DynaVault: Our hyper-secure backup technology.
BDR: Backup and Disaster Recovery. The main reason for performing routine backups is to recover from disasters. Small disasters, like the corruption of a few files, or major disaster, such as the encryption of your entire network and data caused by ransomware. Yes, it does happen.
When considering protecting your data you will have to consider the following:
The more you invest in securing your data, the more you can be protected to the point where you lose no data at all and your system isn’t down for more than a few seconds or minutes.
First, a couple of definitions:
RPO: Recovery Point Objective– the maximum targeted period in which data might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident. For example, you may determine that, based on cost, you can afford to lose days worth of data. That would make your RPO 24 hours. This might apply to a business that, if it lost data from its network, would still be able to identify this data from other sources and re-upload it. On the other hand, a hospital’s medical records probably need to be 100% up-to-date.
RTO: Recovery Time Objective– How long can you afford to be without the compromised data? A few seconds, a few minutes, several hours, a day? If you’re an online store, for instance, any amount of downtime of its product database could be extremely costly.
RTO / RPO: these are business requirements that determine the types and cost of backup solutions. (If you want to learn more, we suggest our recent article: Understanding and Managing RTO / RPO.) This article will also take you on a deeper dive as to the type of back-ups available and the considerations of each.
