The Common Sense of Online Backup
November 1st, 2011 By: Kevin Normandeau
Are you considering a new solution for backup? A hard examination of what that will take may be daunting. In this Sungard whitepaper “Five Simple Steps for Transforming Your Application Backup with Online Recovery Services” learn how to approach the issue both methodically and economically.
As the paper notes an outsourced solution clearly brings value because of the hidden expense with in-house systems. However, there may be sticker shock in looking to transform this critical part of your business. Here you will find a roadmap on how to implement a service and transition from what is typically a costly capital expenditure (CapEx) to a more tolerable operational expenditure (OpEx).
The keys to successfully implementing such a strategy are outlined in five simple steps and each one is explained in detail. Highlighted and advocated is a slow approach. The steps show you how to question and prioritize. This includes how to critically analyze what systems need to be backed up first? What is the effect of these systems on the overall business and how quickly do they need to be recovered?
This whitepaper will give you a better understanding of how to analyze your continuity strategy as well as offer a good alternative to the traditional labor intensive methods you may be using.
