Effortless cloud-based Cyber Disaster Recovery for Acronis
Disaster recovery solutions allow companies to quickly resume business-critical workloads after cyber-attacks, natural disasters or server failures. The disaster recovery process normally involves a separate physical or cloud site to restore data. Every disaster recovery solution aims to help businesses operate as usual. Since business continuity depends on high availability, disaster recovery strategies depend on RTOs and RPOs.
For reliable disaster recovery, you need to look beyond simply copying all your databases and files. Your entire infrastructure—servers, PCs, NAS, SAN—contains vital production data. You need to capture application settings, operating system configurations, bookmarks, and registry data for a full recovery. Don’t forget to back up your hypervisors and end-points—your CEO’s laptop may have more important data than most of your servers!
To be able to failover your critical workloads, you should back up your data to Acronis Cloud Storage (or, cold storage for backups). As the disaster occurs, your workload will be failed-over to the off-site server running in the Acronis Cyber Disaster Recovery Storage (or, hot storage in the Acronis Cloud).
The success of your disaster recovery plan depends on preparedness of people and processes as much as the backup tools used. Ideally, you should test your disaster recovery procedures every 3 months (but no less than once a year). Do not forget to amend and extend your disaster recovery plan during and after these exercises.
To start using Acronis Disaster Recovery Add-on, you will need to have Acronis subscription license to access the management console in the Acronis cloud. This new cloud installation will allow you to protect new systems so you will need to configure settings accordingly (i.e. the system will not include your previous on-premises backup configurations.)
