CloudRecovery Disaster Recovery as a Service RapidScale Managed Cloud Solutions for Business

Disaster Recovery In a Managed Cloud Environment

Disaster Recovery

CloudRecovery is designed to help businesses easily implement cloud storage infrastructures that support key data protection functionalities such as replication, backup and restore, data archiving, disaster recovery, data and application mobility, data availability and security, and elastic capacity.

Ensure Data Security

RapidScale’s data centers feature on-premises security guards, an exterior security system, biometric systems including palm scanners and security scanners, and continuous digital surveillance and recording. We meet and exceed standards including the majority of government security standards.

Protect Against Disasters

RapidScale’s disaster recovery and business continuity product, CloudRecovery with failover, equips customers with the tools they need to ensure their mission-critical applications are available to their users during any type of crisis — floods, fires, power loss, server failures, rogue employees, etc. — that can occur at the customer’s premises.

Achieve Low RTO and RPO

Replication to cloud virtual machines can be used to protect both cloud and on-premises production instances. For applications that require an aggressive Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO), as well as application awareness, replication is the data movement option of choice.

Ensure Availability

Our premier disaster recovery and business continuity product, CloudRecovery with failover, equips customers with the tools they need to ensure their mission-critical applications are available to their users during any type of crisis: floods, fires, power loss, server failures, rogue employees, etc. These include natural disasters that can impact entire communities, cities, states and even regions of the nation. Business server infrastructure can range from a single-server environment to businesses with dozens or hundreds of servers. CloudRecovery focuses on the key servers housing the applications that a business cannot survive without.

Tier 3 Data Centers

Our infrastructure resides in Tier 3 data centers, which provide the highest level of availability. These facilities have fault-tolerant site infrastructure with electrical power storage and distribution facilities with expected availability of 99.995%. All cooling equipment is independently dual-powered with multiple independent power distribution paths. They also feature dual redundant UPS battery systems with multiple diesel generators to power the facility for seven days without primary power from utilities. We maintain priority contracts for diesel refueling (second only to hospitals, first respondents, and government agencies). These are just a few advantages over a customer-based or lower-tier data center.

It’s Easy

Our control panel gives the administrator access to the CloudRecovery services from any device with an Internet connection, ensuring that if the time comes, the business will be back up and running as soon as possible. RapidScale also offers 24x7x365 Help Desk support for customers in geographically diverse centers. This provides another path to recovery if, by chance, the customer’s IT team is unable to initiate the failover.

RTO, RPO, and the Cost of Downtime

RTO: “Recovery Time Objective”: Duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster (or disruption) in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in business continuity.

RPO: “Recovery Point Objective”: Maximum tolerable period in which data might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident.

Here is an easy formula to see the cost of a data loss or critical failure to a business network. If the annual revenue is around $1 million per year and it is a 24×7, 7 days-a-week, 52 weeks-a-year business model, dividing $1 million dollars by the 8760 hours will give you the hourly revenue loss.

If your annual revenue is around $1 million per year and the business is an 8:00AM to 5:00PM, 5 days-a-week, 52 weeks-a-year business model, dividing $1 million dollars by the 2080 hours will provide the hourly revenues loss (see below).

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) provides businesses with cost-effective disaster recovery services offering critical storage-based replication and recovery within a managed environment in the cloud. Companies that are affected after natural disasters or server failure lose a lot of revenue. In addition to revenue loss, many reports state that companies that experience downtime are more likely to go out of business than companies that have a DR plan in place.

When initiated, CloudRecovery can bring a business back up and in production mode within the RapidScale cloud in a matter of minutes or hours, versus the traditional backup and recovery services that can take hours, days or even weeks.

Today’s business environment is heavily reliant on technology and business applications, much more so than at any point in the past. The inability to access key applications and data for a matter of days due to a crisis could put a company out of business. Our disaster recovery solution ensures that business applications and data will be safe and accessible, no matter what.

Disaster Recovery in the Cloud

Disaster recovery (DR) is the ability to handle site failures with minimal disruptions to a business. This is an essential capability for every organization, regardless of its size, sector or location. However, typically high costs and complexities associated with traditional DR keep businesses from implementing plans. Almost 60% of businesses don’t have one in place today. Availability and reliability are two of the most important aspects of any successful business venture, and any disruptions or outages can seriously wreak damage on an organization’s operations and reputation. In fact, many businesses don’t even recover following a disaster. Disaster recovery is necessary.
