Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

It’s not a question of IF systems will fail, but when. Will you be prepared?

Evolve IP’s award-winning DRaaS service provides a proven, cost-effective and reliable suite of products that meet a variety of recovery time and recovery point objectives. From hypervisor-based DRaaS that runs just seconds behind production to traditional cloud backup we have a solution that will fit your organization’s needs and budget.

DRaaS ZT

A hypervisor-based replication product

vm-cloud

DRaaS ZT (Zerto) is a hypervisor-based replication product allowing customers flexibility and complete control over virtual machine replication, failover testing, failover and failback. Unlike traditional array-based replication and BC/DR solutions, DRaaS ZT is software only integrated in the VMware Hypervisor. It uses continuous replication and does not utilize snapshots, which can negatively impact your production environment.

  • Used between Evolve IP Availability Zones or between the customer’s VMware Hypervisor and the Evolve IP Cloud.
  • Employs the hypervisor for disaster recovery, enabling “virtual-aware” protection of mission-critical applications.
  • Allows customers control over their DR process through a flexible, self-service portal.
  • Is software-only and hardware-agnostic allowing customers to replicate from any type of storage to any type of storage.
  • Fully automates the entire failover and failback process, including creation of all VMs, reconfiguring IP addresses and executing custom scripts.

There are two editions of DRaaS ZT available:

  • The Standard Edition provides 24 hour RTO and near real time RPO.
  • The Premium Edition provides 4 hour RTO, near real time RPO, and requires a 25% reservation fee for recovery resources in an Evolve IP availability zone.

As Seen In Network World

Evolve IP’s DRaaS ZT is making the news as a favorite IT product of Leaf Commercial Capital in Network World:

The biggest benefit was the ability to reduce our overall recovery time objectives (RTO) from 48 hours or more to four hours or less with near real-time recovery points. We were able to do this while reducing our disaster recovery operational expenses. Additionally, our staff is lean and mean, and we’re now able to conduct a full disaster recovery exercise without leaving the office.

Cloud Backup

Automated cloud backup and recovery services

Protecting your critical data has never been easier. Evolve IP’s automated cloud backup and recovery services will boost your productivity and reduce your time spent managing data loss.

Why Evolve IP Cloud Backup?

Most businesses collect, retain and transmit data on a daily basis – data that is critical to the success of their organization. The threat of data theft, natural disasters and hardware failures can result in a hard hit to a business’ bottom line, costing days of downtime, thousands of dollars and irreversible damage to an organization’s reputation. Evolve IP’s Cloud Backup is highly secure and reliable and scales to meet your business’ unique needs.

Ease-of-use

  • Quick Start – Set up is fast. And if you have a lot of data to backup initially, we can provide seeding services without tying up available bandwidth.
  • Automatic Backups – Evolve IP can schedule your backups to happen whenever you want, as frequently as you want.
  • Manage Local and Offsite Backups – Evolve IP’s flexible solution allows for any of your data to be stored online and/or saved to local storage, eliminating the need for a separate local-only backup solution.

Security

  • Military-grade encryption – Files are secured in transit and at rest using 256-bit AES encryption and a private encryption key. SSL technology is used to manage the environment via self-service web portal.

Unlimited Backup

  • No More Limits – Backup whatever you want and keep it as long as you want.
  • Off-site Storage – Data is stored in two, SSAE 16 Type II compliant datacenters with redundant storage and biometric security.
  • Robust, Flexible Archiving – Data-archiving settings allow historical data to be saved as long as you need and meet applicable compliance standards.

DRaaS VE

DRaaS VE  – A fully integrated, fast and secure way to back, replicate and restore from Evolve IP’s cloud using Veeam® Cloud Connect™.

Ensure Availability of your mission-critical applications without the cost and complexity of building and maintaining a disaster recovery (DR) site. Veeam Cloud Connect—now with VM replication—provides fully integrated, fast and secure cloud-based DR through Evolve IP’s One Cloud™ or The Compliance Cloud™.

Most businesses collect, retain and transmit data on a daily basis – data that is critical to the success of their organization. The threat of data theft, natural disasters and hardware failures can result in a hard hit to a business’ bottom line, costing days of downtime, thousands of dollars and irreversible damage to an organization’s reputation. Veeam Cloud Connect (DRaaS VE) is highly secure and reliable and scales to meet your business’ unique needs.

Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect

The 3-2-1 Rule states that companies need to keep three copies of their data, stored on two types of media, with one copy off site. Getting backups off site can be challenging due to limited bandwidth, exploding data volumes and a lack of resources required to build or maintain a true off-site backup repository.

