1. Data Backup & Replication

The basic idea behind our DRaaS is to store backup copies of critical data and applications in a secure, off-site location so that they can be quickly spun up and easily recovered in the event of a disaster.

Here's a detailed overview of how DRaaS works:


Data Backup and Replication:

Our Data Backup and Replication are key services offered by our DRaaS to ensure the protection and availability of critical data and applications for our clients.

Our DRaaS is responsible for creating and maintaining backup copies of a client's important data and applications, and storing them in a secure, off-site location, typically in the cloud. This is done using data backup and replication technologies to ensure that the backup copies are always up-to-date and accurate.

In the event of a disaster or disruption, the DRaaS cloud environment managed by our Cyber SOC is responsible for activating the backup copies of data and applications and switching over to them.

 

This helps ensure business continuity and minimize the impact of the disaster. Our DRaaS also provides fail-over and fail-back capabilities to allow clients to switch to the backup copies of data and applications as needed.

Additionally, our  DRaaS solution is responsible for monitoring and reporting on the status of the backup copies and ensuring that they are always up-to-date and available when needed. Our DRaaS solution also offers a range of expertise and resources to help clients implement and maintain their disaster recovery plan, including help with setting up and configuring the DRaaS solution, as well as ongoing support and maintenance to ensure that the solution is always functioning properly.

In summary, our DRaaS solution offers Data Backup and Replication services to help clients protect and recover their critical data and applications in the event of a disaster or disruption. By leveraging the expertise and resources of a DRaaS provider, clients can minimize the risk of data loss and ensure a quick and seamless recovery process.

2. Fail-over & Fail-back

 Fail-over & Fail-back:

Failover and Failback Capabilities are critical components of our DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) solution.

 

These capabilities are offered to clients to help ensure the protection and availability of their critical data and applications in the event of a disaster or disruption.

Fail-over refers to the process of switching from a primary data center or application to a secondary or backup location in the event of a disaster or disruption. This helps ensure business continuity by allowing critical data and applications to remain accessible and available, even in the event of a failure.

Fail-back refers to the process of switching back to the primary data center or application once it has been restored and is functional again. This process helps ensure that data is always being served from the most up-to-date and functional location.

Our Cyber SOC, with the client, is  responsible for implementing and managing the fail-over and fail-back capabilities. This involves configuring our DRaaS solution to automatically switch to the backup copies of data and applications in the event of a disaster or disruption, and then switching back to the primary data center or application once it has been restored.

Our DRaaS solution also provides clients with the tools and resources needed to test and verify the fail-over and fail-back capabilities, helping to ensure that the DRaaS solution is always functioning properly.

 

This can include regular testing and simulation exercises, as well as ongoing monitoring and reporting to help clients keep track of the status of their disaster recovery plan.

In summary, Fail-over and Fail-back Capabilities are essential components of a]our DRaaS solution, helping to ensure that critical data and applications remain available and accessible in the event of a disaster or disruption. Our Cyber SOC is responsible for implementing and managing these capabilities to help clients minimize the risk of data loss and ensure business continuity.

3. Real-time Monitoring & Reporting

Real-time Monitoring and Reporting:

Real-time Monitoring and Reporting are important features of a DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) solution, offered by a DRaaS provider to help clients ensure the protection and availability of their critical data and applications.

 

Our Cyber SOC is  responsible for monitoring the status of the backup copies of data and applications in real-time and providing clients with real-time updates and reports on their status. This helps clients quickly identify any issues or disruptions that may impact the availability of their data and applications.

Our DRaaS solution uses advanced monitoring and reporting tools and technologies to continuously monitor the backup copies of data and applications, ensuring that they are always up-to-date and accurate. This can include monitoring data replication, data backup processes, and the availability of the backup copies.

Our DRaaS solution also provides clients with access to dashboards and reports that provide real-time visibility into the status of their disaster recovery plan. This can include information on the status of data backup and replication processes, the availability of backup copies, and other critical information related to the disaster recovery plan.

In the event of a disaster or disruption, our Cyber SOC  can use real-time monitoring and reporting to quickly identify the issue and activate the backup copies of data and applications as needed. This helps ensure business continuity and minimize the impact of the disaster.

In summary, Real-time Monitoring and Reporting are essential components of  our DRaaS solution, helping clients to ensure the protection and availability of their critical data and applications. Our Cyber SOC is responsible for implementing and managing these features, providing clients with real-time visibility into the status of their disaster recovery plan and ensuring that backup copies of data and applications are always up-to-date and available when needed.

4. Virtualization Technology

Virtualization Technology:

Virtualization technologies plays a vital role in our DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) solution. Virtualization technologies allow a DRaaS solution to create virtual replicas of a client's physical or virtual infrastructure, including their data, applications, and operating systems, in our secure, dual redundant cloud off-site locations in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Virtualization technologies enables our DRaaS solution  to create a virtual environment that is an exact copy of a client's physical or virtual environment, which can be activated quickly in the event of a disaster or disruption.

 

This helps ensure business continuity and minimize the impact of a disaster on the client's operations.

The virtual machines (vm's) are continuously updated in real-time, ensuring that the backup copies are always up-to-date and accurate.

In the event of a disaster or disruption, our DRaaS solution will allow the client to activate the virtual replicas, which can then be accessed and used to continue business operations. This helps ensure that critical data and applications remain available and accessible, even in the event of a disaster.

Virtualization technologies also enables our DRaaS solution offer flexible and scalable disaster recovery solutions that can be customized to meet the unique needs of each client.

 

For example, our DRaaS solution  can use virtualization technologies to create a disaster recovery plan that meets the specific recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) of a client.

In summary, virtualization technologies are critical components of a DRaaS solution, allowing our DRaaS solution  to create virtual replicas of a client's data, applications, and operating systems in a secure, off-site location.
