There was a time when an imminent threat of a hurricane would call for backup tapes being loaded into trucks and evacuated along with all of the cars jammed into the redirected traffic on the highways.
The days of backup tapes being the first line of defense against natural and manmade disasters are over. The downtime and manual disaster recovery procedures, heterogenous recovery hardware and incompatible device drivers, extended recovery times, are no longer tolerable in today’s always-on datacenter environments.
The Indian River County Clerk of the Circuit Court serves as the keeper of court records and documentation of residents’ lives from birth to death. The Clerk’s office also performs a multitude of different constitutional and statutory functions or duties, representing the broadest and most diverse mantle of responsibility of any locally elected official. Fortunately, the Indian River County Clerk datacenter has been modernized with Tego Data’s robust, converged system infrastructure and its critical data is secured with Tego Data’s cloud-based, Tego Guard™ (DRaaS).
“We have a robust DR solution, designed and installed by Tego and when we needed them, Tego with its knowledge and experience was there for us. From beginning to end we had their support.”
Clerk of Court, Indian River County
Director Information Technology
Leveraging NetApp Storage with its premium software bundle including SnapMirror™ & FlexClone™ and VMware virtualization, replicated VMDKs can be started at the DR site, far away in Texas, at Tego Data’s cloud datacenter facility.
With a few simple commands, the SnapMirror™ replication can be halted and the replicated FlexClone™ can be started at the DR site. The improved RTO and RPO, has been accelerated from multiple days to <15 minutes. Gone are the days of camping out in the DR site with a box full of tapes, struggling to make the disparate hardware accept the backup images that were created on the original servers.
FlexClone™ virtual servers are easily started inside the Tego Data™ cloud service with a few simple commands. The virtual machine abstraction eliminates incompatible device drivers and all of the other complications that historically complicate DR.
Today’s always-on, 24/7 datacenters and 21st century compliance requirements dictate robust infrastructure that cannot be supported with 20th century toolsets. Tego Guard™, Tego Safe™, and Tego Fortress™ solutions ensure that your data is safe and your servers and applications are always on and compliant in today’s regulatory environment.
