Virtual Disaster Recovery

Your entire business infrastructure
replicated for restoration on demand

Don’t let IT problems turn into catastrophes. With Virtual Disaster Recovery (VDR) from Global Micro you will have a cast-iron contingency plan that will keep your enterprise up and running no matter what.

Virtual Disaster Recovery explained

Disk corruption, power failure, malware attack: in the event of an IT incident, how quickly can you access your back-ups, and restore your operating environment to full capacity? With VDR we can restore your IT infrastructure within 10 minutes.

We all know the importance of maintaining an up-to-date backup of important data, because no matter how reliable your IT infrastructure is, it’s never immune to failure.

Hardware failure isn’t the only reason you need disaster recovery. In one recent ransomware attack in the US, a hospital found it was cheaper and faster to pay the ransom than try to restore untainted data from its backups – would your organisation fare any better?

VDR protects you against every eventuality, with carefully constructed contingency planning and multiple layers of failsafes.

Our Approach
We select the best technology

Ultimate security, but highly cost effective

Our specialists will help you to devise a customised VDR plan which involves not just backing up data, but maintaining virtual machine profiles from an operational environment which can be deployed to replace a production server in a matter of minutes.

VDR doesn’t just back-up your data: it’s an entire redundant infrastructure for your business, with virtual machines that are “pre-restored” from backups for near-instant access when the need arises. But because it’s based in the cloud, it remains highly cost effective: we’ll only charge for these machines when you need to use them.

Your business can keep on working while the original production environment is restored.
