Data Replication – Best Disaster Recovery Plan

Data (files and folders) on servers have grown exponentially in the last 10 to 15 years. An office with 150 users would have an average data of 250 to 400 GB back around the year 2000. Nowadays, an office of a 150 users could easily average 1.5 to 2TB worth of data. This is of course contributed to many reasons such as higher resolution graphics, more reliance on digital forms, departments and companies wanting to go completely paperless.

This is of course considered to be great progress into the digital age but this also brings its own challenges to IT departments. Systems administrators now need to back up more data than they ever had before which possible given they have all the necessary hardware equipment. What becomes the real challenge is the time it takes to back up the data and most importantly how long it would take to restore it.

It is not uncommon to see an office of 500 employees with 15TB of data. The fear is if their SAN or network shares go offline due to hardware or data corruption, then it could take a week or more to bring this data restored. This of course may not be “acceptable” or even affordable by management. Many companies have lost customers and business because of similar outages. We are certainly not prune to that.

GuruSquad has assisted many businesses and government agencies worldwide to overcome these scenarios with the use of GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise. Given storage is now very cheap and affordable, businesses (of all sizes) can now stand up another “server or NAS” and replicate their data to standby shares. This reduces the downtime to minutes instead of days or even weeks to recover from a disastrous outage. As soon as an outage is declared, system administrators can quickly reroute the users to access the stand by shares while they work on bringing their main servers up and running. In the past such scenarios were not possible due to the high cost of storage hardware, but nowadays this has become one of the most affordable components in terms of hardware.

Backup remote machines and VIPs across the Internet

Telecommuters and people working permanently from home have become part of the norm in more and more companies every year. While there are many advantages to offering such a privilege to employees, it does present its own share of challenges to  IT departments.

One of the main challenges presented is how to backup remote machines as relying on the users to do it themselves almost never works out and in the event of a harddrive crash, data corruption, accidental deletion, or getting data infected with a virus, the IT department will always have to assume the responsibility of recovering the data somehow.

This is a common scenario we see with many of our customers who have elected to use GS RIchCopy 360 Enterprise to overcome backing up their remote users and executive’s machines. GS RichCopy 360 provides the option to copy users’ data across the internet  (using AES256 encryption) to a server in their main data center which is running GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise RTA (Remote Transfer Agent).

One RTA server can service many users (as many as a few hundred) given the hardware resources are available.

GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise can be set to run as a service so that data replication is run at set time intervals but furthermore, it comes with Real-Time feature to capture files created\modified in-between intervals.

Coupled with Byte-level replication which only sends the deltas in the files instead of sending the entire file cuts the replication time to possibly 10 to 15 minutes per day instead of 6 hours per day.

Copy data from Amazon AWS EC2 to the datacenter

It is has been very common to see companies and organizations take advantage of deploying virtual machine instances in Amazon EC2 cloud. The main obstacle they face is how to keep the data on these servers backed up in their own company’s data center as a way of backup. It could also be the other way around where data needs to be replicated from their datacenter to VMs deployed in Amazon EC2 connected via VPN tunnel.

GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise has helped many customers facing these challenges by replicating files and folders (data) between their datacenter and the Amazon AWS EC2 cloud. GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise offers features like copying files over a single TCP port where the client gets installed on the source and a lightweight agent gets installed on the destination and data is transmitted between them. To conserve on bandwidth consumption, GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise comes with byte-level replication where only the deltas in the file are sent instead of sending the whole file every time it is changed.

The great news is that this solution does not only work with the AWS cloud but works with any other cloud provider for as long as both instances (datacenter and cloud) are running MS Windows operating systems. Cloud providers could be AWS, Microsoft Azure, RackSpace, …etc.

GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise runs on the following operating systems:

  • MS Windows 2012 R2
  • MS Windows 2012
  • MS Windows 2008 R2
  • MS Windows 2003 (64 and 32 bit systems are supported).
  • Or even windows workstation OS such as Windows 7 or later.

Below are two different ways to use GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise to replicate data (files and folders) from the datacenter to Amazon AWS EC2.

1) This scenario shows multiple data centers connected to Amazon AWS VM EC2 instances using Amazon VPC (VPN tunnels).



2) This scenario shows one server from datacenter replicating its data (files and folders) to an EC2 instance in Amazon AWS across the internet. (not the data transmission is using a single port which is fully encrypted using AES 256 encryption).
