Downtime caused by unexpected outages, disasters or even cyber attacks can cost your organisation a huge amount of time, cost and resources. In fact, the average cost of downtime is estimated to be up to USD $84,650 per hour, with an average of 79 minutes downtime for an outage. This brings new meaning to the aphorism “time is money”, as IT teams would find themselves in a race against time to bring systems and valuable data back up and running again.
It isn’t just the direct impact on costs. Downtime, and especially when data loss is involved, could potentially cause loss of customer and employee confidence, damage to brand integrity, legal consequences and more!
That is why it is important for organisations to have modern data protection measures in place to ensure that in the event of any disruption or downtime, the business can still continue. With a robust backup in place, companies can guarantee that their data is well-protected and accessible if ever the original copy is compromised.
However, while businesses often do have a backup, they often overlook the importance of reliable and timely recovery. After all, what’s the use of having all your backup data sitting safely somewhere if it takes ages to bring it back. Again, every second counts when you need to bring your systems and data back to their normal state.
This is why instant recovery takes a crucial role in modern data protection.
With instant recovery, organisations no longer need to worry about the typically nerve-wracking time it takes to recover data. In case of data failure or disaster, it gives you the ability to instantaneously roll back to the last good copy of your data.
As such, instant recovery is a game-changer – it’s akin to gaining the ability to turn back time to save you from data loss. And with the new iteration of Backup & Replication v11, Veeam has taken it to another level. In this latest offering from Veeam, instant recovery now expands to previously unattainable use cases, including SQL Server and Oracle Databases, NAS File Shares and any backup to Hyper-V.
