Do you have a backup strategy? Good. But it’s equally important to have a restoration strategy. Backing up your data is pointless unless you know you can actually restore that data in an emergency. Unless you’ve tested your backups to make sure you can restore data from them, you only think your data is backed up. It’s also critically important to store a copy of your backup data somewhere off-site – and with today’s cloud replication options, that’s easier than ever. We can help you develop not only a backup strategy, but a process for testing your backups on a regular basis to ensure that you can restore data from them, and a process for automatically sending a copy of your most critical data off site – whether it’s to our own secure repository in a Tier 1 data center, or to the public cloud provider of your choice.
XIOLOGIX BACKUP AS A SERVICE (BaaS)
Everyone needs an off-site place to store their backups. Many organizations don’t have a second site, and rotating tapes or removable media off site is cumbersome. Increasingly, customers are turning to the cloud as a better alternative.
Backup as a service (BaaS) is a way to back up data that by purchasing backup and recovery services from an online data backup provider like Xiologix. Instead of performing backup through a centralized, on-premises IT department, BaaS connects systems to a private, public or hybrid cloud managed by the outside provider. Backup as a service is easier to manage than other offsite services. Instead of worrying about rotating and managing tapes or hard disks at an offsite location, data storage administrators can offload maintenance and management to the provider.
With Veeam Cloud Connect, virtual or physical workloads are easily sent to a hosted cloud repository offered by Xiologix through a secure SSL connection. This is all achieved without the cost and complexity of building and maintaining an off-site infrastructure, and with no additional Veeam licensing required.
Xiologix is proud to offer cloud hosting at our Tier 5® Platinum rated multi-tenant/colocation data center located inside the United States.

All about backup: Why businesses choose the cloud
All about backup: Why businesses choose the cloudThere's no one reason why companies move to the cloud. You hear many reasons: cost is often mentioned, although a bit less these days. You often hear security cited, as providers have more to spend on technical excellence. And you certainly hear flexibility mentioned; it's probably the main reason at present. What's not generally spoken about is the ease of disaster recovery, yet this is something t…
Don’t let an MBA near your disaster recovery plan
When you work at an entity that collects sensitive, real-time data and is responsible for keeping it up-to-date and available to certain public institutions, you’d think a solid backup and disaster recovery plan would be high on the list of organizational priorities. In theory, yes — but all it takes is one hotshot manager to break what didn't need to be fixed in the first place.With this corporate body, branch offices were located in…
How to make cloud backup a no-brainer
The 3-2-1 rule is simple and easy to remember for your backup strategy: You want three copies of your data, in two different formats, with one of those copies offsite. Having three copies ensures redundancy (because they should be in different locations and formats). Using different formats goes back to the tape/disk/optical mindset of the past.Many organizations have moved away from tape as primary backup to hard disk, using …

8 ingredients of an effective disaster recovery plan

Which just goes to show that “not all disasters come in the form of major storms with names and categories,” says Bob Davis, CMO, Atlantis Computing.“Electrical fires, broken water pipes, failed air conditioning units [and rogue monkeys] can cause just as much damage,” he says. And while “bu…

IoT, outages show importance of a cloud backup and recovery strategy
Cloud backup and recovery have long been a priority for enterprises running production workloads in the cloud. But, today, as trends like the internet of things spur massive amounts of data for organizations to store and protect, IT teams must evolve their cloud backup and recovery strategy — and make recovery a prime concern. "Data protection is changing in the world of cloud computing, as IoT comes into play [and] big data systems come into play," says David Linthicum, SVP o…
SRM – Array Based Replication vs. vSphere Replication – Virtual Blocks
SRM supports two different replication technologies, Storage Array or Array-Based Replication and vSphere Replication. One of the key decisions when implementing SRM is which technology to use and for what VMs. The two technologies can be used together in an SRM environment though not to protect the same VM. Given that, what are the differences and why would you use one over the other? This table will provide all the answers you need: Array-Based ReplicationvSphere ReplicationT…
