Integrated or stand-alone: Recovery Assurance through automated DR testing
The fastest backup is of no use if you have to make sure that the secure database has been corrupted and can no longer be created. However, manual DR-testing is associated with a high level of personnel and financial expenditure and is therefore a more than annoying duty. The solution is called Unitrends ReliableDR. Snapshots are loaded onto a replication site and tested for resilience in a sandbox. In so doing, so-called "Certified Recovery Points" are created, which can be used later. Unlike other solutions, RDR is not just a simple test of whether a VM can be restarted, but users themselves can set the parameters under which to test. First the server up and then the corresponding database. Also tested are RTOs (Recovery Time Objectives) and RPOs (Recovery Point Objective), which are defined according to the requirements. Once set up, RDR can run as often as the customer wants - without any further effort and with auditable Reports.
