Posted on Wednesday August 29, 2018Although many business owners think that Virtualization and Disaster Recovery (DR) are two separate services, the former can actually be used as a legitimate solution to the latter. Here's how it works, along with some pointers to keep in mind should you choose virtualization as your disaster recovery plan.
Unlike tape backups, Virtualization restores your entire system in four hours or less by recovering your backed up servers, operating systems, and applications via the internet. This means you'll lose fewer critical files due to minimal downtime and can resume normal operations promptly.
While the speed of virtualized backups might sound alluring, there are a few key points you should be aware of before moving forward.
Besides Disaster Recovery, there are many other benefits to Virtualization. Your business can reduce the amount of servers and other hardware in your office, lower electricity expenses, spend less time maintaining on-site servers, and save money in the process. Consider Disaster Recovery as a nice bonus that's included with these benefits.
