A company’s data is one of its most important assets. Data continues to outlive the hardware, and most data protection implementations are complex, costly, and require a number of specialty products that need to be “bolted” into your company’s environment.
Whether your company’s focus is on compliance, business continuity or just productivity, right sizing the data protection scheme should be a priority. The most important/revenue generating applications, and the most difficult (i.e., databases and active directory) services to recover should be replicated. Other applications should be backed up and archived until your company can justify the additional cost of replication or the value of the application changes to justify the replication costs.
Replication vs. Backup as it Relates to Data Protection
For the past two decades, tape backups were the primary form of data protection, but today, there are several options available for your business. H. A. Services works with you to help safeguard your critical data and help guide your business in determining the right level of protection for your data needs.
Replication—the scheduled synchronization of data and applications to ensure consistency and provide quick failover of production
