Data Backup Replication

pdfIkonaIT Service Description

Upon its creation in your environment, a backup copy is automatically replicated to an ESKOM centre. The replication is realised with a cipher channel and with the preservation of deduplication mechanisms ensuring minimal WAN link consumption.

Service Components

•    Backup replication system administration
•    Data backup copy administration
•    Data recovery at the client’s request
•    Monitoring of data backup replication system
•    Periodical validation of replication job execution
•    Possibility of launching the client’s system in the ESKOM environment in case of permanent failure in the client’s centre

Benefits for the Client

Backup replication virtually eliminates the risk of permanent loss of production system data, your backup copy and the copy in the ESKOM centre.
The clients adopting our solutions do not have to rely on an employee operating a tape library anymore, which often included carrying tapes from a server room to an insolated place. Moreover, the ESKOM solutions deal with the problem of building an expensive backup environment. Additionally, despite great efficiency of backup processes, it is the replication that is a priority. Modern backup copy systems offer quick access to backup copies and the possibility of instant data recovery.
