The current era has become a technological hub. Every business uses information technology to quickly and effectively process all sorts of data. Businesses whether small or big create and manage large volumes of electronic information or data. Employees use electronic mail and telephone systems to communicate on a daily basis. Electronic data interchange is used to transfer data including orders and payments from one company to another. Servers stores large amounts of data all year around. Desktop computers, laptops and wireless devices are used by employees to create, process, manage and communicate information. What do you do when your IT tech stops working? How do you stop your business from going into a total shutdown for hours? You follow the written protocols set in place for such emergencies. This set of protocols is known as disaster recover planning drp.
So what exactly is a disaster recovery planning?
Disaster recover planning is the process of creating a document that details the steps your business will take to recover from a catastrophic event, it defines how your company responds. Our technology disaster recovery plan provides a step by step approach on how to react to unplanned incidents that threaten your IT infrastructure, which includes hardware, software, networks and processes. Protecting your firm’s investment in its technology infrastructure and your firm’s ability to continue business.
Goals – Disaster Recovery
We develop a recovery plan. Which contains a formal policy providing the guidance necessary for developing an effective recovery. Our company carries out a business impact analysis. It helps to identify and prioritize critical IT systems and components. We also identify controls that can prevent such accidents. These measures reduce the chances of system disruptions and can increase system availability. Our IT heads develop recovery strategies, which ensure that the system can be recovered quickly and effectively after a malfunction. A team comes up with an IT contingency plan after thoroughly analyzing every aspect. The contingency plan contains step by step detailed guidance and procedures for restoring a damaged system.
Our team tests the plan which would identify any planning gaps if there are any, alongside trains the recovery personnel for plan execution; both activities are essential in improving the plan effectiveness and overall preparedness. The main purpose of any disaster recovery plan is to reduce the overall risk to the company and that is exactly what our It department does. In the unfortunate event of an inconvenience, your biggest problem is time. The plan we present is efficient and effective. It is regularly updated and rewritten as time progresses in order to keep it maintained.

Business Impact Analysis
Companies and organizations ranging from small to large sizes usually face challenges of different natures. But the most common and major challenge which is obvious in almost all the organizations is the storing of records and data. With the help of computers this issue is resolved to a greater extent and all the records are stored in digital format so that these can be accessed easily whenever required. In such a scenario where all the records of the company are stored in computer consider of some mishap which could result in the loss of entire data. The disasters could be natural as well as modern i.e. hurricane and electrical storms or viruses. Such data losses are so common and these could be rescued with the help of Data backup & recovery services.
Best Data Backup and Recovery Solution
The business may face overwhelming loss just in the downtime of the business due to the unavailability of the data. If the organization is not having their records they may not perform any daily activity due to server shutdown. Consider the situations where the company is a law firm and they have recorded their case files in the computer and the data is accidentally corrupted then the firm may encounter an irreparable damage to not only the current cases but also to the records and files which are the outcome of years efforts. Such scenarios are frequent in daily routine and can cause frustration. To overcome the difficulty of the management, Absolute Solutions offer state of the art Data backup & recovery solutions.
Data Backup & Recovery Services
There are multiple options available as per the requirements of the organization.

