Database Recovery as a Service
Database Recovery as a Service or DBRaaS is a simple and cost-effective DR solution that integrates with your existing on premise database implementations and provides a corresponding in-Cloud failover database. Protect your most important asset – your data. Replicate the database into an enterprise class, Cloud based data centre while being sensitive to regional regulatory requirements – UK or international. DBRaaS offers minimal maintenance and cost efficiency while delivering security and peace of mind.
Automating your database disaster recovery plan…
Availability of your Point of Sale (PoS) and consolidated sales figures
The Point of Sale capability of any retailer, be that a physical till or an e-commerce website, is arguably the single most important system.
Short of recommissioning shoe boxes to take cash, the loss of the PoS system is probably the single most catastrophic event a retailer faces. Loss of PoS equals immediate loss of revenue.
Availability of your stock management and fulfilment systems
Assuming you’re taking transactions, loss of your stock management system (SMS) can wreak havoc.
Stock levels on the shelves can soon become depleted without the SMS knowing. This means no JIT stock replacements being shipped. Empty shelves, means loss of revenue.
Equally, if your website is making sales and your SMS is not responding to stock requests, you can end up over selling against stock you don’t have.
These scenarios can lead to customer dissatisfaction.
Availability of your Business Intelligence systems
In today’s world of near real time information feeds, most high street and web based retailers are tracking their performance minute by minute, always trying to tune their offering to maximise revenues.
From understanding immediate flash sales figures to factoring in foot fall statistics or weather conditions, or seasonal sales trends, or the impact of major news events such as Brexit, retailers are continuously looking to understand their consumers’ behaviours and habits and influence their buying decisions through these understandings.
Secure, high-performance computing on demand
World class backup
Flexible, measurable recovery
Protect your valuable data by replicating your databases securely into the Cloud, ensuring your critical business applications are recoverable in the event of a disaster.
Traditionally, building a DBR solution requires the duplication of…
• A secondary data centre
• Physical servers and storage
But the cost doesn’t stop there. DR solutions involve…
• Support staff
• Ongoing utility expenses
• Periodic hardware refreshes
All of which sit idle waiting for a disaster that may never happen.
Alternatively, you can eliminate the expensive burden of disaster recovery sites and infrastructure and implement a low cost and simple hybrid Cloud based solution.
Your data is secure over the wire and at rest. Once your DR database is in the Cloud, you can rest assured that it is stored on replicated storage in more than one data centre. With a 99.9% service availability, you can sleep easy knowing you can recover from a disaster at a moment’s notice.
Using built-in and vendor standard technologies, information is transmitted efficiently to your Cloud recovery server. Once the baseline copy of your database to the recovery server is secured, only transactional changes are sent as defined by your Recovery Point Objective (RPO). Built-in features such as compression and encryption help boost IT efficiency.LEARN MORE
