Designed for backup of on-premises systems and data, Cristie Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service is deployed using a hybrid model. Appliances are installed at each client site and configured with replication to the cloud, to provide protection in the event of a local site disaster.
Without dependence on external WAN links on-premises appliances provide fast backup and recovery. This means should WAN links fail, business systems are still protected and recoverable locally.
On-premises appliances store backup data in a compressed and deduplicated format for 14 days. Efficient and compressed replication of backups to the cloud keeps WAN bandwidth requirements to a minimum.
Virtual clones of production servers can be created on standby production infrastructure in the Cristie Cloud. Standby clones can be started in minutes, keeping downtime to a minimum in the event of a site or system disaster.
Office 365 data (Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business) can be backed up directly to the Cristie Cloud.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is available as a separate or as an additional add-on to Cristie Cloud Backup. Cristie Data provides a dedicated IaaS environment in the cloud for Disaster Recovery. This sits alongside the proposed Cristie Cloud backup repository, in a secure ISO accredited datacentre.
Standby VMs are created from backups of production servers, on the provisioned DR infrastructure, in our cloud data centre. When backup data is replicated from the customer site to the data centre, the standby VMs are immediately updated with the changes.
Standby VMs sit in a warm state, ready to be powered on in the event of failure at the primary site. VMs can be brought online in minutes, then steps taken to provide users with remote access.
“If we lost a pupil’s coursework that could have an impact on the rest of their lives so it’s critical that we have a backup solution that’s dependable, reliable and we know works well. Cristie has offered us a scalable solution that we can use within the cloud to meet the needs of our business and protect our students’ data.”
“It’s a risk averse investment which is always good for accountants. I equate our data protection challenge to climbing Everest and I’d say with Cristie Data’s help we’re pretty close to the summit.”
“We just could not have done this in-house. It would have been very expensive and too time consuming.”
“Cristie Data have become a valued partner, providing a great backup solution. I never find myself wondering if our backups are ok. If we experience a software, virus, corruption, bad-update issue; recovery is very swift from the local appliance.”
