For business that never skips a beat
Information availability isn't just an operational must-have, but a competitive edge. Whether your systems are down from a devastating natural disaster or a mundane hardware failure, you can't afford the business disruption or the loss of customer trust and your good reputation that can follow an outage.
But the reality is that the majority of organizations that orchestrate their own disaster recovery programs run into trouble and fail to meet their recovery objectives. That's because disaster recovery often takes a back seat to day-to-day administrative tasks or growth initiatives. Hybrid IT environments also create multiple potential points of failure. And, plans, policies and procedures often fail to keep pace with changes to the production environment. Further, when critical data isn't refreshed and ready for restoration, business can grind to a halt.
That's why Sungard AS supports a comprehensive lifecycle approach to systems and data recovery services, designed to protect your business from the scale and scope of any interruption.
Safeguard your data. Every successful recovery starts with a good copy of your production data. We move your data to our recovery center, where it is kept secure, refreshed according to criticality, and ready for restoration.
Recover quickly. If disaster strikes, we connect your data to your back-up infrastructure and recover your network and applications.
Manage your options. We tailor your lifecycle approach to recovery by determining which processes can be maintained in-house and which you prefer us to manage on your behalf – up to full accountability.
Fully recoverable systems and data
Unlike some disaster recovery providers who simply implement servers and leave you to get on with your own recovery, we deliver the fully recoverable production environment you need for both physical and virtual infrastructures.
By locating your systems in a Sungard AS recovery facility, you get the benefit of our experience in managing hybrid environments to provide recovery services across multiple platforms.
For mission-critical data, our replication services will deliver a fully working copy of your environment in a ready-to-use state within 4-12 hours.
For data with less urgent recovery requirements or secure longer-term retention, our back-up and vaulting services will meet your RTO and RPO goals of 24-48 hours. Data security and integrity is assured with encryption in transit and at rest, while automation reduces the risks of operator error in the back-up process.
Hand over full responsibility for your IT recovery – from people and applications to infrastructure and back-up processes. Our experts will develop a comprehensive data protection and system recovery strategy tailored to your specific RTOs and RPOs, define a program and process design, and manage and execute testing. And we'll provide on-going program and change management to ensure your environment remains fully recoverable, no matter how your business evolves.
