Many businesses — both large and small — use multi-tier applications. A typical multitier application consists of a presentation tier, a database tier, and an application tier. Depending upon the service, multi-tier applications can have many more tiers and services. Enterprise-class applications often run many user roles on one server and subsequently scale up to multiple tiers so the application can support an increasing number of users across the organization.
Because of the scalable nature of a typical multi-tier application, these services are critical to business continuity. However, due to their inherent complexity, it can be difficult to develop a disaster recovery (DR) strategy for these applications. Using the Acronis approach, your organization can implement an easy-to-use DR solution that can be routinely tested and validated to ensure you are protecting these critical applications.
Acronis has years of experience working with organizations of all sizes to implement disaster recovery solutions to protect a wide variety of multi-tier applications. In this whitepaper we share the best practices that Acronis has developed and discusses how Acronis Disaster Recovery Service can protect complex multi-tier applications in the event of a disaster.
