According to statistics, 80% of companies do not have any disaster recovery plan or do not backup at all. Many realize data backup and protection importance; nevertheless they often pay attention to this issue residually. Our cloud service offers a new approach to solve this problem.

How it works

Within the framework of this service, you get the ability to back up your critical data (files, databases, OS configuration) into the computing cloud of IT-GRAD Company in order to provide their integrity and security. You receive distributions of special agents to back up the required applications data. Availability of agents allows to ensure the data integrity (consistency) in the backup. Transfer of the backup data is performed through the Internet channels either through dedicated communication channels in a protected (encrypted) way.

Backup service cost depends on size of the data you want to reserve and on parameters of their storage (number of copies).

Hybrid Backup Model

In case the customer has equipment which can be used to store backups it is recommended to use a hybrid backup scheme.

In this case, management server is still in the public cloud but the customer gets the opportunity to choose the backup data storage space depending on various parameters. For example, on the backup duration. Thus, you can host operational copies locally within the customer’s site and to send long-term copies to the external cloud. 

Hybrid model allows to reduce backup windows and recovery time due to higher local data rates.

Half Hourly Backup

In case the customer uses NetApp data storage system, it is possible to configure the data backup as frequently as necessary. Half hourly, for example. CommVault software, on the basis of which our backup service is implemented, allows you to configure integration with data storage systems snapshots. NetApp also allows to take these snapshots quickly, frequently and without significant performance degradation.

CommVault software, on the basis of which our backup service is implemented, allows you to configure integration with data storage systems snapshots.

Consistency of Data of Different Types

Within the service you will be able to back up data of the following types:

  • files,
  • OS configurations,,
  • databases (Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Oracle, DB2, PostgreSQL, and others.)
  • applications data (Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Lotus Notes / Domino, SAP, EMC Documentum, and others.)
  • virtual machines images (VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Xen, and others.).

Independently, you will be able to:

  • install client software on your servers and workstations,
  • determine the list of data to be backup,
  • define the schedule and frequency of backups,
  • indicate the storage depth (for which period)
  • recover data.

Advantages of the service consist of the cloud approach advantages and also of advantages which lie in functionality of the used software. We use Comm Vault Solution as backup software.

According to research in 2012 Comm Vault took the leading position in Gartner Magic Quadrant among corporate level data backup and recovery solutions. Please contact us if you want to get the full research version.

Functional Advantages of our Solution

  • availability of specialized backup agents for a large number of applications providing the backup data integrity (consistency);
  • support for backup data from physical and virtual servers with a single console;
  • support for more file types than other solutions in the industry;
  • deduplication at the data source side allows to reduce data backup time and the load on data channel;
  • the ability to encrypt the backup data;
  • the ability of integration with the functionality of data storage systems snapshots. This feature allows to reduce the load on server with the data to be backup.

Advantages of the cloud approach to backup

  • • minimum of lump-sum costs – you don’t need to purchase and implement a backup system (to develop a project, to purchase equipment and software, to train staff);
  • minimal start-up time – you can activate the service on the day of your request;
  • payment only for the actually consumed resources (you don’t need to load extra resources for the prospects of needs growth);
  • guaranteed high quality services in accordance with SLA;
  • release of employees’ time for other tasks.

In addition to the core functionality you can order:

  • the ability of data and infrastructure recovery to IT-GRAD’s public cloud;
  • the dedicated communication channel for data backup in large volumes (more than 1Tb). We will provide technical conditions to connect the channel to our infrastructure on the basis of your request;
  • integration with snapshot functionality of your data storage system DSS (from the compatibility list).

Disaster Recovery Plan

Disaster Recovery Plan will allow to protect your company’s business from IT infrastructure malfunctioning and possible information loss. Our cloud data backup service provides high availability and security of your data. It is 75% more efficient and profitable than traditional recovery plans.

Traditional recovery plan involves organizing the second, preferably geographically remote platform. In order to organize it you often have to deliver almost the same set of equipment as for the first platform. It is necessary to provide site infrastructure, to purchase software to backup, to set up and run everything. With that, the costs of creation and maintenance of the second platform can be comparable to the costs of the main platform. This means that providing business continuity can take up to 50% of the total IT budget.

Cloud backup service provides the ability to quickly increase or decrease volumes of consumption; the service does not require any initial capital costs, besides it is economically profitable due to economies of scale (costs of the data center infrastructure are shared between all the service customers).

Disaster Recovery Plan

Cold and hot backup

Cold backup. Only your data themselves are copied into the public cloud on a daily basis (or on a predetermined schedule). In case data recovery is needed, you can unload them to your platform via communication channels or in case of unavailability of the main platform you can rent the desired amount of resources right in the cloud. Recovery time (RTO) usually multiples of days.

Hot backup. All the data from all your servers are replicated into the public cloud continuously or on a schedule. With that, computing resources are reserved in the cloud in advance, which can be run, if necessary, in semiautomatic mode, nominally on mouse click. Recovery time (RTO) usually multiples of hours in this case.
