Top 3 Ways LogicEra Ensures your Disaster Recovery Strategy is On Point
If you are still in doubt whether you need a data backup and disaster recovery strategy or not, the answer is simple. Yes! You do need a data backup and disaster recovery strategy in place. Your security systems could be extremely advanced, all your files could be encrypted, and your storage space could be highly secure. Still! Your data could be at risk at some point.
Forget about a natural disaster, a hacker, or a virus attack. Even a human or a machine error can put your data at risk. And! You very well know they happen. Right? Your data is crucial for your enterprise, and that you should do all you can to protect it. LogicEra works with you to put together a smart data backup and disaster recovery plan. Here are a few ways how the Managed Services Provider (MSP) ensures that your disaster recovery strategy is on point.
#1: Creates a disaster recovery plan and tests it regularly
The first and foremost thing LogicEra does is create a disaster recovery (DR) plan. However, the planning phase does not end here. LogicEra only considers the plan after it is fully tested. A few things the MSP considers while formulating the DR plan are:
- Evaluating the Business impact of application failures.
- Picking a cross-region recovery architecture for your enterprise’s mission-critical applications.
- Documenting the process mainly the manual steps if any.
- Automating the process as much as possible.
- Establishing a backup strategy for all transactional and reference data, and frequently testing the backup restoration.
- Performing frequent disaster simulations for validating and improving the plan.
#2: Conducts operational readiness testing
An operational readiness testing must be performed for failover to the secondary region as well as for failback to the primary region. This is what LogicEra does. The MSP simulates an outage by removing or shutting down the cloud services. It also tests the automated operational responses regularly as part of the normal application lifecycle for ensuring operational effectiveness.
#3: Conducts failover and failback testing
LogicEra performs failover and failback testing for substantiating that the application’s dependent services of its clients come back up in a synchronized manner during the disaster recovery. Alterations to systems & operations might impact failover and failback functions, which may not be detected until there is a failure in the main system or that becomes overloaded. Testing failover capabilities before you need those will pay off for a live problem. One more thing that the MSP ensures is that the dependent services failover and failback are in the correct order.
You never know when a hurricane, an earthquake, or any other natural catastrophe may hit your IT infrastructure derailing it temporarily and costing you a fortune. However, prioritizing the data backup and disaster recovery will help you prevent long-lasting interruptions in your business after the disaster. LogicEra does it top of mind and takes a programmatic approach to disaster recovery to minimize disruption to your business continuity.
LogicEra identifies the data that needs to be backed up and the way it should be backed up. Later, the MSP figures out the response processes, tools & technicians that are required for implementing a successful DR plan and keeping your business safe. These are the top reasons why LogicEra is among the top cloud migration companies and the trusted partners of UAE cloud service providers. The best part is the MSP also provides supplemental support for database migration services. Click here to get yourself a free proof of concept (POC).
