Cloud Backup & DR

Keep Systems and Data Always Safe and Available

Your business data is the bread and butter of your business, and you can not afford to lose that critical data. The constant availability of the data is essential to run your business, but in an event of a large-scale disaster can readily disrupt systems.  In legacy terms, building a disaster recovery meant a duplicate network that would run in parallel with the production system, a very expensive solution.  Network Elites lets you control Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service costs by letting you customize disaster recovery services to fit your business needs and budget. You will never be surprised with extra fees at the time of recovery.

Cloud Backup and advantages

It is imperative for businesses to start backing up their data in the cloud to protect your data.  A ransomware attack on their network will encrypt their data until a ransom is paid, but in the event you have backups running in the cloud with another set of credentials, the attack will not be able to reach your data in the cloud.  Network Elites offer a simple to use and simple to configure option, where your dataset can be backed up at the local resources for quick restore and at the cloud resources for further protection.

Takes Advantage of Existing Infrastructure
The use of data backup is cost-effective for companies because it seamlessly integrates with the infrastructure that is already in place. You do not have to worry about purchasing any new equipment and it backups each critical file. Once the backup is complete, it stores the encrypted files at an offsite data center. This whole process takes advantage of cloud technology without requiring your company any additional expenses.

The use of a cloud backup offers the best protection available and is much more reliable than other backup data and recovery services. You can quickly restore lost data at any time or location. With such high reliability, your employees will be able to focus on their work without worrying about accidentally deleting important files.

File Transfer Security
Keeping your critical work files protected is an essential function of an IT company. Each file is encrypted before they are transmitted to an offsite data center. Hackers will be unable to penetrate these files and they will be securely sent from your server to the data center.

Reduce Costs
Maintaining low costs is a goal for businesses of all sizes. The use of cloud services provides a low-cost solution for file protection. Losing valuable data can become costly and time-consuming. Cloud technology allows your organization to restore data, which ultimately helps your company reduce costs.

Better Manage IT Resources
Cloud technology allows your IT team to focus on more important tasks and become much more productive. The use of an IT expert will take advantage of cloud technology and enable your employees to work much quicker and efficient. On the other hand, companies that do not use cloud technology are at a severe disadvantage.

Improve Compliance Safeguards
Companies are always looking for better ways to improve safeguards. Backing up data in multiple data centers offers the best protection from outside threats or a natural disaster. It also remains much more cost-efficient than manually copying files onto another drive.

Eliminates Tape Backup
The use of tape backups are usually expensive and can easily be stolen. On the other hand, the use of cloud technology allows you to backup critical files much quicker with fewer costs. They also have a much lower risk of being stolen because of the use of encryption. The data can also be restored at a much faster rate than manually restoring them with a tape backup.

Advantage of DR in the Cloud

Network Elites offers DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) which provides an alternative to traditional DR practices so that your business can achieve greater cost savings while achieving more security and reliability in the wake of the disaster. Traditional site-to-site data replication has inherent expenses that cloud DR solutions bypass, including the upfront costs of building out a geographically redundant data repository some 500 miles away.  

Our goal is to keep your business online in the wake of a disaster that could be caused by human, natural causes, or cyber-attack which is crucial to avoiding costly downtime. As a traditional disaster recovery is a comprehensive plan that accounts for people just as much as data, cloud-based DR alleviates the stress associated with the data and network side of your DR plan.  

Here are the benefits of moving to a cloud-based DR plan:

Moving from OPEX to CAPEX
An effective DR plan requires that your data be backed-up, replicated, and stored off-site about 500 miles, or more, away. This helps prevent regional disasters from knocking out both your on-premise data center and your off-premise DR repository. The upfront capital expenditures associated with building a second data repository, however, are numerous. There are warehouse costs, maintenance costs, hardware costs, and transportation costs if data is stored on disks and tapes. In the cloud, your business can move its DR plan to an operational costs model where getting data off-premise and building in redundancy can be achieved from day 1.

Failover Testing
Some cloud providers like NewCloud Networks allow organizations to perform failover testing at least once a year as part of providing DR services. This allows your organization to easily test your DR plan and quickly address issues as they arise. Many organizations that isn’t utilizing a cloud-based DR plan fail to perform tests on their DR plans which is risky considering disasters could arise.

Protection from all types of disasters
In the cloud, your business can achieve preparation for all sorts of disasters, including human error, natural disasters, and cyber-attacks. Backing up and replication your organization’s data to the cloud can assure that there is always a copy of your data available when you need to failover.

Data redundancy allows your organization to store its data in two separate places. In the cloud, achieving geographical redundancy is made easy. If your business operates in Los Angeles, your cloud-based DR plan could incorporate storing your data both on-premise in LA and more than 500 miles away in Denver or Dallas.

Low Latency
In the cloud, your organization will experience ultra-low latency. This is imperative when your organization needs to failover to replicas. Speedy recovery is crucial to mitigate downtime and high latency could mean added downtime. While performing backup and replica jobs to the cloud, ultra-low latency makes these jobs quick and effortless.
