Backup Restore and Disaster Recovery
In the present landscape, businesses are running into a number of problems in trying
to deal with the backup and recovery of critical data. With increasingly stringent
regulations and threats from terrorism and infrastructure failure, the importance
of business continuity solutions, regular backups, and the ability to restore when
needed has never been higher.
In many organizations, backup strategies that are incomplete or ineffective can
cost companies time and money unnecessarily. Limited IT support leaves data at risk,
while traditional batch backup is inadequate and labor-intensive. Traditional offsite
tape vaulting is expensive and requires time-consuming physical tape removal and
transportation to an offsite facility for disaster recovery protection.
Insufficient staff resources and increasing exposure to risk of data loss are prompting
business operators and IT managers to consider using online vaulting managed service
providers. As the value of their data increases, companies look to managed services
as a better way to ensure secure backup and successful recovery of their data. The
convenience of having a managed service that automates capture, removal, storage
and recovery, without the inconvenience of handling tape, is invaluable.
What you get with the Pugmarks Offsite Backup and Security solution:
- Pugmarks deploys the Veritas system and custom developed routines for periodic
backup and integrity checks of backups. We deploy NAS, SAN, hard drive based media,
as well as DLTs to perform backups of running systems.
- Pugmarks solutions both protect remote office data more effectively and
reduce costs dramatically by eliminating the requirement for discrete remote office
backups. This eliminates the problems of incomplete and costly remote data protection.
- Rather than dedicated file servers in the remote office, Pugmarks customers
are backing up their remote office across the globe in real time over the WAN.
- The data is housed, managed, and protected right in the Pugmarks datacenter
according to true IT “best practices.” New data created by remote users automatically
resides in the datacenter, and a 20-year-old problem is solved without adding incremental
management costs or disciplines.
- For customers that require a more extensive backup scenario extending past
shared files, Pugmarks also enables attached workstations to back up individual
data from the desktop directly to Pugmarks backup servers. Using industry standard
software, this data is sent over the network at rapid speeds to the datacenter,
where it is safely managed according to the organization's policies.
Helping ensure that data and applications are always available is integral to the
company's utility computing strategy. Veritas NetBackup software provides the highest
data protection and recovery service levels to meet the stringent IT requirements
of today's enterprise, while helping to drive down costs. Veritas NetBackup is a
key building block in the company's backup and recovery product portfolio, integrating

recovery as a utility, and with VERITAS Data Lifecycle Manager, providing data archiving,
