The Importance of Disaster Recovery Planning in Hurricane Season
FLORIDA, USA, October 2, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — A legal firm in Florida has turned to the U.S. arm of cloud computing company iomart (AIM: IOM) to protect its business critical data in the event of extreme weather events
The organization had its data stored on-site in a non-redundant, flood-zoned office in the Orlando area but wanted to create a reliable cloud backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DraaS) plan in advance of this year’s hurricane season.
30TB of data was backed up using an EMC Avamar M2400 and stored on an EMC DataDomain 2500 before being shipped to iomart’s data center in Virginia where it was replicated to a multi-tenant environment for true DR. iomart has a fully managed, high availability VMware environment running alongside the backup environment, which allows customers the option to carry out fast restores to iomart’s IaaS platform in the event of a DR scenario.
Marc Kelly, VP Sales, iomart Inc., explains, “Due to the urgency and the high volume and type of data, we took a hybrid approach for backup and DR with real-time backup. While we replicated their daily short term data from the last week over the Internet, everything else was backed up onsite and then uplifted, shipped and seeded successfully to our facility in Virginia before the storm hit.”
With data centers at six locations across the U.S., Backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service from iomart can give you peace-of-mind for your data.
