Disaster recovery is a requirement if your business cannot operate without its IT systems.
Focus Networks offer a complete backup and recovery solution. A server placed at your office completes hourly, daily, weekly and monthly backups. Daily backups are securely replicated offsite onto a different server at another geographical location.
Fast recovery times with service level agreements are guaranteed.
Focus Networks recommend we implement an IT Disaster Recovery Plan alongside this service. A sample IT Disaster Recovery Plan can be viewed here.
ONSITE SERVER BACKUPS
Client nominated server data is backed up hourly onto an onsite MRS server and is retained for a maximum of six months.
OFFSITE SERVER BACKUPS
Client nominated server data is securely transferred off premise onto an offsite MRS server and is retained for a maximum of six months.
Both the onsite MRS server and offsite MRS server will maintain a combination of hourly, daily, weekly and monthly backups for six months, at which point they are archived to tape.
In the event that corporate data requires restoring, the onsite MRS server will be used to recover corporate data locally. This is a process that can be completed remotely by Focus Networks or onsite by the client.
In the event of a disaster, the offsite MRS server will be used to recover the clients’ servers onto loan hardware. This is a process that is completed at the Focus Networks premises.
Twice a year a backup of the clients’ servers will be written onto tape media which is of archive quality. This tape media is stored in a fire proof safe for 7 years.
WEEKLY BOOT TEST
Once a week the clients' servers will be spun up to prove functionality and then signed off.
SERVER RECOVERY TESTING
Once a year, the client will be invited onto Focus Networks premises to undertake a disaster recovery simulation. The client will log onto their restored servers and sign off on the exercise. The restored servers will then be wiped using military grade tools.
