Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is an essential part of any organisation’s response planning. It sets out how the business will operate following an incident and how it expects to return to ‘business as usual’ in the quickest possible time afterwards.
A BCP need not be specific to terrorist incidents and apply to any major disruption such as a major fire, flooding or power fault.
The plan itself sets out the agreed arrangements for bringing events under control, the necessary resources for maintaining critical business functions and the staff required for co-ordinating actions. It also needs to be clearly presented, avoiding vague internal references and abbreviations, and structured in such a way that people can quickly find and understand what is expected from them.
A major part of this plan is protecting your IT infrastructure. At IntaCloud we use a high-availability, IaaS platform housed within VDCs spread across two or multiple geographically diverse sites. The IaaS platform is directly connected to a Layer 2 Core Network. The IntaCloud VDC solution supports the use of a number of technologies to facilitate high availability between the two or more sites. This means that your infrastructure could continue to work uninterrupted and without data loss, even if an entire infrastructure location became unavailable by replicating your on-premise servers physical or virtual to our secure private Cloud.
The Solution Employs:
- Built-in application level replication.
- Exponential-e Server Replication.
- Layer 2, stretched subnets, spanning between Data Centres.
- File level Backup and restore are available if required to mitigate against deleted and corrupted files.
IntaCloud’s VDCs are connected to the Core Network. which is able to provide a low latency (typically below 2ms), high bandwidth link between sites.
This provides the ideal environment for our customers to use any existing application level replication technologies built into their critical applications, between the two or more physical locations.
We use our Server Replication service for those servers or applications that cannot be protected by inbuilt application level replication, or for those that our customers wish to protect using our replication technology.
Protecting mission-critical applications is not only about copying data. Rather, it is about ensuring application recovery, protecting from logical errors and frequently testing failover to ensure an organisation can recover the applications, settings and files when needed.
