Process Recovery Focus: our primary focus is on maintaining your business’ operational capabilities, even in the event of a system failure or disaster. As part of implementing the Backman service, we begin with a consultation that helps you evaluate what business processes are most important and we develop a recovery plan so that everything is ready long before there is any type of emergency.
Complete backups: image-based backups that take snapshots of entire systems, not just the data, simplifying and accelerating the recovery process. When a restore is required, everything is restored - operating systems, applications, files, and user settings.
Frequent backups: we take snapshots every hour. This allows us to restore data and business processes to almost any desired point in time. In the event of a failure or disaster, even recently modified data is still available.
Standby systems: the backup appliance that manages the backups also functions as a host system for emergency recoveries. Any systems designated as business critical are configured for standby status, allowing for near immediate system recovery.
Off-site Replication: in the event of a disaster, having locally stored backups isn’t enough. The Backman provides automated, frequent off-site replication to maintain complete copies in a secure location.
Disaster Recovery: should an on-site catastrophe destroy the on-site IT infrastructure, the offsite backups can be virtualized in the secure cloud and operations can be run from the cloud until the on-site environment is operational.
How does it work?
Setup and Backup Process
- Ethixa provides a professional consultation to identify the critical data and business processes that are important to your company.
- Ethixa orders, installs, and configures a specialized backup appliance that stores, protects, and manages your backup images in addition to facilitating backup replication and providing local virtual system virtualization for disaster recovery and business continuity.
- Ethixa remotely monitors and manages backups and backup replication. Each backup is verified and virtualized for near-immediate recovery capability.
Service Restoration (Achieving Business Continuity)
- File and Folder Restores - Ethixa restores files and folders upon request. Included with monthly service.
- System Restores - In the event of a system failure, Ethixa will quickly restore business operations through local backup virtualization until the failed system can be recovered. Billed at Ethixa standard rates.
- Site Restores - In the event of a widespread or site failure, Ethixa will maintain critical business operations via cloud virtualization of replicated systems until a local site can be brought back online. Billed at Ethixa standard rates.
