Everbex provides a wide range of Data Backup and Replication technologies from the world’s leading vendors.
Our close relationships with partners such as Veeam, Altaro and Acronis allow us to design and deliver class-leading solutions for data back-up, restore, replication, archiving and recovery.
Backup and recovery describe the process of creating and storing copies of data that can be used to protect organizations against data loss. Recovery from a backup typically involves restoring the data to the original location, or to an alternate location where it can be used in place of the lost or damaged data.
Data protection is the process of safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise or loss. Consequently, a large part of a data protection strategy is ensuring that data can be restored quickly after any corruption or loss. Protecting data from compromise and ensuring data privacy are other key components of data protection. The term data protection is used to describe both the operational backup of data and business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR).

Recovery Time Objective (RTO)
Measures the amount of time a computer system or application can stop functioning before it is considered intolerable to the business or organization.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO)
Describes a point in time to which data must be restored in order to be acceptable to the owner(s) of the processes supported by that data.
Test Time Objective (TTO)
Measures the time and effort required to test a disaster recovery plan to ensure its effectiveness. For an organization to be confident in their recovery strategy,
Business Continuity Planning (BCP)
Is a methodology used to create a plan for how an organization will resume partially or completely interrupted critical function(s) within a predetermined time after a disaster or disruption.
Backup vs. Replication
People often confuse the terms backup and replication, but there are several distinctions:
Backup solutions keep a history of the data whereas replication only keeps the latest state of the data.
In case of a crash/outage/hardware failure, a replication solution will have the latest image of the data whereas a backup solution will only have the latest backup, whenever it was performed.
If a logical data loss scenario occurs, like a human error (someone accidentally deleted necessary data) or a malicious attack, the replication solution will automatically reflect that data loss to the other replica, and thus will not be helpful. A backup solution will have the latest backup before the data loss occurred.
Backup solutions are typically cheaper and require less bandwidth.
