Backup And Disaster Recovery:

Providing The Tools To Maximize Uptime And Ensure Continuity Across Your IT Ecosystem.

You wouldn’t travel to space without a backup plan. The same is true when taking your IT to the cloud.

Backup and disaster recovery is all about ensuring the continuity of your systems, even in worst case scenarios. No matter how resilient your IT infrastructure, disasters can happen. But with the right precautions in place, they do not need to spell downtime or data loss for your business.

At Iron Orbit, we have a robust set of backup and disaster recovery procedures to ensure uptime and data integrity. We employ geographically redundant servers to ensure uptime even in the event of a disaster at one location, and we continually back up all files to ensure quick and easy data recovery.

Taking your desktops, servers and applications to the cloud is the best way to ensure system continuity. At Iron Orbit, we take the innate advantages of the cloud to the next level, ensuring continuity at a galactic scale.

  • Fully managed and maintained backups
  • Daily offsite backups
  • Weekly server snapshots
  • Redundant SAN storage arrays
  • Load-balanced switching
  • RPO as low as 2 hours
  • RTO as low as 1 hour
  • Geographically separated data facilities

Iron Orbit’s 3 Step Process For Unbeatable Continuity

Risk Analysis & Review

The process begins with a comprehensive risk analysis that aims to identify all potential continuity risk factors. The analysis takes into account the organizational, managerial and technical environments in which the continuity plan will be implemented.

Business Impact Analysis

Next, we identify the types of disasters most likely to occur and their potential impacts on your company’s ability to perform critical business processes.

Strategy & Implementation

Finally, we compile a list of protective measures to implement in anticipation of possible business interruptions. The final plan is based around the “4 Rs” of continuity: response (acknowledging the interruption); resumption (getting systems up and running); recovery (retrieving any lost data); and restoration (getting systems back to the condition they were in before the incident).

The Next Level In Business Continuity

At Iron Orbit, we use advanced networking and storage technologies to ensure the resilience of your hosted services. Our continuity measures ensure that you are always able to access your systems and data, even in the event of a major interruption.

The following are just some of the resources and processes that help us ensure your business’ continuity 365 days a year:

  • Storage Area Network (SAN) arrays
  • Load-balanced switching
  • Geographically separated data facilities
  • Dedicated disaster recovery teams
  • Daily offsite backups and weekly server snapshots

Business Continuity Management

Iron Orbit Business Continuity Objectives

In the unlikely case of a major system failure, Iron Orbit is proud to deliver an RPO as low as 4 hours and an RTO as low as 12 hours by using proven, enterprise-level technologies.

Disaster Recovery Glossary

Business Continuity (BC):
Includes planning to ensure the continuity of business critical functions in the event of a major unplanned service failure or disaster, including key aspects such as personnel, facilities, crisis communication, project management and change control. A BC strategy includes a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) for IT related infrastructure recovery.

Mission-Critical:
Systems or applications that are essential to the functioning of your organization and its processes.

Recovery Point Objective (RPO):
The age of files that must be recovered for normal operations to resume if a system goes down as a result of a failure.

Recovery Time Objective (RTO):
The maximum tolerable length of time that a computer, system, network or application can be down after a failure or disaster occurs.

Disaster Recovery (DR):
Part of a larger Business Continuity plan that includes processes and solutions to restore business critical applications, data, hardware, communications (such as networking) and other parts of their IT infrastructure. DR can also include measures to protect against other unplanned events such as the failure of an individual server or shorter service interruptions.

High Availability (HA):
A system or component that is continuously operational for a desirably long length of time.

Redundancy:
Systematically using multiple sources, devices or connections to eliminate single points of failure that could completely stop the flow of information.

Hotsite:
A DR facility fully equipped with the equipment, network connections and environmental conditions necessary for restoring your data and getting your systems up and running instantly (unlike coldsites and warmsites, which are not ready to go in an instant).
