Blue Saffron Backup and Disaster Recovery

What is Blue Saffron Backup?

Blue Saffron Backup is a simple, automated service to enable you to protect your critical business data at an affordable price. Backups can include data from laptops, desktop PCs and servers.

Blue Saffron Backup is available as a managed service or as components within bespoke in house data center developments.

The technology is especially suited to a distributed environment by providing a secure and automated solution that can be activated and controlled by a centralize resource.

By automating the traditionally manual tasks associated with daily data backup the system reduces cost, increases effectiveness and minimises risk.

The technology can supplement or replace traditional backup methods, such as tapes and CDs, with an automated, off-site system which requires very limited IT resources and no system downtime.

Data is stored securely with the highest levels of protection against loss or damage and can be readily and securely retrieved using a simple web based interface.

The service is supported by world-class Blue Saffron infrastructure, and supported by the experience and expertise of Blue Saffron professionals.

Data backup plays a pivotal role in disaster recovery and business continuity planning. With data archiving, mirroring and remote access as part of the feature set Blue Saffron Backup provides a powerful underpinning to any disaster recovery plan.

Blue Saffron offer backup on one of two industry leading platforms Attix 5 (www.attix5.com) and Infrascale (www.infrascale.com).

Strong audit tracking is an implicit feature.

What is Blue Saffron Disaster Recovery ?

This is an additional feature of the Infrascale platform.

The world of disaster recovery has made some quantum leaps over the last few years. Cloud computing in particular is helping companies of all sizes migrate applications from on-site systems to hosted environments accessible through the internet. The cloud is now enabling organizations to safeguard critical resources from potential disruptions — whether they be micro (e.g. human error, UPS battery failures, equipment failures, etc.) or macro (e.g., site-wide failures caused by natural disasters). The schematic below illustrates the main platform capabilities.

The world of disaster recovery has made some quantum leaps over the last few years. Cloud computing in particular is helping companies of all sizes migrate applications from on-site systems to hosted environments accessible through the internet. The cloud is now enabling organizations to safeguard critical resources from potential disruptions — whether they be micro (e.g. human error, UPS battery failures, equipment failures, etc.) or macro (e.g., site-wide failures caused by natural disasters).

The Blue Saffron Disaster Recovery service, through its “hybrid” approach to DR, aims to significantly reduce both cost and recovery times.

“Hybrid“ refers to a data protection architecture that combines on-premise (i.e. based at the customer premise or data center) and off-premise “as-a-service deployment” models.

The on-premise component of a hybrid service behaves like local Network Attached Storage (NAS), backing up data locally—while also performing deduplication, compression, file conversion and other appropriate operations. These operations reduce consumption of on- and off-site storage resources, minimize bandwidth requirements and compress both backup and restore times