Set up PPR infrastructure in a few minutes
Definition and appliance of backup policies
Agentless backup of guests Significantly enhances backup performance, while minimizing the load on target machines and the hypervisor during the process. PPR enables to back up entirely any online or offline virtual machine hosted by vSphere (Windows, Linux, etc.) Agentless replication of guests Replication provides the best RTO, as it utilizes clones (replicas) of target machines on a certain ESX datastore Agent-based backup of fault-tolerant systems and non-commersial ESX Since agentless protection through the VMware snapshot mechanism is unavailable for VMware fault-tolerant systems and guests hosted by a non-commersial ESX, PPR enables to protect them through on-site agents Replica launch The specified replica will be correctly detached from the replication process and then launched, which may take only a couple of seconds, allowing PPR Admin to get a failed system back on track with minimal downtime Restore to original/new location When restored to the original location, the original machine will be automatically deleted. When restored to a new location Administrator will be prompted to provide a new name for the machine, and a host and datastore to reside it. The VM configuration file will be modified accordingly VMware CBT support The use of VMware Changed Block Tracking ensures full or incremental backups or replicas are created with the minimum time and impact on ESX Paragon ITE support Paragon’s Image Transfer Engine is an alternative way of tracking data changes. It’s automatically used when VMware CBT fails
Agentless backup of guests PPR backs up any online or offline virtual machine hosted by Windows Hyper-V Server 2012 (Windows, Linux, etc.) Agent-based backup of Hyper-V host PPR can protect Hyper-V hosts in their entirely or by individual volumes, through an embedded physical agent Restore VMs to original/new location When restored to the original location, the original virtual machine will be automatically deleted. When restored to a new location, the Administrator will be prompted to provide a new name for the virtual machine, as well as a host and datastore to associate with it. The VM configuration file will be modified accordingly Paragon ITE support Paragon’s Image Transfer Engine is used to track data changes, ensuring full or incremental backups are created fast, with minimum impact on the Hyper-V host
Agent-based physical backup A special agent embedded to every target Windows-based physical machine interacts with the infrastructure and accomplishes backup tasks Entire machines backup Protection of entire machines guarantees complete data safety Granular backup Protection of particular volumes allows minimization of backup windows and storage requirements One-Stop-Wizard for immediate protection One-Stop-Wizard helps to instantly configure and initiate protection of a single physical server or workstation Out of domain backup PPR enables to protect not only members of a domain where it is deployed, but any machine on the net Remote restore Administrator can initiate recovery of data (non-system) volumes remotely from one of the management consoles Bare-metal recovery The problem machine is started up from a special WinPE recovery media. After connection to the infrastructure, Administrator manually specifies the desired machine, volume, and restore point Paragon Recovery-ID Automatically and remotely perform a restore operation without local user-interaction Restore to dissimilar hardware Allows Administrator to restore a Windows-based machine directly to dissimilar hardware without having to reinstall OS, applications, and re-configure the system
Application-level protection PPR can treat MS Exchange 2007/2010/2013 at the application level, opening up the option to create consistent database backups without any impact on the production email server Incremental chains and block-level data deduplication Usage of incremental backups allows additional flexibility by having different time-stamps while block-level delta for full backups contributes to minimization of backup storage requirements Single instant block backup Even when creating a full backup, PPR analyzes and transfers only blocks of databases which have been changed since the last backup, thus providing for the server load optimization and backup storage minimization Automated recovery from broken increments When MS Exchange refuses to allow creating an incremental backup, PPR automatically initiates a full backup Wide restore options at database level PPR enables to restore separate data stores or storage groups or all groups at once either to the original or some alternative location with the option to create a dialtone database if necessary Flexible restore at mailbox level PPR also allows non-destructive restore of certain mailboxes. By default, their contents will be restored to the original location, provided none of the already existed email items are lost. If necessary, Administrator can specify any mailbox and a folder where you’d like the restored data to be placed to Exchange replicas and cluster configurations support PPR completely supports DAG (Database Availability Group), SCC (Single Copy Cluster), LCR (Local Continuous Replication), CCR (Cluster Continuous Replication), SCR (Standby Continuous Replication), SIOS (Single Instance Object Storage), and High Availability and Site Resilience Close integration with PEGR If using PPR together with PEGR, Administrator can easily connect a backup email database to MS Outlook to view and extract certain emails
