Disco Stu has moved from Springfield to the world of backup and DR.
Earlier this week, eVault announced 4-hour recovery times for their mid-size business customers. This is one of those mind boggling announcements that gets a lot of us in the business saying, “Really?”
Because the thing is, in 2012, a 4-hour recovery time is terrible. They never explain if the 4-hour guarantee applies to any single system or an entire data center. In either case, eVault’s claim is just plain archaic.
For the sake of comparison, nScaled offers customers a 15-minute RTO for any single system, and a 2-hour RTO for an entire data center.
And, it turns out, the 4-hour SLA is available for a very limited selection of OSs and applications. I don’t think a single one of our customers has an IT environment simplistic enough to qualify for their 4-hour guarantee, and would be forced to choose the 24- and 48-hour options that eVault offers.
As Disco Stu once said,
“Did you know that disco record sales were up 400% for the year ending 1976? If these trends continues… AAY!”
