Backup & Recovery

Protect against data loss with backup and recovery solutions from North American Systems

Making copies of data is how data has been traditionally protected. Data backup, or replication was normally done locally, to protect against human error, data corruption, and system failure. In addition, some replication to backup data remotely for disaster recovery, preserving valuable data in case a disaster happens to the primary data source.

The Problems with Data Backup Systems

Traditional data backup, which required a disruption of application hosts and therefore the production environment, often meant copying data to tape, and more recently, disk. In addition, tape backups, and even disk backups, oftentimes did not recover in full.

The Gartner Group reports that 40 to 50% of all backups are not recoverable in full, and that 60% of all backups fail in general.

Even if the backup copy was fully recoverable, recovery times were very long, especially if the backup copy was located on tape. As data storage requirements increased, the “backup window” started to shrink. This backup window was the required downtime needed by the application servers to complete the backup operations. As business become more global and dependent on the web, 24x7 availability of many business applications was required.
