How to simplify application recovery

Simplifying Data & Application Recovery for Complex Systems

Maintaining a business’s IT infrastructure in today’s environment can pose significant challenges. If you oversee IT operations, it’s fair to assert that you will inevitably encounter system disruptions, whether they result from hacking or simple system errors. Ensuring the smooth operation of these systems falls under your responsibility, necessitating a recovery methodology that not only demonstrates reliability but also reduces the number of required steps.


Navigating the Complex IT Ecosystem

Today’s Chief Information Officers (CIOs) do more than just recover data; they must skillfully navigate the intricate web of virtual machines, database services, external devices, and other components constituting the complex IT ecosystem. This ecosystem must function seamlessly, akin to assembling a complex jigsaw puzzle. Each virtual machine, external service, and internal component requires meticulous orchestration to uphold data integrity and system performance. Deviations or instances where restored data falls out of sync can lead to data corruption and loss.

If you still depend on traditional methods to back up your data and applications, you will encounter substantial challenges during recovery. Traditional backup approaches can consume hours, if not days, to complete the restoration process, contingent on the system’s size. By the time the new system accesses the backup media, the data isn’t merely outdated; it may also be corrupted, rendering recovery impossible. Furthermore, if your system integrates both old and new architectures, compatibility issues may arise. The question remains pressing: how can you swiftly and effortlessly recover data and applications for such intricate systems?


Streamlining Recovery with Continuous Data Protection (CDP)

Now, let’s engage in some imaginative thinking. What if you could streamline the recovery process while preserving consistency across every component of your application and related services during restoration? What if you could manage all your complex data and application components as a single logical unit, ensuring precise data sequencing to maintain data integrity? The promising news is that you can achieve this with Continuous Data Protection (CDP) from Info Exchange’s security partner, ZERTO.

Zerto simplifies the recovery process by treating the entire application ecosystem, encompassing applications, virtual machines, databases, external and internal services, as a unified entity. It prioritizes write-order fidelity, significantly reducing the risk of data corruption during recovery. Additionally, it ensures full data symmetry by synchronizing all components, thus eliminating the risk of inconsistencies during recovery. Furthermore, Zerto’s CDP journaling capabilities record changes every 5 to 10 seconds across all applications and components, enabling rapid and efficient rollback and recovery. Consequently, Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) are measured in seconds rather than hours or days.

While data backup is undeniably crucial, the equally vital ability to restore it effectively remains a priority. In partnership with Zerto, we offer a comprehensive solution that simplifies the recovery process by treating complex application components as a unified entity, ensuring reliability, consistency, and efficiency. So, when the million-dollar question arises – “Can you quickly and seamlessly recover your data?” – the resounding answer is “Yes.”