Supported storage ties PPR enables to store backup data on ESX datastores, local disks, UNC (network shares), NAS, SAN, FTP/SFTP, cloud (Amazon S3) Multi-tier storage infrastructure PPR has a solid solution to the problem of dual protection. Dual backup or replication to managed (fully controlled by PPR infrastructure) storages or archiving of backup data from managed to unmanaged storages (like Tape or FTP/SFTP that PPR infrastructure cannot control) enables to double protect target systems with minimal impact on the production environment Enhanced backup format Paragon introduces a pVHD (Paragon Virtual Hard Drive) format – a special VHD, optimized for storing backups of virtual and physical machines. It’s very efficient in handling incremental chains, data de-duplication and synchronization. pVHD does away with all limitations of a standard virtual drive format, such as a poor compression ratio, integrity control, and encryption capabilities. As a result it allows obtaining backups that are up to four times smaller than original backup objects Backup data deduplication Significantly reduces backup storage footprint. By linking existing local and network backup storages to a local deduplication storage, Administrator can make sure storages do not contain data duplicates, thus significantly cutting on storage requirements. Besides, deduplication enables to cut even more on network traffic, as again only unique blocks of data are transferred to storages, thus having a positive effect on backup timings, RTOs and RPOs of company’s IT infrastructure Flexible scheduling mechanism Protection policies can be scheduled from every few minutes (nCDP – near Contonuous Data Protection) to hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly Enhanced data retention mechanism Enables to effectively control backup lifespan and occupied space on storages Backup data exclude/include filters Allow speeding up backup process, while minimizing storage requirements File-level recovery PPR allows browsing contents of virtual or physical backup images as well as VM replicas to do granular recovery of separate files and/or folders. Required data can be restored either locally (on a machine where PPR Console is installed) or to a network share, provided the original directory structure is kept intact if necessary Instant restore Instant restore (launch out of backup image) is available through NFS (Network File System) or UIM (Paragon’s Universal Image Mounter) Storage Browser For easier administration all storages are open for browsing. Having a list of all created backups and replicas at hand, Administrator can easily find and initiate an integrity checkup for those he considers critical, or delete those he doesn’t need any more, or initiate restore Microsoft VSS support The use of Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy Service allows 100% data consistency when taking snapshots of Windows machines Paragon UFSD support Paragon’s Universal File System Driver provides fast and reliable access to major file systems
Migration between ESX datastores Enables to migrate a virtual machine hosted by ESX to another datastore P2P (Physical-to-Physical) migration No hardware dependency with Paragon Adaptive Restore™; our technology guarantees that any Windows since 2000 will boot on dissimilar hardware by automatically injecting required drivers and performing other operations crucial for this type of migration V2P (Virtual-to-Physical) migration Combination of the agent-based backup and Paragon’s Adaptive Restore allows easily converting virtual machines to physical V2V (Virtual-to-Virtual) migration PPR provides the option to migrate virtual servers and workstations from VMware ESX to Hyper-V and vice versa with minimal effort
Distributed architecture Offers scalability for growing environments and medium to large departmentalized enterprises PPR management console Centralized, easy-to-use interface to manage all virtual and physical machines from the same console Realtime statistics, notifications, and reporting PPR includes smart tools of monitoring. PPR Console can help to get real-time statistics on any activity executed at the moment, filter error, warning or information infrastructure events, set up email notifications and reports by a particular type of events or several types (errors, warnings, information, etc.) for an infrastructure component or activity you’re interested in (backup or replica policies, etc.) Effective troubleshooting Every user or service activity is journalized, which enables to pin-point roots of any encountered problem. For more efficient communication with Paragon’s support team, there’s Log Saver that allows easily collecting all or particular infrastructure logs Easy update / upgrade All infrastructure components can be upgraded remotely from PPR Console, guaranteeing complete consistency of the infrastructure database Intelligent load balancing Unlike other tools that use simple round-robin algorithms to balance load across the backup infrastructure, our solution considers Backup Server’s availability, access to source data, current backup repository load by other concurrent tasks, and other factors Traffic throttling Allows managing network bandwidth among clients to ensure QoS (Quality of Service) Paragon ProTran Paragon’s ProTran is a unique data transport protocol, specially optimized to run jobs over highly latent connections by automatically establishing multiple TCP/IP connections per job, which enables to significantly (up to 300%) boost performance of VM data transferring over WAN links
