On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy – a ferocious 900-mile wide storm packing 115 mile an hour winds – made landfall in the New Jersey/New York area, bringing with it widespread destruction. Downtown Manhattan flooded as a record breaking 14 foot storm surge in New York Harbor caused a breach in the seawall. Widespread power outages plunged the city into darkness, and businesses found themselves paralyzed the following morning and in the many days that followed.
Highlights of brightstack’s Back-up and Disaster Recovery Solution
An onsite Network Attached Storage for instantaneous data recovery
Two online data back-up centers for added security
Simplest and most cost-effective data back-up and disaster recovery solution on the market today
Unless they were customers of brightstack’s FlexOffice® Back-up and Disaster Recovery solution. All of brightstack’s customers had 100% uptime during the disaster and had no loss of data or network accessibility. Although their workplace may have been inaccessible, each of their employees had remote access to their business applications and files from their home computer or mobile device allowing them to continue conducting business while other companies around them struggled. It was a powerful reminder of the importance of a back-up and disaster recovery plan, regardless of where you live.
brightstack®’s Backup and Disaster Recovery solution consists of an onsite Network Attached Storage (NAS) with double Offsite Data Replication. This allows for seamless data recovery and restoration in the event of a failure or disaster.
We save “generations” of data on the NAS, similar to a tape in a set of backup tapes. Data is then replicated offsite to two other data centers from the NAS. This service protects your data as frequently as every 15 minutes, every day. This service offers a backup retention period of 48 hours of Intra-daily, 14 daily, 5 weekly and unlimited monthly archives on the NAS which can be selectively pushed out to the remote storage facility. The option of expanding the retention period from a 1-Year to 7-Year History is also provided. Your data is stored (in encrypted form) in two secure online data backup centers, located hundreds of miles apart from each other. The service will also allow you to restore a failed server immediately from the onsite NAS.
Don’t take a chance on your business’ ability to survive the next “superstorm” or other more minor causes of data loss or network disruption. Let brightstack® be your back-up.
