Infrastructure Disaster Recovery

Infrastructure Disaster Recovery

Comprehensive business continuity planning at all levels, from certain IT infrastructure components to integrated business processes.

Key Features

IT infrastructure survey in terms of continuity

IT infrastructure survey in terms of continuity

Auditing your IT solutions helps us evaluate your current fault and disaster tolerance.
Business Impact Analysis

Business Impact Analysis

We evaluate the consequences of IT downtime and define RTO/RPO for IT services depending on their business impact, as well as make a list of threats that will underlie recovery and continuity scenarios.
Design and deployment of a disaster-tolerant IT architecture, continuity strategy elaboration

Design and deployment of a disaster-tolerant IT architecture, continuity strategy elaboration

You get a custom DR solution concept and the quote. We select a best-fit IT platform, design a to-be solution, customize and test disaster-tolerant IT system configurations.
DRP and BCP development

DRP and BCP development

Organizational documentation describes role models, activation and stage completion criteria, participant lists, and interaction mechanisms. We develop detailed DRPs for particular IT systems and BCPs for certain processes and resources.
DRP and BCP testing

DRP and BCP testing

Testing is organized in such a way as to have a minimum impact on the business. We identify technical measures adopted in the testing process, detect drawbacks of the testing process and give recommendations on how to improve it.
Disaster Recovery as a Service

Disaster Recovery as a Service

  • Backup data center deployment and administration service saves you the trouble of a backup and recovery infrastructure.
  • DRaaS (Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service) offers Hystax Acura based automatic replication of virtual machines to CROC Cloud. Your business processes don't stop even for a minute.

Use Cases

Huge business losses in case of IT downtime

If an IT service interruption causes serious harm to your business, you need an effective plan to ensure disaster tolerance and fast disaster recovery of IT infrastructure.

Legal/regulatory compliance

We will help develop DRPs upon regulatory requests and audit your DR/BC measures for compliance with ISO 22301, banking and industry standards, etc.

Evaluating the effectiveness of your own DRP/BCP

We will check if your DRP/BCP are up-to-date and performable.

High cost of DR/BC implementation

If ensuring business continuity is too expensive for you, we will help you find the balance between the reasonable BC investment and acceptable losses.
FAQ
Why conduct business impact analysis (BIA)? Do I need it?
Business impact analysis helps evaluate the necessary investments for implementing a disaster-tolerant infrastructure. During a BIA we survey employees from customer's business units and assess how IT downtime affects the company’s financial stability, reputation, compliance, etc. RTO/RPO show how much time it will take for business to restore the systems if a failure occurs. Analyzing the above data helps understand how much investment is needed to create a disaster-tolerant solution. We generally recommend conducting BIA to large companies which can find it difficult and costly to create a disaster-tolerant solution using in-house resources.
How are disaster recovery plans created? What is a DRP per se?
DRP is a plan of actions to be performed if disasters and accidents occur. At the preliminary stage of planning, we negotiate possible recovery scenarios with the customer, for instance, whether it will be a recovery of the entire infrastructure in a backup data center or recovery of certain components. Afterwards a set of plans for various scenarios is created covering three areas such as recovery process organization, infrastructure recovery, and information system recovery. Plans of recovery organization describe: assumed organizational and technical limitations (what conditions are needed for particular scenarios, for example, a scenario describing a failure of the entire data center or of a few systems); target audience (recovery process participants); recovery objects (source and target infrastructures during failover); RTO/RPO; identification of emergency triggers; plan implementation (logistics, arrangement of a remote connection, disaster recovery activities); testing; and plan management. Infrastructure recovery is a disaster recovery guidance for technical specialists in network, computing, and storage infrastructure. Information system recovery is a description of processes that are generally carried out by the customer alone.
How to select a proper technical solution for backup infrastructure?
Creating a backup site in the same place where the main infrastructure is located may cause complete data loss in case of power cuts or large-scale disasters. The best option is to deploy a distributed infrastructure. Different approaches are available: active-active – distributing infrastructure between two running platforms; active-passive – one platform is active, while the other, standby and activated in case of a failure; creating a remote site solely for storing app and data backups. The disaster-tolerant architecture approaches differ in price and are therefore negotiated with and approved by the customer in line with their needs. Our task is to come up with a technically suitable and most cost-effective solution.
