3 Content Introduction: Getting Backup Up to Speed Business on the Brink The Backup Trap A Single, Simple Solution Your Business Fit for

4 Introduction: Getting Backup Up to Speed Smooth-running companies need smooth-running IT. Data, applications, systems they re the bedrock of good business and maintaining their integrity, security and availability is vital to business continuity, operational efficiency, staff morale, competitive edge and customer satisfaction. But it s surprising just how many organisations: Do not backup data, applications and systems to insure against loss or downtime; or Think they re protected, when they are not adequately protected at all; or Rely on unnecessarily costly, complicated and often chaotic backup and recovery solutions. FACTS FOR THOUGHT % of SMBs' customers have switched vendors due to an unreliable computing system But... 52% of SMBs lack a disaster preparedness plan. Above all, many backup and recovery strategies are not keeping pace with rampant data growth and increasing migration from physical to virtual IT environments, leaving businesses at risk and in-house IT staff and budgets stretched to breaking point. And while the goals may seem obvious cut the risks to your business, cut the complexity of backup and recovery and cut unnecessary costs the route to achieving all three simultaneously may seem much less clear. This White Paper outlines an on-premise solution that can ensure your business gets its backup and disaster recovery strategy up to speed efficiently, effectively and affordably. Business on the Brink Think of all the reasons why data, applications and systems that your business relies on might be put beyond use. The following are just small sample from a disturbingly long list: Viruses and other forms of cyber-attack. Effects of severe weather and natural disasters. Hardware crashes. Employee error (e.g. data overwritten). Power outages. Even a minor hiatus in availability can be costly in operational, financial and reputational terms. So the big question is, can you insure your business against the unacceptable disruption that incidents like these can lead to? FACTS FOR THOUGHT IT downtime costs SMBs, on average, around AU$14k per day And. 51% of SMB customers say their vendors have temporarily shut down due to an IT disaster. Making copies to tapes, disks or virtual servers, for instance and using these to restore everything that has been lost may seem the obvious solution. But consider these two initial questions: 1. Is it easy and affordable to backup everything using conventional methods? No, it is not. 2 with unstructured data (i.e. not held in databases) accounting for most of this growth creating crushing pressure on businesses IT resources. 1- Facts for Thought statistics taken from Symantec s 2011 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey Report (https://scm.symantec.com/2011-preparedness-survey/en/?mt=symccombanner&loc=sg) 2- E.g. 1

5 2. Is it possible to be selective about what you backup? Again, no. It s not just a question of ensuring you have a fall-back if business-critical data, applications and systems go down. Legislation and regulation (e.g. on e-discovery and data protection) have continued to raise the bar not just in terms of how much is backed up but how securely it s backed up too. In an age of 24/7 operations, business continuity and regulatory compliance require comprehensive, secure backup of data, applications and systems, minimisation of backup windows and instant recovery of backed-up material as and when disaster strikes. Backup failure can leave your business on the brink of both short and long-term damage. The Backup Trap When framing and implementing a backup and disaster recovery strategy, there are three classic, interlinked traps that many businesses fall into ineffectiveness, excessive complexity and runaway costs: Ineffectiveness FACTS FOR THOUGHT Only 21% of SMBs perform a daily backup And. Many backup practices simply are not up to safeguarding businesses from potentially catastrophic losses. For instance: 45% of SMBs would lose at least 40% of their data in the event of a They may be applied inconsistently or irregularly, or not fully meet the needs of disaster. both physical and virtual IT environments. Traditional backup media (tapes, disks) may not be stored safely, compounding their inherent inability to ensure seamless business continuity if a disaster happens. As well as soaking up precious bandwidth, data sent via networks (e.g. as part of deduping procedures) may not be secure and tamper-proof while in transit and/or at rest. And here s another killer fact: only around 20% of backup jobs actually succeed, 3 whether due to the limitations of the technologies relied on or lack of staff resources to manage the processes effectively. Excessive complexity: Many businesses choose to supplement traditional backup options with additional bolt-on quick-fixes, such as deduping, snapshot recovery, backup for virtual machines and so on. But such piecemeal, incremental approaches can have big downsides. For example: Fragmented solutions (often provided by multiple vendors) may be incompatible or fail to lock together seamlessly. Failure to keep all elements up-to-date can result in old backups no longer being retrievable due to changes in software, hardware and IT infrastructure in general. While virtualisation of data, applications and systems can make backup and disaster recovery easier in some respects, it also adds another layer of complexity to manage as physical and virtual environments interlock and a decreasing number of physical resources act as a bottleneck for data flowing out to and in from virtual servers 3- 2

6 Additionally, the need to factor-in mobile workers and remote offices only adds to the headache. Runaway costs: One consequence of complexity is higher IT management costs. In terms of capex, opex and staff costs and in a business climate where more has to be achieved with less the more fragmented and complex your business s backup culture and procedures, the harder it is to keep costs rationalised. Overall, cost calculations need to take into account: The ramifications of the data explosion in terms of time and effort involved in managing backups and recovery. The cost of building, retaining or buying-in the expertise needed to implement and update backup and disaster recovery strategies. The potential cost of mistakes, ranging from the need to re-enter lost data that hasn t been adequately backed up to the scope for lost business due to a backup lapse or sluggish disaster recovery. All of which boils down to a question of productivity and profitability, not just within your IT team but across your whole business A Single, Simple Solution Backup and disaster recovery pose countless challenges. But there s one solution to all of them a solution that s: Secure and reliable. Comprehensive and all-inclusive. Simple to set up and easy to use. Affordable, with completely predictable costs. Automated yet customisable. FACTS FOR THOUGHT SMBs experience an average of five IT outages per year. But. Only 28% of those with a disaster recovery plan have tested it.
