Meet All Your RTO/RPO Metric Needs

When considering Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and

Recovery Point Objective (RPO) solutions, it is important

to identify a partner who ensures your data is being

protected and backed up in the event of an outage. Host.net

creates customized solutions focused on meeting the specific

needs of customers for RTO and RPO.

Machines Within the Host.net Smart Cloud Architecture

Host.net extends the high availability of its platform from the local level to a regional level through block replication. You can replicate production VMs to an alternate site on the Host.net backbone. This provides protection against regional disasters and keeps you up and running. The replication process is a part of the native platform and is therefore non-intrusive to the daily operations of the VMs and their applications. You can also perform site-to-site failover testing without impacting production, giving you peace of mind while meeting your compliancy needs.

Machines Outside the Host.net Smart Cloud Architecture

By making use of VMs in place of physical machines at the remote site, Host.net can drastically reduce the capital costs involved in deploying a disaster recovery solution. Whether your physical servers are located in one of our colocation facilities or your own facility, you can replicate to remote VMs over a private Layer 2 circuit or public Internet circuit. If there is ever a need to failover to the disaster recovery site, you can rest assured knowing your critical services are running on a state-of-the-art, fully redundant virtualization platform.

Disaster Recovery Workspace

If your office is hit by an unforeseen circumstance, whether disabled by a fire, flood, natural disaster, or equipment failure, Host.net offers guaranteed and customized disaster recovery workspace. Our dedicated workspace options are designed to keep your business operating in a comfortable setting with minimal disruption. Located in private, secure, temperature-controlled suites, our fully functional DR spaces are powered by diesel generators and supported by our custom network. Your dedicated workspace is always on standby, ensuring you have 24/7 access whenever you need it.

It’s just one more way we work hard to keep you up and running.

Disaster Recovery (DR) TERMINOLOGY

Recovery Point Objective

An RPO is the largest limit volume of time that can be tolerated between mirroring your data. Some enterprises may need an RPO of zero, which mean they can’t lose any data. This requires continuous synchronous replication. Other enterprises can tolerate modest information gaps of seconds, minutes, hours or even days.

Recovery Time Objective

An RTO is a target interval between when an outage occurs and when an organization needs to be up and running to avoid serious consequences. This includes the time it takes to detect a failure, ready a backup site, initialize the unsuccessful focus and perform any network pattern to reroute requests to a backup site.

Hot, Warm, & Cold Backup

A hot backup site typically houses mirrored standby servers that are always accessible to run a focus after a disaster. This is a costly choice adored by enterprises with brief RTOs and RPOs. A warm backup site generally keeps a primary site backed up, but it can take a warm backup more time to recover after a failure because warm resources, such as tape backups, are not immediately available. A cold backup site mostly has an RPO of hours or days. It is a low-cost option for applications that do not need severe accessibility guarantees.

Geographic Diversity

Another pivotal disaster liberation term, geographic diversity is important since primary and backup sites should be far enough apart from one another to minimize the possibility that a single disaster takes down both sites.