Veeam Cloud Connect allows you to master the 3-2-1 Rule, preventing you from dumping money and resources into a second site or adding bandwidth with these features:

  • Hosted off-site backups: Get backups off site to Evolve IP’s hosted cloud repository through a secure SSL connection with no additional Veeam licensing required
  • Complete visibility and control: Access and recover data in hosted backup repositories directly from the backup console; track cloud repository consumption and receive reminders for hosted storage renewals
  • A modern backup architecture: Leverage Veeam’s modern backup technology, including backup copy jobs with built-in WAN acceleration, forever incremental backups, GFS (grandfather-father-son) retention policies and more — all built into one product
  • End-to-end encryption: Encrypt all data at source (before it leaves your network perimeter), in flight and at rest, without negatively impacting the data reduction ratios of built-in compression and WAN acceleration.

Key Differentiators:

Built-in technology: Veeam Cloud Connect is built into Veeam’s Availability solutions for all end users at no additional charge and with no additional licensing required.

Single infrastructure: Avoid the need to maintain a secondary site and incur capital expenses in order to build and support additional infrastructure for off-site backup or DR.

Simple networking: Built-in network extension appliances to simplify networking complexity and preserve communication with and between running VMs, regardless of the physical location.

Pay as you go: Get backups and replicas off site with a pricing model that allows you to pay only for what you need.

Business Continuity & Disaster Avoidance

Despite the interchangeable use of these terms in most businesses, Business Continuity and Disaster Avoidance / Recovery are related, but different concepts. Fortunately, services from Evolve IP can support both.

Regardless of the specific plan, it is safe to say that in the wake of terrorist attacks, multiple wars, and significant weather emergencies, along with increased governmental compliance scrutiny, businesses are more concerned today than ever before about Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery.

Disaster Recovery is the process of re-establishing operations (IT or otherwise) of a business in the event of a disaster. A disaster could be a fire, terrorist event, or weather emergency – or any event that prevents normal resumption of business for a period of time. As such, disaster recovery generally indicates resumption of business over time – a few days or longer.

Business Continuity has a shorter recovery window. It is a plan for business or process resumption in smaller events such as a carrier outage, power outage, or non-emergency weather event and generally requires an immediate or near-time resumption of business.

What about communications?

While many businesses have some form of DR plan for their data operations, most do have not have any plan for the continued operation of their voice services in the event of a disaster. Since most phone systems reside at the customer location, an on‐site disaster or simple outage effectively disconnects that location from the rest of the world. Customers and vendors calling that location are met, unceremoniously, with a “fast busy” signal.

When your office is offline, The Evolved Office: Phone System answers inbound calls, forwards to voicemail, or automatically reroutes calls to cell phones. If a location is unavailable for a period of time, employees can simply take their phone home or use a soft client to remain productive and available at their extension without your customers knowing they’re “homesourcing.”

How can you remain productive when disaster strikes?

Most businesses have a simple DR plan that involves sending backups to an off-site facility or using an online service to backup data. While this plan ensures the business will not lose its data assets, it does not detail exactly how that data and applications will be recovered, how quickly they can be recovered, or how they will be used in the event that the server or infrastructure on which it was originally located is lost or destroyed. Nor does it account for how users will continue to communicate with the server or applications, each other, customers, and vendors if a location is unreachable.

By cloudsouring your critical systems to Evolve IP, your business will access and utilize the resources, servers and software in our world class Technology Centers, virtually eliminating any concern that a disaster, or even a simple outage, will affect services at your site. We refer to this strategy as Disaster Avoidance as services which would have otherwise been unavailable for a period of time continue to operate without disruption. Also included in our DRaaS product is our business continuity management services..

By moving your applications and infrastructure to Evolve IP’s private cloud, you can ensure that your applications are available from any location regardless of what’s happening at your office.

Even if you cannot move your production IT operations to the cloud, Evolve IP’s Disaster-Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) products can support your operations when business interruptions occur.

WHY EVOLVE IP FOR DRAAS?

Increased natural disasters have wreaked havoc on businesses in recent years, while the threat of data loss, breach or corruption continues to grow. A disaster recovery plan is no longer enough. Customers are looking for data protection and automated options for business continuity. We’ve designed our DRaaS suite to allow businesses to determine their level of risk and spend accordingly. Some competitor’s solutions provide just basic cloud storage and back up, while Evolve IP provides true disaster recovery with business continuity, so that our customers not only know where their data is backed up, they also know how and when they will have it restored.

93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.1

20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every 5 years.2

Of those without a DRP, 80% that experience a significant data loss are likely to go out of business within one month.3

54% of organizations spend less than $50,000 annually on DR and BC.4
