Is tape dead? Is it really dead? For as long as we have been in business (since 2003) the headline "Tape is dead" has been a mainstay in the storage press and in the messaging of backup and archiving vendors.
We wish disaster recovery was as easy as buying technology.
But, through hard-won experience, we know it's not. Protecting your organisation – not just any old place, your organisation – takes careful planning and ongoing management.
Nevertheless, it's good to know what's going on under the hood.
How does Disaster Recovery as a Service work?
Databarracks' DRaaS replicates at the hypervisor level, which is more scalable, flexible and cost effective than traditional physical replication.
- Fast to recover – RTOs of minutes and RPOs of seconds
- Agentless – no strain on your environment, more secure and easily scalable
- Continuous – replication has no impact on application performance
- Easy to integrate – everything is virtual, so there are never any software, hardware or storage capability issues or upgrade requirements
Connectivity and failover
Your connectivity to Databarracks' Secure Infrastructure platform is as important as the replication technology sitting above it, and you can choose the method that fits your needs best.
Connect to our ultra-secure data centres from two London-based points-of-presence. Use your current network provider to connect to Telehouse North or Goswell Road, and we'll provide 100MB/s backhaul to our data centres.
Data centre internet breakout
Use our data centre's multi GB/s breakout service to connect directly to your site, over the internet. Connectivity and IP transit are provided by NTL, BT, Global Crossing, Neos, AboveNet, Cogent and Level 3.
