It's all about preparation.
Building a solidly tiered Disaster Recovery plan is a big challenge in itself.
But then testing it is a nightmare for business continuity – it can be painfully disruptive and prohibitive.
An ideal Disaster Recovery solution should be simple and effective (not to mention, with lightning fast RTOs and RPOs).
Macquarie Cloud Services has the answer.
Backup and Disaster Recovery eGuide
Crisis? No drama
No two business are the same, or have the same goals, so no two Disaster Avoidance, Backup and Disaster Recovery designs should be the same. This guide will take your through key selection criteria for your Backup-as-a-Service and Disaster Recovery providers, including a full outline to assist in preparing your Disaster Recovery plan.
Efficient disaster recovery.
Effortlessly replicate your virtual machines at the hypervisor layer, powered by Zerto. Ensure your critical applications are always available. With our virtualised Disaster Recovery solution, you no longer need to maintain and refresh expensive secondary site infrastructure, or manage a complicated bespoke network failover process.
In the event of an issue within your primary site, your Macquarie hosted DR will be ready for activation – single click migration of workloads allow you to easily achieve your RTOs with minimal effort. Failover compute and network resources seamlessly at the touch of a button.
Fast & Flexible
Choose to leave your existing production workloads untouched, and consume Macquarie Cloud Services as a DR target only. Alternatively, invoke DR from within your Macquarie Cloud environment to ensure your virtual workloads stay resilient and available. Choose from multiple geographically diverse sites (Datacentres we run ourselves!) to target for your DR solution.
Test your DR plan (or as part of your larger BCP Testing) without affecting business operations or production applications. Maintain confidence in your business continuity through weekly, monthly or yearly testing. Unlike traditional solutions, our DR solution does not require service disruption to test and validate. 9am Monday Morning is now prime time for your business continuity testing.
Protected by Intellicentre
We continuously replicate your critical applications; from your primary site to our cloud. Web, Application, Databases, they’re all potential candidates. Powered by Zerto, we integrate into the hypervisor stack, operating over the network and constantly maintaining a mirror copy of your primary workloads.
Quick Fail Recovery
In the event of failure (both major failures and minor hiccups – we can help recover from both), the Macquarie mirror is ready to be activated and to start servicing your user workloads. Our single click capability allows you to failover with ease; no more complicated network and compute continuity procedures.
As disaster resolves, failback your workloads to the original site. Retain all changes made during the DR period, ensuring no data is lost. Users may never be aware a disaster has even happened!
