The Highly Available Data Protection and Disaster Recovery Solutions

The Highly Available Data Protection and Disaster Recovery Solutions

Enterprise Accident

Hard Drive Failure

Several hard disks failed at the same time, causing data corruption.


Data Deletion

Human actions delete critical data.


File System Crash

An unexpected crash occurred in the system.


Virus Attack

Hackers and ransomware are indiscriminate attacks.


Unexpected Power Outage

There is no warning of power failure. The UPS system has failed.


Natural Disaster

Encounter various natural disasters that cause downtime.

Data Protection Risk

A traditional local backup faces the challenge of recovering from data corruption caused by bad data deletion, hard disk failure, virus attack, and file system corruption. It also requires a long recovery time and greatly affects the normal operation of the enterprise. Suppose a company with multiple branches or data centers in different locations. In the event of a major accident or natural disaster, recovery may take longer than expected. This may also involve rebuilding a new data center.

Data Protection Solution

Enterprise Local Backup

When using a data volume for temporary data backup, setting up quick snapshots for local backups will minimize data recovery time. The well-configured local backup solution can resolve hard drive failures, virus attacks, and file system crashes in a short time and brings the service back online immediately.


Enterprise Remote Replication

The remote site backup solution is ideal for data volumes that contain essential data such as contract records, and purchase orders. These data volumes are stored in online database storage which does not accept any downtime. Installing remote replication can bypass unknown interruptions and data loss due to disasters. Data security can also improve by using remote backup data volumes as a temporary service or as a direct replacement.
