We have updated our cloud platform, thus improving its Disaster Recovery solution. It is designed to protect customers against unexpected failures of the primary infrastructure and is automatically included in our cloud hosting service.
We decided to place backup disk arrays in the same location, but in another part of the data center, with respect to the shortest recovery time possible. Data recovery in case of a fatal failure of the primary infrastructure will be even faster than before. With this step, we moved the Disaster Recovery solution further from separate backup servers to the replication of the entire disk array.
For customers who would like to use data replication to a secondary location, we offer the Site Recovery service. In addition to replication, it also includes extra capacity in the backup infrastructure which we keep in the other location. Data replication within one location protects all cloud customers in the event of an unexpected accident, but does not replace backup which still needs to be done independently.
