Keeping your business operating whatever the situation

Data facilitates your core business. Unplanned events like natural disasters, technology failures, malicious activity, or user errors are likely to impair (or halt) your operations with downtime.

Our Business continuity Solutions

With IntraLAN, Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) is about building and improving the resilience of the IT assets and network within your business.

  • Protecting data and systems
  • Redundant copies of data to protect you from ransomware
  • Virtual compatibility to recreate IT infrastructure on the fly

IntraLAN BC is a fully managed server protection and disaster recovery service. Including, complete server images, with server testing every 6 months and off-site hosting if the worst should happen.

Having a Business Continuity or Disaster Recovery plan ensures that you:

  • Keep trading in the event of a major incident
  • Significantly reduce the cost of disruption
  • Allow what would otherwise be unacceptable risks to be insured
  • Build customer trust and confidence in your business
  • Develop confidence in management’s ability to respond in a formal, planned and tested way
  • Have a competitive edge over those that don’t have a formal plan
  • Mitigate business risk and financial exposure
  • Prevent or minimise financial loss

What do you need?

  • IntraLAN’s BC model addresses all 3 key IT Security levels of a disaster.

    Severity level Examples
    1. File Loss Loss of individual files through server error, deletion, incorrect data loaded
    2. System Loss Loss of server – theft, flood, fire, hardware failure
    3. Displacement Loss of office infrastructure

    At the heart of BC is a uniquely designed and custom-built unit called the Local Data Manager (LDM). The LDM is a significantly powerful unit that is plugged anywhere on your local network (away from your servers!). This is where it backs up every nominated server, every night, in a format that is restorable onto dissimilar server hardware. It then makes a second copy to a removable harddrive (256AES encrypted) ofr off-site storage.

    Test Restores of any server can be performed on-demand which run on the LDM under VMWare. These allow you to review changes made last night (eg. emails, account transactions) for your own verification. No need to find the right tape, attend DR sites – it’s all done for you. On confirmation, we then re-issue you a certificate confirming your back-up status.

    Each LDM can look after 8 servers. The maximum data volume depends on the number of days of on-line roll-backs you want to keep. As an indication, the LDM can keep a total of 250Gb server data on-line for approximately one month.

    In the event that you lose a server (theft, fire, flood, etc) or you had a hardware failure (so now its repaired you have a blank system) we can recover your entire server(s) onto new or repaired hardware without fuss and generally within 4-6 hours of starting (subject to data volumes).

    Ultimately, if you lost your offices, we would perform the same restore onto new server(s) and either ship them on to your new temporary offices or host them at our Data Centre in Canary Wharf (100Mb access). Your users can then work from home or serviced offices anywhere with internet Access – using terminal services.

  • Instant individual file recovery (no popping home for the last tape, cataloguing it and restore). It’s a simple drag and drop via the LDM’s web interface, all at LAN speeds.

    Even if you lose an entire server (such as disk failure, corruption, theft, etc), with the LDM in place a complete 100Gb server would be recovered within 2-3 hours, even onto completely different hardware. If you’ve ever had to try to do that with a tape (even assuming media compatibility and a good back-up), you’ll know what a relief that is!

    In the event of complete office loss (and hence the LDM too), then we only require the removable disk which is a perfect copy of the LDM. We can restore your servers equally fast from this disk as the original LDM. The removable drive (additional available) also allows you to keep ‘archive copies’. These are cheaper per Gb than tapes and a lot more reliable and easier to catalogue.
