Disaster Recovery is the concept of continuing business operations after a disaster. This involves resuming access to applications, hardware, data, servers, networking equipment, power and connectivity.
A Disaster Recovery plan consists of processes and procedures that are laid out specifically to be able to resume business as usual in the shortest possible time.
A disaster is an event that is unforeseen and could put your business at risk. This could be a natural disaster such as fire, flooding, or a cyber attack which may leave your infrastructure standing, but completely disrupt your business operations.
Prepare your business for the unexpected with Pappaya Cloud’s Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). We go beyond simple backups to safeguard businesses in the event of a disaster and meet individual compliance needs.
We help businesses to continue to operate by replicating and failing over to a secondary certified and compliant DR site. Website and applications can be replicated from virtual or physical environments to Pappaya Cloud’s DR data centres in multiple global locations.
With Pappaya Cloud’s DRaaS, customers do not need to invest in or maintain their own off-site DR environment. We meet strict SLAs for disaster recovery with clearly defined recovery time and recovery point objectives.
When a disaster strikes, Pappaya Cloud is able to move traffic to systems running in another data centre until you can achieve a safe failback. There are 2 concepts to consider:
Recovery Point Objective (RPO)
The RPO is the point in the server’s timeline that you can return to after a disaster. For instance, if you only have daily backups, your max RPO should be 24 hours. With Pappaya Cloud DR, because we run continuous replication, data loss should be kept to an absolute minimum.
Recovery Time Objective (RTO)
The RTO is the amount of time that it takes to recover from a situation such as a full data centre disaster.
