Focus’ personalized approach to business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) strategies are based on our personal knowledge of your business, and are designed for flexibility, creativity and redundancy to keep your operation running smoothly in the face of interruptions.
Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Models
Alternative/Secondary Data Center
A geographically separate alternative or secondary data center offers redundancy for servers and storage but requires the purchase of duplicate hardware and software. Secondary sites enable off-site replication with no loss of data, and can provide recovery or failover times in minutes. At the highest level of replication, transactions from the same application are processed in each of the two sites simultaneously.
Hosted Data Center
In a hosted environment, data, applications and operating systems are replicated from the production environment to a secure, environmentally-controlled data center facility. If replication is performed regularly and completely, this approach offers rapid failover capabilities to a production-ready environment in the event of an outage at the primary facility.
Cloud-Based Data Center
Business operations can now be run successfully in the public or private cloud. With redundancy and automation in the cloud management layer, a failed server can be launched in another cloud in minutes. With this level of automation and control, organizations can scale when demand changes, and entire server deployments can be migrated relatively quickly to a new infrastructure.
