Data Protection

Ensuring the availability of mission critical applications, as well as the integrity of its related data is vital to an enterprise’s success.

Service interruption and data loss can jeopardize business process and negatively impact revenue, long-term growth and brand image. Furthermore, insufficient recovery processes and contingency planning can put employees and customers at risk. Partnering with p1 Technologies to build a comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery strategy will keep your business running. You’ll sleep well at night, knowing your team is prepared for almost any interruption.

Back-up, Recovery and Archive

You’re not in the business of backup…But p1 is! And while no one loves backup (we do) all organizations know they must have the ability to recover from data loss or corruption, quickly and consistently.

Just as an insurance policy is judged partly by how cost-effective and hassle-free it is when “all is well,” the greatest value is demonstrated when it’s time to file a claim. Similarly, the costs and day-to-day management of backup solutions are key considerations, but the most important metric for their value to an organization is determined by how quickly and efficiently recovery is achieved when data loss or corruption occurs.

Innovations in backup and archive technologies have improved routine operations and catastrophic event response for administrators. These new technologies offer simple management platforms and take full advantage of cost-savings and efficiencies such as data reduction, direct Public Cloud integration and instantiation. Now you really can “have your cake and eat it too”, with a modern backup and archive environment by p1 Technologies.

p1 Technologies’ proven process for backup system architecture begins with a comprehensive assessment to determine the relative value of your data to the business, and advances with a step-by-step design analysis to ensure recovery SLAs will be met, including:

Categorizing applications and data according to their business value
Determining technical barriers that prevent meeting established or desired SLAs
Identifying archivable data to shrink active backup sets and reduce daily operational impact
Assessing storage technologies and data protection software options to determine the “best-fit” combination that meets your budget and service-level requirements
Developing a detailed implementation roadmap for the selected technologies

p1 will help you choose from a variety of technologies and strategies to implement the best fit DR solution for your organization.  Perhaps your business processes and SLA’s may require the speed and efficiency of storage based synchronous replication, or maybe your applications would benefit more from the agility and flexibility of a solution implemented further up the stack with container, VM, or DB level protection mechanisms. Regardless, p1 will work with you to identify and clearly differentiate all available options.

Disaster Recovery

Often, a disaster recovery (DR) solution is inadequate, and far too often that short-coming is only discovered during a significant failure event, just when it’s needed most. There can be many reasons why an enterprise’s DR plan comes up short: insufficient budget, changing or misunderstood service-level requirements, varying infrastructure components and unknown application interdependencies are just a few of the possibilities. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Whether your enterprise currently lacks a DR solution, or you aren’t certain the existing DR plan will perform when called upon, p1 Technologies’ data protection team will provide the solutions and services you need to ensure that your business is prepared for almost any failure, and that it will recover from such a failure quickly.

Plan Testing

The best way to ensure the reliability and effectiveness of a DR plan is to test it regularly. p1’s data protection engineering team will put your DR plan through its paces when the stakes are low so it will be there for you when the stakes are high. We’ll identify errors and/or omissions in the plan, which left unrectified, could prove costly in the event of a disaster. Regular DR plan testing also raises the awareness of your team, creating an increased understanding of roles and responsibilities within the process, ensuring a well-orchestrated response in the event of a significant outage.

The availability and integrity of data is vital to your enterprise’s success.
