Your data is everything and business need to consider data loss seriously. Nowadays we rely heavily on knowing that our data is secure, private and safe.

But how can you assure this with your company’s data? Do you have an established plan for your business?

Image you lost your phone or laptop. Scary right? Now imagine that you haven’t backed up that data – catastrophic right? Now imagine your phone or laptop is your business data, and it’s gone, vanished, done. Is there a word that’s more impactful than catastrophic? Because that’s the effect  on a business without backups and a recovery plan.  There would be no business.

A business disaster recovery plan

A Business Disaster Recovery Plan is implemented  in preparation of a serious issue such as a server going down, or a disaster such as a hurricane, flood or fire.

There are various ways to store your own backups. It could be via a hosted cloud server, devices such as an external drive, a local server and more.

Or you could talk to us and set up a serious backup and recovery plan that’s 100% guaranteed.

Benefits of a disaster recovery plan

  • Rapid replication and copying of information, software, and application
  • Reliable recovery of information
  • Business continuity
  • Long term cost savings
  • Protected business reputation
  • Non-disruptive system testing
  • Minimal system downtime during replication
  • Compliance with industry regulations
  • 24/7 client support

Who needs a disaster recovery plan?

The simple answer – every business should have a VMware disaster recovery plan. Try to imagine dealing with the loss of your businesses information, perhaps accumulated over years of work. How would you cope? How long would it take to recover what your business needs to become functional? For most companies, the downtime alone in a disaster situation would be catastrophic. VMware disaster recovery solutions ensure that your business is protected and secure, no matter what happens

Veeam Backup & Replication for Windows Server with Hyper-V

Veeam helps you maximize your cloud opportunity and becomes your entire virtualized platform.

Webhosting.net uses Veeam as its backup solution for VMware and Hyper-V backup, recovery and replication. It is fast, flexible, and a reliable recovery method of client hosted applications and data.

Backing up Microsoft Hyper-V environments

Veeam Backup & Replication produces image-level backups of VMs. It treats VMs as objects, not as a set of files. When you back up VMs, Veeam Backup & Replication copies a VM image as a whole, at a block level. Image-level backups can be used for different types of restore, including Instant VM Recovery, entire VM restore, VM file recovery, file-level recovery and so on.

The backup technology is typically used for VMs with lower RTOs. When the primary VM fails, you need some time to restore VM data from a compressed and deduplicated backup file.

Veeam provides fast and reliable backup for vSphere and Hyper-V virtual environments —
all without the use of agents.

  • Image-level VM backups: Create application-consistent backups with advanced
    application-aware processing
  • Backup from Storage Snapshots for HPE, NetApp, EMC and NimbleNEW:
    Generate ultra-fast backups with low RPOs
  • Scale-out Backup Repository™: Create a single virtual pool of backup storage
    to which backups can be assigned, offering the freedom to easily extend backup
    storage capacity
  • Veeam Cloud Connect: Get backups off site without the cost and complexity
    of building and maintaining an off-site infrastructure; fast and secure cloud
    backup to a service provider

how veeam cloud connect works

  • SureBackup®: Automatically test and verify every backup and every virtual
    machine (VM) for recoverability
  • Built-in WAN acceleration: Get backups off site up to 50x faster and save
    bandwidth
  • Direct Storage Access: Perform vSphere backups faster and with reduced impact
    by backing up via Direct SAN Access and Direct NFS Access

The 3-2-1 Rule

The 3-2-1 rule suggests that you should keep three copies of your data, store it on two types of media and ensure that one copy is off site. However, backing up off site can be problematic due to restricted bandwidth, surging data volumes and insufficient resources necessary to build or manage a true offsite backup repository.

With Veeam Cloud Connect, you can adhere to the 3-2-1 rule without bleeding money and resources into a second site or increasing bandwidth—simply utilize cloud backup repository services from Webhosting.net and leverage Veeam’s Built-in WAN Acceleration technology and so much more.

Data Backup

We also have a VMware data backup solution and here’s how it works.
