Carbonite Recover securely replicates critical systems from your primary environment to the Carbonite® cloud. This ensures that an up-to-date secondary copy is available for failover at any moment, minimizing downtime as well as costs. You pay for what you use, when you use it – and not for idle resources.
This type of disaster recovery has been used for many years in banks and telecom operators. It is costly and is based on high capex / opex policy and procedure. However, it has shown to be a robust process.
Clients must rent a certain capacity from Cloud Acropolis and have them on at all time. The client’s administrator must setup the servers in a proper manner and setup replication at OS or binary level of the application in one hand and Databased synchronization via ASYNCH in the other hand. Basically all the needed files and DB logs need to be sent to the VMs in Cloud acropolis every 5 to 10 minutes. It is important to check that all the changes are implemented at each transfer. The normal periodicity of this transfer is every 15 minutes.
In time of Disaster, the Client’s IT administrator must update its network settings so the users can be directed to cloud acropolis IP addresses
