Unfortunately, this scenario plays out every day. The table below shows the main differences between data-only or traditional backup and a Business Continuity solution.
|Traditional Data Backup||Managed Intelligent IT Business Continuity|
|Recovery can take days to weeks.||Downtime after a disaster is reduced to hours and minutes.|
|High risk for human error due to manual administration.||Highly automated backup process PLUS monitoring, maintenance, and support requires minimal end-user interaction and resources.|
|Difficult to test backup.||Automated screenshots are taken and reported to ensure that backup was successful and can be booted at anytime.|
|Time-consuming and expensive to make copies of backups or to store them in multiple locations.||Each backup is saved in multiple locations: to the local appliance and bi-coastal data centers.|
|Backup speeds are slower.||Quick, efficient transferring of files to offsite data centers, even with low bandwidth or busy network environments. Critical data can be prioritized to be transferred offsite first.|
|Physical to virtual conversions can be time-consuming and have a high failure rate.||Incremental backups can be instantly virtualized, rather than the entire backup chain.|
|No redundant backups in multiple locations, leaving high risk for original backup systems to be destroyed.||Eliminates downtime in the event of a disaster by allowing your business to run from copies of your virtualized servers onsite or offsite in hardened, SSAE-16 certified data centers.|
|Limited options for encrypting data, may not pass industry regulations (i.e., HIPAA, SOX).||AES 256 and SSL key-based encryption ensures data is safe and meets industry regulations.|
