We work with IT and business users to look at the business impact of their choices of RTO (recovery time objective) and RPO (recovery point objective).
We translate business requirements into IT service levels and help assess the type of data replication and back-up needed for each application.
We define tiers of applications based on RPO/RTO service levels and help map DR architecture options to each tier.
Quick Intelligence supports public and private cloud options.
We can tailor different cloud replication and back-up technologies to your needs, including virtual machine replication, disk replication and database replication.
Our subject matter experts will implement the replication environment, test it and set up monitoring instrumentation to ensure that replication keeps running.
We’ll also map out the emergency DR environment and test it to ensure that it’s ready for you when you need it.
Once the replication services are in production, Quick Intelligence’s network operations center continuously monitors the health of the system.
Our ticketing system captures any changes to your production environment over and above those that are automatically captured by data replication. These changes are applied to the DR environment (e.g. addition virtual machines) and the recovery environment.
During the initial DRaaS workshop, we decide on the frequency of DR testing (quarterly, semi-annually or annually).
We’ll do the first DR test to ensure that all data is being captured, the emergency DR environment can handle your production needs, and that your RPO/RTO service levels can be met for each application tier.
We ensure that you can switch back to your production environment and capture any data changes made in the emergency DR environment.
After each DR test, review results with your team and make any necessary adjustments to the replication environment and the emergency DR environment.
