Rating:

Everyone knows that having a backup solution is a must but backup policies always differ depending on significance, type etc. of company data. For instance, important data used by the whole company on a daily basis and where loss of these data may even result in bankruptcy, should be secured by the highest protection level. On the other hand, less important archived data that are kept for future purposes can be protected by a lower protection level e.g. one off-site backup copy only.

Most often, to fulfill data security needs of advanced environments, an additional Disaster Recovery plan is required. Such a plan is a combination of backup and other additional protection mechanisms e.g. disk redundancy or even server redundancy. All of those elements usually have to be provided by different third party tools, adding to overall costs and complexity.

Open-E JovianDSS with On- & Off-site Data Protection doesn’t require any additional tools and supports many types of backup schemes which is why this software with High Availability and other built-in protection mechanisms is a perfect solution for even the most advanced Disaster Recovery plans.
