    Cloud disaster recovery

    Sungard AS’s cloud disaster recovery (DR) goes beyond technology by offering all-inclusive, fully managed DR solutions to support the always-on demands of your business.

    The importance of cloud recovery 

    In the cloud computing era, cloud disaster recovery is a critical safeguard against disruptions to your cloud services caused by infrastructure failures and outages — whether by power outages, network outages, or even nefarious sources such as cyberattacks. 

    Backup and recovery in cloud computing must be robust, reliable and ready to recover operations quickly in order to get your business productivity back up to speed. Having a plan in place, and ensuring your business applies cloud disaster recovery best practices, reduces disruption and limits any potential loss. 

    The keys to an effective cloud disaster recovery process

    The need for effective recovery services will only increase with the growing prevalence of cloud computing. As more business services are delivered via the cloud, a rapid return of access to data, files, systems and services when a disaster occurs must become a standard for all cloud-dependent businesses to consider.

    The key to an effective cloud disaster recovery process is having a well thought-out plan in place, including a regular schedule agreed with your supplier and well-informed team members who know their roles in the process.

    It is also vital to have a cloud recovery service in place that can offer best practice on data governance requirements, deliver on SLAs, and have the availability to effect an immediate recovery.

    The resource investment in your cloud disaster recovery plan needs to align with your true failover costs — the average cost of downtime is $67,000 per critical and $61,000 per non-critical workload*.

    Our Sungard AS cloud recovery for AWS provides your business with the ability to recover operating systems, replicate critical business data, and implement data protection storage management and automated recovery of protected workloads. This will safeguard your business and ensure your cloud-based recovery keeps overall disruption to a minimum.
