When it comes to IBM backup and disaster recovery services, there are a variety of options to choose from. Determining which one will work for you depends solely upon the needs of your business. While larger corporations that serve a wide customer base may need robust high availability services, small corporations that move at a slower pace may only require simple backup with manual recovery options.
To help you determine which IBM backup service can best fulfill your business needs, consider the following features of each type of service:
- Daily offsite backups – Designed purely to protect and preserve your data, this service automatically backs up the data within your environment for later recovery if needed.
- Cloud-based disaster recovery – These plans include options to have your production environment back up and running in less than 12 hours, in the event of downtime or disaster.
- Tape-based disaster recovery – These IBM backup plans offer the same reliability as cloud-based recovery plans, just with slightly longer recovery times.
- High availability – For the minimum downtime, choose high availability, which utilizes role-swapping to keep recovery times to as little as one hour, no matter if you are facing planned downtime due to a simple software update, or catastrophic hardware failure from a natural disaster.
