Carmel talks to me about Sungard AS Ireland and what they do, recovery time objectives, who some of their clients are. Carmel also mentions their growth strategy and plans for the next 5 years, how eco friendly they are, and how they make sure their customers are compliant with data security.
Two key factors in understanding data recovery: 1.Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) 2.Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) RTO describes how rapidly your business needs to be able to recover after losing data and can be measured in hours or days. Where as RPO describes the amount of data lost measured in hours.
IT organizations and service providers alike, are looking for ways to attract application owners to consume their DR services. In order to offer true DRaaS, infrastructure planners need technologies which can integrate directly with virtualized environments to enable customized service levels that match the various recovery point & recovery time objectives that end users demand. http://storageswiss.com/2014/08/26/four-requirements-for-adding-dr-as-a-service-to-vmware/
