When designing a solution you need to think carefully about your Recovery Point and Recovery Time Objective. No solution is worth implementing if it can’t meet your availability objectives.
In a virtual world, the backup is more important than ever before. The importance of a host server is much higher than any single server and recovery speeds are critical. At the same time you cannot allow the backup to slow applications down. Today’s backup tools need to be virtual server aware but also non-intrusive.
Virtual backups are a clever way to protect your data seamlessly without interruption to services, often making use of the virtualisation software at the server and storage layer.
Virtual backups take minutes, not hours and, more importantly, offer similar recovery times. This means you can be back up and running much faster than a traditional approach. Many of today’s tools also offer the ability to replicate data for business continuity and disaster recovery.
