Realtime DR Replication Backup Disaster Recovery Index

For a Hybrid DR solution, the Real-time components would be deployed using native in-built technologies (such as AD, Exchange DAG, SQL Replication) to ensure the business/mission critical items operate active/active between on-site and off-site with less critical components protected via low cost backup, however with the newer backup technologies (such as Veeam), recoveries can be undertaken within hours, as required.

  • Pros
    • Mix-n-match approaches (including backup)
    • Some protection against ransomware / cryptolocker attacks
    • Select Active / Active (AD, Exchange DAG, SQL)
