How Brisbane’s Serenity IT provides backup and DR
CATEGORY: IT SOLUTION
Who are your backup and disaster recovery vendors?
We specialise in native backup in the Simplivity hyperconverged ecosystem and Veeam for any other solution.
When did your company first get involved in this area?
We have been involved in backup and disaster recovery since the inception of our business seven years ago, because we believe it must be considered in all solutions we provide.
What are your credentials in this area?
We have relevant Simplivity and Veeam sales and technical certifications, as well as ITIL certifications relating to business continuity.
Who are your main distributors?
Simplivity is provided by Distribution Central with Veeam being sourced via Ingram Micro.
Heard about any cool developments recently?
Veeam is a great standard we have used successfully for years. However, the sheer speed of disaster-related operations in Simplivity can be breathtaking. Imagine recovery point objectives of as few as 10 minutes and recovery times of seconds locally or minutes remotely.
Can you tell us about a recent deployment you have done?
Every Simplivity deployment has backup and disaster recovery as a core function. We had three clients deploy in 2015, two of which have a remote node as part of the solution. A fourth install took place in June. The remote nodes are in colocation data centres and have the ability to bring up virtual machines from restored data.
What’s driving customers’ backup and DR projects?
Our primary vertical is private education. As in most verticals, risk is the major motivating factor for backup and disaster recovery. More of our clients are undertaking a full risk assessment that highlights the need for backup and recovery. Service availability is the other major motivator that sees most of our clients deploying multiple on campus data centres.
Backup and disaster recovery is…?
Enabling a business to continue operating even under adverse conditions.
