News that Netgear has added ReadyRECOVER to its ReadyDATA unified storage might be of interest if you're looking for peace of mind.
Backups are one of those things that we only ever worry about after disaster strikes. Unfortunately, that's often when we fond out that our backup process has failed in some way.
We've mentioned that the 3-2-1-0 backup system is a good way to go in the past. That's at least 3 copies of your data on at least 2 different media with a copy at least 1 other location with 0 errors.
Netgear has added ReadyRECOVER to its ReadyDATA unified storage (NAS/SAN) platform. ReadyRECOVER is a backup appliance built to run exclusively with the ReadyDATA family of storage appliances. The appliance ships with ShadowProtect backup and disaster recovery software from StorageCraft.
In the past, businesses that were vigilant might have backed up their systems each night. ReadyRECOVER can create full backups of servers, desktops and laptops every 15 minutes that can be independently used to quickly and reliably restore files, folders, databases or systems to any platform, physical or virtual.
It can capture a snapshot of an entire system so that, even if a server completely fails, it can be recovered as soon as you replace the failed equipment.
The ReadyRECOVER Solution and StorageCraft ShadowProtect software runs exclusively on NETGEAR ReadyDATA storage hardware. StorageCraft ShadowProtect is licensed per machine, with protection for virtual servers (12-guest license) starting at AU$2,085 inc GST, for physical servers starting at AU$1,205 inc GST, and PC protection for AU$154 inc GST in Australia.
