Next Key Features to Keep in Mind When Evaluating Backup and Restore Solutions-5 Next

Office disaster. In the rare case that a cataclysmic event like a typhoon or fire compromises a company's operation, business will be shuttered unless proper accommodations have been made to run a backup of core systems and data from an off-site location. On-site local backup, including backup appliances, is of no use in this situation, especially if an office or a building is destroyed. Any data or applications that are essential to running the business must be replicated offsite for optimal restoration.

Zetta.net, a leading enterprise-grade cloud backup and disaster recovery (DR) solutions provider, recently announced a backup and restore planning guide that identifies four primary restore requirements to keep in mind when evaluating backup and restore solutions. The guidelines provide recovery best practices for managed service providers (MSPs) to help businesses handle the everyday mishaps of data loss caused by human error and hardware failure to the least likely, worst case disaster.

"Headline-grabbing events like a hurricane is what gets companies on the war path to address disaster recovery," said Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer, Zetta.net. "But it's the everyday human errors -- mistakes such as wiping out a file system or accidentally deleting a critical file -- that are the primary culprits of lost data."

Rather than adopt a solution that only addresses one particular area of recovery, successful MSPs are increasingly aligning with offerings that cover a range of restore requirements. Zetta.net has identified four primary restore use cases and solutions.
