How Does Disaster Recovery Work?

CloudEndure’s automated disaster recovery solution helps an organization to ensure continuity of the business. The solution is apt for workloads that are physical, virtual, hybrid, as well as cloud-based.With a single click, you can ensure Business continuity and IT resilience because of the one-touch disaster recovery solution.It uses continuous replication at the block-level, the orchestration of the application stack and machine conversion automatically.The zero or near-zero RPO and RTO are possible for various applications because of this.It also causes an 80% reduction in the  disaster recovery expenses

So How does disaster recovery work actually?

1.Initial synchronization:

In this step, agent needs to be installed on the source machines for asynchronous launch and block level replication of the data. A lightweight staging area needs to be created for replication. By using minimum computation and low-cost storage, the data s synchronized in a cost-effective manner.

2.Perpetual replication:

Continuous data protection technology is used for ensuring the protection of the source machines, after the setup and synchronization of the target machines. If any changes occur in the source machine, it ill gets synchronized with the target machine on a real-time basis. It is possible to spin the target machines in their updated state at any time.

3.Conducting non-disruptive tests:

The disaster recovery drills do not have a negative impact on the machine performance. They do not interrupt the continuous replication process.

4.The process of failover:

This is needed whenever a disaster occurs. In such a situation spinning the machines can be done in a few minutes. The booting of the machine to the target infrastructure is accomplished natively through automated conversion. The need for the time taking network configurations can be eliminated because of the automated application stack orchestration. The point-in-time recovery technology can be used for launching the target machine in its earlier state.

5.The process of failback though a single click:

This process helps in recovery of the system to its original state with normal operations. Here the direction of replication is reversed fromthe target machine to the source machine.It also ensures the replication of changes which had occurred during the disaster in the target machine back to the source machine.
