Interscale offers both a simple yet comprehensive backup plan as well as a complete Disaster Recovery solution depending on your business needs. So, what is the difference between them?
Our experience is that many clients are unaware of the reality of their situation and whether or not they have an effective backup or Disaster Recovery solution in place. We find that in most cases, what is believed to be a comprehensive backup or DR solution is nothing more than a simple backup to an external hard drive. Should the unfortunate event of a hardware failure or natural disaster occur, many business owners fail to realise the level of cost, complexity and timeframes involved when engaging IT assistance, to complete a recovery from this type of backup system.
If you’re like most mid-sized enterprises, you might have installed a tape backup system thinking that this investment was wise. The issues with tape backup include: the need for human interaction, the reduced frequency of backups, the lack of proof and quality of backups, and timeliness. Tape restore can take hours, days or even weeks when it comes to recovery time.
The challenge and confusion stems from the complexity involved with documenting, designing, managing and routinely testing a backup or Disaster Recovery solution, let alone having the confidence that if the worst were to occur, you could rely on these systems supporting your business operations whilst remediation plans unfold.
Hardware failure, theft or malware infection (such as a ransomware attack) can make recovering critical business data expensive or even impossible. In order to avoid this, you need a sophisticated, offsite backup solution.
