Data Center FAQS

Learn more about data centers with Storcom’s comprehensive library of definitions and Frequently Asked Questions.

faq-cat-4

What is the Main Issue with Public Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery?

Learn More

To put it simply, effective DR/BU is complex: it is not just about restoring VMs. It’s about the applications and the “what, where, and how” users will use these applications.

faq-cat-4

What are the Main Issues with Basic “Cloud Backup” as-a-Service Solutions?

Learn More

The data is off-site but does not provide the necessary capabilities to recover applications and meet SLAs.

Traditional legacy backup software falls short in today’s IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) and virtualized environments.

faq-cat-1

What are the Challenges, Issues and Complexity to Backup/Data Recovery?

Learn More

Issues with traditional approach to backup and recovery:

  • Full backup windows extend beyond SLA requirements
  • Lengthy recovery windows can drastically impact business operations, customer experience, and revenue
  • Difficult to orchestrate or automate DR processes
  • Tests are run infrequently due to complexity and disruption concerns

How Do You Prevent Data Loss?

Learn More

Since ALL tape backups will fail at some point in time, organizations are quickly learning that tape is not always an adequate form of data backup. Tape drives can malfunction without showing warning signs, become corrupted due to accidental misformatting, mishandling, heat, or being hit by a virus, and this can make it impossible to recover your data. The best way to prevent tape backups from failing is to have a remote backup solution in place. Also known as “offsite backups” or “managed backups,” your data is secure and safe in a location that is not your office or data center.

It is more important than ever for companies to have a solid disaster recovery plan and data recovery strategy and an executable solution in place in order to prevent data loss.

What is Business Continuity (BC)?

Learn More

“Business continuity,” or “BC,” is the way that a business can maintain regular operations during an outage or systems malfunction. “Business continuity” should not be confused with “disaster recovery.”

What is DR/BU?

Learn More

“DR/BU” is short for “backup and disaster recovery.” Backup and disaster recovery is also often referred to as “BU/DR” or “DR/BC” (disaster recovery and business continuity).

“Disaster recovery” is the way in which data, servers, files, software applications, and operating systems are restored following a disastrous event or systems failure. It should not be confused with “business continuity,” although the two phrases are usually used in the same breath.

faq-cat-3

What Do I Do in the Event of a Ransomware Attack?

Learn More

Besides calling Storcom’s Ransomware Recovery team of experts, businesses need to follow their ransomware removal protocol after they have been impacted by ransomware. If your organization does not have a plan in place, then Storcom can help you create your own Ransomware Prevention and Recovery Roadmap™ prior to a ransomware attack. Ransomware prevention is key since data protection is high on the list of every IT executive and CEO’s business continuity strategy.
