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