What is a BDR?
A BDR (Backup and Disaster Recover) is a device that lives in your IT room with your servers and other equipment. It automatically backs up your data and stores it locally and offsite in the cloud. Backups are scheduled to happen at regular intervals throughout the day to ensure the BDR always has the most up-to-date data in the event of an emergency. The BDR also replicates the servers it is attached to and can act as a backup server in the event the real server dies. This means you don’t have to be down when a hardware component dies on your server. Instead the BDR imitates the actual server on the network so business can continue to operate while the real server is being fixed.
Why is it important?
Small businesses are positioned for the perfect data storm: more data, at more value, with more risk. Small businesses are creating more data than ever, the value of their data is increasing, and there are more risks of losing the data.
What about my current backup?
Traditional backup methods such as tape, disk, and strict NAS devices are no longer sufficient. In fact, most traditional backups are unreliable when it comes to recovering data. Technological innovations have set a new standard, Intelligent Business Continuity, which goes beyond data protection by delivering automated assurance, continuous protection, secured storage, and instant recovery.
Designed for small to medium sized businesses, our BDR is an advanced backup, disaster recovery and business continuity solution that is easy to use, cost effective, and acts as an insurance policy against costly downtime. It significantly decreases the likelihood of any extended interruptions in day to day business operations.
