ITVortex specializes in helping companies protect their technology assets and
By working closely with both your business and technology teams, ITVortex is able to craft a comprehensive plan that includes documented policies, processes and procedures – as well as backups and contingencies — that enable you to recover and ensure the business continuity of the technological infrastructure that supports your organization.
To properly recover from an outage, you must first have plans in place that dictate two major factors: Recover Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Object (RTO). The first asks: how much data can you afford to lose? The second asks: how long can you afford to be down before recovering?
As the RTO and RPO get smaller there is a converse relationship in cost. In order to protect all data every second, you will spend more than someone that wants to only protect some data every few hours
Additional factors may come into play if your organization must adhere to regulatory compliance challenges and standards such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI DSS, FISMA, or ISO. Many organizations may even be subject to fines or penalties if they are not properly protected.
Once those questions have been answered, an appropriate solution can then be designed. Solutions can involve hardware replication and/or software replication in multiple facets in order to meet the organization’s needs.
