Types of Business Continuity and FeaturesComponentsAttributes

  • Cloud-to-Cloud Backup and Recovery
    While Office 365 is a great option for companies wanting highly scalable and redundant architectures to mitigate natural and mechanical failures, there are inherent risks associated with cloud-hosted data. Human-caused data loss – be it intentional or accidental – still exists as data can still be permanently deleted from cloud applications.Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup for Microsoft Office 365 protects Exchange Online mailboxes, SharePoint Online, as well as OneDrive for Business files and folders ensuring recovery in the event of accidental or malicious deletion.
  • Comprehensive Email Threat Protection
    Today’s IT professionals need an easy-to-manage email security solution that protects against phishing, malware, and ransomware. Along with multi-layer email security, our Comprehensive Email Protection solution provides email continuity and data loss prevention.Advanced Threat Protection is also included with Barracuda’s Email Security Service, which sandboxes suspicious email attachments and scans them for malware. Link protection redirects suspicious and typosquatted URLs so malware is never inadvertently downloaded by recipients.
  • Archiving for Compliance
    Barracuda Cloud Email Archiving Service integrates with Office 365 to create a cloud based, indexed archive allowing granular retention policies, extensive search, auditing/permissions, legal hold, and export helping to facilitate eDiscovery and retention.Litigation holds preserve email from being tampered with until the litigation hold expires or is removed. Native and mobile apps provide intuitive interfaces that simplify search to ensure messages are found easily even when email services are unavailable.

Azure Backup is a backup-as-a-service solution that is both simple and cost-effective that extends tried-and-trusted tools on-premises with powerful tools in the cloud. Azure ensures all customers’ data is protected no matter where it exists: in remote and branch offices, in the enterprise data centre, or in the public cloud. Utilising a seamless portal experience, Azure Backup resides with Azure Site Recovery, offering minimal maintenance and cost-efficiency, consistent tools for offsite backups and operational recovery, and unified application availability and data protection.

  • Centralised management
    Monitor, operate, govern and optimise data protection at scale in a unified and consistent manner using Back up Centre.
  • Application consistency
    Back up and restore data from virtual machines with application consistency in Windows using Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and in Linux with pre- and post- processing scripts.
  • Multiple-workload support
    Back up Azure Virtual Machines, on-premises servers, SQL Server and SAP HANA on Azure Virtual Machines, Azure Files, and Azure Database for PostgreSQL.
  • Durable storage options
    Store backups in locally redundant storage (LRS), geo-redundant storage (GRS), and zone-redundant storage (ZRS).

Help your business to keep doing business—even during major IT outages. Azure Site Recovery offers ease of deployment, cost effectiveness, and dependability. Deploy replication, failover, and recovery processes through Site Recovery to help keep your applications running during planned and unplanned outages.

  • Simple to deploy and manage
    Set up Azure Site Recovery simply by replicating an Azure VM to a different Azure region directly from the Azure portal. As a fully integrated offering, Site Recovery is automatically updated with new Azure features as they’re released. Minimise recovery issues by sequencing the order of multi-tier applications running on multiple virtual machines. Ensure compliance by testing your disaster recovery plan without impacting production workloads or end users. And keep applications available during outages with automatic recovery from on-premises to Azure or Azure to another Azure region.
  • Reduce infrastructure costs
    Reduce the cost of deploying, monitoring, patching and maintaining on-premises disaster recovery infrastructure by eliminating the need for building or maintaining a costly secondary datacentre. Plus, you pay only for the computing resources you need to support your applications in Azure.
  • Minimise downtime with dependable recovery
    Easily comply with industry regulations such as ISO 27001 by enabling Site Recovery between separate Azure regions. Scale coverage to as many business-critical applications as you need, backed by Azure’s service availability and support. Restore your most recent data quickly with Site Recovery.

Organizations need complete confidence that their entire IT environment—whether it’s Windows or Linux, virtual or physical—is fully protected and can be reliably recovered in minutes. Since you never know what resources will be available to you in a disaster, the flexibility to be able to recover anywhere, anytime, every single time is unquestionably vital.

Get back to business in minutes when disaster strikes by spinning up your organisation's system in a cloud disaster recovery (DR) environment and restoring it anywhere, ensuring immediate data availability. Make disaster recovery painless and increase efficiency with orchestration runbooks and automatic failover.

  • Disaster recovery for physical and virtual workloads
    Minimize downtime by enabling easy, scalable and efficient cloud-based recovery of all popular workloads including Windows and Linux physical servers and VMs, major hypervisors and Microsoft apps.
  • Production failover
    Ensure quick and easy automated failover of your production environment to an offsite server running in Disaster Recovery Storage or to a hot storage location in the cloud.
  • Site-to-site VPN connection
    Enable a secure VPN connection between the local site and the cloud site to facilitate partial failover of tightly dependent servers on the local site. When one of the servers is recreated on the cloud site, the servers continue to communicate, ensuring minimal downtime.
  • Near-instant RPOs and RTOs
    Achieve both RPOs and RTOs of less than 15 minutes. The RunVM engine enables best-in-class production and test failover speed, while flexible backup frequency policies lead to tighter RPOs.
  • Point-in-time recovery
    Prevent data loss and avoid data corruption with granularity of control over data protection and recovery capabilities. Restore systems and data to any recoverable point in the past, instead of to the latest one.
  • IPsec multisite VPN support
    Strengthen security with IPSec multisite VPN support that integrates secure protocols and algorithms, so we can easily support multiple sites that are hosting critical data, systems and applications with higher requirements for security, compliance and bandwidth.
