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
    • Lower Cost than Replication
    • Combination of Management requirements
    • Some protection against ransomware/cryptolocker attacks + Backup
  • Cons
    • Increased complexity of solution and design
    • Longest recovery time

Solutions components would include;

  • Backup including Backup Management
  • Dedicated active server host/s
  • Smaller amount of live SAN (~3TB)
  • Higher amount of Cloud Storage (~30TB)
  • Dark Fibre/point to point link
