Backup and Disaster Recovery

We never let you down

What is BDR?

A Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) is the combination of disaster recovery solutions and data backup. Generally, they ensure a company’s business continuity. Surprisingly, disaster recovery and data backup are not the same. In fact, backing up without recovery in mind is equivalent to not backing up. In addition, there are other steps you have to take to restore your data if you need your backup successfully, such as assembling the right recovery environment (the proper storage, servers, and operating systems) and the right people, processes, and tools to bring back that backed up data.

Do All People Need Backup and Disaster Recovery?

All in all, all computer hardware fails. Undeniably, it is a fact of life. Whether from an accident or age, data loss is inevitable when hardware fails. Furthermore, an effective business continuity plan and BDR (Backup & Disaster Recovery) solution are essential to virtually every business today.

Because of sudden natural disasters, an increase in cyberattacks, and unforeseen hard disc failure, nobody can predict the future. To ensure that the data is safe and available when needed, we can create backup copies of it. Consequently, there is less downtime in the event of an unplanned event.

Indeed, backup and Data Recovery have come a long way. Correspondingly, the days of media, vaulted backup and manual recovery methods are long gone. Albeit, today’s BDR solutions provide secure, fast, monitored, continuous backup and rapid data restoration through a cloud-based architecture. Actually, you can cater to any business need with various options and ways available in the marketplace.

All Types of Backup and Disaster Recovery Systems

Individually Tailored for Your Needs

Full Backup

You can create a full backup by making copies of all the files and folders you’ve selected. When you make a full backup, it will include a copy of all the data you chose. Most people use it as their first backup. After that, they do incremental or differential backups.

Differential Backup

Differential backup is a process that begins with a full backup and subsequently backs up all changes made after the previous full backup. Furthermore, this allows much faster backups (but slower restores) and makes more efficient use of storage capacity.

Incremental Backup

The main difference between differential backup and incremental backup is that after the first complete backup, the changes that have occurred since the last backup cycle are the only ones retained in subsequent backups.

Mirror Backup

A mirror backup is a replica of the source that we continuously back up. If you delete a file using mirror backups, it will also be removed from the mirror backup. Additionally, you should exercise caution while using mirror backups because a file can be accidentally destroyed, compromised, or infected by a virus on the mirror.

Local and Cloud Backup (Hybrid)

$ 39 Monthly
  • $399 Setup Fee
  • A local backup may be quicker for recovery purposes, but the cloud provides that off-site location in the event of a primary location disaster. Local backup typically requires more in-house management and staff time. It's important to consider the many elements of cloud backup.

Restore Service

$ 450 One Time
  • Don't let criminals hold your data hostage. With TASProvider, recovering your data is as simple as eliminating the malware, deleting the criminally encrypted files, and restoring a good copy of your valuable data.

Backup Validation

$ 450 One Time
  • Backup validation is an important measure that should be included in any disaster recovery plan. It allows testing consistency and recoverability of your backups and also enables you to predict how much it will take to restore files after a data loss event.

Why Do Businesses Need Backup and Disaster Recovery?

  1. Indeed, there are countless examples where an unjustified faith in data backup software left an organization hanging after a disruption.
  2. Obviously, you should back up your data if you need to get it back one day.
  3. You should have the proper recovery systems connected to your data. Besides, you need to have suitable operating systems, hypervisors, storage, and servers in your recovery environmen.
  4. Back up data according to your recovery strategy.
  5. Connect the suitable recovery systems to the properly backed-up data.
  6. Create a programmatic recovery with the right people, right processes, and proper tools, and make sure they are all available at the right time.

The Evolution of Backup and Disaster Recovery

With this intention, data backup software used to be with tapes copied in a machine and stored in a physical vault, typically offsite. In the long run, that process did not change much. However, on-site backup solutions are almost as old as computing itself; they are trustworthy, tried, and accurate. Whether it is a database that needs backing up, unstructured files, applications, or anything in between, a backup solution can get the job done.

Nonetheless, the resultant backup is a collection of backup media that gets put in a vault that may go to disk, tape, or optical media. Accordingly, on-site backup has always had an offsite component to keep that media safe, which has consisted of somebody taking the backed-up media and moving it elsewhere. While this is often called offsite backup, it is more appropriately “offsite backup media vaulting.”

Yet, this vaulting form of offsite backup meant either moving media or, more progressively, creating a storage repository at a remote site after the backup was complete. Nonetheless, this either limited the bandwidth available to business users or modified the time frame in which a backup window could occur. Because it was storage was still prohibitively expensive to anyone but large enterprises.

New Generation in Backup and Disaster Recovery

The advancement of backup resulted in a new generation of offsite backup. In details, the solution supplier hosts and backs up data to an offsite platform.

Besides, the same evolution has merged backup with cloud computing. Due to this, it took that previous generation into this generation. By the time, bandwidth has increased, and it has become possible to use third-party services to handle online offsite backup. Also, hardware has become abstracted through virtualization. Additionally, the combination of increased bandwidth and commoditized hardware, coupled with the natural evolution of business continuity software, has enabled offsite backup and disaster recovery solutions to offer continuous data protection.

The main motivation behind cloud-based offsite backup is that, in the event of a disaster, neither on-site nor off-site backup will be sufficient. Unquestionably, in the event of a disaster, the data on backup media—whether on- or off-site—will not be sufficient to fully recover. In reality, to recover the data, new computer systems might be necessary.
