Having an effective backup and disaster recovery solution for your data is essential to running your business, particularly in today’s world of exponential data growth. You need to reduce the time to complete backups whilst at the same time, gain faster access to your backups to meet modern requirements for business continuity, availability, data protection and regulatory compliance. Off-site tape repositories and other legacy approaches simply won’t suffice in this fast-paced, fast-growth era.
With Illapa Protect Backup as a Service, you can take advantage of the cloud’s elasticity to pay for only what you need, when you need it.
For organisations looking for a cost-effective way to meet business continuity needs, cloud-based disaster recovery solutions can mitigate the cost and sometimes even the staffing needed to cover disaster planning and implementation in the enterprise.
However, no two services are alike. Especially in today’s hybrid IT environments, it’s critical to find a provider that can protect any type of infrastructure you need to protect, whether it’s physical servers, virtualized or cloud-based infrastructure, whether private or public. Illapa Protect offers comprehensive data replication, backup and recovery platforms that protect a wide variety of infrastructures for enterprise customers. Illapa Protect is particularly well-suited to the growing ranks of organisations that seek to leverage cloud-based data protection services.
Illapa Protect (powered by Veeam) offers protection to applications and data hosted in a hybrid or multi-cloud environment. The platform facilitates:
• Cloud based BaaS and DRaaS from on-premises or hosted environments
• Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) protection in a secondary cloud site
• Cross-cloud replication and migration across different cloud data centres or regions.
From the enterprise premises, Illapa Protect provides backup and recovery of VMware and Hyper-V environments, as well as agent-based backups of both Windows and Linux-based physical servers. The Agent for physical hosts is a lightweight program configured by Illapa Protect, that creates a secure socket layer/transport layer security (SSL/TLS) connection from the enterprise to Illapa Protect, to enable data backup. For typical backups, workloads are scheduled to be duplicated on a regular basis—often daily or every set number of days, based on the customer’s preference. Should the need arise due to equipment failures, site outages or larger emergencies, the backup can be spun up in the location of the customer’s choosing. Customers can restore to their own virtualized environments or directly to a cloud provider. Today, Illapa Protect can restore directly to both Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
