Business Continuity Solutions

We are living in a “24/7 always-on” world. The access to data has become essential to businesses. Business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) planning is a vital part of an organization’s ability to remain operational in the event of a business interruption.

A business continuity plan is built on the 3R fundamental objectives:

  • RECOVERY LEVEL OBJECTIVE (RLO): Granularity level of the recovered data.
  • RECOVERY TIME OBJECTIVE (RTO): Metric for the amount of time it takes to recover from a data loss event, and how long it takes to return to service.
  • RECOVERY POINT OBJECTIVE (RPO): Metric for the amount of data at risk of being lost during a recovery.

A business continuity plan is built on the 3R fundamental objectives:

  • RECOVERY TIME OBJECTIVE (RTO): Metric for the amount of time it takes to recover from a data loss event, and how long it takes to return to service.
  • RECOVERY POINT OBJECTIVE (RPO): Metric for the amount of data at risk of being lost during a recovery.

All objectives should be set for each business application based on

  • The expected loss for the business with the objective.
  • The cost of achieving the objective.
  • The Recovery Level Objective (RLO) is defined according to the priority of the business application – it defines the granularity with which the recovered data must be enabled – i.e., whether it is necessary to recover a whole database, a web application, a site collection, a site, a list or library, or just an item.
  • Based on the RLO, acceptable values are defined for both Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

Recovery flow from disaster, tentative recovery to complete recovery

F TWO TECHNOLOGY offers a comprehensive business continuity solution for the most important business processes so that our customers can ensure business continuity by enabling them to:

  • Automating their Backups: Fully automated backups eliminate labor-intensive tasks and avoid backup failures via a single and adaptable infrastructure and interface.
  • Embrace Flash Storage: BCP need to embrace Flash Storage for speed & reliability. Using Flash Storage solutions will meet the recovery response required by demanding applications.
  • Eliminate Redundant Data: Modern DR Strategies must be global in nature, treating the information of the entire organization as one pool of information and eradicating redundant data at the source instead of the target.
  • Implement Snapshots: Snapshots make it possible to provide near instantaneous recovery of key applications and systems. This provides the flexibility to implement different levels of recovery within the enterprise so the highest priority applications can achieve greater protection.
  • Adopt Software Defined Storage (SDS): SDS decouples the software and applications from the underlying storage infrastructure establishing a flexible, agile & Scalable DR platform that spans global operations.
  • Use Analytics to Gain Insights: Comprehensive reporting and analytics provide organizations with the chance to gain insight into utilization, success rates and data profiles in real-time while achieving operational excellence.
  • Achieve Self-Service: Empower users via self-service capabilities to resolve their own issues, recover their own lost files and perform basic troubleshooting actions and still retain control and maintain security.
  • Implement a Hybrid Architecture: A modern approach to DR combines on-premises and cloud elements each optimized to the price, performance and data recovery needs of the enterprise with greater flexibility and far more resilience in the event of a major incident.
