Rapid Recovery is a portfolio of options that can offer increased systems resilience, dramatically reduced recovery time frames and minimal data loss. The Rapid Recovery portfolio includes many high availability techniques including data vaulting, journaling and mirroring solutions for operating systems, databases and applications. The portfolio also supports electronic backup and retrieval of critical data and information. IBM's proven techniques are available across a wide range of multi-vendor platforms, from the smallest personal computers to the largest mainframe. Rapid Recovery services enable you to reduce data loss to that of the last logged production transactions at the time of an outage emergency and make systems available again within hours or minutes or even seconds depending upon the techniques employed
Working with you, our technical specialists and consultants assess your existing IT environment or the particular system concerned. Where necessary, IBM specialists measure key parameters for the recovery solution, such as network bandwidth, amount of data, number of transactions and processing power. Using these metrics, IBM conducts a workshop with your technical experts to design your unique recovery solution and develop a project plan.
You might choose to stop here. Alternatively, with your acceptance of the solution, our specialists can also implement the project plan. IBM can potentially provide all the hardware, software and network components of the solution at its data centres, or you may wish to provide your own solution components and/or use your own data centres; either way IBM can implement the solution. Following implementation and synchronisation of production and recovery systems, a comprehensive resilience and disaster recovery test is performed. If required, IBM can continue to provide ongoing support or management of the solution to deliver a complete end to end service.
Rapid Recovery solutions are always designed by IBM's technical architects and, of course, in each case must be tailored to meet your exact requirements. So you can be confident that it's the best solution for you.
