Protecting databases and application data from disk failures, corruption, and other risks has become increasingly important yet increasingly difficult. It doesn’t have to be difficult, though. Disasters and accidents will always pose a risk to your data. To be able to meet service-level agreements and rapidly recover your data, you need a robust data protection strategy that combines high availability with backup, compliance and disaster recovery.

 


It’s best to get all of these options in one single integrated storage infrastructure. Here are 4 benefits you’ll find. 

1. Better Backup and Restore

With an integrated solution in place, you receive capacity-efficient snapshot copies, which requires only a fraction of the disk space of a full copy. Therefore, you get backup and restore that happens in a matter of minutes, saving you valuable time and operational expenses.

2. Simplicity

It’s possible to get more control and simplify the way you deploy and manage backup and recovery. Reliant can discuss with you your options to obtain snapshot copies and replication for multiple SQL server instances. 

3. Disaster Recovery

The right combination of software and hardware can get you a fantastic disaster recovery (DR) solution at only a fraction of the cost. By using one provider and one storage solution, you eliminate a lot of the complexity and cost involved in setting up your DR site.

4. Business Intelligence and Development

By offering simplicity, speed and lower costs, integrated storage solutions will allow you to be forward thinking within your department and get you to the point where you’re able to run your storage without having to constantly maintain it. This will allow you to focus your energies and budget on new projects.
