The importance of a disaster recovery plan for your organisation

Just seconds of downtime can have significant financial and operational impacts on your organisation, not to mention the loss of trust and negative brand reputation from customers and users.

Netmetix disaster recovery plans help mitigate against:

  • Operational delays
  • Financial losses
  • Reputation damage

Netmetix' hybrid backup and disaster recovery service

Protecting your data, both on-premise and off-site
Working alongside an on-premise virtualisation solution such as Hyper-V or VMWare, Netcare System Recovery provides continuous protection and an enterprise grade DR platform.
A 100% private network for all data transmission and storage
Secure and flexible control over the level of access to your storage accounts that your applications and enterprise environments demand, based on the type and subset of networks​ used.
24/7 monitor & restore using state-of-the-art recovery techniques
Our managed replication service ensures a continuous replication of your data is stored off-site within our secure NOC (Network Operations Centre). Minimising downtime during a disaster.

Why Choose Netcare

Your environment can be protected by automating the replication of the virtual machines based on policies that you set and control. Recovery PRO coordinates and manages the ongoing replication of data by integrating with existing technologies such as Hyper-V Replica, System Center and SQL Server AlwaysOn.

Site Recovery also integrates with SAN replication options from storage vendors such as NetApp, HP and EMC to help further simplify and improve your disaster recovery protection. This capability is currently in preview.

You can further simplify your disaster recovery protection by replicating and still benefit from the simplicity, automation, customisable recovery plans, health monitoring and orchestrated recovery that the service provides. One of the primary roadblocks to comprehensive protection of applications is the expense of establishing and maintaining a secondary site for disaster recovery. Recovery PRO will be your disaster recovery site.

Site Recovery monitors the state of your protected instances continuously and remotely. When replicating between two sites that you control, your virtual machines’ data and replication remains on your networks. All communication with the DR site is encrypted. When replicating to the secondary site, your data is encrypted and you can also select encryption for data at rest.

The service helps automate the orderly recovery of services in the event of a site outage at the primary data centre or your office location. Virtual machines can be brought up in an orchestrated fashion to help restore service quickly, even for complex multi-tier workloads.

Recovery plans are simple to create through the management portal where they are stored. The plans can be as simple or as advanced as your business requirements demand, including the execution of custom Windows PowerShell scripts and pauses for manual interventions. Networks can also be customised by mapping virtual networks between the primary and recovery sites. These plans can be tested whenever you like without disrupting the services at your primary location.

Netmetix proactively manages and monitors your offsite DR platform. This fully managed and fully monitored service ensures each VM’s heath is monitored daily by the NETCARE System Recovery monitoring team. Should a problem occur, the customer will be contacted and informed of the problem.
