Veeam Backup and Disaster Recovery
The Purpose of Backup and Disaster Recovery
You have all heard of the spread of Ransomware, Malware and viruses targeting small and medium businesses. Veeam® Backup & Replication™ leverages server virtualization, modern storage and the cloud to provide Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™ and deliver recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of <15 minutes for ALL applications. Veeam provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of virtualized applications and data, unifying backup and replication — all in a single solution for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments.
It All Starts With Requirements
RPO: Recovery Point Objective
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) describes the interval of time that might pass during a disruption before the quantity of data lost during that period exceeds the Business Continuity Plan’s maximum allowable threshold or “tolerance.”
Example: If the last available good copy of data upon an outage is from 18 hours ago, and the RPO for this business is 20 hours then we are still within the parameters of the Business Continuity Plan’s RPO. In other words it the answers the question – “Up to what point in time could the Business Process’s recovery proceed tolerably given the volume of data lost during that interval?”
RTO: Recovery Time Objective
The Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is the duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in continuity. In other words, the RTO is the answer to the question: “How much time did it take to recover after notification of business process disruption?“
RPO designates the variable amount of data that will be lost or will have to be re-entered during network downtime. RTO designates the amount of “real time” that can pass before the disruption begins to seriously and unacceptably impede the flow of normal business operations.
There is always a gap between the actuals (RTA/RPA) and objectives introduced by various manual and automated steps to bring the business application up.
