Backup and Disaster Recovery Services

Backup and disaster recovery services

The difference between backups and disaster recovery comes down to breadth. Backups or backing up refers to the actual copies or copying of files and data. Disaster recovery (DR), on the other hand, encompasses the full strategy for responding to a disaster event and putting the backups into action. ITAF will guide through the process of backup, prevention and recovering data.

Cloud backup

Software as a service backup

Cloud backup is where data in the cloud is backed up to another cloud, rather than to an on-site method such as tape or disk backup. It is also sometimes known as SaaS (software as a service) backup. It adds an extra layer of protection for businesses using cloud services by quite simply keeping a duplicate copy in a separate cloud.

How Cloud backup helps businesses?

Like on-site backup methods, Cloud backup benefits businesses by storing data in multiple locations, enabling easy restoration of data in case of a cyber attack, accidental deletion, data corruption or other incidents. Major advantages are:

• Cost efficiency – there is no investment required in on-site backup infrastructures
• Availability – Backup copies of data in the cloud can be accessed from anywhere, so IT teams don’t have to come to a physical location to restore business data if anything goes wrong.
• Resilience to cyber attacks – Should an employee accidentally click on a malicious email attachment and open the business up to a ransomware attack, backup data on a cloud generally won’t be affected as it isn’t on the office network.

IT DRP (Disaster Recovery Plan)

Recover and protect a business IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster

A disaster recovery plan (DRP) is a documented process or set of procedures to execute an organization’s disaster recovery processes and recover and protect a business IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster. It is “a comprehensive statement of consistent actions to be taken before, during and after a disaster.
