4DRS can be centralised in Node4’s state-of-the-art Data Centre, fully managed and monitored by their on-hand, fully qualified Technical Support team, or if you already host your business servers with Node4, they will be able to find the best solution for the individual business. High speed connections to link your business site and the appliance can be provided by Node4 in 10Mb, 100Mb or 1Gb sizes, which also can be utilised for internet access.
