Data Protection in the Cloud

Minimum running costs - maximum protection

Why Disaster Recovery?

Disaster scenarios can be very different. While in the past these were mainly characterized by hardware outages, threats from cyber attacks or errors in the administration of increasingly complex IT architectures are now being added. At the same time, companies rely more and more on the continuous availability of their applications. And especially in production or logistics, nothing works without ERP systems these days.

That's why it is important for companies to consider whether their own system architecture is prepared for emergencies and what an appropriate emergency plan might look like.

With a Disaster Recovery Strategy You Achieve:

More sales and production security
More customer satisfaction
More resilience for your IT

Disaster Recovery Finally Affordable

In contrast to the disaster recovery concepts of the past, today everyone can afford a disaster recovery concept. The key to this lies in the new possibilities of the public cloud. This offers the possibility of designing disasters in such a way that costs are only incurred in the event of a disaster. In normal times, on the other hand, only minimal costs are incurred for keeping data available.

Especially with SAP systems and the use of HANA databases, disaster recovery scenarios have been a very costly endeavor up to now, which many companies shied away from. With the new possibilities offered by Azure data centres, data backup in the event of a disaster is now also affordable in the public cloud. 

Disaster recovery solutions in the cloud offer enormous cost advantages, as the redundant environment is only scaled up when necessary and waits for deployment during idle periods with very low running costs.

Even for companies with an existing disaster recovery strategy, data protection in the cloud offers many advantages:

  • Greater automation
  • More transparency in the processes
  • Higher safety level
  • Decreasing total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Maintenance of the RTO (Revocery Time Objective)

We Provide the Perfect Solution for Your Disaster Recovery Scenario

Disaster recovery scenarios vary greatly depending on the individual customer requirements. For this reason, we have developed best practices for our Managed Services that represent a large part of the scenarios out of the box. They rely on proven processes and proven solutions.

Even outside the existing managed services, our operational specialists work with you to develop the perfect solution and offer you the ideal architecture depending on your security needs and budget. It is irrelevant where the primary infrastructure is located, whether in the data center, at a hoster or already with a public cloud provider.

Data Backup in Germany with our Partner Microsoft

With the new Microsoft data centers, the added value of the cloud can now also be fully exploited for disaster recovery scenarios, even with data location in Germany. Together with us as partners, Microsoft ensures that your business data in the Microsoft cloud remains confidential, is permanently protected and is stored in Germany.

If required, not only data but also the entire virtualised server infrastructure can be mirrored in the Azure public cloud, with only storage costs incurred.

In the event of a disaster recovery scenario, the entire server infrastructure can be automatically booted into the Azure Public Cloud and backups can be automatically restored to the cloud. Whether simple backup, archiving or emergency system with automatic scaling, the different concepts can be tailored to the workloads of hybrid cloud scenarios.
